Unique and free living next to the charming Zandhoeksbrug with the Westerdok as your backyard! We offer a spacious and bright detached house of 165 m² total floor space with a storage room, indoor garage and a jetty for several boats with a water area of no less than 293 m². A characteristic house with great views of The IJ.

Living on Realeneiland. An oasis of calm in the centre of Amsterdam, quiet and traffic-free, in a historic environment a stone's throw from the Jordaan, Haarlemmerdijk and Westerpark.

Private entrance from the street. The hall gives access to a toilet, meter cupboard and the living room. The bright living room is very practical in size and is lovely and light thanks to the large windows. Through a sliding glass door with step, the closed kitchen is accessible. The kitchen is equipped with a kitchen unit with built-in appliances. However, a renovation is desirable in order to be able to cook with modern technology. By the way, the kitchen has a beautiful view of the Westerdok and even to Het IJ.
From the living room is also the lower (living) room. This beautiful room has a direct connection to the terrace and the water and was used as a home office. Once outside, there is approximately 65 m² of terrace at the back of the house with several jetties for boats. There are also a boiler room, terrace room and (sailing) storage room. The adjacent water area of 293 m² (!) also belongs to the sold property.

The bedroom floor is accessible via the staircase in the hallway. On this floor there are two well-sized bedrooms, the bathroom and a wall closet. In the smallest bedroom, there is a scissor staircase giving access to the attic of over 5 m².

Finally, there is a 4 m² cellar where perhaps a wine stash could be laid out.

Finding a (car) parking space is not necessary. Very conveniently, there is an indoor garage that is also heated.

The house is located on the corner of Realengracht/Zandhoek, a quiet location in the historic centre of Amsterdam, on Realen Island. This island is one of the three western islands that make up ''the Golden Reel''. The islands are connected by wooden drawbridges. A special place in Amsterdam, a village within the city centre. Beautiful warehouses, small shipyards, marinas, studios and galleries contribute to a fascinating living environment and a casual atmosphere.

The residential house is located within walking distance of the Jordaan, Haarlemmerdijk and Westerpark. This means a wide range of shops, markets, cafés, restaurants and even cinemas. There are also all kinds of sporting options in the immediate vicinity. There are various bus and tram stops within walking distance and Amsterdam Central Station is nearby.
