A unique loft apartment of 155 m², spatially divided, and with a depth of 30 meters. Situated in the beautiful Plantagebuurt on a car-free road with a view of the water of the Entrepotdok and Artis zoo. Optionally, a private parking space in the closed parking garage is for sale.
The apartment is located on the first floor in a beautiful historic warehouse, originally built in 1840. In 2001, the building was renovated by the renowned architects Claus & Kaan with a lot of craftsmanship and an eye for detail into the exclusive apartment complex "De Calendarpanden". It is not without reason that the historic building has been given the status of a national monument.
The seller has lived in this timeless and unique loft since 2014 and has lived in the apartment with love and respect all this time. You can see and feel this immediately in the state of maintenance and the atmospheric ambiance upon entry. The eye-catchers in the apartment are the beautiful beamed ceiling, which subtly reflects the history of the warehouse, and the beautiful glass sliding doors with industrial suspension. Perhaps the most special is the view of a wooded hill of Artis where the Algazelles graze daily. In the summer, people swim in the canal in front of the building.
Truly a beautiful residential property in a fantastic residential environment. For the connoisseur of a contemporary, elegant and sturdy living concept.
A piece of history:
The Calendar buildings were built as part of the Amsterdam Entrepotdok. The current Entrepotdok used to be called Rapenburgergracht. Where warehouses now stand, there used to be a walking park created by Napoleon. The Entrepotdok was constructed for the interim storage of goods that were not destined for Amsterdam, but were in transit, and on which no import fee had to be paid.
The location and surroundings:
The house is located in the Plantagebuurt, according to experts one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Amsterdam. This neighborhood between the lively East and the Center is known for its authentic atmosphere in a green and water-rich environment.
All the conveniences of the city are within easy reach. Around the corner you will find the Albert Heijn and within walking distance of numerous cultural facilities, catering establishments and hotspots, such as restaurant Entrepot, Molen De Gooyer, Bierbrouwerij 't IJ, Artis, Hortus Botanicus, the Hermitage, the former Marineterrein, Nemo, the Tropenmuseum , Kriterion and Carrι. The cozy Dappermarkt offers daily fresh products. The nearby Oosterpark and Wertheimpark, including tennis court, offer public space for relaxation.
By bike you are within a few minutes on the Waterlooplein and the center of Amsterdam is within reach. Tram lines 7, 9, 10 and 14 stop around the corner, Muiderpoort station and Central Station are a short cycling distance. By car you can reach the A-10 ring road via the Piet Hein tunnel within a few minutes.
In short: a great place, in the middle of the bustle of the city and at the same time sublime living in peace and privacy.
The warehouses 'January to December' consisting of four storeys, cellars and roofs were built in 1838-184 by city architect C.W.M. Klijn. Various architectural designs are known by him, including some buildings for Natura Artis Magistra. Part of the original warehouses have been removed at the rear and where those parts used to be, a closed and communal courtyard garden has been laid out under architecture, beautifully executed with fixed outdoor benches and planters in Corten steel. Within the VVE a number of members are actively working on the garden and that is clearly visible in how beautiful it looks in the inner garden.
