This former monastery for nuns has become an impressive residence of 253 m2 with 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a charming living room en suite, study, dining kitchen and nice garden, in the picturesque village Sloten, bordering Amsterdam.
The house is located within biking distance of the center of Amsterdam, in the charming village Sloten. This noble building from around 1910 was originally built as a monastery for nuns. A brick in the façade with the image of Maria reminds of this period. The current owners have renovated it completely into a pleasant and ideal family home.
Via the front door you enter the portal and subsequently the bright hallway. Remarkable is the stunning staircase, the height and the light. The central hallways runs from the front door until the backdoor and provides room for a large coatrack and access to the toilet with washbasin. At the left side of the hall is the spacious living room en suite. Again the ceiling height and the brightness of the room are remarkable, but let’s not forget about the charming original features. The living room in the front is separated from the dining area in the rear by original en suite sliding doors and cabinets. On the other side of the hallway is the dining kitchen, equipped with a 5-burner stove, oven, microwave and loose fridge/freezer. Adjoining is a convenient pantry. At the front of the house is a beautiful study room with a tailormade library cupboard wall.
The beautiful garden had a nice terrace with room for a dining table, a pond and a perfect spot for a nice lounge. Furthermore the garden has a convenient shed and there is a direct access to the garden via the side gate.
Via the spacious staircase you reach the landing on the first floor. There are three bedrooms (of which the master bedroom is extremely spacious) and a bathroom with bath, shower, double sink and toilet.
At the second floor there are three bedrooms as well. Charming are the slanted walls and beams of the roof construction in sight. This floor also has its own bathroom with shower, double sink and toilet. Via a loft ladder you can reach the attic from where a lantern roof structure provides a beautiful view.
