(Expat) families your attention please: a spacious 1930’s town house of almost 125 m2 with a back garden facing south, situated in the populair quarter known as Elsrijk. This house has 5 bedrooms (of which one is currently in use as a walk-in closet), which makes it perfectly suitable for a family with multiple children. The house has a front garden as well and has an unobstructed view over the canal in front. Because of this canal the street is rather wide, which enables even more light to reach the living room. In the spacious backyard you find a roomy shed and you’ll have sun almost the whole day!
Ground floor: you enter the house through the main hall past the front door. You’ll find the wardrobe, storage space, stairs, meter closet and the water closet on your righthand side. On the left you’ll find the doorway to the living room. The entire ground floor has been fully renovated in 2014, with extra attention for the kitchen, situated at the rear of the house. The kitchen furniture is Siematic, and appliances are Gaggenau (fridge, wine cellar, dish washer, Quooker) and Siemens. The floor of the kitchen is heated and controlled by a thermostat on the wall. The seating area is located at the front if the house. At the back you find the dining area and the open kitchen, which both have opening doors with direct access to the backyard. All windows on the ground floor have been fitted with double glass.
First floor: though the passage here you’ll have access to the bathroom, 1 bedroom at the front and the master bedroom and the walk-in closet at the back. All bedrooms have access to a balcony and the bedroom at the front has a small ‘en suite’ shower and sink, making it perfectly suitable as a guest bedroom. The master bedroom has recently been painted and has been fitted with new electrics and double glass. The bathroom has a bath, separate shower and a sink. Finally, the passage also has a separate laundry room with space for a washer and a dryer (and an extra toilet).
Second floor: on the top floor you find the 4th and 5th bedroom. One of these rooms is currently in use as a home-office. The top floor also has a spacious passage, with extra storage and the central heating boiler is located here. Due to the ceiling height this floor is perfectly suitable for living-purposes and not just as an attic.
The two top floors are in need of some modernizing (bathroom, floors, overall finish) but all of this can be done quickly and without too much trouble. After this the house will be completely ready to live in for many unencumbered years!
When in front of the house looking left, the street goes toward the Keizer Karelweg and the Amstelveen commercial center. Going right takes you toward the “old tram line” (paralleled by a cycling path that goes South toward the Keizer Karel College), the Molenweg, and the Amsterdamseweg, where you can do all of your day-to-day (and not so day-to day) shopping. For example: the Albert Heyn, the butcher, an eco-shop, the French bakery, restaurants, the dentist, the doctor, pharmacy, et cetera. Furthermore, Elsrijk has a large selection of schools, day-cares and several sports clubs. You can park your car(s) in front of the house, for free! Traffic is usually very light on the street, during the week and on week-ends. The Molenweg is the entry to the “free market” on Kings day, found less than 300 meters from the house. And finally, if the weather permits, the canal in front of the house is usually the first place in all of Amstelveen where you can ice-skate! Overall a very family-friendly quarter.
