Spacious and charming apartment, approx. 103 sqm, in a beautiful location on Leidsegracht. The characteristic apartment has an unobstructed view due to the location at the quiet rear of a listed national heritage building (Rijksmonument). This is a freehold property.
Situated in a lovely location on the southwestern canal belt, a charming yet bustling spot close to Negen Straatjes and Jordaan Quarter. But also in close proximity to Leidseplein, De La Mar Theater, cultural theater and debate platform De Balie and iconic music halls Paradiso and Melkweg. Nearby Bosboom Toussaintstraat, De Hallen, Vondelpark and Museum Quarter with Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum and Van Gogh Museum and of course Concertgebouw.

The apartment is in a former warehouse, a designated national heritage property (Rijksmonument) with an 18th century pointed gable (XVIII). The rich history of ‘De Goede Verwachting’ is reflected in a number of original details. The generous communal stairwell leads to the apartment on the fifth floor.
Entrance with a coat area and opening to the spacious, bright hall with access to all rooms. The expansive living room is at the end of the hall. This room has an excellent ambiance, featuring a robust exposed beam ceiling (2.45m clearance between the beams), an open gas fireplace and three windows that offer a sweeping view that includes Westerkerk church. The adjacent open-plan kitchen with a breakfast bar is fitted with a range of appliances.
The quiet primary bedroom is good-sized and connects directly to the bathroom with a walk-in shower, sink and a toilet. This is next to the guestroom, which can also be appointed as a luxury walk-in closet or a home gym.
