Herengracht 455F, 1017 BS Amsterdam
Distinctive and spacious apartment (approx. 80m²) in the middle of Amsterdam overlooking the beautiful Herengracht. The residence has a tasteful living room with a charming kitchen-cum-living and a good-sized bedroom with bathroom en-suite. The building is part of the ‘Golden Bend’, one of the most prestigious spots in the canal belt of Amsterdam. In short: a wonderful place to live in the historic centre of Amsterdam!

The apartment is located in the centre of Amsterdam, between the Leidsegracht the Vijzelstraat. This location absolutely qualifies as the heart of the centre. The PC-Hoofstraat, the Rijksmuseum, the well-known Negen Straatjes (the 9 streets), the Leidseplein, the Rembrandtplein, the Kalverstraat: it's all right there within walking distance. The immediate vicinity offers a wide range of cultural amenities, amongst which several cinemas and the Royal Carré Theatre, as well as various cafés and restaurants, gyms and yoga studios. The lovely Amstelveld is only a couple of minutes on foot where you will find many high-quality shops along Utrechtsestraat as well as the Amstel river, and the Music Theatre ('Stopera') where you can enjoy both opera and ballet performances.
The apartment can be easily reached by public transport, tram line 24 stops on Vijzelstraat and number 4 on Utrechtsestraat, and on Leidsestraat you will find even more tram stops. The underground runs from North to South (hence its name: the Noord-Zuidlijn) and can also be easily reached. It will take only 4 minutes to Amsterdam Central, six minutes to the Zuidas business centre, and approx. twenty minutes to Schiphol Airport. By car, the A10 and A2 ring roads are easily accessible from this part of Amsterdam.

The lift in the impressive common entrance takes you right to the entrance of the apartment on the third floor.

Named after the rulers of the city: the Heren Regeerders (in those days the city wasn't governed but ruled). The canal was present but it was no more than a ditch when they decided to widen it in 1612. Following this year it became the canal as we know it today: the first of the three main canals. The extended canal behind the Leidsegracht is part of the 1658 extension. The Nieuwe Herengracht is part of this extension as well (source: Stadsatlas Amsterdam).
