Attractive neighbourhood in Amsterdam

We moved into our new home in the summer of 2018 after a thorough renovation. It is a spacious house (140 square meters) consisting of three floors and a garden. We have a small garden in the front (west) and a bigger garden at the back (east). The house is very suitable for families with (small) children as there are plenty of toys.

On the ground floor there is a living room (with wood stove), an open kitchen, and a laundry room. On the first floor there are three children's bedrooms (two of which are big enough for an extra mattress if necessary) and the bathroom with bath and separate shower. The parental bedroom and a study/guest room (with doubled bed) can be found in the attic.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: schiphol airport - 28km

  • golfing Golf course (3.3 km)
  • shopping Shopping center (1.0 km)
  • lake Swimming pool (0.4 km)

Our neighbourhood is quiet and child friendly with playgrounds and the Noorderpark next door. A shopping centre and the metro stop are within a kilometre distance. The beautiful 'Buiksloterdijk' with typical Dutch houses is a few steps away, and a swimming pool is at walking distance.

Amsterdam-Noord is the most 'village like' part of Amsterdam, yet it is very easily accessible by metro or a ten minute bicycle ride to the ferry that brings you to Amsterdam central station. Although Amsterdam-Noord has a village like 'feel' it is also a very upcoming part of the city with lots of new (and good quality) restaurants and cafes popping up.

At the opposite side of Amsterdam-Noord the picturesque villages of Noord-Holland (Durgerdam, Broek in Waterland, Holysloot) are very well accessible by bike and make a fun day trip in case you want to avoid the bustle of the city.
