The spacious ground-floor apartment is in a very popular location. This section of the De Lairessestraat is home to many luxurious residential properties with broad facades. It is an extremely popular and attractive neighbourhood, with many facilities within walking distance, including the Vondelpark, the Concertgebouw and the internationally acclaimed museums at the Museumplein. Fashionable boutiques and high-end shops are also located nearby in the Cornelis Schuytstraat, the Van Baerlestraat and the P.C. Hooftstraat. The Museumkwartier area also features trendy restaurants and nightlife, as well as primary and secondary schools within easy walking distance. At weekends, locals meet at the ZuiderMRKT, a market with high-quality products at the intersection of the Johannes Verhulststraat and the Jacob Obrechtstraat. Excellent public transport connections and paid parking (with permit) along the streets provide access to and from the neighbourhood. At the moment, parking permits are available with no waiting period. Plans have been drawn up to divert vehicle and bus traffic from the De Lairessestraat to make it a quieter street to live on.
