UNIQUE BRIGHT LOFT IN FORMER CLASSROOM OF 58M2 LOCATED IN HELMERSBUURT! OWN LAND AND NEAR THE VONDELPARK.
You enter this former school through the original wooden double doors on the first floor. Through the stately shared staircase with lead glass windows you reach the house on the second floor. With ceilings as high as 4.5 meters and the distinctive large windows, fantastic light enters the home.
This loft is one open space in a former classroom. Inside the classroom is a structure in which all facilities are concealed. The entire structure was designed by award-winning architect Rob Ten Napel and feels spacious and light in all places.
At the entrance under the stairs of the entresol is a spacious storage room created (big enough for a racing bike for example) which also provides space for the meter cupboard. The modern open kitchen with worktop and cold rolled steel fronts is placed under the entresol and overlooks the living room. The kitchen is equipped with built-in appliances: 5-burner gas stove with large oven (Smeg), a hood, dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer. Furthermore, the kitchen has more than enough storage space.
Around the corner from the kitchen is the toilet subtly concealed in the loft. The spacious living room is an oasis of light through the huge windows.
On the living room side of the kitchen, there is again plenty of storage space behind the steel cabinet doors. The kitchen and living room are lit by LED lighting, and the floor has solid oak parquet.
Next to the steel staircase there is a spacious storage closet with washing machine connection. The staircase leads to the entresol bedroom. From the spacious bed you have a view of the living room below, and the clouds outside. The bedroom has many useful storage spaces and a built-in closet. There is an en-suite bathroom equipped with a walk-in shower and sink.
Toilet, shower, the various storage spaces: all these rooms are connected to mechanical ventilation, so they are always fresh and well ventilated.
Everything is custom-made, part of an overall design, and built in by furniture makers. Besides the fantastic light, and the design of the space, this loft has another (hidden) quality: Due to the floating, insulated floors and thick walls, it is extremely well insulated, especially against noise. This makes it a wonderfully quiet place in the middle of this bustling neighborhood.
The house is located in the former Roman Catholic St. Christina School. The authentic details have been preserved. For example, the complex has a stately entrance with solid wooden double doors and a granite floor. Upon entering, you will feel as if you are stepping back in time. The classic tiled floor, banisters, wide school corridors and stained glass windows give this monumental former school building a stately appearance. The property was a classroom until the 1970s. In the 1970s, the spaces were used by artists as studios. In 2013, the building was thoroughly converted into residential units. A classic building with the conveniences of today!
The Kanaalstraat is a quiet street, around the corner from the bustling Jan Pieter Heijestraat where you will find an organic supermarket, coffee shop, neighborhood supermarket, bakery, and the many specialty restaurants within a 1-minute walk. The Vondelpark is a two-minute walk away. Living in the middle of Oud West, yet in a quiet place!
Both by public transport and by car, the apartment is easy to reach. Tram 1, 7, 11 and 17 stop nearby and go directly to the city (central station) or to Station Lelylaan. By car it is a few minutes to the A10.
