A unique opportunity to live in the “Nieuwe Suikerhofje" (''New Sugar Courtyard''). This special national monument is like a small historic village dating from 1755. The Suikerhofje was inhabited by Catholic women who shared the houses with each other. The history of this courtyard has been noticeably preserved during the restoration in 2000. The entrance to the courtyard is located on the Prinsengracht.
Wandering through the courtyard you will arrive at the front door on the ground floor of number 391. The courtyard is located in a special location, the tranquillity of the courtyard can be contrasted with the bustle of the 9 Streets, one minute walking distance away. The 9 Streets (9 Straatjes) is a combination of 9 streets where you can find the best coffee/ lunch spots and bars. There are also numerous clothing and home stores here. Furthermore, you are located in the bustling centre of Amsterdam.
This 109 m2 apartment is exceptionally idyllic. From the private entrance is located on the ground floor, through the landing, you will find yourself on the living floor of this apartment. The entire apartment has authentic monumental details such as wall tiles, tile floors, wooden floors, fitted cupboards and original doors. This authenticity strikes you as you enter the apartment. From the landing on the second floor, there is a small toilet and you can enter the partly open kitchen. The kitchen flows into the dining room. The house is incredibly light due to its original windows. The living room is open to the dining room, both having beautiful monumental fireplaces (closed with historic tiles). The built-in cupboards have also been restored. Adjacent to the living room is the reading room, or small library.
The restored stairs lead to the third floor. Also here there is a spacious landing with seating area, two bedrooms, as well as an office (which could be used as a third bedroom). At the heart of this floor is the spacious, luxurious bathroom with bath, toilet, sink, walk-in shower and skylight.
This cottage/apartment is a new experience of living. From the moment you enter the gate on the Prinsengracht and find yourself in the Hofje, you will find yourself in a unique world of the rich history of the Nieuwe Suikerhofje. In 2000, the entire Suikerhofje was restored and the houses were fully equipped. The courtyard has a separate bicycle shed and a common laundry room for the five apartments. This apartment is located on private land and has an active and healthy association of five-member owners.
