1011 AJ, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Prins Hendrikkade 105-hs, (continuation of the Kromme Waal)
Luxurious living at an historical location in the middle of the city. This amazing “city house”, located at the part of the Prins Hendrikkade where originally the old port (Kromme Waal) was, is in the middle of the centre of Amsterdam, at walking distance from Centraal Station, the Nieuwmarkt and opposite the Oosterdokseiland. It concerns a National Monument.
This special house is divided across 2 floors and an entire home at the rear. The total surface area of the house is approx. 220 m² and despite the central location it is especially quiet. This house is very suitable for an “office” or “practice” at home and possible also still for double occupancy (It is among the possibilities to create an extra entrance from the street side to the basement). The building dates back to approx. 1650 and the house was completely renovated in 2005. For this renovation a maximum living and working comfort was realised with much attention to preserving the monumental ornaments, such as a fireplace and the historic beamed ceilings.
General information: The house consists of a main floor, an entire basement and also a complete home at the rear. There is a patio in the middle section between the front side of the building and the home and also another small outside area at the front where a second entrance can be found to for example the office or practice space. Cable, Ethernet or telephone connections are present in all areas.
Layout: Main floor Using the natural stone exterior staircase you arrive in the spacious hall with wardrobe and storage area; entrance to the “anteroom” and to the spacious living room with high (4.15 m!) original beamed ceiling. The anteroom is very thoroughly insulated, allowing the vibrant cityscape outside to be combined with a pleasant quiet inside atmosphere. Through a hall, which also provides access to the patio, you arrive in the spacious and very atmospheric and practical kitchen diner in the back home.
Basement From the hall the winding staircase leads to the basement with high spaces (up to approx. 2.6 m). The stairwell ensures along with a large upper window for ample natural daylight at the rear of the basement. In this part of the basement there is a large bedroom with an own very spacious and luxurious bathroom. In addition, in this part of the basement there is a washing/storage space and separate toilet. Through the hall you reach the front of the basement where there is a spacious work room with ample daylight. This area is suitable for a practice or office at home, but can also be used as an extra bedroom if so desired. The entire floor features floor heating.
Back home: The entire back home is accessible from the kitchen diner. On the first floor there is a second bedroom (currently in use as an extra work room). The stairs lead to the second (roof) floor where there is a small work room and a second bathroom. The two floors together are ideal as a separate “home” for the children and/or guest with lots of privacy. In short, a special house with many possibilities in a very characteristic and monumental building.
