This highly exclusive and luxurious apartment located on the ground floor and first floor of the rear annex of a traditional Amsterdam canal house with a unique sunny garden, which is over 8 meters wide and 15 meters deep, offers you the very best of the city. This apartment combines a lively urban ambiance with the green oasis of one of the most beautiful private gardens in Amsterdam.
The apartment was elegantly renovated in 2010 at the highest quality level. Modern design has been combined aesthetically with the impressive stately period rooms. The two-floor high glass rear facade illuminates the spacious bedrooms, the large open kitchen and stately period rooms. The glass design staircase takes you from the open kitchen into a lovely landscaped garden.
The two period rooms, of which one serves as the library/study (the former 'wig’ room) and the other as a beautiful living room with a parquet floor and an open fireplace, contain many original details and have lovely high ceilings of over 4.7 metres.
At the back of the garden, a marvellous outside loft has been created over the full width of the garden equipped with lighting, heating and drinking water.
Entrance/hall, period room with a ceiling height of approximately 4.70 metres, beautiful ornamental fireplace and fixed ‘monumental cabinets'. Connected to the open kitchen with dazzling natural light shining through the glass rear facade and skylights. Due to the width of 8 meters, this floor has an extremely luxurious and stately feeling. Via the design staircase, you have access to the large and delightful garden. A spacious study/library is located on the patio side where the original 'counter', the 19th century roll top desk and again the high ceilings provide a charming ambiance.
Second entrance, hall, 3 spacious light bedrooms all directly located adjacent to the garden and courtyard. Very large bathroom and pantry. The layout offers the possibility to easily realise a second and third bathroom (see alternative layout.)
Via the pantry, you enter the wine cellar and the spacious arched cellar of 22 m2.
There is a spacious separate storage area and bicycle cellar at the front of the house.
The monumental building is located in one of the most beautiful sections of Amsterdam’s canals, in the middle of “the nine streets” district, near to the Jordaan, the Elandsgracht and the Spui. The most charming restaurants, high-end stores, trendy cafés, cinemas and theatres are all within walking distance whereas the apartment itself offers a very spacious and quiet living environment.
