EARL 157 - This home is the ideal mix of what a family home in Amstelveen should offer. A south-facing garden, by the water, full recent remodel, comfort, luxury, location and a fabulous welcoming ambiance.
Ground floor: entrance with a foyer, hall with a restroom, door to the cellar.
Living room at the front of the house with an unobstructed view of the water. Kitchen/lounge at the rear in the new extension. The kitchen is modern and features an island with a breakfast bar, built-in appliances such as a large gas range and a combination Quooker tap. The kitchen has plenty of room for a large dining table to seat large groups for dinner and drinks. This room has French doors that open to the long south-facing backyard.
First floor: landing that accesses all rooms. Two spacious bedrooms at the front and rear, and another smaller bedroom at the rear. The bathroom is equipped with a large walk-in shower, a vanity and a toilet. The primary bedroom at the rear opens to the rear balcony that is situated on the roof of the extension.
Second floor: landing that accesses all rooms. Two bedrooms with vaulted ceilings due to the exposed roof ridge. Bathroom with a bathtub/shower, a sink and a toilet. The landing accommodates the central heating unit and the fittings for the laundry station. Efficient storage space has been created above the landing. Further storage is available behind the side panels.
Cellar: The hall leads to the cellar below. The cellar, spanning the floor area equal to the hall above, has sufficient clearance and is ideal for storage.
The outdoor space
The backyard faces south, and despite the extension, it still measures 14 meters long. The garden's positioning ensures ample sun exposure, from morning until late in the evening. There is a terrace off the kitchen that can accommodate a large table. This terrace also has an automatic awning over the full width for shade. The brick shed is perfect for your garden tools and equipment, as well as bicycles and further storage. A side window in the shed allows for natural daylight entry. There is also access to the backyard via a back gate from the alley.
The front garden is paved and features several flowerbeds with shrubs.
The property was built in 1946, just following WWII during the national reconstruction period. Subsequently, this home has concrete flooring throughout.
A benefit is that there is hardly any noise from the upstairs level. The recent roof extension is made of wood, but is set on a concrete beam structure, lending this level the same solid feel.
As the property was built just after the war, it still features many of the details of 1930s homes, including the original interior doors and a curved front door.
The home is on east Graaf Aelbrechtlaan, so that it is approximately a five-minute walk from Amstelveen's Stadshart, which offers a wide range of shops, a large square with cafes, the city theater, library and numerous hotspots.
The historic town center, at approximately five minutes' cycling distance, is also home to many good, welcoming restaurants.
Relax and enjoy nature in nearby Amsterdamse Bos, directly accessible by bike via Oude. Smaller parks, such as Broerse Park and De Braak are even closer to the home.

Patisserie Prenger: Specialized in cakes and patisserie
Gia Gelato: For real Italian ICE CREAM!
Gusto World of Pizza: The best pizza, traditional Neapolitan recipe

What the owners will miss
We have lived so happily in this family home that exudes peace, space and light. A wide view and the beautiful light give the house a good vibe. With a lovely south-facing garden, we can be found in the backyard with the first rays of sunshine. Amstelveen will amaze you and certainly be missed by us.
