The monthly service costs are €283, and there is a reserve fund. The rear side was equipped with new wooden frames with double glazing in 2019, and the monumental bays were also fitted with heritage glass at that time.
Through the private entrance from the street, the carpeted staircase leads to the first floor—the living floor of this city residence. The through living room is generously sized, and the high ceilings and conservatory add even more volume to this space. The beautiful bay at the front, the 3.20m ornamental ceilings, and the original mantelpieces give this floor a cozy and warm ambiance. The rear part encompasses the spacious dining room, with an adjacent kitchen-living area featuring a glass conservatory and French doors to the sunny roof terrace. Both the sitting and dining rooms have two original built-in closets. With the elevated position of the roof terrace (1st floor), there are more sun hours than average. The sheltered roof terrace of more than 22 m2, faces south and features a playful black and white tiled floor, a sunshade over the entire depth, and an outdoor faucet.
The spacious kitchen is adorned with olive-green cabinets and drawers, complemented by a marble-look countertop. An interesting detail is the additional window and the second entrance to the aforementioned roof terrace. In addition to the broad and high equipment wall with cooking and sink areas, this kitchen also boasts a cozy 'island' with seating and extra storage space. The kitchen is fully equipped with built-in appliances and is accessible from the landing as well. Here, there is also a good wardrobe, a separate toilet, and the carpeted staircase to the upper sleeping floors. The entire first floor features a wide plank oak floor.
The landing on the second floor provides access to all rooms and includes a separate toilet and two built-in closets. The master bedroom is entirely at the front, also featuring a beautiful semi-circular bay, and has two wide built-in wardrobes. The second bedroom is located in the middle of the floor and is currently used as a study. This room also has two built-in closets and French doors to a cozy balcony of 4,5 m2 overlooking the private roof terrace. Both bedrooms have carpeting, while the landing has an oak floor.
The spacious bathroom at the rear is finished with anthracite floor tiles and white wall tiles. The bathroom includes a wide walk-in shower with rain and hand shower, a bathtub, and a broad vanity unit with a natural stone sink and two faucets.
The landing on the top floor is equipped with a spacious skylight that provides extra daylight to the entire floor and the staircase. The landing grants access to all rooms. The spacious bedroom at the front has an attractive, open roof structure and two mid-height built-in closets. The second bedroom has a dormer window and a wide built-in closet. At the rear is the bathroom/laundry room. This space is finished with a black and white tiled floor combined with a lightly mottled wall tile, and it features a sit-down bath with a shower, a sink, a toilet, and a countertop under which the washing machine and dryer can be placed. This floor is entirely carpeted.

The monumental building located at Valeriusstraat 193-197, Lomanstraat 40-46, and Hendrik Jacobszstraat 9-11 encompasses the former carriage house of the Amsterdamsche Rijtuig Maatschappij, along with two coachman's houses. The carriage house extended across the ground floor of the entire plot and provided space for the storage of horses and carriages. It also had a waiting room for the coachmen and a laundry room. The construction was commissioned by the Amsterdamsche Rijtuig Maatschappij (Carriage Company, removals and transport, and supply of luxury horses and traction) under director A.C.A. Perk. The architect was J.A. van Straaten (also the architect of, among others, De Bijenkorf). The design is executed in a style reminiscent of English country house architecture. The concrete works were carried out by the Amsterdam Factory of Cement Ironworks. Currently, the ground floor of this residential block houses a supermarket, ensuring freedom from downstairs neighbors.
