Thanks to its high ceilings, patio and high, large windows, the home exudes a feeling of light and openness. The location on the elevated ground floor also confers a wonderful sensation of peace and privacy, while the luxury finish only adds to the level of comfort in this beautiful apartment.

The second entrance on the first floor of the rear part of the property presents intriguing possibilities.

In general
Located in a registered monumental building that was fully renovated both inside and out in 2011. The foundations were updated and the floor level of the basement was deepened, giving this space a ceiling height of over 2.60 metres. All roofs, window frames and facades were also fully renovated. The interiors of the homes were completely refurbished whilst maintaining the original balcony construction and panelling. According to legend, the supporting post that is a feature of the basement dates all the way back to around 1400.

This canal-side property, called 'De Zeepziederij', is now made up of three apartments, which together form a well-organized and very financially sound home owners' association.

Situated in a unique position in the heart of Amsterdam, within the ring of canals. This part of Brouwersgracht is free from through traffic and bars and restaurants, making it a wonderfully peaceful place to live.

In this location in the very centre of Amsterdam, you will find the Noordermarkt, Lindengracht and Haarlemmerdijk and the nine streets where you can buy all your day-to-day groceries; not to mention (organic) weekly markets, speciality shops and a wide range of cafs and other hospitality options. In just a few minutes you can walk to the Central Station, which offers many public transport options including a train that will get you to Schiphol airport within a quarter of an hour. Arterial roads leading to the A10 orbital motorway are located nearby and will carry you in any direction you choose.

You have the option to moor a boat on the canal and enjoy a lovely cruise through the city. The Westerpark is only a few minutes away.

Ascending the stone steps, you step into the spacious foyer of the complex on the elevated ground floor. This impressive foyer houses the front door of the home. The very spacious living room, with French windows leading to the patio, is at the centre of the elevated ground floor. It is the antique hearth fitted with a gas fire, together with the genuine wooden parquet floor and the high ceilings (2.75 m), that lends this space so much character. The dining room, which also boasts a hearth and a gas fire, is situated at the front, with a large window offering a view of Brouwersgracht, recognized as one of the most amazing streets either in the Netherlands or abroad.

The open kitchen is situated to the rear of the property. Designed by Fred Constant and constructed out of solid tabacca wood, this kitchen offers all the Miele appliances you could desire, plus CaesarStone worktops. From the kitchen, which also features a kitchen island, you can enjoy the beautiful view over the courtyard gardens to the rear.

The basement fills an entire floor from front to back and was deepened in 2011, turning it into a fully-fledged living area with high ceilings.

Under the stairs you will find the generously-proportioned toilet room with hand basin. The large foyer is the midpoint of this floor. The built-in cupboards here offer a wealth of storage space.

The spacious deluxe bathroom is located in the middle of the basement. A freestanding bath, a roomy walk-in shower, two wash basins in a solid tabacca wood installation and a large mirror complete the picture.

The home's 'machine room' is located in the next room: a storage space housing the central heating boiler and the connections for your washing machine and dryer.

The master bedroom is located at the front of the apartment and features front-facing windows and generous built-in storage.

To the rear there is a very well-proportioned second bedroom, currently in use as a music room.

The private garden to the rear of the basement level is south facing, creating an oasis of peace
in the centre of Amsterdam.

The elevated ground floor and the basement benefit from under-floor heating throughout.

A staircase leads from the kitchen to the first floor of the rear part of the property, where you will find another potential bedroom with its own luxury bathroom featuring a toilet, wash basin and walk-in shower. A second front door on the first floor is accessible via the shared staircase, making the space ideal for use as a home office or as guest accommodation with its own private entrance.

The second floor houses a space with a built-in wardrobe. This room could be used as a study or bedroom, and provides access to the gorgeous roof terrace measuring more than 10 sq. m. The roof terrace offers a view over the surrounding buildings and gardens and gets a lot of sunshine.

In short: you will be convinced as soon as you walk through the door of this unique home.
