This quintessential canal house lies on one of the city’s prettiest canals, right in the heart of vibrant Amsterdam. The property dates back to the 18th century and still includes many of its original details, including a splendid roof construction and beamed ceilings. The dual aspect living area is especially stunning. The large kitchen-diner with its broad skylight is wonderfully light and has French doors leading to the adjacent roof terrace.

All four floors have their unique charm. The ground floor offers a great space to work from home and has a private entrance. It can also be easily used as separate living quarters.

The property has two separate entrances at street level: one for the upper floors (with internal access to the ground floor area) and a front door to the ground floor space.

The closed-off vestibule leads on to the hallway with a cloak area and toilet. The open wooden staircase leads to the first floor. This floor has an open, dual-aspect living area with a raised and cosy sitting room at the front, with a charming fireplace and large windows offering wonderful views of the canal. The back of the house is where you find the large kitchen-diner, which is flooded with natural light thanks to the broad skylight.

The kitchen units have a width of nearly 6 metres and consist of white cupboards and drawers and a dark natural stone worktop. The kitchen also includes several built-in appliances and two sets of French doors leading to the adjacent roof terrace. The terrace (18 m2) has been finished with hardwood floorboards. This floor has light-coloured tiled flooring with underfloor heating.

Another wooden staircase leads up to the second floor. The spacious landing, with a walk-in closet, gives access to the two bedrooms on this floor and the 1st bathroom. The good-sized bedrooms are on both sides of the bathroom. The bedroom at the back includes built-in wardrobes along the wall and a separate built-in closet. The bedroom at the front of the house is currently used as a study. The bathroom has been finished with sand-coloured floor tiles and white walls and features a bath, a separate shower, a toilet, and a washbasin.

The third and top floor also offers two bedrooms, both with an attic/mezzanine floor (big enough to fit a double mattress). The top floor also includes a generously sized laundry room and a large built-in closet. The landing gives access to the 2nd bathroom featuring a shower cabin, a washbasin, and a design radiator. The bathroom has a window and gives access to an attic space above the bathroom with one of the central heating units. This floor still shows the original roof structure and has several Velux skylights.

The ground floor is no less than 23 metres long and, as it has a private entrance, it is a perfect space for working from home. This floor is currently divided into a dining area at the front, a sitting area with a small kitchen unit in the centre, and a sleeping area with a bathroom/laundry room at the back. One of the eye-catchers is the atrium with two sets of double doors from the centre part. The double doors behind the kitchen unit lead to the back.

A few steps go down to the lower situated laundry room/bathroom with a shower cabin, a compact washbasin unit, and white goods connections, as well as a separate toilet.

The bedroom is a few steps up and has a very romantic roof structure. Apart from the bedroom, this floor has been finished with terra-coloured floor tiles. The ground floor also has its own central heating unit.

This canal house is in a truly splendid location, near the Elandsgracht and right in the heart of Amsterdam. This location in the famous Jordaan neighbourhood is wonderfully quiet yet just around the corner from the Nine Street shopping area. The area is known for its many unique galleries, specialty boutiques, and independent shops. Many other well-known shopping streets, as well as supermarkets for your daily groceries, are all within easy walking or cycling distance, and there are plenty of wonderful cafés and restaurants of all cuisines. And last but not least, there are countless cultural highlights and theatres within easy reach. Public transport connections are within walking distance and the arterial road to the A10 Ring is just a few minutes by car.

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.
