CHARMING AND PLAYFULLY LAID-OUT DOUBLE GROUND-FLOOR APARTMENT OF 127 M2 (GFA 144 M2) WITH A PLEASANT, SOUTH-FACING GARDEN, A COMFORTABLE KITCHEN-DINER, A SPACIOUS AND MODERN BATHROOM, AND THREE GENEROUS BEDROOMS. THE PROPERTY IS SITUATED ON FREEHOLD LAND IN THE BEAUTIFUL AND POPULAR MUSEUM QUARTER.
This unique apartment is situated on freehold land, in a former shop/residence dating back to 1906. In 2007, the basement was converted to create a proper living area. The sanitary rooms on the ground floor were also fully renovated in 2007. The split-level layout of this residence, with all spaces radiating with their unique charm, is what makes this apartment so special. The south-facing garden of approx. 42 m2 is the icing on the cake.
The Home Owners’ Association (VvE), registered under the name ‘Ruysdaelstraat 99’, has four members and meets at least once a year. The service charges are €153 per month. The VvE has sufficient funds to allow for the outside paintwork to be planned for next year.
You enter the apartment via the door between two tall windows across. A colourful awning adorns the entire width of the house. The first room, directly behind the front door, would be perfect as a study/office or a sitting room. A few steps lead up to the living quarters.
The hall gives access to all other spaces and to the staircase that goes down to the basement.
The living room feels wonderfully intimate and comfortable and still has several period features such as a beautiful mantelpiece and ornamental ceiling. French doors at the back lead to a cosy veranda with steel stairs going down to the sunny garden. The long south-facing garden has a surface area of approx. 42 m2 and is largely pebbled with a small border with plants at the left.
The master bedroom lies at the front and includes a walk-in closet and the meter cupboard.
The modern bathroom has been finished with anthracite tiling and has a large window. The bathroom features an oval-shaped bath, a walk-in shower, a washbasin unit, and a design radiator. The newly installed heating system is cleverly tucked away in a bespoke wall cupboard. The separate toilet is accessed from the hall.
Wooden stairs bring you to the basement, which is fully tiled in a rustic earthy tone. The stunning and cosy kitchen-diner (Boretti) has white cupboards and drawers with broad stainless steel handles and a broad worktop with a wood pattern. The kitchen also includes several built-in appliances, an American-style fridge/freezer, and a DOK stove.
An open hallway from the kitchen leads to the second spacious bedroom at the back of the house. This floor also has a third room at the front, which is currently used as a study and which gives access to the built-in laundry room. Apart from white goods connections, this room also includes a second toilet and a bidet.
The available alternative floor plans show that there are several options to create another layout.
