Our original 17th century house (130m2) is located in the very center of Amsterdam: in the heart of the canal district. The family friendly house is situated in a pictorestic car-free alley w/ original historic houses. The inside is bright + stylish with huge sun terrace.
An old bakery from 1650 is now our three story family house which we renovated so that each floor has its unique character but with the comforts and style of modern living.
Sitting anywhere in the house or sun-terrace you will have a great view on Dutch historic houses with its typical house fronts you know from postcards and pictures of Amsterdam. There is a big sunny roof terrace (unique for downtown Amsterdam) attached to the well equiped kitchen. Since we love to cook you will find a kitchen devices you can imagine. On the sun terrace you can have dinners al fresco, read or just relax or look at the flowers we planted. The master bedroom has a comfy and quality double bed and the room has an open roof with the original beams on display. There is a smaller bedroom with a baby/child bed: when there is a third person we put a adultsize single bed in there. From the outside the house is original; the inside is super comfortable and cozy and well designed by my designer husband.
The house is located in the heart of the city center: it's therefore surrounded by the canal area with al its beautifull features; great restaurants, cute bars, cafe's, houseboats and markets on saturdays. The popular trendy and cozy neigbourhood Jordaan is around the corner (3 minute walk), the RedLight District with some excellent bars and restaurants and other interesting features is 4 minutes walk (Really, there is not only RedLight, trust me, there are excellent places there to discover). There are very many shops around and bars and restaurants for all likes to choose from.
Behind the royal palace on Dam square (2 minute walk) is a very big good supermarket with all the things you could possibly (organic, fresh or general stuff) need for breakfast, dinner etcetera.
How many to accomedate?
Although the house is big for Amsterdam standards, because of sleeping arrangments its ideal for a couple (with or without a child) or 3 people. When there are 3 people (or upon request when 2 people each prefer their own room) we set up a comfy 1 person bed in the smaller bedroom.
