De Kap van Sarphati
Living in the historic center of Amsterdam offers a unique experience. This apartment is located just around the corner from the Amstel River, Utrechtsestraat, Carre theater, and the Hortus Botanicus, making it a dynamic location with everything within easy reach.
Upon entering the apartment, you’ll immediately notice the sense of tranquility, privacy, and abundant natural light. During the renovation, it has been fully modernized and redesigned with a practical and contemporary layout featuring two spacious bedrooms.
The focal point of the home is the open-plan kitchen with a cozy bar area. Thanks to its high ceilings, this space exudes a loft-like atmosphere that encourages relaxation and socializing
These row houses, built in 1868 and designed by an unknown architect, display eclectic influences with Neo-Renaissance elements. The period of eclecticism, which roughly spanned from 1850 to 1880, was characterized by the blending of various historical styles into a new whole. In the architecture and interior designs of that era, factory-produced ornaments were often used, and lavish decorations were in vogue. Neo-Louis styles, such as Neo-Rococo, were particularly popular.
The building at number 26 was repurposed in 1950 as a daycare center called “Huize Henriëtte,” in honor of the former director Henriëtte Pimentel of the daycare center on Plantage Middenlaan, which was closed during the war. This daycare center closed its doors in 2006.
It appears that J.A. Siewe Jr., who was originally trained as a carpenter but worked as a real estate agent, may have been the client and/or designer of these townhouses.
In 2015, the building underwent an extensive renovation and received a new foundation, allowing it to preserve its historical charm while meeting modern standards and requirements.

The living room is located at the rear of the apartment and overlooks the green inner gardens.

The luxurious open kitchen features a spacious cooking island with a bar and is equipped with various built-in appliances such as a refrigerator/freezer, a combination microwave, and a Quooker (instant boiling water tap)
Throughout the entire apartment, there is a beautiful wooden floor.
Sleeping and bathing
The apartment has two bedrooms at the front. Both bedrooms feature large electrically operated Velux roof windows, providing ample natural light. The air conditioning also ensures cooling in these rooms. The master bedroom offers plenty of storage space with its built-in closet wall. The central bathroom is finished in a light color scheme and equipped with a bathtub, walk-in shower, and a washbasin.
The entire building underwent renovation in 2015. This renovation included the renewal of the foundation and the division of the building into four apartments. During this renovation, the apartments were luxuriously and high-quality refurbished.
