Charming apartment opposite Vondelpark

Beautiful living opposite the Vondelpark in Amsterdam South (Schinkelbuurt) in this 71m²/764 sq. feet apartment.

The house is located at the beautiful and famous Vondelpark (Amsterdam's 'Central Park') on the Amstelveenseweg in a building built around 1910. The apartment is located on the 4th floor and can only be reached by stairs. The house is well-maintained and has beautiful authentic details. The room and suite have been restored, creating a bright living room with open kitchen. The kitchen is simple but neat. Furthermore, at the back are the bedroom and the bathroom (with shower). From the living room, you have access to an intimate but very sunny 4 m² balcony, from which you can enjoy birdwatching in the large tree and boat-watching on the canal below. In the summer you can enjoy the sun until late.

Ground floor; Entrance, four flights of stairs.
4th floor; Landing, toilet, washing machine and dryer, kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom and balcony.

The house is situated in an extremely beautiful part of the Zuid borough. The house looks out over the Vondelpark in the front and the Schinkelkade (large canal) in the back. Around the corner is the Amstelveenseweg with all its shops for daily shopping and excellent restaurants such as Ron's Gastrobar, Patisserie Linnick and Juicebar Roots. The Leidseplein, the Concertgebouw, Museums and Amsterdamse Bos (Amsterdam Forest) are all within a short bike ride.

Also nearby you will find the indoor swimming pool in the David Lloyd sports club and various sports facilities, including the Hollandse Manege (famous riding stables). The house has a central location in the city, and with the Vondelpark as your backyard, you can really enjoy yourself here!

The accessibility is excellent: bus 15, tram 1, 11 and 17 stop around the corner within walking distance and ensure good accessibility of the city. Station Zuid (South), Lelylaan, Sloterdijk and Amsterdam Central Station are within 5-15 minute cycling distance. The apartment also offers excellent connectivity by car from the Ringweg A-10, which is very close. Ample parking on the public road through residents permit. There is no waiting time for the parking permit.

About Me
I’m Nadine and I live in Amsterdam. I am currently pursuing a Joint-PhD in Ecological Engineering at University College Dublin and Trinity College Dublin. In September 2019, I will relocate to Cambridge (MA, USA) for six months at MIT (until March 15/April 1, 2020) and would love to swap homes during that time. If you're interested in living in a beautiful, centrally-located apartment in Amsterdam from Sept 2019 to March/April 2020 -- please get in touch! You can also see my apartment by clicking on the link below. Hope to talk soon! Nadine
