Imagine a triptych of 17th century properties, situated on Amsterdam’s most prestigious canal – the Herengracht has been THE place for aristocracy, wealthy merchants and the most influential regents and mayors since the Golden Age – including the accompanying buildings such as the original coach house on the adjacent Reguliersdwarsstraat and the triple-sized garden, enclosed by these historic buildings.
Then imagine that this project’s centre property, including its monumental, almost 49 ft wide façade, has been completely renovated and rebuilt in the 1960s to extend it to nearly twice its size at the back, in order to house the expansion of the neighbouring Banque de Paris et des Pays-Bas.
And there it is: the unique opportunity to develop several 3770 sqft open spaces, featuring just windows on three sides, into bespoke single or double-level apartments – with the top floor apartment boasting an equally large roof terrace. Access is via private elevator. An enormous underground ‘vault’ turned into a wellness area and perhaps – we envision – your private wine cellar. Gorgeous garden. Private underground parking. The lot.
The Artesia will house an office building and approximately 30 apartments in a range of sizes, for a select party of proud residents from all corners of the world. Yet, these four premises, in the heart of the city, offer a grandeur and full custom service that very few dare to dream of.
