Netherlands Week! The dreamiest houseboat, circa 1913, located in the Oudeschans neighborhood in the CENTER of Amsterdam!
I’m in looooove. What an absolute dream this would be to live in! What a beautiful location, beautiful old home! Styled really beautifully! And it’s a boat! What more could you want?
From the listing on Funda:
The Montelbaanstoren on the Oudeschans existed for centuries when Corrie II was launched in 1913. The motor vessel has now been adapted to the requirements of the 21st century, while the view remained virtually unchanged. If you want to live in an authentic place in an original way in the heart of Amsterdam, you should definitely come and have a look. This houseboat has many surprises in store.
Many original elements can still be found on deck, but the large terrace immediately catches the eye.
Via the staircase you enter the living room. Thanks to the many high-placed windows all around, you can also enjoy light and privacy at the same time. The wooden floor and multi-burner contribute to the calm atmosphere on board. The open kitchen is modern, practical and equipped with built-in appliances, such as a large gas stove, oven and vintage fridge / freezer combination.
Under the aft deck, the bedroom has the appearance of a box bed. Here, many fixed cabinets are finished in an original way. The second bedroom is just below the front deck and is at least as special. This space is large enough to also hold an office and / or do homework.
The bathroom has a contemporary design, with warm colors of marble, bath and separate walk-in shower, washbasin and free-hanging toilet.
Parking permits apply in this part of Amsterdam and you will always find a place nearby. You can also opt for public transport or the sharing economy, of course. For lovers of a dinghy, bicycle or leg car, the city is literally at your feet.
