Apartment in Schiedam, Gerrit Verboonstraat
Architectural living in a national monument right in the heart of Schiedam. Coming out the front door you can take a stroll along the canal of the Lange Haven. Visit Theater Aan de Schie or enjoy an old ‘jenever’ (gin) in a pub, sit on a terrace in summer and watch boats passing by. Who doesn't want that! Schiedam is a lively city, known worldwide for the production of gin. The history of the city of Schiedam dates back to the 13th century. Just take a look at the historic buildings and ports and you will see what I mean.
The apartment is on the first floor of a former bank building from 1935. Built under the supervision of the famous Dutch architect Dudok. In 1997 the bank building was converted into an apartment complex, while the striking appearance has been preserved. Characteristic is the combination of the sleek finish and the beautiful authentic details of the past such as the steel frames and the travertine window sills.
The apartment has a large living room and an adjacent study area, a cosy kitchen, a bedroom with a spacious bathroom and a separate toilet. If you come by car, there is a private parking space available in the inner area of the building.
Suitable for a couple: two working professionals with sufficient income and a child (max 1 year).
• Price includes bi-monthly cleaning (obligatory)
• Registration possible for a 4 months or longer stay
We like to offer you a cosy, safe and lovely place to call home, in a quiet and green area away from the noise & located right in the city centre. This place is also gay friendly.
The apartment complex has a closed entrance with doorbells and mailboxes. Through the preserved central hall you walk to the stairwell, the elevator and basement storerooms.
The front door of the apartment is located at the end of the gallery, which means: no passers-by!
You enter a light and spacious hall. At the end of the corridor you will find the toilet with hand basin, storage / laundry room, the fusebox and further access to the bedroom and living room.
The entire apartment has smoothly plastered walls, large windows in characteristic steel frames and a beautifully oiled cherry wood floor. The living room has high ceilings and offers a view over the Tuinlaan and 'De Plantage' - the oldest city park in the Netherlands.
The owner of the house has furnished the apartment in such a way that it fits the look of this monumental building. A bit vintage, quirky and spacious. There is a lot of living space and you can sit with all your friends at the large dining table.
The kitchen is connected to the living room and equipped with a 5-burner gas hob with wok burner, stainless steel extractor hood, dishwasher, microwave, fridge and a freezer. You will also find all the necessary kitchenware, tableware, cleaning tools & cooking/cleaning appliances you need.
The bedroom is located on the quiet backside and courtyard of the building. The bathroom has a bath, sink and a radiator for keeping the towels warm. Towels & floormat are also provided for your convenience.
