I bought this house two years ago a go and still fall in love with it everytime I come home. View over the canal, 5 minutes walk to the Vondelpark and 3 to the tram and a really nice upcoming neighbourhood.
It's the most upcoming neighbourhood of Amsterdam, next to the Vondelpark and within 1 minute of the high-way exit. Many very nice new bars, restaurants and terraces.
3 minutes from the Hoofddorpplein (square) from which busses and trams leave to everywhere in Amsterdam.
