Last Updated 7 days ago


This is a wonderfully sunny home on the fourth floor of a c17th former warehouse that is now a listed building. What makes this apartment special is its extremely quiet location and its wide roof-top views. To the north-east there are exceptional views of the Westertoren - see picture - and the Koninklijk Palais (Royal Palace) while the low skyline to the south-east reveals the twin towers of Rijksmuseum. From the communal lobby area and short flight of stairs, access is gained by lift/elevator directly into the apartment and by staircase to the front door. The contemporary design of the spacious interior enhances the original features of brickwork and magnificent beams and allows light to pour in from three directions. The rooms provide ample space to work and to relax in comfort. The living room is equipped with HD digital TV; a sound system including CD player with USB jack and tuner and an "all-in-one" printer too. The galley kitchen gives on to the dining area and is fitted with an electric oven, gas hob, double sink, fridge and dishwasher. Tableware is located in the fitted storage units under the work surface and in additional cupboards. The bedroom, with three big west-facing windows, has a 'super king size' bed 200cm x 210cm (79x83inches); a tall chest of drawers, additional hanging space in floor-to-ceiling cupboards outside in the corridor and an en-suite bathroom. The bathroom is equipped with a large bath, shower attachment, loo and a retro-style washbasin with shaver’s point and hair dryer. Near the lift, you will find washing and drying machines, a shower, washbasin and a further WC in the utility room. Contact us for all reviews and further info. We were delighted to take part in SH Member Spotlights 2019. RENTAL - what’s included, what’s not included Based on Euros 120.00 per night; the rent includes, standing charges (digital TV, telephone, radio and fast broadband (speeds 50mbps/15mbps)), lift and service charges. Other costs: telephone land-line calls, cleaning, water, electricity, gas consumption and tourist tax will be deducted from the returnable deposit of Euros 3,500.00. In the case of a couple wishing to rent, cleaning is arranged and charged weekly. LOCATION The apartment is at the heart of the city’s cultural centre. The Anne Frank House, the Amsterdams Historisch Museum, the Amsterdam City Archives (Stadsarchief) and the University of Amsterdam (UvA) campus are all within easy walking distance as is the Museum District which includes the the Concertgebouw, the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum, and the Rijksmuseum. Beyond the Leidseplein cinema district, the EYE Film Institute (2012) on the harbour and the Tuschinski (1921) next to the Munt, offer cinemas within spectacular architecture. There is a wide variety of excellent restaurants, two street markets and a farmers’ market in the neighbourhood too (see Links 3 and 4 below). For the enjoyment of the city's open spaces try the Vondel Park or further away the Sloterpark where, with the lake and dense woodland, it's about as rural as it gets. TRAVEL To walk, to bike or to jump on a tram, whatever your preference, Amsterdam is a delightful adventure. The main train station, Amsterdam Centraal, is a short walk away (15-20 mins). Trams and buses run on schedule and several useful lines e.g. 5, 13, 14, 17 stop nearby see (Link 1) below for full information. The OV chipcard (a public transport smartcard) can be bought and topped up at newsagents, stations and some supermarkets see (Link 2) below for further details on all transport provision. Bikes can be hired across the canal. This listing is exclusive to Sabbaticalhomes.com check terms of use https://www.sabbaticalhomes.com/termsofuse.aspx
