Banstraat 5-D, 1071 JV Amsterdam
A perfect combination of luxury and location – this unique apartment forms part of a high-end, architect-designed complex at the top segment of the market. It offers a one-floor living area of approximately 346 m² with a spacious 70 m² terrace at a prime location in Amsterdam Oud-Zuid. The unique complex was completed in 2014 and includes several luxury elements, such as multiple lifts with direct access to the apartment, ceiling and floor heating as well as cooling, a home automation system and caretaker services. Two very spacious parking spaces in the parking garage below this elegant dwelling add to the superb comfort.
The architect behind this striking 11-apartment building is Roberto Meyer. The complex replaced an old social services office building, erected in 1973, which was totally at odds with the architecture of the smart 19th-century buildings characterising the neighbourhood. The design focused on creating better harmony with the existing street scene and there is no denying that it succeeded in doing exactly that. The façades are transparent and their vertical articulation provides interesting emphasis.
Both the design and finish are extraordinary. Only the finest materials, floors, lighting, door fittings and taps adorn this apartment. In addition, it features cutting-edge technology, for instance for controlling the lights (remotely, if so desired), climate control and security (using a home automation system).
The Banstraat is located in the heart of Amsterdam Oud-Zuid, where connecting streets include the van Breestraat, Valeriusstraat and Johannes Verhulststraat. The Cornelis Schuytstraat with its wide range of luxury shops, specialty food stores and delicatessens is only a stone’s throw away. The neighbourhood also is well-known for its multitude of fine lunchrooms and excellent restaurants. The Concertgebouw, Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Museumplein are all within walking distance and the Vondelpark is only a few steps further down the road. In addition, this extraordinary project offers excellent accessibility: public transport or your own car take you to the ‘Ring’ in no time and Schiphol Airport is only a 20 minute drive away.
Layout of the apartment
Sophisticated common entrance and caretaker’s area. A spacious lift takes you to the first floor, with direct access to the apartment.
Entrance from the lift – the doors of the lift literally open into the spacious hall of the apartment. The hall provides access to all the rooms of the apartment. The living with two adjoining French balconies is located at the front of the building and offers a fabulous unobstructed view all the way down the Valeriusstraat. It has a cosy gas fire and offers access to the 15 m² loggia featuring folding doors and a vertical green wall including a watering system. The front façade faces West, allowing you to enjoy the sunshine until late in the afternoon.
The dining area has a lovely custom-made wine cabinet and connects the living to the spacious Sucupira wood finished kitchen, which is equipped with a gas stove, cosy coffee corner and all the built-in appliances you can possibly think of. The practical utility room with plenty of storage space can be used as a laundry room and leads you back to the central hall.
The three spacious bedrooms are located at the back of the apartment. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and an en suite natural stone bathroom with stand-alone bath, double rain shower, double sink and washlet. Double doors in the master bedroom open up to a French balcony.
The room in the middle is the second (bed)room and has double doors to the lovely spacious terrace. This room is currently used as a study. The terrace looks out on the Obrecht church and is equipped with heating and a watering system.
The third bedroom again has its own bathroom, featuring rain shower, sink and toilet.
Another door in the central hall leads to the cloakroom and toilet for guests. The technical area can be accessed from the cloak room.
And finally, there is a spacious internal storage area next to the lift.
