Beautiful apartment in a 17th century building near the opera in Amsterdam

Originally consisting of 2 apartments with 2 entrances, apartment 734F feels like a house with 3 floors, and 2 terraces. You can reach both lower floors by elevator or by a stately staircase with light filtering through stained glass windows into the hallway.
You enter the apartment through a small hall with a powder room to your right, followed by the kitchen which opens to the dining are. The entire high- ceilinged living/ dining space is L-shaped , dominated by 2 large windows facing the big garden with very old trees. This room is always very bright, even in bad weather, and exceptionally quiet for a city location. There is a tv, dvd player, stereo audio-equipment and a well-kept piano for music making. Also there is a built in wardrobe. The kitchen is well-equipped with 2 ovens, (one being a microwave combi), a 4 pit gas burner, and for European standards a large refrigerator. Mixers and beaters are also present.
On the second floor, again L-shaped, is my studio with a computer area and a hide-away sofa, that sleeps 2 people. From there you reach the terrace. On the same floor is also a full bathroom with a shower, toilet, a large bathtub and 2 sinks.
The third level consists of 2 bedrooms with built- in closets, a toilet with sink, and a small closet with the washing machine and central heating boiler. The dryer is in the hallway.
The beautiful garden is for general use, but difficult to access.
Shopping is very easy, as there are 2 supermarkets in 5 min. walking distance.
We have 3 bicycles for use. I do all my shopping by bike or by foot.
Public transportation is excellent in Holland so there is no need for a car.

The apartment is beautifuly located in the very center of historic Amsterdam, in walking distance of all major museums, the opera, concertgebouw, movie theaters, bars, art galleries, restaurants, and shopping streets.
