Spectacular and spacious Family Home in the Heart of Amsterdam
The outstanding characteristics that give this house its charm are competing for attention: which one is to be presented first. It is spacious, it has five bedrooms and two bathrooms, it is fully renovated and It's located at the peaceful Lijnbaansgracht. The house combines an industrial style with a warm and intimate atmosphere. The vibrant and historical neighbourhood in which it is located, is another asset.
In short: an unique residence in the Jordaan, with lots of possibilities.
We offer a spacious -207 square meter – apartment on the corner of the Gieterstraat and the Lijnbaansgracht. The apartment is part of an old foundry which at the time moulded the bells of the famous Westertoren. This apartment is in the renovated offices of the former foundry, named ‘Het Gietershof’.
From the common staircase you enter the house, located on the first floor. The apartment is very ingeniously arranged, as it were built in a U-shape: all living areas and bedrooms are facing the street sides, while the bathrooms, toilets and storage spaces are Incorporated on the inside of the U-shape.
After the entrance with a wardrobe, you find at the right the spacious living room of Xm2 with large windows to the floor. There are French balconies with a view of the quiet and lush Lijnbaansgracht. In this space with high ceiling is an open, custom-made kitchen with a kitchen island that also serves as a bar. In the living room there is one of the two cast-iron pillars. The double brick walls have a thin varnish layer. Well-designed light spot are all over the ceiling. The house has a solid French oak-wooden floor.
Along the kitchen on the right is a corridor with endless storage space, hidden behind antique Louvre doors. The technical room comprises a central heating boiler and an air purification system, which ensures continuous fresh air. At the end of the corridor is the master bedroom overlooking the peaceful inner garden. The separate bathroom is nicely designed with a rain shower, a free standing bathtub, a sink and -again- plenty of storage.
The other part of the apartment is found on the left of the entrance facing the Gieterstraat. The remaining four bedrooms surround a ‘chill-area’, a toilet and a bathroom. Thanks to this layout, much privacy has been created for all residents. One of the bedrooms has the luxury of a roof terrace on top of an extension in the inner garden.
An isolated stone cast floor underneath the woodwork.
The windows consist of thermic double glass.
The house contains many outlets.
The Owners Association counts 37 members and is an animated body.
The exterior of the complex is well maintained.
The communal inner garden is stylishly laid out.
A small boat docked in front of the house, and can be taken over if appreciated.
