Occupying a quiet oasis in the heart of the bustling city of Amsterdam is this three-bedroom house, an authentic slice of Dutch history dating back to 1729. Situated on private land, it holds itself up as a national monument, an abode beaming with character and charm. The house spans three floors and could easily house three or four bedrooms depending on the owners' preferences.
You'll have the pleasure of indulging in the warm Amsterdam sunshine from the tranquility of your backyard, an oasis that comes alive from March all through September. This home has been nurtured and cared for with much love for over 50 years. Now, it patiently awaits its next owners who can infuse their own essence into it, maintaining its charm while updating it to their individual taste.
Upon entry, there are two access points – the door in the basement and the street-facing front door on the first floor. The kitchen finds its place in the basement and grants access to the bounteous garden. A handy storage room with meter cupboard is also situated at the front of the basement.
Upstairs, you unlock the rest of the home via the staircase. There's a guest toilet nestled between the two floors. The first floor ushers you into the living room. A hallway also leads to the front door. One distinctive feature is a custom built-in bookcase that's as practical as it is aesthetic, providing ample storage space.
The first floor houses two spacious bedrooms and a well-equipped bathroom with a walk-in shower, sink, and toilet. There is a room on the second floor which can be remodelled into an additional one or two bedrooms. From the second floor, you can enjoy a picturesque view of the Keurtuinen, the protected courtyard gardens that add to the charm of Amsterdam living.
The location is advantageous, located right in the heart of the city, within footsteps of the majestic Rijksmuseum and Museum Quarter. You can also take a leisurely stroll around the corner to the Spiegelgracht, which houses a multitude of galleries, antique shops, trendy eateries, and cafes. If you are a music or park enthusiast, you are within a proximity to the Leidseplein, Melkweg, Paradiso, and Vondelpark.
Despite being nested in Amsterdam city center, you can expect mild, marine climate with cool summers and moderate winters. The city experiences rainfall throughout the year with wetter months from August to December.
