House in Amsterdam, Netherlands

Our house is in a quiet neighbourhood with a lot of green around. it was built in the 1930s. The house is a kind of duplex flat, on the first and second floor. There are no other floors above us. On the first floor we have a living room en suite. We use the back part as a dining room, it is near the half open kitchen with all the necessary appliances. Furthermore a toilet and we have a small balcony on the front side and on the back side of our house.
On the second floor we have two bedrooms and a study, a bathroom with shower and, separate, another toilet. The bedrooms have a double bed (queen size). So there is place for 4 persons (also more when happy with matrasses on floor). 
One of the bedrooms and the study have a small balcony as well.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Amsterdam Schiphol - 20 km

Our house is in a green neighborhood of Amsterdam. It is only 10 minutes by bike or tram to the old city center. There are several parks close to the house (Frankendael, Oosterpark, Flevopark), shops in walking distance, a children's zoo at the end of the street. It is a nice neighborhood to relax after a busy day in the city center.

About Our Family

We are Philip (62), writer/translator, and Wendie (60), managing director at the department of History, European Studies and Religious Studies of the University of Amsterdam. We have two grown up daughters who live on their own and only occasionally will join us in our holidays.
 

Lifestyle

We are interested in city exchanges in Spring or Autumn (f.e. New York, Roma, London, Berlin, Madrid, Lisbon). In Summer we prefer a place near the sea or a lake, preferably within walking distance of a (small) town or village (only one person of our family has a driving licence).
Countries we would like to visit in the next years are Norway, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Italy (always!), United States (always!).
We'd also love a winter holiday in a skiing area.
