Stone outdoor steps take you into the spacious, monumental entrance hall on the ground floor. Stairs leading to the front door of the apartment, which is on the second floor, are situated between the front and the rear of the house.
The open-plan living room with its fabulous exposed wooden beam ceiling is on the third floor. Three large windows at the front provide a great view of Oudezijds Achterburgwal. The modern, open-plan kitchen is in the middle, and has plenty of room for a large dining table. This is also where you can access the cosy, comfortable balcony.
The hall has a cupboard, and leads to a separate toilet and a bathroom with a double basin and walk-in shower. The master bedroom with fitted wardrobes is at the rear of the apartment.
Stairs in the living room lead up to the mezzanine. The front of the mezzanine currently serves as a second bedroom, but this space would also make an excellent office/study. The landing provides a number of practical fitted cupboards. The semi-open nature of the mezzanine allows you to peep down into the rooms downstairs, and collar beams at a height of 1.7 metres slightly impede passage on this floor.
This is the quiet part of the Zuidelijke Burgwallen. Typical Amsterdam canals, historical buildings and a friendly vibe all combine to make this a great place to live.
Oudezijds Achterburgwal is situated in the historic heart of Amsterdam, which means that you benefit from all the amenities you would expect to find in the middle of a city. It is a lively neighbourhood with numerous bars, coffee spots and restaurants. Various supermarkets are close by for daily groceries, and there is a weekly market on Nieuwmarkt. If theatre is your thing, De Kleine Komedie and Carré are within walking distance. De Dam with the Bijenkorf flagship store and several popular shopping streets, including Kalverstraat and Nieuwendijk, are all in the immediate vicinity.
The property is very convenient for Amsterdam Centraal Station and Rokin metro station on the Noord/Zuid line. Amsterdam Centraal Station is a ten-minute walk, and the nearest metro station (Nieuwmarkt) is just four minutes away. You can get straight onto the A10 Ring Road via the IJ tunnel.
