Our typical Amsterdam house dates from anno 1890. The house is uniquely situated, next to the Vondelpark, in walking distance of the canals and the oldest part of Amsterdam. We live in a great neighbourhood with lots of shops, cafes and restaurants.
The house has two quiet, bright and spacey floors of totally 120 m2. with a large open kitchen/dining room area, 3 bedrooms and next to this the house has a basement of 50m2 where you can watch television or play on the playstation. The house has a large, sunny garden facing south-west. in the morning it's lovely to have your breakfast or have dinner in the evening!
the front of the house looks out on green gardens and a small neighborhood park.
The open kitchen/dining room is ideal for passionate cooks and for hosting guests. we have an espresso machine and a well equipped kitchen with microwave and oven.
On the 2nd floor are the bedrooms overlooking the small neighborhood park. There is one master bedroom, one big junior bedroom, both 17 m2 and one small bedroom with a one person bed.
The house has all the original details, marble chimneys and decorated ceilings. It has 1 bathroom and 2 toilets.
It's also possible to stay with 5 persons in our house, but then one of the children needs to share a room: we do have an extra couch bed for a 5th person.
Our house is located 200 m from the Vondelpark and well-connected to the city centre. 10 min walk to Leidseplein and the canals and 5 min by car from the A10 exit 106 and 13 min by car to the international airport Shiphol.
We love our neighbourhood as offers nice restaurants, pubs, supermarkets, bakeries, speciality stores a dry cleaner and many other neighbourhood shops. The Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum are only a 10 min walk from our house away. People living here are mainly young families ranging from artists, actors, writers to bank directors and consultants of all cultures and nationalities. Our house is also 300m away from the major Kinkerstraat shopping street and the fresh produce “Ten Kate”-market, which has a daily wide range of local fruit, veggies, fish and household items.
There are several supermarkets (discount, organic and 'normal') in our area, all within a three minutes walk. You can take a 10 min bike ride (or just one of the trams close to our home) to the Albert Cuip Market or the Dam Square and walk to the Anne Frank House and the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk Museum.
Within 5 minutes walk you can rent a bike!
We have two cats. They are lovely and easy to take care of! They can come in and out the house by themselves and there is no need to change the cat's box. Just food, twice a day...
