SPACIOUS AND LIGHT UPSTAIRS APARTMENT (ON THREE FLOORS) OF 217 M2 (GFA 276 M2), OFFERING A VERY LARGE LIVING ROOM WITH A FIREPLACE, A KITCHEN-DINER, FOUR/FIVE BEDROOMS, TWO BATHROOMS, AND A SUNNY ROOF TERRACE OF 28 M2. PART OF A BEAUTIFUL MUNICIPAL LISTED BUILDING IN A QUIET STREET IN AMSTERDAM OUD-ZUID.
This large upstairs apartment is part of a municipal listed building in the Amsterdamse School architectural style, designed by architect F.A. Warners. The splendid private portico staircase, a signature feature of the residence, leads to the 1st floor and the front door to this apartment; the apartment takes up the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floor of the building. The apartment is well-maintained as maintenance and the outside paintwork are done periodically as scheduled in the multiyear maintenance plan. The windows overlooking the roof terrace were replaced in 2020 (double glazing).
The apartment lies on leasehold land and the ground lease has been bought off to 31 December 2051. The application for buying off the ground lease into perpetuity, under the favourable conditions, was filed in 2019.
The Home Owners’ Association (VvE) consists of 2 apartment rights and is managed by the owners. The service charges are €225 per month.
The stone staircase, which is a real eye-catcher, brings you to the 1st floor and the front door to the apartment. This floor includes a cloak area and the authentic staircase to the second floor.
Second floor: here you first come to a spacious yet cosy landing where you also find the meter cupboard, a toilet, a closet with the central heating unit (Atag HR, 2017), and the first (large) bathroom featuring a bath and two washbasins.
The living room is wonderfully spacious and light thanks to the double aspect windows. The seating area includes a cosy fireplace. The semi-open-plan kitchen has been finished in a terracotta colour scheme and includes various built-in appliances (induction hob, oven, microwave, and dishwasher) as well as plenty of storage space.
Third floor: a large, open landing where you can easily create a study and with access to the large, sunny, west-facing roof terrace of 28 m2. The high railing along the terrace makes it a wonderfully sheltered spot to relax.
This floor also offers two large bedrooms (one of the bedrooms used to be two rooms and can easily be reconverted into two rooms), and the 2nd bathroom with a toilet, a double washbasin, and a walk-in shower with 2 showerheads. This floor also offers plenty of storage space and a closet with the white goods connections. There are two dormer windows at the front.
Fourth floor: another staircase brings you the other bedrooms on this floor underneath the roof structure with the beautiful rafters. Natural light comes in through the Velux skylights on the landing and in the other two surprisingly large bedrooms. The built-in closets underneath the windows along the back of the house offer even more storage space.
In short, a wonderful and large house with bags of potential!
