In a spot that we truly believe deserves to be called one of the most beautiful in The Netherlands, is this (monumental) detached dike house with a separate rear annex (via a back entrance), spanning a total of 225 sqm. This dike house was almost completely newly built in 1993 and is immaculately painted. The wonderful vast garden, with stunning landscaping, offers a typically Dutch view of the meadows and enjoys sunlight exposure throughout the day. From the front, the view is easily just as gorgeous: looking out over the Durgerdam marina and the waters of BuitenIJ.
DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS AND TO ENSURE YOUR SAFETY AND PEACE OF MIND, WE WILL NOW ONLY SCHEDULE OUR VIEWINGS INDIVIDUALLY. IN ADDITION, WE OFFER VIRTUAL VIEWINGS OF THE PROPERTY THAT WE CAN SHARE WITH YOU.
DO NOT HESITATE TO CALL US FOR AN APPOINTMENT.
Layout dike house (ca. 175 sqm):
Enter the wide hall from the dike. Its two windows have led the current owners to create a workspace here. The hall also accesses the restroom and features a glass pane along the stairs leading to the first floor, and overlooking the kitchen downstairs. Beautiful (antique) wooden beams immediately command attention, and serve to visually separate the space from the back room.
The fireplace features a mantel with traditional Boeren Witjes tiles.
The back room is used as a dining room and has two Juliette balconies.
Both spaces are fitted with several cupboards and closets, neatly, and almost seamlessly tucked away in the wall.
The open staircase leads down to the garden level. The kitchen/diner is exceptionally bright and has a double ceiling height. From here, a door opens to the vast garden.
This level also includes a large bedroom with fitted wall-to-wall wardrobes with sliding doors. French doors open directly to the garden from the bedroom. There is also a large bathroom, with a bathtub, shower and toilet. There are several storage spaces and a pantry with the laundry station.
The first floor features 3 good-sized bedrooms, one of which with a bedbox. Ceiling heights here are good, varying from ca. 2.6m to 2.9m. This level also includes a bathroom with a sink, shower and toilet.
The long garden can also be accessed from the dike. The garden is beautifully landscaped: with large grey tiles, several planters with fruit trees and elevated terraces. The perfect setting for wonderful get-togethers and garden parties!
A long storage sged has been built here: perfect for your garden accessories, sailing equipment, surfboards, etc.
There is a deck at the back by a creek, from where you can look out over the meadows.
Layout 'rear annex' (ca. 50 sqm):
Accessible via the gate to the right of the house and the garden. Entrance to the hallway with a compact kitchen unit. Bathroom with a shower, toilet and sink. There is a room at the front, and a room at the back. Both open to the garden.
A staircase leads to the first floor. This level can be used as a bedroom.
Area / accessibility:
A home in Amsterdam, but in an area with greenery and water! Unique. And yet, so close to the hustle and bustle of the city center. Via A10 beltway exit S114, Durgerdammerdijk is just a 10-minute commute. Within cycling distance of the fairtrade Landmarkt supermarket. There are a few small eateries/cafes on Durgerdammerdijk itself. Public transportation (belbus/ bus to order) nearly stops out front of the house and will take you to Noord-Zuidlijn metro stop Noord within 20 minutes - with direct service to the city center and Zuidas.
The area is ideal for exploring by bicycle: toward Broek in Waterland, Ilpendam, Monnickendam or Marken.
Watersports-lovers couldn't wish for more: across from yacht club Het Y.
Or simply take the dog for a walk along the dike...
