Keizersgracht 495-H, 1017 DM

A unique Penthouse of approx. 125m², with a terrace overlooking the canal, situated in the former renovated Gymnasium, a richly decorated building with a lift, on a beautiful section of the Keizersgracht.
The apartment covers the entire top floor of the canal side of the building and is spaciously laid out, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a study and an extra guest room.

The apartment is located in a beautiful, central area of the city, on a gorgeous stretch of the Keizersgracht between Nieuwe Spiegelstraat and Leidsestraat. The lovely boutiques of the ‘nine streets’, the Dam square and the Vondelpark are all within walking distance.

A substantial front door leads to the spacious central hall with marble flooring. The lift and staircase lead to the penthouse on the third floor.

Entrance hall, corridor with high built-in cupboards currently used as a dressing room and storage area. The main bedroom is large and features a wall-to-wall wardrobe. The adjacent private bathroom has a bath, a toilet, wash basin, and mosaic tiles from Intercodam.

The living room is situated on the canal side and has a large ceiling height of approx. 5m. The afternoon sun shines on the terrace which is accessed by glass patio doors and overlooks the canal. The terrace of approx. 7.5m² has a transparent parapet, offering a free view of the water.

The living room has a nice sitting area around a FIREPLACE and a modern half-open kitchen. Because of the U-shape, the kitchen is hidden from view, but has an open connection with the rest of the living room. The stylish modern kitchen has Belgian blue stone countertops and build-in appliances (fridge, freezer, dishwasher). The dining area offers a view of the terrace next to it and the water.

On this level there is a guest room which has its own (second) bathroom with a walk-in shower.
In the hallway, there is a separate toilet, a central heating space with extra storage and a separate room for the washing machine and dryer.

In the living room, stairs lead to the floor above where a study, with customised cupboards, which is cleverly designed to maximise space, can be found. There is also an extra guestroom on this level (third bedroom).

Most of the apartment has herringbone parquet flooring and the walls and ceilings have smooth stuccowork. The apartment is double glazed and located on private land.
