Very attractive 3-layer lower house of 225 m with a nice city garden in the oldest house on the Herengracht. This beautiful national monument 't FORTUIJN dates from 1580 and was completely renovated in 1997 and restored to its former glory, including a new foundation. This cozy family house has no less than four bedrooms and two bathrooms and a very attractive kitchen with access to the city garden.

The strength of this apartment is the unique and sought-after location, located on a quiet, car-free section of the Herengracht where people are still sitting on a bench in front of their house and children are stepping past. Yet the house is in the heart of the center of Amsterdam, bordering the Jordaan and the King's streets full of nice shops and restaurants. Within walking distance is the Haarlemmerstraat with many shops, specialty shops and cozy cafes and restaurants as well as the Noordermarkt with the famous organic market on Saturday. There are several schools and playgrounds nearby, but the Westerpark is also reachable by bicycle in 10 minutes.

Your own entrance on the first floor gives access to the cozy, spacious living room at the front. Built-in window sills give a beautiful view of the canal. At the rear of this nice apartment is the large kitchen with cooking island. The kitchen is equipped with many built-in appliances including a 6-burner gas stove from Smeg, a large refrigerator with freezer, oven and wine climate cabinet from Liebherr. From the kitchen you can walk into the private city garden with a small staircase. Separate toilet.

On the first floor is the large master bedroom at the front. A separate closet room provides more than enough storage space for clothes and shoes. At the rear is the second bedroom. The spacious bathroom has a beautiful classic roll top bath, separate walk-in shower and double sinks with a Belgian freestone top. There is also a separate toilet on this floor.

In the basement floor is a spacious bedroom with built-in closet and private bathroom with walk-in shower, sink and towel radiator. Large storage room with central heating boiler. At the front is a second large room with its own entrance and lots of built-in closet space. This room is ideal for a home office, TV room or as a fourth bedroom. In the spacious utility room are the connections for washer and dryer and a separate sink.
The entire apartment has a beautiful wooden floor.

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.
