This beautiful church from 1913 in Berlagian style with an extremely refined detailing, was split into 4 apartment rights in 1996. The New Apostolic Church with beautiful stained glass windows, towers and monumental staircase was designed by the architect H.F. Symons junior.
The characteristic apartment is located at the rear, has 2 bedrooms, many original details and a small garden. The apartment is located in one of the most beautiful tree-lined streets of Amsterdam, within walking distance of, among others, the Artis Zoo.

The monumental staircase gives access to the joint stately hall with beautiful stained glass windows, located on the ground floor. Entrance to the house, spacious hall with wardrobe, meter cupboard and separate toilet with fountain. The spacious living room has unprecedented high ceilings and is equipped with an attractive apse with 3 narrow matt windows. The living room is located at the rear and looks out through the large windows over the green of the courtyard. Even with the windows open, it is an oasis of peace in this house. There is also a spacious loft which now functions as a workspace. At the back of the office there is another storage space.

The semi-open kitchen is equipped with a 4-burner stove with luxurious extractor hood, dishwasher, combi-oven and a double sink. Through the kitchen you have access to the spacious pantry. The pantry has many shelves for storage space and there is a large fridge-freezer. You can also reach the pantry from the hall. So you can immediately go to the pantry with the groceries.

Via a beautiful staircase from the hall you reach the basement with a very good height. The spacious hall in the basement gives access to all rooms. The two large bedrooms with beautiful high ceilings are located at the rear. The master bedroom has a very spacious walk-in closet. Through the second bedroom you reach the garden with lots of greenery. The bathroom is spacious and equipped with a bath, separate shower, a double sink and a second toilet. Under the stairs is a large storage room where the washing machine and dryer are located. Here too extra storage space has been created by means of shelves.

The Plantage neighborhood is a very popular and pleasant neighborhood with many restaurants, cafes and shops. You can choose from many occasions when it comes to delicious dining, shopping or a cultural visit. Artis around the corner, Hortus Botanicus and the Wertheimpark are within walking distance. The canals, Stopera, Carré and the Tropenmuseum are very close by. The apartment is easily accessible by car with a good connection to the A-10 ring road via the IJ tunnel and the Piet Hein tunnel.

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.
