In one of the most historical parts of our beautiful city centre, this characteristically lower house with its own entrance, distinctive layout and possibility of indoor parking. A hidden oasis of peace between the Waag and the Montelbaanstoren, where in this serene silence the rich history of the place can be admired through the many monumental facades. Situated on its own ground (no ground lease) on the picturesque Recht Boomssloot, which runs through to the Nieuwe Ridderstraat. This means brightness in the front and back, with the possibility to realise more (bed) rooms. You can live outside on the bench at the front or have a quiet drink and/or let the children play on the Nieuwe Ridderstraat. Either way, it invites you to make this your own private home.
With a own entrance at the canal side, you have direct access to the living room with high ceiling and marble floor. Here it is lovely to enjoy the view of the canal, while privacy is guaranteed. This room is now furnished as a living room, but was formerly used as a bedroom. The house is further divided into two floors; a spacious kitchen in the rear basement with granite worktop and various appliances and closets. Furthermore, there is a guest toilet and utility room with washer/dryer connections. Through the utility room access to the garage (entrance Nwe Ridderstraat). The garage (with remote control access) is equipped with lift system so there is also room for extra storage or second small car is present. But it is also quite conceivable that the parking is given up for realizing an extra bedroom or office. Under the garage is a large storage room so that even two floors would be conceivable ...!
Back to the living room with stairs to the top where the bedroom is located and a small bathroom with shower, double sink and second toilet.
The last renovation was in 2001 under the supervision of architect G. Prins (using original details such as panel doors, glass with rods etc.). Especially the entrance side looks therefore monumental. This also has a roller shutter.
The property is located on private land, so there is no leasehold.
Non-residents clause applicable to the sale.

The Recht Boomssloot is located in the historic centre of Amsterdam and takes its name from the ditch that the 16th century shipbuilder Cornelis Pietersz Boom dug to connect his shipyard on the Lastage with the IJ river. De Lastage (Nieuwmarktbuurt) breathes history, with the tranquillity of a residential area and the convenience of living in the centre of Amsterdam. A primary school on the same canal, the Nieuwmarkt with its cosy cafes around the corner, a wide range of restaurants and other entertainment venues just a stone's throw away. Several museums and Artis within walking distance and a full range of shops for all daily needs. The house itself is located on a newly renovated and rezoned canal. The neighbourhood is easily accessible by car, including through the IJtunnel.
