Rubensstraat 72-II&III, 1077 NA in Amsterdam
A very light, airy and attractive two-floor upstairs apartment (224 m²) with no fewer than five bedrooms, situated in a beautiful location in Amsterdam South. The apartment has recently undergone a full renovation and has a delightful, sunny, west-facing roof terrace (33 m²).
The Rubensstraat is very conveniently located for public transport links and various arterial roads (the A10 ring road). The Amsterdam South (WTC) train station is within walking distance too and offers direct connections to Central Station and Schiphol. The apartment is also very conveniently located for the Beethovenstraat and the Cornelis Schuytstraat, both of which have a diverse range of shops and cosy little restaurants and make this area one of the most popular in Amsterdam. The apartment is situated just around the corner from the British School. Households in this urban district are able to obtain two parking permits per address, without the inconvenience of a waiting list.
A separate entrance and private staircase.
A landing and hall that gives access to all of the rooms on this floor. The room at the front of the property on this floor is currently being used as an office, but would also make an ideal bedroom, or even two children's rooms. The dual-aspect living room on this floor has doors that open out onto the west-facing balcony at the back of the property. The kitchen-dining room is situated to the rear of the apartment too and comes complete with all of the appliances that you might expect, such as a five-burner gas hob, oven, microwave oven, dishwasher and a fridge with a freezer section. A utility room is accessible from the hall on this floor too and is the perfect place for an extra freezer, for example.
A landing and hall that gives access to all of the rooms on this floor. This floor of the apartment has three spacious bedrooms, a laundry room with connections for a washing machine and dryer and a large bathroom with a bath, rain shower and double washbasin. The landing also gives access to the apartment’s charming, sunny roof terrace, which has a west-facing aspect. This side of the property benefits from a beautiful kitchenette too; it complements the roof terrace perfectly, having both water and electricity connections.
Another generously-proportioned room can be found on the top floor of the apartment. It would make a very good fifth bedroom.
