IJburg | €995,000 ($1.05 million)

A three-bedroom houseboat in a floating gated community on Amsterdam’s waterfront

This three-bedroom houseboat is moored in a gated community in IJburg, an archipelago of several artificial islands with contemporary mixed-use developments on the Amsterdam waterfront. An enclosed-entrance house with a bicycle shed and mailboxes serves as a gateway to the houseboat community, where dinghies can be moored and launched onto the waterways to explore the city center and areas beyond.

IJburg has a sandy beach, about 12 minutes away by bike, which is a destination for water sports, including windsurfing. The area offers plenty of restaurants, cafes, shops, hotels and markets. There is a shopping center a few minutes away by foot, along with many schools and parking garages.

The trip to Amsterdam-Centrum can take about half an hour using various forms of public transportation, such as nearby Tram 26. By car or taxi, the trip takes less than 20 minutes.

Size: 2,303 square feet

Price per square foot: €432 ($463)

Indoors: This houseboat, built in 1962 and formerly used to transport cement, has a primary residence and an apartment with a separate entrance. It has a biomass boiler, underfloor heating and solar panels. Electricity, water, sewer and fiber-optic internet are available.

A walkway leads to the entrance of the cabin, which still has the captain’s chair, helm and instrument panel. Stairs descend to the dining room with wood floors and original windows. More stairs descend to the living room, full of natural light from portholes and skylights in the barrel ceiling, with a full open kitchen with breakfast bar. A Bullerjan wood stove provides warmth.

Off the kitchen, a door opens to a hallway that leads to two bedrooms, a half bathroom and laundry equipment. There is a beamed ceiling and porthole windows. The main bedroom has an en suite bath with a large tub and shower.
