ONLY THE BENEFITS AND NOT THE BURDEN OF A LARGE GARDEN? THIS PARTICULARLY BRIGHT GROUND FLOOR APARTMENT OF 128 M2 (GFA 138 M2) IS LOCATED ON THE RUBENSSTRAAT ON THE CORNER WITH THE ANTHONIE VAN DIJCKSTRAAT. THE CORNER LOCATION TO THE WEST AND THE LARGE WINDOWS PROVIDE SPECIAL LIGHT. THIS CONTRIBUTES TO A GOOD ATMOSPHERE IN THE HOUSE.
This corner apartment, finished to a very high standard and situated on the ground floor of the “Rubensstaete” complex, is characterised by its opulent entrance hall and generously sized rooms spread across the larger part of the ground floor of the building. In 2011, all regular windows were replaced with HR++ (impact-resistant) glazing and the stained glass windows have secondary glazing.
The Home Owners’ Association (VvE) consists of 4 members and is professionally managed. The VvE meets at least once a year and the association is registered with the Chamber of Commerce. The VvE provides for the building insurance and the service charges are €184.10 per month.
The house is situated on the ground floor of a building that dates back to 1932, built on leasehold land. The ground lease has been bought off to 15 October 2055.
Entrance with a vestibule finished in marble that leads on into the spacious hall from where all the other rooms are accessed. The hall also includes a storage cupboard and a separate wardrobe.
The spaciously laid-out kitchen has a stone grey/taupe colour scheme and includes a 5-burner gas stove (Atag) with an oven, a built-in dishwasher, and underfloor heating. The white goods connections and the central heating/boiler system are tucked away in a large built-in closet.
The kitchen gives access to the southeast-facing garden, which is narrow at the side of the kitchen but widens to the back where you will have enough space for a dining table seating 4.
The spacious living room with the built-in sliding doors to the dining room is at the front of the house. Both rooms feature an original marble mantelpiece and large windows that let in lots of natural light. The additional stained glass windows create a very elegant atmosphere. The sitting room also features a gas-fuelled fireplace, installed in 2017.
Both bedrooms have wonderfully high ceilings and large windows (HR++ impact-resistant glazing) and additional stained glass windows. The bathroom, refurbished in 2012, has a black and white colour scheme and offers a separate bath, double washbasin mounted natural stone, a design radiator, and a large walk-in (rain) shower. The toilet is separate from the bathroom.
All the rooms feature splendid oak herringbone parquet flooring, except for the kitchen, which has large, beige floor tiles and underfloor heating
Last but not least, the house has a so-called “façade border” at the front and side of the building where one can add some planting and place a garden bench to enjoy the sunshine.
