This charming one-bedroom apartment of 69 m2 (GFA 78 m2) is part of a gorgeous and listed building and boasts large windows and lots of natural light. The former convent “De Voorzienigheid” now includes a lift, various period features, several secluded communal courtyard gardens and roof terraces, and a bike storage. The property sits on freehold land right in the heart of Amsterdam’s city centre.
The magnificent building features an impressive, broad stairwell and stained-glass windows. The imposing hallways of the listed building run from the Elandsstraat, through the communal gardens, to the Lauriergracht. The perfect layout, the serene atmosphere, and the huge amount of light streaming in through the seven windows are just a few of the apartment’s unique features. The spacious layout also offers the option to create a second bedroom.
The Homeowners’ Association, registered as “VvE De Voorzienigheid VvE Elandsstraat 24-40/Lauriergracht 41-45” is professionally managed. The service charges are €239.92 per month and the VvE has a multi-annual maintenance plan.
The large front door opens onto the stately hall inside the former convent. Here, you can either take the stairwell or the lift to the second floor and the private entrance to the apartment. The communal hallway includes a deep closet and the meter cupboard.
Next to the entrance, the compact hallway and an open doorway lead to the expansive living area with five windows and double doors to a French balcony that overlooks the Elandsstraat. The living area distinguishes three different spaces – the semi-open-plan kitchen, a living room with a bespoke workspace, and a third space at the left used as a sleeping area (which can easily be closed off again). Next to the seating area is a built-in closet with the central heating unit.
The kitchen is functional, with a dark natural stone worktop, white cupboards/drawers, and a built-in fridge and a hob.
White sliding doors give access to the spacious bathroom, which is finished with dark terrazzo flooring combined with a light and colourfully tiled wall. The bathroom offers a bath, a shower cabin, a washbasin, and the white goods connections.
The bedroom is adjacent to the bathroom and includes a floor-to-ceiling fitted wardrobe and a large window.
Back in the communal hall, you can enter the two extensive and wonderfully green courtyard convent gardens that are connected and can be accessed from two sides. The roof terraces boast amazing views of the gardens and the surrounding rooftops of the popular Jordaan neighbourhood.
Downstairs, the apartment right includes a private storage room and residents can use the bike storage facility.
