This object offers a unique opportunity to buy an entire residential property with loads of options for dividing it into separate apartment rights or combining several spaces and floors and/or extending the usable space. This wonderful townhouse still retains several of its beautiful period features, has broad windows at the front, and offers wonderful views of the historical building of the Amsterdam Freemasons, designed by architect P.J.H. Cuypers in 1873.
This residential property, dating back to 1871, is situated on freehold land and comprises 5 floors. The double downstairs residence has a private entrance from the communal hallway on the ground floor. The floors upstairs offer all kinds of options but do require some necessary updating and modernisation.
The front door leads to the broad communal entrance hall with access to the downstairs residence and the stairwell to the other floors.
From the hallway – with a cloak area, the toilet and the internal staircase to the sleeping quarters – two doors lead to the living room. The dual aspect living has a seating area at the front and still has its splendid, original ceiling. The dining area with a beautiful mantelpiece is at the back and offers access to the lower-positioned garden.
The adjacent L-shaped kitchen features high-gloss white cupboards and drawers, an anthracite worktop, various built-in appliances, and also offers separate access to the garden. The north-facing back garden with a surface area of 45 m2 is partially tiled and includes a patch of artificial grass.
The first floor offers two spacious bedrooms, separated by the formerly typical sliding doors that often separate a front and back room in houses like this. The sliding doors are still there but have been shut. The bedroom at the front is of a very generous size and includes two built-in closets. The room at the back has a broad fitted wardrobe. The spacious bathroom is also positioned at the back and features a bath, a separate shower, a wall-mounted toilet, and a washbasin unit. From the communal hallway downstairs, another staircase leads to the floors upstairs.
This floor also still has the quintessential “en-suite” layout whereby the front and the back room can both be accessed from the landing. The rooms can be separated by sliding doors flanked by built-in cupboards. The room at the front gives access to a small balcony overlooking the old Freemason building. The basic kitchen is accessed via the back room. A door in the kitchen leads on to the bathroom, which has a shower, a toilet, a washbasin and white goods connections.
This floor offers two (bed)rooms, a basic kitchen at the back, and a bathroom with a shower, a toilet, and a washbasin. The room at the back also includes a spacious storage room/walk-in closet with a skylight. A staircase from the landing goes up to the top floor with the charming slanted roof construction. This space offers a good-sized room at the front, with a basic kitchen unit and access to the bathroom featuring a shower, a toilet, and a washbasin. The second room at the back offers plenty of storage space behind the slanting wall. Lastly, the top floor includes a large attic space and a gas burner.
The house offers options to substantially increase the net usable space by creating a full-fledged basement and by adding dormer windows on the roof. Such plans would always be subject to planning permission and permits, at the risk and expense of the buyer.
