This is a beautiful building constructed at the turn of the 20 century, is in the Museum Quarter of Amsterdam South - one of Amsterdam's most sought after locations. The grand scale of the street's architectural designs are reflected in this well-proportioned building.
The apartment has been renovated creatively and imaginatively to a high standard to open it up into a bright, modern and very spacious split level apartment.
You enter via a classic communal entrance with a traditional, red carpeted staircase which remains faithful to the Dutch decoration and design - preserving the original features from wood carved designs to stained-glass windows, with a mosaic tiled hallway floor and lit by a magnificent glass chandelier.
The entrance to the house is on the second floor with a hallway for coats etc, from which the stairs lead up into the spacious open plan living area. With high ceilings and three large front windows, the stiunning open kitchen features an elegant black stone effect kitchen top with in-built burners, beautiful storytiles and high quality kitchen appliances.
