A fabulous light apartment measuring 75 m2 in the attractive 'Saint Louis' listed building. The premises served as a school building until the mid nineteen eighties, after which it was divided into 12 apartments. The property is located on the first floor and is characterised by three high and wide windows looking out over the canal. The broad windowsills in the casement windows are the perfect place to sit and enjoy the afternoon and evening sun and a magnificent view of the Keizersgracht canal.
The building is in one of the most desirable locations of the western canal ring, at the start of the Keizersgracht in the quiet section between the Herenstraat and Brouwersgracht. The traditional 'Jordaan' neighbourhood is literally 'round the corner'. The building is close to all kinds of facilities such as shops, coffee houses, restaurants and charming specialist stores and you can also visit the lively Noordermarkt and Lindengrachtmarkt markets on Saturdays. Plenty of cultural activities take place in the neighbourhood and that makes it a truly prime location in the centre of Amsterdam. Everything is within walking distance and, after a wonderful day in the city, you can simply walk back to your fantastic apartment.
Public transport in the form of numerous trams and buses depart from the Nieuwezijds Kolk (a 5 minute walk away). The Dam square and the central station are a 10 minute walk away and the Keizersgracht can be easily reached by car via the IJtunnel and the Piet Heintunnel.
The property is professionally managed by a financially healthy and active homeowner association with sufficient reserves and a long-term maintenance schedule is in place. The apartment is located on its own private land.
The apartment is on the first floor and is accessed via a stately, spacious, marble-clad hallway and a beautiful wide staircase.
As you enter the apartment you will see a hallway, a separate toilet with handbasin, a built-in cupboard with storage space, a high-efficiency boiler and a washing machine connection. The luxury kitchen is spacious, semi-open plan and fitted with a variety of built-in appliances. There is an equally generous living room with a fireplace which offers extensive views across the canal. The bedroom is at the front with access to the spacious bathroom, featuring a bathtub and wide vanity unit. Lacquered parquet flooring has been laid throughout almost the entire apartment.
In the basement there is a spacious store room with storage racks, as well as space to store a bicycle in the communal area.
The property's high windows mean it is flooded with light. Although the apartment already has excellent ceiling heights, it is possible to increase these by almost 1 metre (!) to approximately 3.60m. The illustrations give you a good idea of what this would look like.
