Grandeur and sophisticated appeal: an expansive and monumental apartment with a period room and a lovely and sunny city garden. A historic gem in a SUPER PRIME location.
Part of an opulent and expansive canal house with an elegant communal entrance. An entrance that impresses and entices, with tall ceilings, white marble finishes and stunning cornices. A gorgeous property, spanning a total of 155 sqm of usable residential floor space with 5 rooms, encompassing three levels in the rear annex: a part of the garden-level floor, raised ground-floor level and a small guest wing on the first floor.
The building is situated on one of the most sought-after stretches of the canal belt, where the gardens face south and are extra deep, close-by Amstelveld, Utrechtsestraat and Reguliersgracht.
This phenomenal ‘hide away’ includes one of the most beautiful period rooms in all of the canal belt area. A space that is warm and intimate, yet equally grand - ideal for entertaining or home concerts.
The property's grandeur and allure are reflected in its stunning details, ornaments and generous dimensions. The atmosphere of the 18th century can be felt throughout. The house includes a "Sael" (period room) dating back to 1768, which is in original condition, showcasing wall paintings by Jurriaan Andriessen, ceiling frescoes that were added by Johannes Stortenbeker in 1881 and gold-leaf mirrors and consoles. This “Sael” (and both monumental period rooms facing the canal) were thoroughly restored in 1999 by Rescura Blijenberg.
Connecting to and this magnificent room is a south-facing city garden. Designed by prolific landscaping architect Copijn and now a mature, secluded peaceful oasis. Expansive; measuring approximately 22 meters long and 7 meters wide, with 2 ponds and 2 fountains and a heated, stunning steel-structure sunroom.
Connecting to the Sael is a modern and welcoming kitchen/lounge with a large window to the atrium. The garden floor features 2 spacious rooms, an exceptionally elegant bathroom, separate restroom and a kitchenette. The guest wing on the first floor includes a small bathroom with a shower, toilet and sink.
Both the house and the garden are featured in several publications, including the book Grachtentuinen (Canal Gardens) by Arjan Bronckhorst from 2015. Photos have also been made for the project ‘Inventarisatie Decoratieve Interieurschilderingen in Nederland (1600-1940)’ about decorative interior wall and ceiling paintings by the National Cultural Heritage Agency, Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed, in 2002. The canal house is a part of the UNESCO World Heritage list Netherlands.
