De Lairessestraat 72 hs – Ground-floor level duplex with enormous potential in a prime location in the Museum Quarter.

A home around the corner from Cornelis Schuytstraat, Rijksmuseum and Concertgebouw. Does that sound good? And are you looking for a property that you can remodel and finish to your own specifications? If so, take a moment to consider this ground-floor apartment in one of Amsterdam's most sophisticated neighborhoods. De Lairessestraat 72-hs is a ground-floor duplex spanning approximately 206 sqm with a large northwest-facing garden. A property that can be turned into an exquisite home.

Yesterday's charm, today's comfort
No, this is not a turn-key property. But you also don't have to live with previous owners' less than perfect design choices. De Lairessestraat is an ideal project: create a modern home in a location steeped in history. This well-maintained, elegant building from 1915 features a charming bay window, detailed masonry and a stunning front door. A warm welcome indeed.

Ground floor
The elegant entrance leads to the long corridor that opens to the large hall. The living room is currently situated at the front of the house. The dining room and sunroom face the garden. The ground floor also includes two bedrooms/ studies, a separate kitchen and access to the cellar. The current layout includes a large restroom by the staircase. Spanning a total usable residential floor area of 110.2 sqm, the layout options are endless. Showcasing ceiling heights of nearly 3 meters, this level feels both spacious and bright. A number of walls are load-bearing, but others can easily be taken down or moved.

1st floor
The 1st floor accommodates an amazing 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a 2nd restroom and ample storage space in several closets. The bay window at the front, tall ceilings (approximately 3.19 meters!) and the garden-facing balcony are exceptional bonus features. Just imagine turning the space with the sunroom into a work area! The other room at the front has a private bathroom. Will this be the future master bedroom? The 1st floor spans a usable floor area of 95.7 sqm. Let your imagination do the work and turn this property into your dream home.

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.
