IJzer 2 is a amazing expat home in Antwerp north. This is a great apartment for expats working at the port of Antwerp, which you’ll find conveniently situated within leisurely walking distance. This Brilliantly bright, thoroughly modern duplex apartment is situated in a new development, with all the ease of living you would expect from modern, aesthetically clean design.

There is an airy elegance to the entire space, due to the fact that the immaculately white walls, the pleasing parquet floor, and the neutrally toned fixtures and furnishings are all bathed in the luxury of natural light shining through the many windows, both upstairs and down, and of course, the wonderful bay windows which open out onto a fantastic little terrace. This is great place to enjoy dining al fresco, with an outside dining table and four chairs ready for you to sit back, relax and uncork that first bottle of wine in your new home in Antwerp.

In the freedom of the open plan living-space you’ll find a comfortable sofa to curl up on and watch your favourite films or that must-see series on the TV.  And you’ll entertain guests for dinner at your contemporary dining table, which comfortably seats six. Talking of dinner, you’ll have whipped up a marvellous meal in your open plan, fully-equipped kitchen.

Here you’ll find the convenience of an eye-level oven, easy to clean vitro ceramic hobs, a fridge-freezer, a dishwasher, and a washing machine with its’ own little nook under the stairs. There is also a modern, stainless steel kitchen sink and even a quick breakfast bar with a couple of stylish stools.

Now, if we take the wonderful wooden stairs to the upper level of your expat home in Antwerp, we’ll find an opportune, uncluttered office space, complete with desk, table, chair, and shelves. This is also the floor where you’ll get your much needed rest in one of two good-size bedrooms, each of them containing two beds and their own en suite bathrooms. The bathrooms are decorated in white marble, with ultra-modern finishes for a pristine, clean feel. And, as an added bonus, the bedrooms even have their own balconies to wake up and enjoy the splendid view from.

Location details

The location is one of the outstanding features of your home in Antwerp. The area of Ijzerlaan is right on the doorstep and couldn’t be more convenient for any expats working at the bustling, busy international port of Antwerp – you could literally walk to work.  The area is also well connected to the rest of the city and has plenty to offer in terms of leisure pursuits. Have a stroll in the Park Spoor Noord, or why not have a relaxing cocktail in the cosy, casual atmosphere of the bar Noord, without even leaving the park.

If music or sport is your thing, then all you’ll have to do is cross the Lobroekdok to get to Antwerps Sportpaleis, (click to see what’ happening there), a 23,000 capacity indoor arena for sporting or music events. There are also plenty of interesting places to eat and drink in and around your home in Antwerp.

Port of Antwerp

The port of Antwerp is an amazing place to live and do business. It’s perfect both in terms of geographical and business positioning. And expats are taking advantage of this – so many of them are finding out that starting a business in Antwerp really pays off. Antwerp is an international city and has excellent internal and external infrastructures.

The port of Antwerp is one of the largest in the world for freight forwarding traffic, in fact second in Europe. And as an expat you’ll really appreciate the international ambience and the great eating and drinking culture of the Belgians. Globexs helps you to settle into your new expat home in Antwerp, gives you all the expat information you need, and helps you meet other expats in Antwerp.
