MODERN TOWNHOUSE, RENOVATED TO A VERY HIGH AND LUXURIOUS STANDARD, OF OVER 280 M2 (RESIDENCE OF 257 M2 BASED ON THE NEN2580 STANDARDS AND A FRONT ROOM OF 23 M2 WITH A HEAD HEIGHT OF 1.92M, TOTAL GFA OF 318 M2). THE HOUSE COMES WITH A SOUTH-FACING GARDEN AND THREE BALCONIES AND SITS ON FREEHOLD LAND IN THE ELEGANT AMSTERDAM OUD-ZUID AREA THAT BORDERS THE MUSEUM QUARTER.
In 2013, the residence was tastefully renovated to create a very luxurious interior in which modern materials are combined with authentic period features. In 2019, the current owners updated the two floors with the living areas to an even higher luxurious standard. The kitchen-diner, for example, now has dual-aspect windows and is finished with cast flooring with underfloor heating. The refitted kitchen includes high-end units in a green/brass colour scheme and a steel floor-to-ceiling china cabinet against the wall. A glass-in-steel wall was added in the living area which, together with the two light domes on the top floors, makes the house exceptionally light and airy. The wet rooms were tastefully renovated with premium-quality materials in 2019 as well.
The magnificent finish and very generous floor space have resulted in an ultimately comfortable residence.
The charming entrance leads to a spacious hall with the downstairs toilet and a cloak area. The hall opens up to the impressive kitchen-diner, which is largely at garden level. The ground-level part of the kitchen-diner features broad bespoke wooden cabinets and beautiful wooden steps to the rest of the kitchen. The open wooden staircase with steel casing leading to the upper floors is definitely an eye-catching feature. This floor is entirely finished in a serene, green colour scheme and has a very high ceiling with top-to-bottom windows at the back.
The spaciously laid-out kitchen offers a high-end island with a hob and sink, made with a green marble worktop combined with handle-free brass cupboards on both sides and a broad sink at the shorter end. The brass sink includes a regular black tap and a black Quooker tap. Furthermore, the island includes a hob, a Gaggenau oven, and a climate-controlled wine cabinet. Additional units along the wall offer ample storage and include various built-in appliances, such as an American fridge and an extra Subzero’s fridge/freezer drawer). On this side, the green colour scheme is combined with a wooden worktop and a high, steel china cabinet, and the second sink is a very practical addition. A few steps at the front of the kitchen-diner lead to a spacious lounge with an additional kitchen unit and a beautiful beamed ceiling, a built-in closet spanning the entire wall, and lots of natural light.
All the way at the back are the doors to the south-facing garden with a surface area of 30 m2. The garden is fully tiled and includes a wooden shed.
The first floor comprises the living area with the typical “en-suite” layout and double doors leading to French balconies at the front and back. The front and back rooms can be separated by closing the glass-in-steel partition wall with double doors. The room at the back is currently used as a study. The generously sized living room at the front features a wood-burning fireplace, doors to a small balcony, and beautiful arched stained-glass windows. Halfway onto this floor is the open staircase leading to the sleeping quarters upstairs.
Upstairs, the landing offers access to two spacious bedrooms, the first bathroom, and a separate toilet. The bedroom at the back has double doors to another small south-facing balcony overlooking the garden. Like the living room, the bedroom at the front has three arched stained-glass windows. Both bedrooms have broad floor-to-ceiling wardrobes. The luxuriously appointed and spacious bathroom is centrally positioned and has marble flooring in earthy tones with underfloor heating and walls in a natural colour scheme. This bathroom features a free-standing bath, a large walk-in shower (with a rain shower head and a hand-held shower), and a broad wooden washbasin unit with two integrated modern black taps and two mirrors.
Going up again, the upper floor offers three more rooms and a luxury bathroom. The master bedroom is at the rear and has double doors to a south-facing balcony as well as broad (handle-free) floor-to-ceiling wardrobes. Another bedroom, at the front, has a charming dormer window and is also of a good size. The third room, also at the front, is currently used as a laundry room. The spacious landing on this floor benefits from a large domed skylight and includes the white goods connections and additional storage space.
The luxuriously appointed bathroom on this floor is also finished with marble flooring in earthy tones with underfloor heating and walls in a natural colour scheme. The eye-catching large, domed skylight lets in lots of natural light. This bathroom features a walk-in shower (with a rain shower head and a hand-held shower), a broad wooden washbasin unit with two oval washbowls and an oval mirror, and a wall-mounted lavatory. As in the other bathroom, the fixtures are in black and integrated.
