Beautiful Detached Listed property with a spacious annexe in the old centre of the village of ‘Broek in Waterland’ (Near Amsterdam) with ample on-site car-parking and a large, well maintained, garden.
This is a rare opportunity to buy a house of this quality. The house was built in 1780 in the ‘Broeker’ style (popular at the time) with many refinements and beautiful details. In 1983 the annexe was extended in the same ‘Broeker’ style. Over the years both the house and the annexe have been well maintained. The main house has a spacious lounge with antique fireplace, dining room overlooking the garden, large kitchen-diner and three bedrooms over a total floor area of approximately 2,400 sq ft. The annexe has a floor area of just over 1,000 sq ft including a large living space and bathroom. The house and the annexe stand in a plot of a third of an acre.
‘Broek in Waterland’ is one of the most attractive villages in the middle of the so called ‘Waterlands’ North of Amsterdam. In Broek in Waterland you can live in a peaceful environment yet be within easy reach of Amsterdam. Good access roads to Amsterdam are only 3 miles away. There are several local amenities, including shops, a primary school and various sports clubs. It is a fantastic place for children to grow up. The public transport connections to Amsterdam are excellent. There is a frequent bus service that takes you straight to ‘Amsterdam Central Station’ and later this year there will be a direct underground link to the South of Amsterdam.
