The region around the Garden House is typically Dutch: history of our struggle against the sea; where Rembrandt painted; historical and contemporary architecture; tour along the fishermans villages along the IJsselmeer (Volendam, Edam, Marken) Open air museum Zaanse Schans. And... van Gogh, Rijksmuseum, Eye (film museum), and just walk along the canals.... Amsterdam is great, though small: everything within easy reach!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I am born&grown, educated in Amsterdam, but lived and worked for years in tropical areas as a doctor (clinical and public health). My wife Carla works for the Municipality of Amsterdam. We love to make long bicycle tours in Holland and abroad. We are active in a local group of climate activists for CO2 reduction among citizens.

Why the Owner Chose Waterland, Amsterdam, Netherlands:
Carla became somehow 'claustrophic' in our previous 7 th floor apartment. To our surprise we ended up in Amsterdam North where nature is in the backyard....We were very lucky to find this place and never take it for granted.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
After an exiting day in town get rid of the noise and dust. Park your car secure in front of the house at no cost. Even better, leave your car next day; take our (free!) bicycles. After 20 minutes you are in town after enjoying the view from the (free/7x24) ferry. Even taxi drivers often say: 'Wow, I didn't know we have places like this in Mokum' !! (local nick name of Amsterdam).
