This lovely, bright apartment with original features and French balcony is offering mod cons and a perfect base from which to explore the city. The beautiful Vondelpark is around the corner and the major art museums, Leidseplein, Jordaan and canals
The apartment is located in the cool neighbourhood Oud-West which is dotted with numerous hip cafés and restaurants and where handsome quiet, tree-lined residential streets alternate with bustling shopping streets.
It's on the second floor of a typical Amsterdam house that was build in 1898. The apartment has a lot of original features such as large windows ensuring that the house is flooded with natural (sun)light. A small French balcony looks out on the street, while the bigger balcony at the back looks out on the enclosed green gardens that are typical for this neighbourhood.
The white walls and wooden flooring offer the perfect canvas for the apartment's trendy interior where traditional features are matched with vintage pieces and design classics such as the Dutch Gispen dining room chairs, Leitmotiv and Mirnicology lamps.
Next to the dining room is a semi-open kitchen that is well equipped with an espresso machine, a 'breakfast cube' containing a toaster, juicer, coffee machine and water kettle (Dutch design by Jan des Bouvrie), a dishwasher, oven, microwave and fridge.
There is a double bed in the cosy bedroom and a single bed and sofa bed in the living room which makes the apartment comfortable to sleep in with up to 4 people. They all have thick comfortable mattresses.
The house gets snuggly warm in minutes because of the central heating system with low H2O convectors.

I've been living in Amsterdam with my partner for 25 years now enjoying the buzz of this fantastic city and the easy lifestyle. I would like to welcome you to this apartment and our trendy neighbourhood Oud-West. I love travelling around the world, photography, art and architecture.
