Beautifully renovated double-ground floor apartment measuring approx. 110 m² on a CANAL with a wonderfully landscaped south-facing GARDEN. The apartment is part of a municipally listed building and is a FREEHOLD property, featuring a luxurious custom-made designer kitchen, an attractive bathroom, a fireplace, herringbone parquet and wooden floors, and all modern conveniences. The house is nicely decorated with ample storage space, a garden which is accessible from the living room, two bedrooms and spacious entertainment room.
The property is located on a beautiful canal in the Plantage neighbourhood, a green and quiet part of the Centre near the river Amstel, the Utrechtsestraat and the Artis Zoo. A parking permit is immediately obtainable at this address.
This ground floor apartment is in a nice quiet location close to the lively centre of Amsterdam. The Nieuwe Prinsengracht is located in a pleasant part of the eastern canal district, close to the Artis Zoo, the Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge), the Hermitage Museum and the Carré Theatre on the river Amstel. In the vicinity there are a great number of fine shops, restaurants and cafés. The property has convenient transport links; there is a direct metro connection to Amsterdam Central Station and the A10 ring road and A2 motorway is only five minutes away.
A set of stone stairs outside the building leads up to the apartment which is located on the upper and lower ground floor. A stained-glass front door opens into the hallway which leads to the living room, with a fireplace and great views of the canal and the Sarphatihuis (located opposite). The dining area is situated at the rear of the property, with a luxurious modern open-kitchen equipped with built-in appliances (such as a Miele Steam Oven, PITT-cooking with integrated gas hobs, and a wine fridge). A set of double doors gives access to a balcony and a flight of stairs which leads to an attractive south-facing city garden which is nearly eight meters deep. This garden was recently landscaped by Boekel Tuinen and has appeared in an international publication. Because there are no high buildings on the West side there’s plenty of sun in the afternoon.
A staircase in the living room leads down to the peaceful lower ground floor that has large windows and ceilings. This floor contains the bedrooms and a charming entertainment room with two windows facing the street.
At the front there is also a separate storage room with plumbing for a washer and dryer and additional storage space under the stairs. At the rear are two beautiful bedrooms; the master bedroom has a nice walk-in closet and has access to the garden. The adjacent room has a built-in wardrobe. The luxury bathroom can be reached from the hall, and is equipped with Vola designer taps, very luxurious tiling, a large bath, a walk-in shower and second toilet. The front room currently functions as a study / music room and can be easily converted to create a 3rd bedroom.
