The three-storey houses in Bestevâerstraat were largely and almost entirely designed by Daan Roodenburgh in the years 1924 and 1925. They have very long façades that are interrupted on the odd side only by Rijpstraat. At the intersection with De Rijpstraat, a square has been created with Roodenburgh buildings on three sides and Kruyswijk buildings
on one side.
The facades are built with characteristics of the tightened Amsterdam School. Although the main design appears sober and straightforward, the brick details are of great care and refinement. The gossamer weave of the vertical brickwork at the porches is particularly admirable. At the front doors, we see sturdy granite risers in distinct shapes. Bestevâerstraat has an architectural order 2.

What the resident will miss
My own beach house in the middle of Amsterdam where it feels like a holiday every time I come home. That’s how the house feels to me. When I moved in, the house was delivered completely bare and so it was up to me to turn it into my dream home and that project has been resoundingly successful!
I drove all over the country for the most beautiful materials. The floor comes from the roof of an old barn in France, the colours have been carefully composed with the experts of Verfspeciaalzaak Engels, the kitchen consists of the most beautiful tiles and my extra-deep balcony is an extension of the house because of the French doors. The living pleasure is enormous. The extra-wide passage from living room to hallway gives the house a lot of sense of space, and then if you leave the bedroom open, the sun actually shines in all day. In the morning in the bedroom, and during the day it increasingly turns to the balcony allowing you to enjoy the last hours of the day after a busy day. The tightly measured and custom-made wooden wardrobe, the spacious laundry room and the extra storage space downstairs ensure that you can actually store all your extra stuff and always have a fresh and tidy home.
My favourite spot in the house? Uh; any spot I can enjoy. With a view outside when I read a book on the sofa, at the kitchen table with my laptop while the sun shines inside or on a summer evening when my balcony doors are open and I chill in my hanging chair on the balcony or have a drink with friends. It really is a quiet oasis in a busy city. The Jan van Galenstraat has made a huge positive development in recent years and this is actually true for the whole neighbourhood. Coffee shops, sports and yoga spots, the renovated park around the corner and with roads to Haarlem/Zandvoort nearby and the Jordaan area less than five minutes away, you can go in any direction.
I have been together with my sweet husband for a few years now and we recently turned our house in Haarlem into a little Bestevaerstraat 2.0, because everything I had there I wanted again in my new house. It took me a while, but now it really is time to say goodbye to this lovely place. I wish someone as much fun, peace and sunshine as I had here. Enjoy!
