A new and comfortable appartment in a quiet neighbourhood near the center of Amsterdam

We are very lucky to have a comfortable new appartment with a big living, 2 bedrooms and a view on a canal and a nice balcony (10m2). We have a private parking. Everything you need is in the house and you can use everything. There is a fine elevator too.

We live in an quiet neighbourhood in Amsterdam 15 minutes walk from the northwest side of the centre The area is called the Houthavens (woodharbour) because in former times there was a harbour for wood. There still is a harbour close to the house. Next to our area are old Amsterdam neighbourhoods like the Jordaan. Het Westerpark is also 15 minutes walk away and there you find in old buildings café's and restaurants but als nice lanes.

The shops are only 5 minutes walking away and the railwaystation is also nearby ( 25 minutes walk or 10 minutes by frequent bus).
It is situated very good for sightseeing Amsterdam and the Netherlands( by train, by car or by bike)
There are several bikeroutes from the house and there are nice walks from the house. It is easier of course, but you don't need a car because there are trains in every direction.

We are both historians by study but we worked in other disciplines (HRM and government) and are now retired.
We are 65 and 67 old.
