This wonderful maisonette on the 3rd and 4th floor of a building dating back to 1905 is situated at the corner of the popular J.P. Heijestraat and Jacob van Lennepstraat. The apartment needs some updating inside and, subject to planning permission from the municipality and the Home Owners’ Association (VvE), there is the option to create a roof terrace.

The VvE is registered under the name “Vereniging van Eigenaars Jacob van Lennepstraat 284, 286, 288 and Jan Pieter Heijestraat 86, 88, 90, 92 en 94 te Amsterdam”. The administration is professionally managed. The financially healthy and active VvE has a multiyear maintenance plan and the monthly contribution is € 93.

The entrance to the apartment on the 3rd floor is reached via the communal stairways. The private entrance brings you into the hallway with the meter cupboard and the bathroom featuring a shower, a washbasin and a toilet.

The living room includes a gas burner and a modest kitchen with a 5-litre Inventum electric boiler (rental) and the connections for the washing machine. 3 large tilt/turn windows at the front of the building make the room wonderfully light and airy.

An open staircase leads to the upper floor with the bedroom. This large room also has 3 large windows (double glazing) at the front and a domed skylight. Wardrobe space has been created behind a curtain.

The Jacob van Lennepstraat is a magnificent, central location in one of the most popular and vibrant parts of Amsterdam Oud-West. The Jan Pieter Heijestraat, the Overtoom, the Ten Katemarkt, the Foodhallen, and the Vondelpark are all around the corner or within easy walking distance. Oud-West borders the city centre and is a unique part of Amsterdam: a highly popular neighbourhood with fashionable shops, trendy nightlife venues, cosy pubs and restaurants such as Panache, the Kanarie Club, restaurant Edel, and Café Lennep. The bustling character of this neighbourhood makes it a wonderful place to live. For relaxation, you can go to the always lively Vondelpark, for instance, and you can get your daily groceries in the various nearby supermarkets and caterers. The location is easily accessible by public transport. There are several bus and tram stops at the Kinkerstraat and the Overtoom, with trams and buses going to the city centre and Amsterdam Central Station. The A10 Ring is also just minutes by car.

There is paid on-street parking (09:00 - 24:00 on weekdays and Saturdays, and 12:00 - 24:00 on Sundays), and residents can apply for a parking permit.

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.
