In perhaps one of the most beautiful streets of the Watergraafsmeer, in the popular and green part of Amsterdam East, this lovingly renovated (2020/21) three-room ground floor apartment of approx. 75 m² on freehold land (no leasehold) with a south-facing garden with a garden house of approximately 12 m².
Zacharias Jansestraat is a wide, green street with stately buildings that illustrates well the history and character of the Watergraafsmeer from the early 20th century. The apartment is centrally located just north of Park Frankendael, an estate where the more wealthy Amsterdammer used to spend their time, but is now a lovely park where people can play, meet and relax, in the middle of the Watergraafsmeer. Every last Sunday of the month there is an organic market with good food and drinks.
Furthermore, around the corner there is the cozy Middenweg and the Linnaeusstraat with a wide variety of shops, cafes, fine restaurants and just a stone's throw away the Oostpoort shopping center. There are also several schools and sports facilities nearby, such as the Jaap Edenbaan and the Middenmeer sports fields. Culture lovers can visit the Hermitage, Theater Carré and the Dutch National Opera & Ballet in the Stopera.
Public transport connections are within walking distance (tram/bus around the corner and metro/train at Amstel Station) and within five minutes by car you will be on the A-10 ring road. There is no waiting list for a parking permit in the Watergraafsmeer; for more information about parking, see www.amsterdam.nl/parkeren. You can cycle to both Leidseplein and the route along the RIiver Amstel within fifteen minutes by bike.
Approximate lay out:
Ground floor: common entrance with storage cupboard, private entrance to the apartment. The garden-oriented living room has been expanded during the renovation and has a beautiful wooden floor, built-in spotlights, approx. 3 meter high ceilings and a nice open kitchen with built-in appliances such as a dishwasher and oven.
The leafy Zacharias Jansestraat is a very quiet street, so sleeping at the frontside will be no issue. The room can accommodate a large bed and wardrobes. Here too, the same beautiful wooden floor and the steel doors connect the separate parts of the apartment. The second bedroom (now an ideal nursery) is located on the garden side. The separate toilet and the tastefully new bathroom can be reached through a hall in the middle of the house; the bathroom is equipped with a bathtub, separate shower and washbasin. The basement (12m²) can also be reached through the hall. Additional storage space has also been created underneath the extension of the apartment.
The garden on the sunny south side can be reached through the patio doors in the living room. The garden house is now used as a guest room, but it is also perfectly suited as a music or study room, or just a nice place to retreat for a while. It is quiet and the large windows provide beautiful light and make it a whole with the garden itself.
