Riverfront real estate agents Els Verpoorten (Eefje Voogd Makelaardij) and Stefano Djoemena (Lunshof Makelaardij) explain enthusiastically what makes living at Riverfront so unique. The reasons are abundant but these are our top three.
'Residential properties with magnificent views of the Amstel river have become a rare commodity in Amsterdam. Riverfront is located on the north-west side of the Amstelkwartier district near the Stadshaven, at the characteristic bend of the Amstel river where panoramic views evoke a tremendous sensation of space. Nowhere is the Amstel river so prominent as it is here. This is truly one of the most beautiful places in the Amstelkwartier. The residential buildings have been positioned so that most apartments overlook the river,' Stefano explains.
'The waterfront location is what makes Riverfront Residences so attractive,’ Els adds. 'You can just hop in a boat and explore the Amstel. An ideal way to spend a relaxing afternoon with friends or family. George Marina and restaurant L’ Osteria are located at and near the Stadshaven. Both places boast a lovely terrace where you can moor your boat, have a drink and enjoy the boats sailing by. The water of the Amstel river is so clean nowadays, you can even take a cooling dip on a hot summer's day.'
‘Riverfront Residences’ exclusive penthouses, spacious duplexes and luxurious apartments span a total of five levels and are situated in four linked palazzi. Each of the four palazzi has its own entrance, so their intimate scale offers significant privacy. What's more, Riverfront is one of the most sustainable residential buildings in the Netherlands. That, together with the luxurious and elegant finishes, space, light and gorgeous views make Riverfront a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Amsterdam residents and expats,' Stefano says.
'The quality of finish and choice of materials becomes evident the minute you step inside. The façades are clad with beautiful, robust natural stone from Italy. Each building has its own distinctive personality through the use of different natural stone finishes. But together they form an elegant, inviting and harmonious whole. The residences feature exquisite finishes, a high-quality kitchen by renowned German kitchen brand LEICHT which residents can design based around a layout that works for them, and a carefully selected bathroom. Here too, residents will have the opportunity to choose the finish they prefer.'
The unprecedented architectural grandeur of Italian palazzi – beautiful palaces built for wealthy Italian families – was the inspiration for Riverfront. Riverfront's palazzi have been designed to echo this robust grandeur and luxury while offering the ultimate in contemporary comfort with floor plans that make maximum use of all available space. Much attention has also gone into the outdoor areas. All residences have at least a spacious balcony, roof terrace and/or garden.
Another important source of inspiration for Riverfront's architecture was the water tower, which proudly stands as a reminder of an industrial past. The balcony fencing, for example, is designed to mimic the water tower's classic shapes.
Els and Stefano conclude: 'With four palazzi with differently designed residences suffused with luxury and grandeur, Riverfront offers the ultimate in contemporary comfort. This is first-class living at its finest.'
