This amazing city apartment with a private balcony is located in the apartment complex ‘Residence Prins Hendrik’ which is a national monument. It has a large communal roof terrace where occasional cultural events are organized by the Owners Association. The apartment is 60 m2 (NEN2580, gross 72 m2) and is located at the rear of the complex, with views onto the quiet water of the Oudezijds Kolk, this is a tranquil hidden gem in the center of the city and a stone’s throw from Amsterdam Central Station.
The 2-room apartment has a lovely split-level layout where living and sleeping functions are spread over two floors and a large storage room in the basement (5 m2) with electricity so it is perfect for storing and charging electric bicycles. In addition to the private balcony and the roof terrace with its magnificent view over the historical center of Amsterdam, there is a smaller communal ‘hidden’ garden in the courtyard adjacent to the Sint-Nicolaas Basilica. There is even a communal exchange library. With working from home as “the norm” you can go in all directions here!
Via the main entrance of the building, you walk across the quiet courtyard to the entrance, where you take one of the two elevators to the third floor. The spacious, newly renovated hallway leads to this one of a kind apartment.
Upon entering the apartment you’ll access the high and bright living floor with its stunning arched patio doors via a staircase. To your right, you will find the modern open kitchen with various built-in appliances. You can walk through the living room, where you have a beautiful view through the patio doors that open onto the quiet Oudezijds Kolk canal, the many historic Amsterdam buildings, and the Schreierstoren. In the roof, you will find a large skylight that provides ample daylight, and that gives you, especially in the evening, a beautiful view of the Saint Nicholas Basilica.
A fixed staircase takes you down one level to the second floor. Here you will find a lot of indoor storage/washing space, a spacious hall, a modern bathroom with a hanging toilet, designer sink, and walk-in shower. The bedroom faces into the quiet courtyard and provides access to the private balcony.
The monumental “Residence Prins Hendrik”, with its fantastic newly renovated communal roof terrace boasting an intimate view of the Sint-Nicolaas Basilica, can fully conform to the wishes of our time. You find yourself in the middle of the city, but there is also space and tranquility. Private concerts are given regularly, organized by the Homeowners Association, and dinner or BBQ is organized every now and then by residents. There are BBQ facilities and comfortable sofas, tables, and umbrellas allowing you to work quietly outside and enjoy the sunset during the summer evenings with friends, without having to imagine yourself in the hustle and bustle of the city. In addition to the great roof terrace, this complex has a permanent caretaker who maintains the facilities very well.

The apartment is tucked away in a modern apartment building in the heart of Amsterdam. Amsterdam Central Station is really a stone’s throw away and in front of the door is the metro entrance, so all conceivable public transport connections can be reached within a 3-minute walk.
Shops, restaurants, and cafes can be found everywhere. Nieuwmarkt, Zeedijk, Kalverstraat, and the Dam can be reached on foot within a few minutes, and even the Jordaan and Haarlemmerstraat/dijk are only a 10-minute walk away with most other neighborhoods and districts also easily accessible within 15 minutes cycling distance. Truly the best of both worlds, quiet living space with easy access to the bustling city center.
