Singel 146 A

Comfortable and opulent living in a historic location

Phenomenal ground floor apartment (349 m²) in unique 17th-century double canal house on the Singel. A spectacular apartment with a beautiful courtyard, completely renovated with preservation of character and located on private land. Really everything is new or restored. The house has a fantastic period room, original (empire) ornaments and details, and is completely renovated to contemporary and luxurious standards.
Here you step into the rich national history of the Golden Age. In the building "De Dolfijn", right next to the imposing canal house Singel 146, lived the captain and later mayor Frans Banninck Cock around 1640. Rembrandt placed Banninck Cock as the central figure on his masterpiece "The Night Watch" which he produced in 1642.

Via the characteristic and historic stairway platform, access to the double front door with Empire door frame. Upon entering, there is a marble communal hallway.
On the bel-etage is the beautiful front door of the apartment. The lobby boasts high ceilings, large, striking windows and doors, as well as a generous cloakroom. On the right side is the large and charming kitchen overlooking the garden. Adjacent to the kitchen, at the front of the house, is a bright and beautiful front room with stunning views of the canal. This room has the original wide wooden floorboards. Adjacent to the kitchen are a laundry and toilet room and a storage/utility room.
The monumental, majestic living room features an original marble fireplace, a mirror, an oak parquet flooring , ornate wood panelling and a Louis de XVI ceiling. On two sides, several large windows overlook the courtyard garden. This is a beautiful and quiet room where an eclectic and modern interior fits well with the original and authentic details.
The spacious rear master bedroom with three windows on the garden side offers peace and privacy and is equipped with a walk-in closet. Adjacent is a luxurious marble bathroom with freestanding bath, double sink, double shower, towel radiator and a separate toilet.
A staircase leads to an upstairs room furnished as laundry facilities and extra space for clothes.
Two staircases lead to the lower living levels. On the left side the covered courtyard and ornamental closets with mood lighting to the ceiling. Over almost the entire floor is an original marble floor. Here is the garden room with access to the garden. This room is very suitable as an office or guest room. Adjacent is a bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. A second bedroom with an adjoining bathroom with bath, double sink and a space for a walk-in closet. Separate (guest) toilet.
On the right side via some steps access to the garden and the basement. This spacious floor is very suitable as an independent living space but can also serve as a practice/office at home.
