Former warehouse ‘De Rode Leeuw’, Utrechtsedwarsstraat 147, Amsterdam

A unique opportunity to buy a beautiful listed building of approximately 245 m2 (gross 303 m2) in the best part of the Utrechtsedwarsstraat in the centre of Amsterdam. The property has an integral garage, a workshop on the ground floor and a great upstairs apartment. It would be very easy to transform the property to meet your particular needs too. The building was originally used as a warehouse and coach house and dates back to 1694. This freehold property is very well maintained.

A stunning location in the centre of Amsterdam, close to everything that the city has to offer. The property is conveniently located for a number of supermarkets on the Frederiksplein, the Weteringschans, the Vijzelstraat and the Stadhouderskade and is close to the Albert Cuypmarkt too. The welcoming Utrechtsestraat, with its many specialist shops and a branch of Albert Heijn, is within walking distance. There are plenty of options for rest and relaxation locally as well, including the museums on the Museumplein, the Royal Theatre Carré, the Dutch National Opera & Ballet, De Kleine Komedie theatre and the Tuschinski and De Munt cinemas. On and around the Leidseplein, you will also find the Stadsschouwburg, De Balie, Paradiso, the Melkweg music venue, the De La Mar theatre and the City Theater. The Vondelpark, the Amstelveld and, of course, the Amstel too, are all nearby as well. The property is very easy to reach by both public transport and car. Parking is never an issue as the property comes complete with an integral garage!

More information

MVA neighbourhood information: De Weteringschans

This area is known as the quiet part of Amsterdam Centrum. Amsterdam East is an environmentally friendly area with canals and important cultural buildings. These characteristics make this part of Amsterdam ideal as a residential area. Unlike downtown this area consists of many young couples who are starting with their careers. East and the eastern islands and the old harbor-area is still relatively vacant, but that will change in the upcoming years with the Weesper- and Plantagebuurt still in development.

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.
