New on the property market: completely renovated modern ground floor apartment (78 m2) at Bloys van Treslongstraat 16 H. This bright apartment is on the edge of De Baarsjes, Bos en Lommer and Oud-West, around the corner from Erasmuspark and Westerpark
and also has a great modern landscaped garden.
This area has lots of shops along Jan van Galenstraat and there are lots of (coffee) bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a coffee, a drink or great food. The Woeste Speelplek, an ideal play area for the children, is just around the corner.
The property is centrally located: the city centre is just 10 minutes by bike and the A-10 motorway is within easy reach by car. The area also has excellent public transport links and you can always find a parking spot in the street. You are immediately eligible for a parking permit.
Ground floor: Private entrance, hallway with stained-glass door, corridor with utility cupboard underneath the stairs where the washing machine is located, meter cupboard, large room at the front (bedroom or study) with original marble hearth, bathroom with washbasin, toilet and shower, second bathroom (children's bedroom with daylight), kitchen-diner with built-in kitchen appliances, extension with a ceiling height of 3.60m where the sitting room is located with French doors to the garden and the third bedroom. The apartment has hardwood window frames and double glazing throughout.
In 2018, the rear of the property was extended without requiring building permission; the Owners’ Association has permitted this extension. In that same year, all the walls in the property were plastered and painted, a new fuse box was installed and fuses were added, new laminate flooring was put down throughout the property, the extension has floor heating, the bathroom was upgraded (original dated back to 2010 when the property was thoroughly renovated) and a drainage system was installed in the garden with wells to collect any excess rain water.
The garden faces north and catches plenty of sun between 11 am and 6 pm during the summer.
The garden also has a handy detached (tool) shed.
Living room and kitchen
The living area in this apartment is divided into three parts.
The large room at the front can be used as a study, a play area or an additional bedroom.
At the rear of the property is the cooking and dining area, with an open plan kitchen with kitchen appliances (renewed in recent years: dishwasher in 2019 and fridge and oven in 2020). The white kitchen has black door handles and a wooden worktop.
The sitting area in the extension has a skylight and a high ceiling and is just a few steps down from the kitchen diner. The French doors lead out into the modern landscaped garden. This is also where hall that leads to the master bedroom is situated.
There are three rooms, two of which are currently used as bedrooms and one as a study. All the rooms are sufficiently bright and ventilated. The rooms have various dimensions (see the layout). The master bedroom is currently at the rear, overlooking the garden, but the large room at the front could easily serve as the master bedroom. The bedrooms have light laminate flooring throughout.
The bathroom is accessed from the hallway and includes the toilet, washbasin, shower and towel radiator which were newly installed at the end of 2018 when the extension was added.
The bathroom has white wall tiles with a decorative strip and grey floor tiling.
The apartment has a great garden, which, despite the rear exit, is no less than 36 m2 including the storage. The sunny garden is easy to maintain and was newly landscaped in 2018 when the extension was added. During that time, a drainage system was installed in the garden, keeping rainwater away from the extension, and two deep wells were dug for the collection of rainwater. The garden also has water and power supply.
The sellers can also provide a document specifying the sun exposure of the garden; this document can be obtained from the real estate agent.
The pine wood garden bench remains at the property.
Owners’ Association and service fees
The monthly service fee amounts to € 125. The active Owners’ Association is professionally managed by Ter Linden and Heijer. The documents are available at our office (minutes, maintenance plan, deed of partition, financial forecast and annual statement).
The apartment is situated on land owned by the Municipality of Amsterdam. The 2000 general provisions of the municipality of Amsterdam apply. The current period ends on 15 June 2062; the ground lease was fixed by the seller until 2022. This means that the annual ground rent currently amounts to € 641.61. After 10 years, the ground lease is indexed and fixed. The sellers filed an application with the municipality in 2019 for a transfer to perpetual ground rent. This application can be transferred to the buyer with the sale.
The property can be delivered at the end of January 2021.
