WELCOME TO THE NEIGHBOURHOOD
Roerstraat is one of the most attractive streets in the Rivierenbuurt district, affording you a lovely open view of a large public garden and playing field. Right around the corner is Maasstraat,a popular shopping street lined with all kinds of charming shops, specialist stores, cafés and restaurants. It is an ideal place to live: a quiet neighbourhood with schools, nurseries and playgrounds within walking distance, yet with the city’s dynamic vibe just a stone’s throw away. It takes just five minutes to cycle to the bustling market area of the Pijp, while the Zuidas business district and Schiphol Airport are also within easy reach. Sports enthusiasts will be glad to know that Beatrixpark, the Mirandabad swimming pool, and the River Amstel are all mere minutes away. Several tramsand buses stop just up the road, and the RAI railway station and Amsterdam’s brand new North-South metro line are also close by. The location is readily accessible by car, with both the A10 and A2 motorways within easy reach and parking spots available right outside your door. There is currently no waiting list at all for a parking permit!
You ascend a stone staircase to reach the private entrance on the first floor.
The front door opens onto a spacious foyer with access to all rooms. The expansive living room features original sliding doors (stained glass) and an attractive bay window with a lovely clear view of the surrounding greenery. The stone fireplaces have been preserved and the front fireplace is already fitted out to accommodate a gas fire. The dining room at the rear has French doors that open onto the balcony. The green oasis of courtyard gardens makes this a pleasant, private spot, ideal for enjoying the late-afternoon summer sunshine. In 2016, the modern kitchen was opened up to incorporate the dining room to create an atmospheric and sociable space. The ATAG brand built-in appliances have all been recently renewed and have an 8-year warranty (fridge/freezer, combination microwave oven, gas hob, extractor fan and dishwasher). A new washer-dryer (Siemens, 2018) has also been neatly built into one of the kitchen cupboards. At the heart of the house, there is a cleverly designed bathroom with double washbasin, a large bath (Duravit) with shower, a designer radiator, and floor and mirror heating. There is a separate floating toilet (Duravit), tiled in the same style and with its own small wash basin. The spacious bedroom has plenty of room for fitted wardrobes and overlooks the public garden at the front. The second bedroom is also generously proportioned and is located at the rear. The entire home is fitted with a beautiful herringbone floor and well-finished walls.
