This extremely spacious, sun-drenched double upstairs apartment of 147 m2 is located in one of the most peaceful and stunningly beautiful streets of the green Plantagebuurt in Amsterdam centre. This incredible home with ceiling heights of over three metres has new window frames and double glazing, herringbone parquet flooring and many original features, including heritage sliding door room dividers, ceilings with beautiful ornaments and a well-functioning open fire.

The home is located in a stunning building dating from 1880 in the much-loved Plantagebuurt in one of the nicest streets in Amsterdam: Henri Polaklaan, the Plantagebuurt’s most rural lane. The street’s key features include spacious front gardens, an abundance of trees, and greenery at both ends of the street. Amsterdam’s most beautiful 19th century garden, Artis zoo, is located on one side of the street and the green Wertheimpark with tennis courts for local residents is on the other.

Various neighbourhood stores are just a stone’s throw away. For cultural entertainment you’re spoilt for choice in this area; Joods Historisch Museum, the Synagoge, Rembrandthuis, Artis and Micropia, Muziekgebouw aan het IJ, Tropenmuseum, the Hermitage, Koninklijk Theater Carré, Hortus Botanicus, Stopera, Waterlooplein, Brouwerij het IJ as well as the Scheepvaartmuseum. The neighbourhood also has an abundance of welcoming cafe terraces and well-known restaurants, including De Plantage, Entrepot, de Kas, Elkaar and La Rive.

Accessibility by car and public transport is excellent. Take the IJ tunnel or Piet Heijntunnel and you’ll reach the A10 ring road in just five minutes and you can be at Central Station in 10 minutes by tram and just a few minutes by metro.

Own entrance on the 2nd floor with stairs to the 3rd floor. Spacious hall offering access to all rooms as well as the stairs to the 4th floor. Separate toilet and two spacious built-in cupboards one of which houses a modern meter box.

The living room is located at the sunny front of the building and is connected with the rear dining room via the original sliding door room dividers. The high ceilings and room dividers, beautiful original ceiling ornaments, French balcony to the front and open fire create a wonderful and light space to linger. The window frames have been upgraded and fitted with double glazing. The home also has a beautiful, classic herringbone parquet floor with Wengé trim. The kitchen is located to the rear and is equipped with a 4-ring induction hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, combined oven and microwave, and illuminated glass cabinets.

MVA neighbourhood information: Weesperbuurt/Plantage

this area is known as the quiet part of Amsterdam Centrum. Amsterdam East is an environmentally friendly area with canals and important cultural buildings. These characteristics make this part of Amsterdam ideal as a residential area. Unlike downtown this area consists of many young couples who are starting with their careers. East and the eastern islands and the old harbor-area is still relatively vacant, but that will change in the upcoming years with the Weesper- and Plantagebuurt still in development.

Amsterdam is the largest Dutch city, the capital of the Netherlands, and the nation's financial, business, cultural and commercial capital as well. Since its founding in the 12th century, Amsterdam has evolved from a small fishing village into one of the most important ports in the world during the Dutch Golden Age. Museums like the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh and the Stedelijk also give Amsterdam serious cultural credibility. Amsterdam's compact size, cycling lifestyle, diverse population (more than 170 nationalities), English-speaking natives, abundance of green space, reliable public transportation system and central location within Europe mean it's not only a great place to visit, but also a great place to live.
