UNIQUE PROPERTY IN AMSTERDAM’S RENOWNED OUD ZUID DISTRICT

The apartment has an ample south-facing garden of 250 m², with 2 terraces that are partially covered, as well as an adjoining studio with a separate entrance, making it extremely well suited to use as a home office or guest accommodation. Finally the 95 m² semi-basement contains an additional bathroom and bedroom belonging to the studio and an adjoining wellness and fitness area.
LIVING IN THE CITY
To live on Apollolaan is to live in the most exclusive part of the international city of Amsterdam, the Oud Zuid district. This district is spacious and luxurious in its design. With its majestic old plane trees the leafy Apollolaan one of Amsterdam’s widest, most beautiful streets, is typical in this regard. Living in this residential setting is stylish and wonderfully tranquil, despite all the delights and amenities of the city being within easy reach.
The apartment is centrally located, close to the arterial roads for the A10 motorway, the Amsterdam canal district and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The Vondelpark, Amsterdam’s most beautiful park, is within walking distance, as is the Olympiaplein with its plethora of sporting facilities. In the area you find exclusive retail areas such as Beethovenstraat, PC Hooftstraat and Cornelis Schuytstraat, as well as various famous museums such as Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum and Rijksmuseum. The Hilton Hotel and a variety of fine restaurants are also in the vicinity of the property as well as Station Zuid WTC and the Zuidas business district and some highly regarded schools (primary and secondary education), including The British School.
The property has been fully renovated over 2016/2017 by Van Egmond Architects. The responsibility for the interior design has been vested in Clairz Interior Design. The apartment’s layout has been entirely adapted to contemporary housing needs, with a great deal of attention having been devoted to spaciousness. Resultant benefits include a fluent transition between interior and exterior spaces with the use of the highest quality materials. The standard upon delivery will be without compromise, as can be expected with a property of this class.
The majestic entrance hall is entirely in keeping with the grandeur of the apartment. The secure entrance leads into a general corridor fashioned in marble with copper bells. The access to the apartment contains a cloakroom, a toilet and a separate washbasin.
With its 4 large windows, the extremely spacious lounge offers a view of the magnificent plane trees and the majestic Apollolaan. The lounge also has a discreet office space.
The open kitchen is custom-made and comes with all modern conveniences. Here the contrast between bold and chic is emphasized in the combination of dark cabinets and a marble countertop. The kitchen comes with luxuries such as a Quooker, Smeg six-burner cooker, Miele dishwasher, Siemens American Freezer, Liebherr wine climate cabinet and various built-in devices. The kitchen island with bar stools is perfect for cosy get-togethers. In this regard, the gas fireplace will ensure extra warmth and comfort in the kitchen. The dining room section is on the garden side, just like the kitchen. A steel and glas folding wall allows full access to the adjoining terrace and garden from the dining area.
The spacious master bedroom is fitted with French windows offering access to the garden and terraces. Ceiling-to-floor glass façades over its entire width make the bedroom feel spacious and light. The master bedroom has an adjoining walk-in closet containing bespoke cabinets.
The master bedroom offers access to the generous and luxurious bathroom which is fitted with underfloor heating. The showpiece is the freestanding bathtub with a view of the garden and terrace. There is a separate hygienic Geberit toilet as well as ample double washbasins mounted on bespoke drawer units. The built-in designer taps are from Vola. The rain shower with seating area completes this magnificent bathroom.
The apartment boasts two spacious children’s rooms, each with their own adjoining bathroom. There is a separate toilet on the corridor.
The apartment has an ample south-facing garden of approximately 220 m², with 2 terraces that are partially covered. The garden can be accessed from both the apartment and the studio.
The studio adjoins the apartment and comprises a lounge with an open kitchen. In the semi-basement you’ll find a bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom can also be accessed from the garden, as a result of which the room enjoys a surprisingly large amount of light ingression. The studio has a separate entrance, making it extremely well suited to use as a home office or guest accommodation.
A gym and sauna have been created in the semi-basement. Two windows on the gardenside ensure that the fully equipped gym gets plenty of daylight. A post-workout session in the infrared sauna with sauna oven designed by SJARTEC is a real treat. A rain shower can also be found here.
