Special characteristic 2-layer apartment, renovated at a high quality level, of approx. 153 m² in a beautiful national monumental canal building at the Herengracht!

This special apartment is located on the main floor and basement of a National Monumental canal building in the area of the “Negen Straatjes”.

This house is characterised by the many original details which have been preserved. The utmost care has been taken to preserve the original style elements during the renovation. Especially in the monumental period room at the front side of the house. On the other hand, the kitchen is modern and state of the art.

The building is located at the Herengracht, in the area of the “Negen Straatjes”, one of the most popular residential neighbourhoods of Amsterdam. More or less right behind the Royal Palace of Amsterdam. In addition, Leidseplein and the Jordaan are at walking distance. The public transport amenities are excellent; tram 1, 2, 5, 13, 14 and 17 stop at Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal, behind the Palace and Centraal Station is at 5 minutes cycling distance.

Main floor: entrance through the communal marble staircase of the canal building. The front door is at the main floor. You enter in the multi functional room at the front side of the building. This is a beautiful period room with a lavish amount of original details. For example, you can see woodcarvings everywhere. The hearth, china cabinet, panelling and architraves are all decorated with woodcarvings. The ornamental ceiling is hand-painted and there is a massive wooden floor with herringbone pattern. The ceiling and panelling are monumental. The period room provides a beautiful view on the Herengracht. This room would be perfect for either residential or commercial purposes.

You have access to the living area at the back of the house by means of French doors. Here you will find the custom original Sense kitchen, which features all kinds of built-in appliances of Siemens. For example, there is an induction cooker with multiple zones. The exhaust system is part of the cooker. Furthermore, there is also a Quooker, oven, steam oven, combination microwave and dishwasher and there is more than enough storage space.
You can dine at the bar area of the kitchen or at the large dining table. There is a patio (approx. 18 m²) at the back of the kitchen, which you could also use to have dinner outside.

Furthermore, there is also a bathroom and a separate toilet on the main floor. The bathroom comes with a bathtub with whirlpool function, walk-in shower and double washstand. This is also tastefully finished with large tiles.

The enormous bedroom is located in the basement. This area exudes atmosphere. The original floor beams are still visible and the former ‘kespen’ (foundational beams) in the brick wall are also still present. Closet space is also considered and a built-in closet has been realised of in total approx. 5 metres in length. A baby room, sports area or, for example, office could be realised. In addition, the basement features its own access door. This would also make it possible to go onto the street directly from here. The height of the basement varies from 1.85 m to 2.00 m height.

In accordance with the impression of the architect, it is possible to create two bedrooms and a large walk-in closet in the basement. The measurement of the basement can be found in the impression.

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.
