Overlooking one of the iconic “Seven Bridges of Reguliersgracht” stands a beautifully renovated townhouse. The house was originally built in 1890 and has been renovated by the Amsterdam architecture firm Standard Studio.
The home is a historic landmark, it once housed the war resistance newspaper Het Parool, and it still features historic elements. However, much of the interiors are modern using high-quality, luxurious materials like marble in the flooring and kitchen island.
Despite the central location in Amsterdam, this home feels like a quiet oasis with comfortable (but grand) living spaces and even a home cinema in the basement.
The sunroom is now used as a fabulous dining area with curved built in sofa and windows all the way up to the ceiling.
The kitchen sits at the center of this floor, connecting the sun lounge and living room. The island is made of pure marble.
The home is divided over three floors plus a finished basement with a total floor space of 3,000 square feet as well as an outdoor space.
The stairwell has a 3,5 meter ceiling height and a chandelier that serves as the focal point.
The top floor of the canal home has a wonderful exposed beam ceiling. This space is now used as the grand master ensuite. The bedroom has custom-made cabinets and a moody dark feature wall.
The grand master bathroom also has a beautiful beam structure on full view. The bathroom features a double shower and a freestanding bath.
The walk in closet sits between the bedroom and the bathroom and includes a vanity desk.
The front room on the second floor is now used as an office. All three rooms on this floor have floor-to-ceiling custom shelving and large windows.
The home is currently listed on The Agency Amsterdam
