Prins Hendrikkade 105-hs,
Very royal monumental home for living and working in the middle of the centre of Amsterdam. This special house consists of a main floor, a basement with plenty of daylight and an entire back house. The total surface area is approx. 220 m2.
Enormous monumental windows provide a view on the always lively city at the canal side with the Scheepvaarthuis (the current Amrath hotel), the Openhavenfront and the Scheepvaartmuseum as decor.
The high, bright basement is suitable as an office or practice at home. From the street side an extra entrance can be created. Double habitation is also among the possibilities because of that. A patio is present in the middle area of the building and a small outside area at the front side.
The building originates from the Golden Age, approx. 1650 and was completely and stylishly renovated in 2005 with lots of attention to comfort, atmosphere and preservation of monumental ornaments. Historical details, such as windows and the high beam ceiling were combined with modern comfort, such as the excellent sound insulation. The atmospheric kitchen, provided with all comforts, and the high stately dining room, suitable for diners with a large gathering, ensure a pleasant homely atmosphere.
The apartment is located at the quiet part of the Prins Hendrikkade, directly at the beginning of the Kromme Waal with view on the Scheepvaarthuis, the Openhavenfront and the Oosterdokeiland. The Central Station, Nieuwmarkt, the Openbare Bibliotheek (library), the Dam, Waterlooplein and Scheepvaartmuseum are at walking distance.
The house is excellently accessible by car by Ring A-10 Oost. Parking is possible in front of the door or in one of the garages in the direct vicinity (Oosterdokeiland). The public transport is ideal: Centraal Station is located at less than 500 metres distance (train, tram, metro and bus).
The view is even more beautiful. The redesign of the public space in the vicinity of the Prins Hendrikkade is in full swing. This will keep out the transit traffic. Cars will be redirected behind the Centraal Station from 2018 onward. The public space will be redesigned and there will be a new pier for houseboats. More information can be found in the destination plan which can be requested with us.
Via the natural stone outside stairs you enter the spacious high hall with wardrobe and dressing area. This forms the entrance for the anteroom and the spacious dining-living room with the high (4.15 m!) original beam ceiling. The anteroom is excellently insulated, allowing the lively townscape of outside to be combined with a pleasant quiet inside climate.
Through a hall, which also provides access to the patio, you arrive in the atmospheric and ideal kitchen-diner in the back house.
From the hall you go with the spiral staircase to the basement with high spaces (up to approx. 2.6 m). The stairway ensures, along with a large top window, natural daylight in the spacious rear part of the basement. In this part of the basement there is a large bedroom with a private large and luxurious bathroom. In addition, in this part of the basement there is a washing area/storage area and separate toilet.
Through the hall you reach the front of the basement, where there is a spacious office with lots of daylight. This area is suitable for a practice or office at home, but can also be used as an extra bedroom.
The entire floor features floor heating.
The backhouse is accessible from the kitchen-diner. On the first floor there is a second/third bedroom. Via a fixed staircase you reach the second (roof) floor where a smaller room and a second bathroom are located. The two floors together are ideal as a separate ‘house’ for the children or guests and provides lots of privacy.
In short, a very special house as a whole with plenty of possibilities for living and working in a characteristic and monumental building at a beautiful historical location.
