For sale: One of the most attractive apartments in Leiden, situated on the Witte Singel
A unique opportunity has arisen at present to acquire one of the largest apartments in the newly completed construction project ‘De Sterrewacht’ (year of construction 2017), namely the ground floor apartment with a living area of 164 m2, a large garden of no less than 110 m2, 2 parking places in the underground carpark... A splendid ground floor apartment equipped with all conveniences. Right in the centre, with the shops and the sights of the city within walking distance, and yet offering plenty of peace and quiet, and privacy.
Here you can live in one of the most sought-after locations in Leiden; with a view over the water of the Witte Singel and next to the oldest Observatory in the world. The high quality appearance and richly detailed architecture of this building mean that it is perfectly in keeping with the existing environment. As if it has always been so, but then marvellously new and comfortable.
‘De Keysertoren’, with 14 luxury apartments, refers to the biology faculty that stood here previously. Constellations and planets are incorporated subtly in the facades of the building. Beneath the city dwellings there is a garage, where two parking spaces belong to this apartment. A large private storage bay is also to be found here and a communal bicycle parking area. This apartment can also be accessed from the garage. Safe, dry and convenient.
The green strip between your terrace and the water forms part of the now highly successful ‘Singelpark’; a beautiful walking route around the historic centre of Leiden, passing along Leiden's parks and waterways. Because the terraced garden is at a higher level than the park, you can enjoy a splendid view whilst benefiting from complete privacy indoors. In addition, this part of the Singelpark is closed at night with a gate.
Entrance, spacious hall with toilet and wardrobe. (Guest) bedroom with private bathroom equipped with shower and washbasin. Indoor storage room equipped for washing machine and dryer.
The glass door gives access to a beautiful, light living and dining room/kitchen measuring ca. 80 m2. Two sets of patio doors open out from this area onto the first lower-level terrace.
The living area includes the modern open kitchen, fully equipped with apparatus, and with an adjoining utility room. There is sufficient room for a long dining table between the kitchen and the spacious, light living room area. A small landing with a study leads to the owners' sleeping accommodation, with a walk-in wardrobe, a large bedroom and a luxury en-suite bathroom equipped with bath, walk-in shower, toilet and double washbasin.
The terrace comprises two parts: firstly the slightly lower terrace directly adjoining the apartment. A unique feature of this terrace is that it forms the second entrance to the apartment. At street level, with plenty of protection and privacy.
Via a few steps you access the large, smart terrace garden overlooking the Witte Singel and the Singelpark.
All in all a spacious, modern and beautiful apartment in a top location in Leiden, definitely worth your viewing.
