Unique and high-end renovated, fully furnished canal apartment at a beautiful location. Thanks to its corner position, this wonderful property has dual-aspect windows overlooking the canal and, because the Prinsengracht bends here, you have lovely wide-open views from all the living room windows.

The apartment was completely reconstructed under the supervision of interior architect, Willem Benoit, in collaboration with Diewert van der Horst of Houtwerk B.V. and Bob de Kort working with exceptionally high quality, beautiful materials and an eye for detail and style. This is a house for people who love architecture which has an extremely good finish.

The apartment is in a listed building with steps to the pavement and a stylish staircase leading up to the property on the second and the top floors. The 68m² dwelling is very charming: a lovely and luxurious living kitchen, a cosy sitting corner on the canal side with a gas-fire, bedroom upstairs with a luxurious, en-suite bathroom and a handy storage area in the basement.

The apartment is located on a highly desirable stretch of the Prinsengracht, an attractive small neighbourhood on the border of the Jordaan district, between the Nine Streets, Elandsgracht and Leidsegracht.
Many lovely shops, cafés and restaurants are nearby. But gyms, theatres and museums are all within walking distance too. The Vondelpark is just a 10-minutes’ walk away and you can take public transportation from the end of the street.

From the pavement steps in Raamstraat, you enter a very well-maintained shared staircase with well-lit, easy-to-climb stairs. Although the apartment is situated on the upper two floors, you only need to climb two flights of stairs to reach the floor with the living room and kitchen.
Between the hallway and the living room is a solid steel front provided with glass, so it can be properly closed, but there is still a good connection with the kitchen and living room. The sleekly designed toilet and the central heating room containing a washing machine connection are in the hallway.

The living room has six windows on the front and side, a beautifully beamed ceiling, a gas-fire adjacent to the sitting area and a customised, modern kitchen with Miele built-in appliances, a Bora Cooker and a Hi-Macs counter top. Behind the wall-to-wall cabinets in the kitchen is a sink and a coffee corner. All cabinets are fitted with LED lighting.
Chic, designer, seamless flooring is laid throughout the property which is provided with under-floor heating and dimmable lighting.

The upper floor is accessed via easy-to-climb stairs, lit with daylight. Here you’ll find a beautiful and spacious bedroom, with a surface area of 23m² and several customised, build-in wardrobes fitted with lights. There is also a lovely free-standing bathtub in the bedroom. Adjacent is the fantastic, highly-regarded and well-maintained bathroom with walk-in shower, beautiful wash basin and second toilet.

The Jordaan is one of the most well-known neighbourhoods in Amsterdam. It is an amazing area to live, go out and have some fun.

These attractive features of the Jordaan can mostly be found on the North side of this neighbourhood, the southern part is in comparison to the North more described as residential area.

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.

Enlist an MVA/NVM estate agent when renting in the Netherlands

An estate agent’s area of expertise is not limited to buying and selling properties. When looking for a property to rent, it is also wise to enlist an agent. He or she can advise you about which kind of property is best suited for you, and which area to go for.

Buying an apartment in Amsterdam is different from buying a house or a detached villa. In case of an apartment, you do not only have neighbours to your left and right, but often also above or underneath you. That means the ground on which the property is located belongs to multiple people. This can lead to complications when you’re trying to figure out the extra costs before buying the apartment.
