Originally designed by architect Van Arkel in 1899, have fortunately been retained many original style features during the large-scale renovation, such as the original panel doors. Costs nor efforts have been spared to realise this home. For example, all sanitary rooms and the kitchen were equipped with luxury materials, a professional lighting system was used and all materials and colours are matched perfectly. There are two luxury gas fireplaces in the living rooms on the bel-etage ground floor and a third gas fire on the first floor in the study. The ground and first floor have an oak Hungarian point floor. The basement floor, with kitchen and flat, has a cast floor. This house (municipal monument) offers a substantial contribution to the Amsterdam Art-Nouveau architecture, through its special details in the front facade, balcony on the street side and the present bay windows. The communal exterior entrance is framed by a sandstone arch containing the name "Johanna", named after Mrs Johanna Messschaert, one of the first residents.
You enter the house via a spacious front garden on the street side, stone pavement and private entrance to the residence on the ground floor.

French doors lead to a spacious south-facing terrace. This terrace is also connected to the garden via a steel staircase. At the streetside of the ground floor a separate studio has been created, perfectly suitable as a guesthouse, au-pair room, bedroom, home practice, etc. This studio is approximately 41m2 and has its own luxury kitchen, own heating, bathroom and can use the entrance on the side of the house.

LETíS GO OUTSIDE
Enjoyment in the fullest sense of the word; the front garden is used sporadically as a parking place for the car and regularly for the bicycles. There is a charging station for electric car charging, but there is no permit for use as such.
Through an alley and steel gate, the back garden is accessed from the outside. Here one enters an oasis of green, and one forgets that you are living in the heart of Amsterdam. The wide garden is laid out under architecture, with a maintenance-free character and various seating areas. Because the sun has free reign on account of the southern location of the garden, there is always a place to enjoy the warmth, but one can also enjoy shelter in the concealed area adjacent to the kitchen.
Then there is the beautiful annex, fully equipped with kitchen, bathroom, own CV and storage space for garden equipment and bicycles. The sliding doors that can be opened over the full width make the outbuilding a beautiful outdoor garden kitchen. This building completes the garden with its sedum roof and makes an ideal connection with the living area.

GOOD TO KNOW
This dream house is actually ready to move into. The whole property is equipped with completely new electrics, water pipes, sewerage, security and camera surveillance. Soundproofing material has been applied between the floors and insulating material has been applied to the outside walls as far as possible.
The whole property has underfloor heating under a beautiful oak parquet floor. The building is located on private land, so no leasehold. Recently, a basement construction has taken place, the gutters have been renewed, the exterior paintwork has been done and the exterior walls have been restored and the front and back gardens have been landscaped. This means that for the next few years no maintenance is expected and everything is in very good condition.
Actually, the location needs no further explanation. Vondelstraat speaks to everyone's imagination and is undoubtedly one of the most popular residential locations in Amsterdam. How quiet and green the street itself, the chic architecture and thus the wealthy residences it contains, does not suggest that there is so much liveliness just down the road. Numerous shops and eateries, both tremendously diverse in their type and composition, are located within walking distance. With excellent public transport connections and good access to the outside world via the nearby Overtoom.
