Top floor loft on historic canal
The UNESCO listed canal district of Amsterdam is considered one of the most prestigious areas to live in Amsterdam. The stunning architecture by day, and the large lit up windows and elegant streetlights by night reflected in the water give the area an almost magical appeal. Furthermore, because of its very central location, all that Amsterdam has to offer is at your doorstep. If you want to make your stay in this town as Amsterdam as possible, this is where you need to be.
Between the hip and trendy Utrechtsestraat and the river Amstel, along one of the nicest stretches of the Keizersgracht, is this spectacular piece of property. This large, monumental canal house was completely refurbished and split into three, luxurious and premium dwellings. One of them is this comfortable top floor loft apartment.
From the ground floor, the elevator takes you up to the fourth and top floor of this 17th Century building. The front door of this 95m2/1,022 square feet apartment opens into an open foyer with built-in work desk, custom made storage unites and a hidden-away washer/dryer unit. A modern galley kitchen with all modern appliances leads into the spacious living room with electric fireplace and canal views in the front. As this apartment is on the top floor, and the roofs are pitched, the high ceiling with exposed beams and joists create a loft type sensation. Also, the pitch allowed for dormer windows to be installed, which resulted in an abundance of natural light.
In the back are the modern bathroom with walk-in shower and single vanity and a separate powder room. The bedroom, with comfortable double Hästens bed, has the same loft type feel as the living room. Despite the pitch of the roof, there is enough room for a large and comfortable bed, a separate seating area, a large built-in closet and a make-up table. Open doors lead to a small but functional South facing balcony that offers wonderful views of the gardens in the back and is a peaceful retreat for sunny days.
