LOOKING FOR A SWAP IN NEW ENGLAND, USA, SUMMER 2018
We live in a beautiful old home in the center of Amsterdam. The house is very centrally located, only steps away from the canal area and Museum square. Our neighbourhood is residential, yet lively with lots of restaurants and a good mix of people.
The appartment is on the ground and first floor of an old townhouse, built in 1890, with lots of original ornaments from that time. At the back side of the apartment there is a small but sunny garden and a balcony on the first floor facing the south.
On the ground floor there is a living room with a big sofa, a fireplace, a TV and a SONOS system. The living area is connected to the dining area and the open kitchen. From the dining area doors swing open to the garden, which has a BBQ and nice teak wooden table with chairs. The kitchen has all the necessary appliances (refrigerator, freezer, microwave, oven, espresso machine). In the hallway leading to the first floor there is a separate toilet.
Upstairs there is a large master bedroom with a walk-in-closet with washer and dryer and a kids bedroom with also lots of space for kids to play. The rest of the first floor consists of a bathroom with a bath and separate shower, a small study and a separate toilet.
We love the house. It's light, spacious and although it's right in the heart of the city, it offers quietude.
Cycling is THE way to explore Amsterdam. We have several bikes (with childseats) for you to use.
