Are you a lover of 1930s houses? Then be quick, because this cozy corner house will certainly please you. The house still has authentic elements such as a bay window, the original front door, stained glass window and paneled doors. The house has been neatly renovated and maintained, although the kitchen and bathroom are functional, but may need some updating. The house has a bright living room with mantlepiece and wood stove, three bedrooms, a roof terrace and a front and backyard with a stone shed with two separate rooms.
About the neighbourhood:
This house (1938) is located on a cosy, quiet road with trees in the quiet, child-friendly Burgemeestersbuurt neighbourhood. The house is only a 10 minutes walk from the bustling centre of Zaandam with its many shops, cafes and restaurants, terraces, the mega cinema and the Zaantheater. Also the bank of the river Zaan is nearby. The supermarket is just a few minutes walk and childcare and several primary schools are also around the proverbial corner. Secondary education is easily reached by bike. Various sports facilities are within cycling distance and the beautiful Darwin Park, which includes a city farm, is also nearby. You can also choose to enjoy cycling through the vast meadow area with its ribbon villages east of Zaandam!
The bus stop is within walking distance and the railway station of Zaandam is only 10 minutes by bike. By train you are then within 12 minutes in the heart of Amsterdam! By car, it will only take you 5 minutes to reach the A7 and A8 motorways, which bring you quickly to the A10 ring road around Amsterdam, among others. Schiphol Airport is half an hour away.
Layout of the house:
Through the partly green, partly tiled front garden you reach the covered front door. Entrance with wardrobe, storage closet, staircase to first floor and access to living room and kitchen. The bright living room with mantlepiece and wood stove has a bay window at the front and at the rear doors to the garden. The walls are neatly finished, the ceiling beams are visible and there are wooden floorboards. The kitchen is accessible through a harmonic door in the hallway. The straight kitchen has white fronts and the following equipment is available: a gas cooker with oven and extractor hood and a fridge. The garden is also accessible through the kitchen.
Through the stairs you reach the landing of the first floor. Here you will find two nicely finished bedrooms and the bathroom. A bedroom with bay window and fixed closet is located at the front of the house and a smaller bedroom at the rear, next to the brightly tiled bathroom. In the bathroom you will find a standing toilet, a shower cabin and a vanity unit with sink and mirror. The bathroom provides access to the roof terrace via a door.
Through a staircase you reach the second floor. This has a dormer window at the rear. Here you will find the third, spacious bedroom, a closet with the central heating system and lots of extra storage space. The bedroom has a skylight and the floor is laminated.
The house has a front and back garden. Both gardens are partly tiled and partly green. The sheltered backyard facing the sunny Southwest offers much privacy because of the corner location and there is room enough for a lounge area or a dining table for cozy outdoor dining in the summer months. In the back of the garden is a stone shed with electricity and heating. Here you will find two separate rooms. In one room is the connection for washer and dryer and the other was once used as an office. Now it is also a nice place for working at home. The garden has a back entrance.
You can park around the house for free.
