About the neighbourhood:
This terraced house with unobstructed views of the river Zaan is located on a quiet road on Het Eiland, within walking distance of the bustling centre of Zaandam. At the rear of the house is a wide green area, a wonderful and safe place for children to play. Het Eiland is an island in the Zaan, which is connected to the mainland by a bicycle/walkway bridge and a bridge for car traffic. It is a lovely, quiet place to live, with only destination traffic, and yet you have all the city amenities within walking distance. In the citycentre you will find not only a large number of shops, cafés and restaurants, but also the Zaantheater, a mega cinema and a pop stage. You also live close to the marina, ideal if you want to moor your own boat. Schools, sports facilities and medical facilities are all within walking or cycling distance. The bus stop is within walking distance, and within 10 minutes you can cycle to the railway station, which has fast train connections with Amsterdam Central Station and Schiphol Airport, among others. By car it only takes a few minutes to get to the A8 motorway, which connects to the A7 and the A10 ring road around Amsterdam.
Layout of the house:
You can reach the front door via the carport (with bicycle storage) and the partly tiled, partly green front garden. Entrance with meter closet and cloakroom, neatly tiled toilet with hand basin, staircase to the first floor and access to the living room with open kitchen. The bright living room is garden facing and offers the possibility for a spacious sitting area and workspace. Great in this time of working from home! Near the kitchen there is room for a dining table. The U-shaped kitchen (Rotpunkt) has light grey fronts and all appliances are present, including a gas cooker, oven, separate fridge and freezer. The kitchen has a window overlooking the front garden and the river. The living room has a glass sliding door at the rear with access to the backyard. There are light oak floorboards that run through to the entrance, and the walls and ceilings are neatly finished.
Via the stairs you reach the landing of the first floor. Here you will find three neatly finished bedrooms and the bathroom. Two bedrooms are at the back of the house. One of the bedrooms has a fixed closet. The third bedroom is at the front, next to the bathroom. On the floor of the bedrooms is vinyl. In the light tiled bathroom you will find a bath, a shower cabin, a standing toilet and a washbasin with mirror.
Via the upholstered stairs you reach the landing of the second floor. There are two spacious bedrooms, of which the one at the front has a dormer window. On the landing you will find the connection for washer and dryer and the central heating installation.
The house has a partly green, partly tiled front garden. The backyard is bordered by high hedges and also has a lot of greenery. There is a tiled terrace, where you can create a lounge area or set up a dining table for fine outdoor dining in the summer. The garden is in open connection with the safe, large playground behind the house. A wonderful place for the children!
