This characterful, well-maintained canal house is situated on the most beautiful part of the Raamsingel. At the front, the house offers unobstructed views of the Singel and, at the back, you will be surprised by the large south-facing and sunny city garden (approx. 23x7 m) with a spacious (partly glass-covered) terrace/veranda and wooden storage shed.
Thanks to its central location, it only takes two minutes to walk to the 775 years’ old city centre with its host of cafés, restaurants, theatres, such as the Stadsschouwburg, and museums. The historic city park Haarlemmerhout with its monumental trees lies just around the corner and the central station is only five minutes cycling. The location is within easy reach of the arterial roads, and you can get to the Kennemer Dunes and the beaches of Bloemendaal and Zandvoort by bike within half an hour. There are both primary and secondary schools nearby.
In short, a splendid house at a marvellous location on the canal!
