The renovation of this stylish townhouse is mainly done by Flow Works. Flow is known for the contemporary and luxurious style of the signature of television personality Bob Sikkens. More info: www.flow.nu.
The whole house has new wooden window frames with HR glass.
There are also various preparations done to divide the house in a later stage in two apartments. On the ground flour there are two separate entrances. One will then give access to a three-floor apartment on the ground floor, including garden. The other, will give access to a two-floor apartment plus roof terrace. The preparations made are for example; two separate CV systems, additional gas/water connections, as well as splitting intercom and lift. This gives a wide range of interesting (investment) opportunities. Of course, the house also offers a good option for a practice/office at home.
In the rare case that a unique opportunity like this, comes on the market, most properties in Amsterdam are built on the cityís leasehold land. This town house has its own freehold land. This means no additional yearly leasehold costs and takes away all the liabilities of the cityís leasehold system/inflation in the future.
