Fantastic ground floor apartment from the ‘30s, located in the wide part of the street. The apartment of approx. 102 m2 has 3 bedrooms and a cozy patio garden with a wooden shed. It is completely renovated while retaining the authentic atmosphere, partly in 2005 and partly in 2011. All the walls are plastered, the house has beautiful panel doors and it also has floor heating in the bathroom and in the extension.

Entrance with a built-in closet and a wardrobe, hallway with toilet and access to the living room. The living room has an oak floor. Open kitchen with a dining area in the extension with floor heating and skylights. The modern kitchen is equipped with all necessary applications.

On the street side there is a big children’s bedroom and on the garden side the master bedroom with built-in closets and an indoor storage room with the central heating system and the washer-dryer connection. In the middle there is the luxury bathroom with a sunken bath, a walk-in shower with rain shower, a washbasin and floor heating.

The bedroom at the garden side and the children’s bedroom have patio doors to the garden. The cozy patio garden is maintenance-friendly and has a sitting area and a wooden shed. The woodwork in the garden, such as the fence, storage and hardwood decking were replaced in 2020. Residents in Herschelstraat often sit at one of the picnic tables in front of their home; this is typical for the wider streets in the Watergraafsmeer.

The Watergraafsmeer is like a village in Amsterdam, with a good mix of young and old. Typical is the spacious and green layout, it is child friendly because of the wide sidewalks and the big greeneries. Everything is located at walking distance in this area of the Watergraafsmeer. For your daily groceries you can go to the Christiaan Huygensplein or a little further to shopping center Oostpoort.

In the nearby Park Frankendael or the Flevopark there is room to sport, play and relax. Once a month there is the Pure Market in Park Frankendael. At short distance there are multiple sportclubs such as football, hockey, tennis but you also have a swimming pool and the famous Jaap Edenbaan for ice skating.

The Watergraafsmeer knows many restaurants. Enjoy the (evening) sun at Elsa’s, Bar 1900 or at Café Cliché. There are plenty of entertainment venues or else you can bike to the Nieuwmarkt or Waterlooplein within 10 minutes.
