LIGHT, MODERN AND SPACIOUS TWO STOREY RESIDENCE ON THE UPPER FLOORS OF 130 M2 (GROSS FLOOR AREA 145 M2) WITH A LOFT-LIKE ATMOSPHERE, TWO DECENT BEDROOMS AND A MODERN KITCHEN AND BATHROOM, FREEHOLD IN THE VIBRANT AMSTERDAM OUD-WEST URBAN DISTRICT, ALMOST BORDERING THE VONDELPARK
This lovely residence on the upper floors is situated in a property that dates from 1885 and is spread over the third and fourth floors. There is an exceptional amount of light in the residence due to the width of the apartment and the many windows. The residence also has a charming beamed ceiling on the uppermost floor as well as the original, sanded, wooden floorboards from 1885.
It would be possible to create a roof terrace on the roof. Planning permission and building licences still need to be applied for.
The Association of Owners is called “Vereniging van Eigenaars van het gebouw Overtoom 168” in Amsterdam. The monthly service costs amount to € 75 and the association is self-managed.
The staircase leads from the communal entrance to the door to the apartment, situated on the second floor. A small hallway with cloakroom takes you to the internal staircase that leads to the open living room on the third floor.
The sitting area is at the front of the building and is complete with a tasteful wood-burning stove. The rear of the building consists of the spacious open kitchen fitted with a handsome modern kitchen block. The kitchen has light-coloured cabinets and drawers and an anthracite counter top. The eye-catcher here is the wide stove with a wok ring and large oven.
There is an open staircase in the middle of this floor to the bedroom floor above. The third floor is fitted throughout with a light-coloured wooden floor.
The landing offers access to the two bedrooms and the separate toilet. There is also an open wooden staircase with a skylight to the possible future roof terrace.
The two spacious bedrooms are to be found at the front and the rear of the building. The bedroom at the front has a skylight and a wide built-in cupboard, which is fitted with the washing machine connection and the central heating system. The bedroom at the rear has a small skylight. The bathroom may be reached from both of the bedrooms. The bedroom at the front would be easy to split up, thus creating a third bedroom (please see alternative floor plan).
The bathroom is finished with anthracite floor tiles and light-coloured walls. The bathroom is fitted with a bath, a separate shower, a designer radiator and two sink units.
The bedroom floor has the original, sanded, wooden floorboards from 1885.
The residence is fitted with double-glazing throughout with the exception of the skylight in the bedroom at the rear.
