EXCEPTIONALLY CHARMING DOWNSTAIRS APARTMENT OF 118 M2 (GFA 139 M2) WITH A SPLIT-LEVEL LAYOUT DIVIDED OVER THREE FLOORS. THIS HOUSE OFFERS A SPACIOUS KITCHEN-DINER, A COSY LIVING ROOM, FOUR BEDROOMS, A GREAT STUDY, AND A NICE GARDEN. THE PROPERTY IS SITUATED ON FREEHOLD LAND IN THE SOCIABLE WATERGRAAFSMEER AREA.
This charming downstairs apartment is part of a building dating back to 1901 and which was divided into three apartment rights in 2017. The apartment has a very practical layout and feels wonderfully serene and cosy. The split-level layout, separating the living and the spacious kitchen-diner, is certainly one of its great details. Another bonus are the many built-in closets offering loads of storage space.
The Homeowners’ Association (VvE) ‘Wakkerstraat 5 te Amsterdam’ consists of three members. The service charges are €212.54 per month and the VvE is managed by the owners who convene at least once a year.
The front door at street level opens up to a few steps that lead to the raised living room at the front. The large windows at the front overlook the street and a mezzanine floor looks out to the kitchen-diner below. The sitting area includes several fitted cupboards and a glass door to the sleeping quarters upstairs.
The spacious kitchen-diner has broad units with mint-green cupboards and drawers combined with a light-coloured worktop. The kitchen also offers several built-in appliances, cast flooring with underfloor heating, and two sets of French doors leading to the adjacent garden. The fully tiled garden has a surface area of approx. 29 m2 and includes a large wooden shed.
Apart from the kitchen-diner, the basement area offers a large bathroom, two bedrooms, and a study. The bedroom at the back features a bespoke loft bed. A few steps from the kitchen lead to the study (which can be locked), from where the second bedroom is reached. The spacious hallway in between includes several built-in closets, including one with the white goods connections. The study, hallway and bedroom are all carpeted, feature the original beamed ceiling, and have internal windows to let in more daylight.
The bathroom has a central position on this floor and is finished with mixed, light-coloured flooring and blue and white wall tiles with a blue strip. The bathroom features a bath, a separate shower, a toilet, and a wooden double washbasin unit.
A door in the living room leads to a vestibule with a toilet and a short staircase leading to the upstairs bedrooms. The generously sized master bedroom includes fitted wall wardrobes in a mint-green colour scheme. The second bedroom features a bespoke loft bed. Both bedrooms look out to the garden.
The living room, the hallway and the sleeping quarters upstairs all have white wooden flooring. All windows are double-glazed.
