Property description

This canal house on the Prinsengracht (110 square meters more than 1,000 square feed) is completely renovated. We bought the apartment six years ago and everything is new. As our apartment is located at a corner, there are 7 big windows overlooking the cannels which makes the apartment unique!

The apartment contains:

- Spacious master bedroom including bathroom (with bath, shower and toilet)
- Bedroom with two single beds that can be put next to each other including bathroom (with shower)
- Open kitchen
- Spacious living room including high def. TV
- Separate toilet
- Fireplace
- New beds and furniture
- Wireless unlimited internet
- New modern kitchen with everything you need including American fridge
- Wooden floors
- Double glazed windows (although you you don't need it because it's a quit area)
- Washing machine / dryer
- Towels, sheets, dishes etc.
- Excellent coffee machine

Our apartment is in the centre of Amsterdam on the South part of the canals near the 'Spiegelgracht' where all the art galleries are.

It is located 2 minutes from the 'Leidseplein';
The 'Leidseplein is very crowded both throughout the day and night. When the sun is shining, the terraces quickly become filled. Street performers entertain the public, with acrobatic acts and music. At night the crowd changes: Amsterdammers go out here to celebrate, and to visit the theatres, cinemas and clubs. It is also possible to rent bikes at the Leidseplein, which you can store in our bicycle room.

On February 1, 1999, the Dutch government decided to qualify the inner city, the canals of Amsterdam, as a monument, a protected inner city view. The girdle of canals (ranging from the Singel Canal up to the Prinsengracht Canal) is a historically important part of this region, and it is one of the city's most attractive sights.

The girdle of canals starts at River Amstel and ends at Brouwersgracht. One third of the houses along the canals (grachtenhuizen) were built before 1850. During the 17th Century the city extended its boundaries, and canals were shaped in a girdle around the oldest part of Amsterdam to accommodate wealthy tradesmen and burghers. First the Singel Canal was dug out, then the Herengracht, Keizersgracht and, last of all, Prinsengracht.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Eefje is an interior decorator working in the 'Oud Zuid' area of Amsterdam. I am an entrepreneur, with a consulting background at McKinsey & Company. We both are fond of Amsterdam, but still like to travel to all parts of the world. We both are enthusiastic sport players (field hockey, tennis, running and golf). Our children (Floris, 4 years and Lily and Isabella, both 2 years) are our newest hobby together with our silver Labrador dog Muis (Mouse in Dutch).

We bought the apartment because it is located at the best spot of Amsterdanm
