The longer version:

You are alone to enjoy this spacious apartment of 190 m2 (2000 square feet) which occupies the two top floors of a canal house. It is situated just two minutes walking distance from the Jordaan & sits on the edge of the UNESCO World Heritage Amsterdam canal district. Another 5 minutes walk and you are at the Leidseplein, home to Amsterdam’s best music venues, The Paradiso, and The Melkweg. The Vondelpark, Van Gogh and Rijks Museums are also easily reached on foot.

A diamond merchant constructed the building in 1900 and it is called a “royal apartment” due to the fact that it has extra high ceilings and wider rooms. Orientated on an east/west axis with large windows spanning the width of every room, it is a light and airy apartment, which is unusual for Amsterdam.

The central location gives access excellent public transport, parking and many local cafes, bars, restaurants and shops.

The apartment has a private entrance and is situated on the 3’rd and 4’th floor of a canal house. The apartment is not suitable for people with disabilities as there is no elevator.

There is contemporary stand lamp lighting throughout the apartment.

The first floor of the house has a spacious living room with high ceilings that runs the length of the building. At the front there is a canal view and balcony. The living room has a large dining table comfortably sits 8 people. A top of range 46' Samsung TV is connected to an audiophile level Marantz AVR amplifier & UK Sky satellite (Movie channels, BBC1-4, ITV1-4, Channel4-5 etc). The AVR is equipped with airplay and can stream audio from any apple device anywhere in the apartment (IPhone/IPad/IPod/Macbook etc) and it has a USB input for other audio devices. If you have a hard disk with movies you can connect it to either the TV or AVR receiver. There is also a region free DVD player.

On this floor there is a toilet (1/2 bath), a fully equipped kitchen and utility room with a microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. In the kitchen for your convenience and pleasure there is a Philips Senseo coffee machine with a supply of coffee pods and a latte/cappuccino milk heater and frother.

On the second level there are 3 bedrooms that feature architect designed & hand crafted furniture. The master bedroom is equipped with a king sized bed & Marantz AirPlay equipped amplifier. The smaller bedroom and the second has a double bed and wash basin. There is a large bedroom with a canal view balcony; it has twin beds that can be combined into a comfortable double. There is also Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin music system.

The large modern bathroom has a deep vintage bath, separate shower, toilet and underfloor heating. On this floor there is also a second separate toilet (1/2 bath) with a wash basin. Towels and bed linen are provided. A crib/cot can be supplied on request.

On the roof is a 60m2 terrace with a garden table, benches and gas barbecue grill. The quiet terrace gets sun all day long and has incredible 360° views of the city. From here you can look out over all of Amsterdam.

All the main rooms of the house feature hardwood flooring. While all the rooms are non-smoking, smoking is allowed on the balconies and roof terrace.

The standard check in time is after 4PM, though it should be possible to drop your baggage at the apartment if you need to. Check out time is before 10AM. If there is no other booking on the day of your arrival or departure we can arrange an early check-in or late checkout on request.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              Why the Owner Chose Amsterdam:
              We love this area of Amsterdam & bought here before it became the new hip area of the city.. Its central for everything & has great shops near by and you don't need to bicycle or tram - you can just walk everywhere. We have a child and there are many play areas and parks within minutes of the apartment.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Despite being over a century old this apartment feels truly modern as we have completed two major renovations in the past decade. It is the perfect place to stay while you explore our beautiful city.
