The first bedroom is currently used as a guest room and the sauna is located here with an adjoining private bathroom with walk-in shower and bathroom furniture.

The metal gray staircase with solid wengé-wood steps takes you up to the open-plan living room floor of the penthouse.

The open and luxurious Bulthaup kitchen is fully equipped with built-in appliances: a steam oven, combi-oven, fridge / freezer combination, induction cooker and dishwasher at working height. A lot of extra work space was created in the free standing kitchen island, which contains 6 big drawers and 4 cupboards.

The floors throughout the apartment are fitted with floating parquet flooring with a whitewashed finish.
Terrace: the roof terrace (circa 40 m2) gives the penthouse the ultimate finishing touch. Not just because of the breathtaking views, but because of its size. With its partially overhanging roof this is a fabulous place to be, both in the summer and on warm spring and autumn days. On summer evenings you can enjoy watching the Sun setting in the Northsea.
