About the neighbourhood:
The house (1996) is located on a quiet road in a neighborhood with only local traffic. The house is located on Het Eiland, an island in the Voorzaan river that is connected to the mainland by a bridge and a bicycle bridge. This is a sought after, child friendly environment, from where the centre with its many shops, restaurants, the cinema, the Zaantheater and the train station can be reached easily. You can walk there in 10 minutes. Childcare and primary school are within walking distance, while secondary education is easily accessible by bike. The many sports facilities of Zaandam are also easily accessible by bike. For water sports enthusiasts, this location offers opportunities! The harbour is within walking distance.
By car, you are within 10 minutes on the A8 motorway, which at that point almost connects to the A10 ring road around Amsterdam. The train will also take you quickly to Amsterdam Central Station (12 minutes). It will take you 18 minutes to get to Schiphol Airport.
