Loft on ground floor 100+ square meters, ideal for one or two

Ijburg is the name of the neighborhood in Amsterdam. Relatively new (less than 20 years old), IJburg has lots of space, water (huge lake and canals) all around, a park with a beach, another beach near the marina harbor, restaurants, cafe's, supermarkets and shops (in front of the house). It is well connected by tram (departs every 4 minutes during rush hours in front of the house), so Amsterdam Central Station can be reached easily and fast (max 15 minutes). From there one has easy access to the rest of Amsterdam (subway, tram, bus) and the rest of Netherlands (railway).
The house is a loft on the ground floor, one big open space of around 100 square meters (including the toilet and the bathroom, with bath and shower). The ceiling is 3.20 m high, almost as high are the windows. Wifi, TV, radio, computer, printer, washer, dishwasher and everything one needs to cook and eat a decent meal. The house is well isolated from outside influences and therefore very quiet, dry (not damp) and has a stable temperature. Of course there's a heather that works well, though no air conditioning. Outside there's a terrace/little garden facing south, so very sunny both in summer and winter. Also at the back of the house there's a nice canal, quiet and clean, where one can swim in summer. On the other side of the canal there is a playground for children. The loft is close to a big park with sports facilities. I do not have a car, but my two bikes can be used.
I live here myself, so the apt is available for a maximum of two, perhaps three months per year.
