Flat in Amsterdam, 5th floor, overlooking a smal harbour

 
My  apartment ( 65 sq mtr.) is situated in a part of Amsterdam called The  Eastern Docklands. 
A living-room with open kitchen, a bedroom, a study and a bathroom
It is suitable for a couple, or one person without children
Nearby some of the historical buildings and warehouses are still in use but in 1980 a new residential quarter was planned and my apartment from 1994 is one of them, not very spectacular but my penthouse on the 5th floor, overlooking a small harbor is very cosy, sunny and quiet
The bedroom has a double bed. A study( overlooking the harbour) a bathroom with a shower and the living-room, sunny, with windows from ceiling towards the floor
 The apartment is surrounded by a  big terrace with a lot of plants and flowers in summertime
 The southside, overlooking the harbour, has sun during the whole day, it has a table and chairs so you can take your meals outside
The open kitchen is average but convenient,( microwave, dishwasher, washing machine)
Transportation:From the central station, which is the centre of town, towards my house will take by bus about 15 minutes, stop is in front of my building or 10 minutes by tram and 5 min. walk towards my flatThere is another tram, going directly to the historical centre
If you have the intention to come by car:  parking space is limited and expensive but there is an P+R parking nearby,
The parking is guarded 24 hours. They charge les than 10€ euro per 24 hours, maximum will be 4 days(96 hours) but you can always use the car and bring it back the same day in order to stay for another 96 hours
At the end of the street (1 min.)you will find a convenient shopping area and, once a week, there is a organic foodmarket in front of my building
Culture nearby: The Muziekgebouw, a brand new building for music, jazz and performances with a restaurant at the waterfront and the Big Library with  free internet, a reading table with all the newspapers and magazines and with a restaurant at the 7th floor with a spectacular view, is also nearby
I am in my seventies, retired as textileconservator at the Amsterdam Museum
The apartment is non smoking.
 I usualy travel alone but, if there is a guest room, I sometimes invite a friend or my son to go with me
The apartment is not suitable for children

I prefer big cities with good public transport, in the neighbourhood of an airport
