DEVELOPMENT PROJECT IN QUIET RESIDENTIAL AREA
At the end of a picturesque side street of the Westzijde in Zaandam lies on the corner of the Langestraat/Valkstraat this historic 3-storey building with residential / retail destination. This is offered as a development project, not for own occupancy. On the first floor, the lease for 2 rooms will remain in force for the time being. Registrations must be submitted to the project notary by July 2.
Much has changed in 120 years, of course, but the original street scene here is virtually unchanged. Due to its central location and good facilities, the quiet residential area is now particularly popular with young families. This characteristic corner building was once home to a butcher's shop, with the typical flattened entrance to the original store space. On the outside, many authentic details have been preserved, such as the various facade elements, arched windows and the playful shapes. In the retail space, the original white tiles from the butcher's shop immediately catch the eye. The adjacent smokehouse is also a reminder of these times. In recent years it was used as a shed, with its own wide entrance.
The layout of the property offers many possibilities for the perceptive developer. In addition to the 2 entrances for the original retail space and shed, the existing tenants on the first floor have their own entrance via the back entrance in the garden. In addition, there are 2 entrances that lead directly to the floors, both on Langestraat and Valkstraat. In the past, 3 families lived in the building, each with their own part, and the butcher's shop with warehouse was on the first floor.
The Langestraat is located near the center and is therefore easily accessible. Schools and shopping facilities can be reached in minutes by bicycle and on foot. The train station is 750 meters away, the bus stop is even closer. The ramp to the A8 motorway is 3 minutes away. On the south side the city is connected to Amsterdam-Noord; the other quarters are benignly green and unspoiled. Lover of water? Zaandam is located exactly between the North Sea beach and the IJsselmeer.
The layout and decor are at various times adapted to the reigning stylistic opinion. Those who think away the zeitgeist will be pleased that the main lines of the property, surprising corners, the high rooms and the light from the many characteristic windows immediately evoke an enthusiastic feeling of 'new possibilities'. The property needs love, but will give it back in abundance to its future occupants.
First floor (124.5 m2)
The retail space and warehouse both have their own entrance. Through the garden, the other residents enter the extension with utility room, bathroom (shower and toilet) and corridor, which opens into the kitchen. The main corridor leads to the large living room and 2 bedrooms. The living and accommodation areas are now mainly used by the tenants.
Second floor (113.4 m2)
The second floor is divided into two parts, one of which is accessible through the entrance on Valkstraat and the other through the entrance on Langestraat. On the Langestraat side you enter the building on the landing. From the landing is both the living room, a bedroom and the neat kitchen. From the neat kitchen is a bathroom, with sink, shower and toilet.
On the side of the Valkstraat you enter from the landing in the living room, this living room has a bathroom (shower / toilet) and sink.
Both sides have lots of daylight from the original arched windows.
Second floor (107.5 m2)
The second floor is also divided into two parts. On the side of the Langestraat there is a spacious landing surrounded by 3 bedrooms with authentic details. An open wooden staircase on the landing leads to the roof. Previously this staircase gave access to the roof terrace, but after the renewal of the roof the roof terrace was removed. It is expected that this can be brought back.
From the side of the Valkstraat there is a spacious landing on the second floor with two bedrooms and a storage room.
Due to the partially sloping roof and skylights, a lot of space remains unused, with a somewhat lofty layout, although the visible construction beams do contribute to the atmosphere. All rooms have central heating.
Garden (11,1 m2)
The outside area is accessible from a side entrance, which is used as an entrance for the (room) tenants on the first floor.
