The seller came to our office through an acquaintance, and during the first meeting, there was an immediate mutual trust. Our office then proceeded to prepare the property for sale. With our advice and the seller’s efforts, the apartment is now ready for sale. The property has been in the possession of the same family for a long time and the oldest documentation I could find dates back to 1930, which bears the family name. I consider this a beautiful property with great potential for the new owner. It is possible to renovate the apartment and adapt it to modern standards. Additionally, extra living space can be created by excavating and expanding the basement. It will be interesting to see whether the apartment will be occupied by a private individual in its current form or if a developer will purchase it and optimize it for residential use.

owards the end of the 19th century, there arose a need for a new way of building. The era of repetition, constantly referring back to historical forms, needed to come to an end. This marked the beginning of the Art Nouveau period, also known as Jugendstil. Characteristic of this style period are the rich, intricate decorations that can be immediately recognized by their nature-inspired forms, such as lavish depictions of flowers and birds, meticulously crafted by hand. Entire buildings were adorned with these decorations, both on the exterior and interior. In Amsterdam, these ornaments were primarily used by shops to create a sense of luxury.
This Art Deco influence can be seen in the balconies’ railings at the front, where the bars are beautifully wrought. Elements of this period also appear in the architraves of the en-suite rooms on the ground floor and first floor, as well as in the doors.
In 1909, plots 37 and 39 were built, with the former designated as a residence for three families and the latter for two families. In 1999, the first floor and ground floor were officially merged.
Upon entering, you’ll find a green tile platform from the construction period and a granite floor with an elegant border, creating a serene atmosphere. The high ceiling and original ornaments add to the tranquil ambiance of the hallway. The central hall, with its impressive height of 3.40 meters and intact architraves, serves as the focal point of the house and provides access to all rooms. There is a side room with an interesting history—it used to be a consultation room. The front room of the en-suite features upper windows with charming divided panes, allowing ample natural light to fill the space. The kitchen, located towards the garden side, is spacious enough for a cozy dining table and offers direct access to the sunny garden. A guest toilet is situated under the staircase.
The en-suite area, still in its original and well-preserved condition, separates the living room from the front room. This room features a herringbone floor. The sliding doors in the living room lead to the south-facing garden, providing tranquility and privacy. The pass-through window is a relic from bygone times.
The first floor comprises three bedrooms. The front room, spanning the width of two windows, features a new ceiling and practical built-in closets. The en-suite area remains in its original state, with characteristic light wooden doors. The front room has French doors that open onto a balcony. The bathroom is simple and equipped with a bathtub, washbasin, toilet, and bidet. The central heating system is also located here. Additionally, there is a separate toilet and a laundry room with connections for a washing machine and dryer on this floor. The laundry room is spacious enough to double as a linen closet.
De riante tuin is circa 100 m² groot en ligt op het zuiden. Dat betekent dat er de gehele dag door van de zon genoten kan worden. De achtergelegen panden liggen op grote afstand en zo is er genoeg privacy om heerlijk te kunnen ontspannen.
Op de eerste verdieping is een charmant balkon aan de voorzijde met een mooi smeedijzeren hekwerk.
