** Unique ground-level duplex in Jordaan Quarter with an unparalleled combination of space, light, charm and outdoor space **

Extraordinary, sunny 207 sqm home with 4 BEDROOMS, 2 WORK SPACES and a nearly 40 sqm SUN TERRACE off the family kitchen, in a fabulous location on a quiet and leafy side street of BROUWERSGRACHT, nearby Westerstraat, Lindengracht and Haarlemmerdijk.

This bright home has an unconventional layout, encompassing the ground floor and 1st floor, windows to 5 sides, a spectacular living room in a former artist's studio and a work space/office with French doors that open to the street.

This listed national monument (Rijksmonument) dating back to 1641 has a new foundation and is in excellent condition.

Due to its L-shape, the property can be accessed from both Baanbrugsteeg 3 and Vinkenstraat 161, where it is a part of a charming row of monumental buildings. A lovely, quiet location in Jordaan Quarter, between bustling Haarlemmerdijk and breathtaking Brouwersgracht canal, close to Noordermarkt and Westerpark.

The living room is on the ground floor and spans nearly 60sqm with a large glass facade that overlook's Amsterdam's greenest alley. This room features two large skylights in the 3-meter tall beamed ceiling, beautiful stone floors with underfloor heating and a gas fireplace by the sitting area. The wall next to the dining area is covered in contemporary Corten steel. The family kitchen is situated directly above the living room and features French doors to the terrace.

This welcoming family kitchen has windows to three sides, beautiful oak flooring and a custom made kitchen with a chef's island and terrazzo countertops. The kitchen is equipped with a range of appliances, including a combi Quooker, a Falcon stove with 2 ovens and a grill, dishwasher and combination microwave oven. There are 6 PV solar panels on the roof.

Because the connecting 40sqm terrace is easily accessible, it is used often. The secluded terrace faces south and features a full oak enclosure and an enormous lounge bench. This is the ideal spot to lunch or have dinner in the sun. French doors from the master bedroom also open to the terrace.

Off the living room on the ground floor is a large entrance, measuring ca. 3m x 9m. This entrance hall is accessible from Vinkenstraat and connects the different sections of the house. Its fabulous daylight entry, dimensions and ca 3.25m ceilings make this a wonderful gateway to the rest of the home. The space is also fitted with a large closet wall with a coat area.

Beautiful stairs lead from the hall to the 4 rooms on the first floor of the main house. Both street-facing bedrooms have beautiful casement windows; the 2 rooms at the rear are used as the master bedroom and a 2nd work space. Both rooms have a view of the roof deck and the master bedroom opens to the terrace. The central bathroom is equipped with a bathtub, toilet and vanity.

The central hall leads to a raised room, which is a lovely, bright bedroom with a private connecting bathroom with a shower and a separate restroom. This inviting room is fitted with underfloor heating and has a view of the terrace, and also includes a play area/ walk-in closet.

The ca 3m x 4.70m street-level work space at the front is also off the large entrance hall. This room showcases a 3.80m ceiling and storage space on the mezzanine. French doors that open to the street also make this room suitable for parking bicycles, or even a motorcycle.

Amsterdam is the largest Dutch city, the capital of the Netherlands, and the nation's financial, business, cultural and commercial capital as well. Since its founding in the 12th century, Amsterdam has evolved from a small fishing village into one of the most important ports in the world during the Dutch Golden Age. Museums like the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh and the Stedelijk also give Amsterdam serious cultural credibility. Amsterdam's compact size, cycling lifestyle, diverse population (more than 170 nationalities), English-speaking natives, abundance of green space, reliable public transportation system and central location within Europe mean it's not only a great place to visit, but also a great place to live.
