Stylish, beautifully maintained monumental family residence with an iconic frontage, front and back gardens, located in a wide, quiet, leafy street.
This monumental luxury town house is approx. 7 metres wide, has 251 m² of floor space and is located in a child-friendly part of the lovely district of Amsterdam Zuid. The layout of the property is perfect, creating a spacious feel with high ceilings and original details, such as ornamental mouldings, classical radiators and Berker Art Deco switching material.
The property boasts six bedrooms (two of which are currently in use as offices), one luxury bathroom and a separate utility room with a walk-in shower. There is also a good-sized cellar. The wide staircase has a skylight, which creates a beautiful play of light. And as if this weren’t enough, the property has two large balconies/terraces at the rear and another balcony at the front looking out onto beautiful Hacquartstraat.
The front garden takes you to the front door. You enter an elegant anteroom with marble panelling, a cloakroom and a toilet. The main hall with its classical staircase forms the heart of this house. It also provides access to the cellar, which would serve as a wine cellar or storeroom. At the front of this town house, you will find a light and airy dining room. Original dividing doors lead through to the fabulous living room, which looks onto the garden and offers plenty of privacy. The high ceilings are accentuated by the tasteful vertically patterned wallpaper. Partly thanks to the vast expanse of wooden flooring, the entire ground floor oozes space.
The Piet Boon designer kitchen is practical with plenty of storage space, has various fitted appliances and a 6-ring professional Viking gas stove with a wide extractor hood. Quality is the key word here: from the solid oak kitchen cupboards, to the terrazzo floor and stone countertops. The kitchen also has a door leading to the large, neat back garden, which catches the sun practically all day.
The landing on the first floor leads to three bedrooms. The huge master bedroom has a walk-in-closet and a balcony. In the middle of this floor is a luxury bathroom with a terrazzo floor, large bath, double basins and a walk-in shower, all fitted with Volevatch taps. There is a separate toilet on the landing. Two further bedrooms are situated at the rear of the property, one of which provides access to the spacious sun terrace.
The second floor houses two offices, one of which is very spacious and offers panoramic views (and would be suitable as a bedroom), and a practical utility room with stainless steel countertops, a terrazzo floor, walk-in shower and separate toilet. And last but not least, there is another sizeable bedroom at the rear, also with a wide, deep sun terrace.
This is the perfect location: a quiet street with wide pavements, parking usually available right outside your door, and the trendy Cornelis Schuytstraat and Jacob Obrechtstraat, with a weekly farmers’ market, within walking distance. Both of these shopping streets are renowned for their diverse range of boutiques, traiteurs and speciality shops. Vondelpark, The Concertgebouw, Paradiso, Museumplein square, P.C. Hooftstraat and Van Baerlestraat, with all the restaurants you could possibly want, are just around the corner. Several good primary and secondary schools are a short walk away.
You’ll find good tram and bus connections on De Lairessestraat, and Zuid-WTC Station is within walking/biking distance.
