This apartment is Sold


Unique in design, high-quality materials, and durability. The leasehold has been pre-paid for for 50 years and the house is very well maintained (painted inside and out in 2022).

Light and space characterize this magnificent and very spacious mansion (2009, GFA 311 m2, energy label A+) on Steigereiland Zuid.

By making full use of the good sun exposure and the central open stairwell with glass roof, daylight is felt throughout the house. The floors are connected vertically by the stair column. The higher you go, the wider the void-like stairwell and the larger and lighter the spaces become. The living areas are therefore located on the upper floors and have a wide view of the water and the surrounding area. Each floor has its own terrace and access to the outside.

This house was designed by architect Lidewij Lenders, chosen as the best design in 2010 and mentioned in the Architecture Yearbook 2010.

Under her guidance, this house was built and finished to a very high quality level, with great attention to detail, with no expense spared. With CLT (cross laminated timber) a sustainable design has been realized that provides a robust appearance and a serene ambiance.

The outside is finished in Swedish red and on the inside the walls are provided with a Whitewash treatment and the color scheme is Grauweiss. The combination with the polished concrete floors throughout the house, all with underfloor heating, creates a beautiful and timeless image.
The use of high-quality sustainable materials results in a low-maintenance and spacious living home.

The design uses the principle of passive solar energy: large south-facing windows ensure that solar heat can enter the house in winter through the low position of the sun and is retained in the house, while the balconies and the roof overhang above the terrace prevent the sun from shining directly in during the summer. The higher sun position in the summer contributes to this.

Much has been written about this famous home. A lot can be found on the own home website;
