Location and accessibility:
The property is located in the famous Vondelstraat, in a grand building opposite the Vondelpark. Despite its popularity, the street has always kept its relaxed, quiet atmosphere. A comfortable standard of living is guaranteed in this most beautiful and quietest part of the Vondelstraat, past De Hollandsche Manege riding school and the Vondelkerk. Various shops, supermarkets and specialist shops are within walking distance and there are plenty of local hospitality options too: a wide range of restaurants, bars and terraces are all just a stone’s throw away. The Van Baerlestraat, Leidseplein, P.C. Hooftstraat, De Hallen, Cornelis Schuytstraat and Museumplein are all nearby. Cultural highlights like the Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum and Koninklijke Concertgebouw are all within easy walking distance. Children will enjoy playing outside, whether on the wide pavements outside the property or in the park itself. The Vondelpark is the ideal place for sport and recreation too and various highly-regarded primary and secondary schools are within cycling and walking distance.

The Vondelstraat is very easy to reach by car, bicycle or public transport. By car, the property can be accessed via the A10 ring road (junction S106) and a number of tram and bus stops are nearby. Other parts of the city and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (a direct link) are all easy to reach as well. Parking is arranged via a permit system (source: Parking, City of Amsterdam).

Joost van den Vondel (1587-1679), poet. He wrote 24 tragedies and also poetry about heroes and heroic acts. The part of the street that was part of the municipality of Nieuwer-Amstel until 1896 was initially called the Verlengde Vondelstraat (the extended Vondelstraat). Under the leadership of C.P. van Eeghen, a number of Amsterdam residents put together a plan for the creation of a riding and walking park in 1864, which was then implemented on the basis of a design by L.D. Zocher. The first part of the park opened in 1865. When a statue of Vondel was added in 1867, the park was named the Vondelpark.
