Options to extend the house
The current owner considered to extend the apartment and has asked an architect to make a design for a lovely extension of approx. 15m2 with a wide glass facade at the front, which would allow the total surface to amount to approx. 70m2. There has been a consultation with the stadsdeel (city district West) to discuss the drawing. Although there were possibilities to extend the apartment, the current design has not yet been approved. After adjustment of the design, it will in principle be possible to give the permit . The municipalities states that "a densely built setback with a high-quality glass (or similar) material, belongs to the possibilities.” As the owner moves abroad, he has not been able to realise the plans to make this apartment even more beautiful. More information about this, is available through our office.
