MODERN AND LIGHT DOUBLE UPSTAIRS APARTMENT OF 115 M2 (GFA 129 M2), RENOVATED TO A VERY HIGH STANDARD, INCLUDING NEW FOUNDATION. THIS ELEGANT APARTMENT IS SITUATED ON FREEHOLD LAND AND IS PART OF A LISTED BUILDING. THE UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS OF THE CANAL AND THE GREEN AREA BEYOND ARE SIMPLY SPECTACULAR.
The property has been entirely renovated to a very high standard and under architectural design. The large windows at the front and back, the great eye for detail, the elegant finish, and the rather clever choices made during the renovation works have resulted in a unique property in a unique location. This magnificent upstairs apartment also includes double/triple glazing, beautiful oak parquet flooring (partly with underfloor heating), LED integrated lighting, and electrically operated Velux skylights with blackout blinds and rain sensors. The spacious dual-aspect living room with the cosy fireplace, the luxury kitchen-diner, the three generously sized bedrooms, and the two modern and elegantly furnished bathrooms with underfloor heating make this apartment quite spectacular.
The Homeowners’ Association (VvE) is registered as “Nieuwe Prinsengracht 82” and consists of 4 members. The VvE is managed by the owners and the service charges are €150 per month. The façade and the roofing were renovated and replaced in 2018. The communal stairwell was renovated in 2019.
The communal entrance on the ground floor and the stairwell lead to the private entrance of the upstairs apartment. The good-sized hallway, with a toilet and built-in closet, leads to the staircase to the upper floor and the beautiful glass-in-steel doors to the very spacious living quarters.
The sitting room is at the front and features a design gas-fuelled fireplace, a curtain coving, and offers unobstructed views of both the canal and the courtyard gardens of the Sarphatihuis across the canal. The specially designed bookcases in the corner are a wonderful eye-catcher. The large downlights and Modular wall lighting (all dimmable) create a trendy yet comfortable atmosphere at night. The large kitchen-diner lies at the back and features high-gloss white cupboards and drawers and a light grey natural stone worktop. The kitchen also includes black wall cabinets, a black sink, and high-end built-in appliances (Siemens), such as a large fridge, a broad stove, and a black Quooker tap. The back façade includes floor-to-ceiling windows and double doors leading to the French balcony overlooking the courtyard gardens. This floor is finished with insulating oak parquet flooring with underfloor heating.
The modern staircase in the hallway – with integrated lighting and a black steel banister – leads to the bedrooms upstairs. The landing gives access to the three bedrooms, the second toilet, and the (guest) bathroom. The large master bedroom suite, with a wonderfully high ceiling, is at the front and features floor-to-ceiling built-in wardrobes, an integrated desk, dimmable LED downlights, reading lights with a hotel switch, and automated Velux Integra skylights with rain sensors and electrically operated blackout blinds. The large window seat overlooking the canal is certainly one of the most charming details. The generously sized en-suite bathroom is accessed via a glass-in-steel door. This modern bathroom is finished in a cool, natural colour scheme and features underfloor heating, a walk-in shower plus rainshower head, a large bath, a sleek, double washbasin unit, robust and integrated taps, a heated mirror, and dimmable LED lighting.
The second bedroom has a centre position on this floor and is currently used as a children's room. This room would also be perfect as a study or guest room, and the two automated skylights with rain sensors and electrically operated blinds (blackout blinds as well as light-dimming blinds) let in lots of natural light. Adjacent to this room is the second bathroom, which is also finished in a natural colour scheme, featuring a walk-in shower, a washbasin, and underfloor heating. The third and generously bedroom is at the back and also includes a large built-in wardrobe and dimmable LED lighting. The spacious landing/hallway includes a broad wooden worktop with, underneath, a new washing machine, a dryer, and a freezer (all included in the asking price). In short, this is a unique, turn-key apartment that will have you move in straight away.
The icing on the cake is the roof terrace (built with permission of the Homeowners’ Association, but without an official building permit), which is accessed via another staircase from the fourth floor.
The apartment is fully insulated and all windows are double/triple glazed, resulting in a definitive energy label A.
