Stunningly ground floor apartment of approx. 280m² divided over two floors with a fabulous back yard of approx. 220m². There is a possibility to build a luxury garden shed. The well-maintained apartment is part of a monumental building (listed monument dated about 1640).

The very spacious apartment includes everything you wish for such as a giant garden an extra studio-apartment in the basement with a private entrance and the possibility to create an office or practice space.

This beautifully listed monument is located in the historical centre of Amsterdam at the prestigious Herengracht, providing access to plenty of good restaurants, cafés, traiteurs and boutique shopping, yet situated in a quiet part of the Canal belt.

It’s an ideal family house, close to schools (among others ‘De Burght’ and ‘Theo Thijssen’ school), several playgrounds and gyms.
