EXCEPTIONALLY SPACIOUS AND CHARMING FREEHOLD CANAL HOUSE OF APPROX. 287 M2 (GFA 347 M2)WITH AN UNOBSTRUCTED VIEW OF THE SINGEL CANAL, COMPRISING A SPACIOUS FRONT AND REAR PART WITH FOUR STOREYS ALONG THE DISTINGUISHED CANAL RING.
This house is more than an exceptional residence with at the front a unique view of the canal, the Stromarkt, the Koepelkerk, and the Nieuwe Haarlemse Sluis. The impressive building is a nationally listed building and was refurbished in 2001-2002, maintaining a classic image.
Due to the separate front and back of the house, it has quite an original layout. The combination of this layout with the various original features make this object quite a remarkable town house.
Its striking incidence of light is noteworthy and is shown to its full advantage on every floor. Almost everywhere in this house you can still see the beamed ceilings and enjoy the lovely roof structure visible at the rear, radiating a romantic atmosphere. Virtually all rooms are provided with good-sized fitted cupboards.
Via the bordes you enter this grand residence through its marble hall where a glass door accesses a long marble corridor where you will find the first separate toilet of the house. Both the lower-ground floor and this floor have a connected rear and front part. The upper storeys have separated these parts. The long corridor has two stairs that lead to the upper floors. The stairs that lead to the rear part of the house is truly impressive. In between the front and rear part there is a patio, visible from every storey.
The elevated ground floor comprises a living room at the front and beautiful open fire with high windows (view on the canal) as well as smaller windows to the patio. The good-sized study is situated at the rear and has a fitted cupboard and a view of the patio.
Lower ground floor: this storey covers a big living room-cum-kitchen at the front and has French doors to the patio. The kitchen is built in a U-shape and is fitted with dark cupboards and drawers and has a marble work top. It has various stainless steel built-in appliances and a quarry-tiled floor with underfloor heating. Storage cupboard/pantry right at the front of the kitchen.
There is another separate toilet and two more storage cupboards in the hall. At the rear there is one of the bedrooms with a separate bathroom where a laundry room is located, a shower cubicle, and the washing machine connection. This bedroom overlooks the patio.
1st floor: you can reach the good-sized bedroom with fitted cupboards, and the master bedroom from the hall. The bathroom is fitted with a bath, toilet, shower, and double vanity unit. The front part of the house has attractive en-suite rooms. The room overlooking the canal is the reading room and has a gorgeous mantelpiece. The room at the back is currently used as a TV room. In the hall you will find access to a more compact bathroom with a toilet, wash basin, and a shower.
2nd floor: via the hall on the first floor you reach the roof terrace at the back. This terrace is completely fitted with wooden floorboards. Halfway through the stairway there is yet another spacious storage space with a central heating setup. The front part of the house has two good-sized bedrooms with a spacious bathroom in between.
