The Bloemgracht is for many the most beautiful canal in Amsterdam. In the heart of the Jordaan with a variety of buildings, a lot quieter than the main canals and also more atmospheric. On this particular canal stands a majestic former warehouse "the Jonge Saaijer" which proudly and sturdily towers above most buildings. The top apartment in this monumental building is currently for sale.

Located in Amsterdam this special and spacious apartment on the Bloemgracht. The apartment has a living area of 165 m and on the 7th floor another 39 m of other indoor space and was built in the second half of the 18th century.

Unique living in Amsterdam. That is possible in this neighborhood and certainly in this impressive building. The apartment Bloemgracht 81-6 spreads over the 6th floor with approximately 165m of living space and centrally there is a 7th floor with another 39m surface. Because the building is higher than average, the windows on three sides offer phenomenal views of the city. It is partly for this reason not a warehouse apartment like all the others, this warehouse apartment is light and offers opportunities for even more light!

The building was built in 1763 and was used as a sugar refinery, 'the Jonge Saaijer'. Of this, the beautiful facade stone by the residents restored in 1995. It is therefore a special monument.

In total the building consists of 8 apartments and is situated on private land. There is one entrance for the entire building. Each floor has an apartment, except the first floor which consists of two apartments. The apartment Bloemgracht 81 VI is reached from the fresh staircase and has its entrance on the 5th floor. Then you enter the house centrally in the spacious hall.

From the spacious living room en suite on the street and with an open kitchen on the other side, you will immediately notice the width and height. At the front, a sturdy winch still hangs around a beautiful wooden roof structure, possibly partly to be equipped with a screed. The back suite has extra windows in the roof shield, making it no longer a warehouse but a full-fledged space. The kitchen, like the bathroom, is efficient and simple.

There is a hallway from the kitchen to the rear of the property. You then encounter here the toilet, a 2nd kitchen, laundry room, 2 bedrooms to finally emerge into a huge back room. This room, like the suite on the street side has a free ridge height of approximately 400cm. All rooms have daylight and this unique height for a warehouse. The layout of the floor is easy to change because there are no load-bearing walls.

Between the two voids to the front and back room is a complete 7th floor built which consists of a storage room, a landing and at the front and rear a bedroom. The ceiling height of this floor of approximately 40m is approximately 165cm. Perhaps the design sketches and a.i. drawings on behalf of the seller can inspire you to make something beautiful of the apartment. Hereby both floors are integrated into a generous, unique urban loft.

The house is neat and simple in design and luxury. There is central heating, mostly double glazing and wooden floor coverings. The whole offers by the surface, possibilities, plenty of daylight and the striking width definitely possibilities to make a unique loft of which many will be jealous. Please refer to the professionally prepared artist impressions for a 'look & feel' of the whole.

Amsterdam is the largest Dutch city, the capital of the Netherlands, and the nation's financial, business, cultural and commercial capital as well. Since its founding in the 12th century, Amsterdam has evolved from a small fishing village into one of the most important ports in the world during the Dutch Golden Age. Museums like the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh and the Stedelijk also give Amsterdam serious cultural credibility. Amsterdam's compact size, cycling lifestyle, diverse population (more than 170 nationalities), English-speaking natives, abundance of green space, reliable public transportation system and central location within Europe mean it's not only a great place to visit, but also a great place to live.
