In the very popular “Koninginnebuurt” (Queens District), on the edge of the historic center of Haarlem, this spacious and well-maintained apartment is situated. It is spread over the 2nd and 3rd floor of a corner-mansion. At the 4th floor there is an additional extended attic. Both inside and out, the place is renovated and modernized, while retaining original details such as ornamental ceilings, panel doors and original fireplaces. All windows are replaced with double glass and the cavity walls are isolated. The entire apartment has a solid wooden floor, planed and high-gloss white lacquered. For starters at the housing market it becomes possible to live in this most wanted neighborhood.
The house is characterized by the light and spacious dimensions. With the 3.15m! high ceilings and large windows facing south, the living room with semi-open kitchen (50 m2) is a wonderful place to stay. The kitchen was renovated in 2016 and is fully equipped.
In the living room, the fireplace has been restored. In winter this provides comfort and cosines. Two large French doors in the living room give access to the renovated and child-friendly (vertical bars) balcony. Here you can relax and look out over the inner gardens of the Tempeliersstraat and Lakenkopersstraat. On this
floor you will also find a toilet, a built-in wardrobe and a functional office with built-in library cupboards.
The entire third floor is light and exudes a cozy atmosphere. The original beams under the roof boarding are visible and beautifully finished. There are four rooms, one of which is currently used as a laundry room. From both the landing and the main bedroom you enter the bathroom with bath, separate shower, double sink and toilet. The plastic roof dome can be opened and provides daylight and fresh air.
Via a fixed staircase you reach the attic and the attic room under the tiled roof. This has been expanded into a beautiful bedroom with a dormer. The window offers a view over the roofs of the city and in the distance the tower of the large church on the Grote Markt is visible.
