Authentic, spacious and modern at the same time: this fine family home is a pleasure to live in. Original stained glass from around 1938 can be found everywhere. A staircase full of character connects the 3 floors. Windows and en-suite doors make this house a picture. For years, a family with four growing children has lived, learned, worked and experienced beautiful moments here with ease and pleasure.
The corner house, part of a three-under-one-roof, has a lot of space (180mē plus basement, attic and garage). This cozy house offers wonderful places for socializing. All rooms have something special, from a bay window or a balcony overlooking the forest, a handy cool cellar, to a sleeping place in the robber's den in the attic. But especially the living room at the garden is beautiful, especially by the lying stained glass that ensures that it is nice and light here. Or take a seat by the fireplace in the sitting room, on those days when you long for that kind of light and warmth.
The west-facing backyard is beautifully landscaped and ends with a lovely quiet jetty on the Hoornsloot from where you overlook the Amsterdam Forest. Occasionally one of the historic trams from the Amsterdam depot passes by here!
The road at the front, almost inaudible through insulation, is the connection to the Stadshart, the Amstelveen Old Village and the A9 to the south and Amsterdam or the A10 to the north. In the forest are many sports clubs and opportunities and all other facilities you desire are a short distance away.
In the garden, and certainly on the jetty at the water's edge, you feel as if you are on vacation. With the lights on, this is the place where family and friends can enjoy a nice drink and dinner, where you just 'away'.
