Amazing double ground floor house (UA 151m², GFA 198m²), tastefully renovated (2011) and located at a top location in a very popular street in the Weteringbuurt neighbourhood in Amsterdam Centrum. The Den Texstraat is a tranquil, atmospheric street and located between the lively 'De Pijp' and the Canal Belt, close to the popular
Utrechtsestraat. Pleasant places for entertainment and exclusive shops are very close at hand.
The house, on the ground floor and first floor of a stately building, is renovated to a high level while maintaining original details. A lot of light enters thanks to the high ceiling (3.31m) and the sliding door on the ground floor. There are no less than 4 bedrooms, a luxurious bathroom and two beautiful separate toilets. In addition, the house has a high amount of storage space thanks to the enormous basement which extends across the full length of the house (29m²).
Also because of the presence of a garden (approx. 6m in depth), good schools in the neighbourhood and a playground at the end of the street, this house is especially suitable for families. However, this house is also very appealing for people without children. In short, a lovely (family) home in a tranquil street, with all the possibilities that a large city has to offer at walking distance.
The ground floor has a private entrance with intercom and door opener. The vestibule still has the original tiles and marble from 1890. Through the vestibule door you enter in the generously sized hallway with stairs to the first floor. This hallway has marble tiles in a stylish black and white pattern. At the end of the hallway there is access to a spacious, stylish, separate toilet with washbasin.
Through a door at the end of the hallway you arrive in the beautiful L-shaped living room with open kitchen. You will immediately experience a sense of luxuriousness and spaciousness thanks to the enormous ceiling height (3.31m). The ceiling, with beautiful ornaments, has been carefully preserved at the front side. There is also a beautiful bright oak herringbone parquet floor with border in the entire room. The house was extended at the back with a sliding door which ensures lots of light. In addition, the extension has made it possible to create a large open kitchen with scullery. The scullery is used by the current residents for storage and the central heating boiler is also located here. The entire living room has smoothly plastered walls, and has been painted in a fresh white (2019).
The luxurious, modern kitchen with beautiful granite worktop has lots of storage space. Various built-in appliances are present including a dishwasher (Siemens), an extra-wide 6-ring gas stove including wok burner and oven with stainless steel extraction hood (SMEG), a combination microwave (Siemens) and a refrigerator-freezer combination (Siemens). In addition, the kitchen features a useful Quooker. The kitchen still has a practical breakfast bar, in the same modern sleek style.
The landing on the first floor provides access to all quarters. There is both a large and a small bedroom located at both the front and the back. The large bedroom at the back has French doors to a balcony with storage closet. The large bedroom at the front has an idyllic bay window and tilt/turn windows. There is a spacious luxurious bathroom in the middle with a double washstand, a bathtub with hand shower and thermostat tap, a walk-in shower with thermostat tap and a design radiator. Immediately to the right upon arrival in the bathroom is a deep walk-in closet with the set-up for washing machine and dryer. In addition, there is a separate modern toilet with washbasin on this floor. The entire floor, except for the wet areas, comes with a beautiful lamella parquet floor.
From the hall you can take the stairs to the generously sized basement. This basement extends across the full width of the building (29m²) and is used by the current residents as storage space. In addition, the meter cupboard is located here.
The beautifully arranged garden (approx. 6m in depth) has a terrace and there is still sufficient space left for a trampoline for any children.
The Den Texstraat is an atmospheric and family friendly street at the edge of 'De Pijp' and the Canal Belt, in the bustling Amsterdam Centrum. The beautiful street is located between the Weteringschans and the Nicolaas Witsenkade and next to the Tweede Weteringplantsoen with the UJ Klaren playground. It owes its name to Mr C. J. A. den Tex (1824-1882), who used to be mayor of Amsterdam from 1868 to 1879.
If you like to enjoy good restaurants, convivial cafes and pleasant, exclusive shops, then this is possible in the Utrechtsestraat, and of course also abundantly by the canals and in De Pijp. For your daily groceries you can turn to the AH at the Frederikplein or go to Aldi at the Nieuwe Weteringstraat, but there is of course also the nearby Albert Cuypmarkt.
For culture, there are various museums to visit in the direct vicinity (Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Van Gogh Museum) and there is also the Concertgebouw and Carré Theatre. The nearby versatile Amstelveld is used for such things as antique markets and flower markets. There is also a children's playground with sandbox, a lawn bowling court and space for football.
The house is located close to the prestigious primary and secondary schools of Amsterdam.
