Very attractive 3-layer lower house of 225 m² 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.

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.
