Bright and tastefully renovated street-level duplex in the sought-after Rivierenbuurt district with a sweeping view of Martin Luther King park on Amstel River. This family home has a private street entrance and a small city garden, and is characterized by its fabulous dimensions, sense of space and excellent floorplan with 4 bedrooms and an expansive dual aspect living room with an open-plan kitchen.
Gross floor area of 131 sqm, 111 sqm NEN usable residential floor area. The ceiling heights for the remaining 20 sqm are slightly too low to qualify as residential floor area, but ensure super spacious bedrooms and are ideal for added wardrobe and storage space.
Amsterdam Zuid's Rivierenbuurt district is widely recognized as a lush and leafy neighborhood with an exceptional charm and sense of space, home to lovely boutiques and coffee bars. In a favorable location relative to De Pijp, Centrum and Zuidas, as well as A2, A10 and public transportation.
The location is set to become even better in years to come... On the opposite side of Amstel River, the city is expanding: with the emergence of Amstel Quarter, a diverse and leafy residential, commercial and recreation area.
Concrete plans are in place to downscale the connection between the A2 highway and Utrechtsebrug around 2025. Consequently, where the A2 is now, there will be room for sports and recreational amenities, significantly reducing through-traffic via Utrechtsebrug into the city: leading to less traffic on Rijnstraat and President Kennedylaan - making the location of this home even better than it already is. And it is a wonderful location, with a wide, sunny sidewalk along a parallel road that sees local traffic only, flanked by a green buffer zone.
Private street entrance to the original hallway on the raised ground-floor level. This hallway opens to the living room with beautiful herringbone parquet flooring. This bright room is exceptionally wide for Amsterdam -ca 4.84 m-, and features a lovely bay window at the front - which allows daylight to flood in - that offers a sweeping view of the park. At the rear is the dining room, with a custom kitchen with ample storage space, stunning bamboo cupboards and a characteristic concrete worktop.
Both levels access the beautifully landscaped, cozy ca. 17 sqm city garden. The main floor also accommodates the spacious first bedroom (ca 2.18 x 4.09 m) and a guest restroom.
The bedroom level was completely remodeled and reconfigured in 2017. There are 2 larger bedrooms to the left, making optimum use of the space above the foundation beams; creating wardrobe space in the master bedroom and a lovely sleeper nook in the children's bedroom. The 4th bedroom (ca 2.08 above the edge x 4.61) currently serves as a study and opens to the garden.
The lovely bathroom features blue and white tiling, black taps and wooden elements, and is fitted with a 2nd toilet, bathtub and shower and pumps for drainage.
The apartment also includes a storage with the laundry station.
