Light and airy apartment on the fourth floor of a beautifully renovated building. The foundation was renewed in 2002. The apartment offers a wonderful living room with a large light dome that brings in lots of natural light. All window frames were replaced and are double-glazed, and there is the option to create a roof terrace.
The active Homeowners’ Association (VvE) is registered under the name “Vereniging van Eigenaren Eerste Helmersstraat 48” and consists of five members. The monthly service charges are €69.30 and the VvE is managed by the owners.
The entrance at street level leads to the communal stairwell.
The apartment is on the top floor, where the landing includes the meter cupboard and offers the option to create a cloak area. The private front door opens to a hallway with doors to the toilet, the bathroom, the bedroom, and access to the living room.
The light, L-shaped living room has a bay window at the front. When opening the windows, you will have a great spot (facing southeast) to enjoy the sun. The open-plan kitchen includes built-in appliances such as a dishwasher (Indesit, 2020), a 4-burner gas stove with a combi-microwave/oven, and an extraction hood. The light dome, the windows at the front, and the two Velux skylights in the bay window make this floor wonderfully light and airy. The bespoke bookcases and the cupboard with the white goods connections and the central heating unit offer additional storage space.
The bedroom lies at the back of the house and includes a bespoke wardrobe plus French doors giving access to the northwest-facing balcony at the back where you can enjoy the late-afternoon sun. The VvE has also already given permission to create a roof terrace.
The entire apartment is finished with beautiful oak parquet flooring.
