Henri Polaklaan 17 III+IV Amsterdam


A wonderful double maisonette of approximately 150 sq. m. with lots of character in the Plantagebuurt area! Located on freehold property, the residence has high ceilings of between 3 and 3.45 m and an ideal combination of modern and original features. The home is fully equipped with new window frames with double glazing and a herringbone parquet floor, but it also has original features such as en-suite sliding doors, beautiful ceiling mouldings and a working fireplace, all of which have been lovingly preserved.

The residence is located in a beautiful building dating from 1880 in the centre of Amsterdam in the popular Plantagebuurt area, near Artis Royal Zoo. The leafy Henri Polaklaan avenue has retained its pastoral charm more so than any other street in the area. The homes have spacious front gardens, and the avenue is further characterized by vast swaths of greenery at both ends, with the Wertheim Park on one end and the zoo on the other. A wide range of shops are just a stones throw away. There is no lack of culture in the vicinity: the Muziekgebouw aan het IJ concert hall, Tropenmuseum, the Hermitage, Royal Carr Theatre, Artis Zoo, Hortus Botanicus, the National Opera and Ballet, Waterlooplein, Brouwerij t IJ and the National Maritime Museum are just around the corner.
The home is very easily accessible by both car and public transport. The A10 motorway is just five minutes away through the tunnel, and a tram will whisk you to Amsterdam Central Station in a quick ten minutes.

Separate toilet and two spacious, built-in cupboards, one of which serves as the up-to-code meter cupboard.

The high ceilings of 2.95 m, the en-suite layout, beautiful original ceiling mouldings, the balcony at the front and the fireplace give these rooms a light and spacious feel.
