    Sleek design & eccentric interior
    Lots of light & space

Floating on the water, while the ducklings swim along with their offspring, you will completely relax in the Black Swan. Located on a serene dike in a branch of the Zaan, you have an unobstructed view of nature from every window. 

The robust exterior, inspired by the black barns of the North Holland polders, is continued inside in the sleek kitchen and the industrial accents. You will be surprised by the solid construction and the space inside, since the boat is 20 meters long, 6 meters wide and has two floors. The first floor is 60 cm below the water level - sitting on the huge lounge sofa you can study the aquatic life up close. Upstairs you will find a spacious living kitchen with adjoining terrace, where you can sit sheltered from the wind. There are a total of three bedrooms, one with two bedsteads. Everywhere you will find creative tributes to the water; from the tiles with carps, the golden fish trap lamps above the dining table, the wallpaper with nautical charts. The house is completely energy neutral, equipped with solar panels and a heat pump installation.

Here you live in the middle of the seasons; in the summer you can cruise beautifully on the inland streams. In autumn it's a pleasure to walk or cycle in the Wormer and Jisperveld. In winter you can be the first to skate on the small, shallow waterways here. When spring arrives you can see the lambs frolicking on the meadows. The picturesque town of Oostknollendam is 20 minutes drive from Amsterdam, attractions such as Volendam, Zaamdam and the North Sea coast are easily accessible.

Land comfortably in this water villa and enjoy the rich wetlands of the polder!

The charming Oostknollendam looks exactly like an old Dutch postcard, with only a few inhabitants. There are a handful of restaurants nearby, but a car is recommended. The neighboring Wormerveer has more facilities and a train station. The nearest supermarket is 10 minutes away by car.
