Our home

Very picturesque old Amsterdam canal house, on a top class location with an absolutely splendid view. We have a modest apartment on the 2nd floor, 80 m2, with a bright spacious living room & study on the lively canal side and the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom in the quiet back part of the house. Modern digital TV set; wifi. Staircase is high, not suitable for very old people and little kids. The house is heated with gas stoves. Bathroom with a shower. Small kitchen with combined oven/microwave. Washing machine. Two floors up from this one is the roof terrace, very quiet and private, offering wide views across the city.
Front part and back part of the apartment are separated by the common stairwell, leading all the way up to the roof terrace, which we share with the neighbours but is in fact only used by ourselves.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our old Amsterdam canal house is on a unique spot with a splendid view on a lively canal, bridge and side streets. The Singel canal is the innermost of the three classical central belt canals. It is a very picturesque and at the same time a very mundane neighbourhood, with 17th century gables, pleasure boats, bikes, swans, ducks and gulls. The narrow side streets are filled with small shops that range from exclusive silversmiths' shops alongside popular fashion stores to artisan bakeries an delis. The best restaurants in town are at a stone's throw. Theatres and museums abound, and major tourist sites are at walking distance. Very close by are streetcar stops to take you to Central Station in 5 or 10 minutes.
It is hard to find a better spot to enjoy Amsterdam life and be comfortably at home at the same time. Just sit on the front balcony and take in the atmosphere!
