Crazy house on fantastic location! Modern national monument in back house. Very attractive with beautiful original details and very light through the large windows. Communal courtyard garden with bicycle storage. In the historic Begijnhof: surprisingly quiet living on a fairytale-like location in the heart of the centre.
This unique house is part of five flats that have been realised in the original mayor's house from 1641 at Jansstraat 57. Around 1800, a rear house was built in which the two dwellings at the Begijnhof were realised.
The house has been modernised over the past few years, while retaining its original character.
preserved. The kitchen, bathroom and toilet have been stylishly renewed and the painting was done in 2019. The high ceilings and large windows make the house very light, the white wooden floors, the beautiful ceiling beams, the panel doors with matching door hardware and the stained-glass windows make the house very attractive.
The attic is nice and spacious and could be used as an extra living space through a renovation, for example for an extra bedroom or study.
The courtyard is accessible through a locked gate that can also be opened from the house. There is a bicycle shed for the residents of the courtyard in the communal garden. Parking is available in the Beguinage itself with a parking permit or in one of the parking garages.
The historic Begijnhof is hidden on one of the oldest squares in Haarlem and was originally the place where the Beguines lived; single women who had chosen this form of living to preserve their personal freedom. Now, the Begijnhof is an oasis of tranquillity that connects its old history with the liveliness of the bustling city centre. De Schuur and the Philharmonie are a one-minute walk away. A few steps further is the Grote Markt with the impressive Sint Bavokerk, many delicious restaurants and cosy terraces. In Haarlem city centre, there are many cosy events every year, such as Haarlem Culinair and Haarlem Jazz. And because of the hidden location, none of the merrymaking is noticeable in the house. The ideal combination of relaxation, tranquillity and lively hustle and bustle!
