Van Breestraat 62 – characteristic property in elegant Museum Quarter
Breathtaking! – the street, countless original architectural details and how the light pours in through the windows. Van Breestraat is, without doubt, one of the Museum Quarter’s most extraordinary streets. Lined with singular, exquisite buildings. Sophisticated yet welcoming, a unique combination. All within a minutes’ walk from Vondelpark and several shopping streets.

An opportunity to create a stunning home
At 62 Van Breestraat is this charming, ca. 215 sqm home with a balcony, garden and roof deck. The house and its finishes could do with a make-over, has excellent bones.- a solid foundation that was laid over 100 years ago. Its original period features, such as timber wainscoting, pocket doors, a marble fireplace mantel, ceiling ornaments and herringbone (tapis) flooring lend this home unparalleled charm and character.

Ground floor
On the ground-floor level, pocket doors divide the front and back rooms. The kitchen is currently separate, but can be integrated into the dining room. Open the doors to the small patio and enjoy the good life with a view of the beautifully landscaped garden. The sellers, who are also the neighbors, have expressed the wish that the open character of the garden will be maintained.

1st and 2nd floors
The hall by the dining room leads through to the first floor. This level is spacious, with 2 large bedrooms and a good-sized bathroom. There is a separate 2nd restroom. Stairs from the hall lead up to the 2nd floor, with two more bedrooms. One of these opens to the balcony. This room would be perfect as a study or a gym, a quiet sanctuary in your own home.

Certainly a fully functional level. The foundation was repaired in 2000, at which time the basement was also excavated. At the front, clearance is 2.20m, in the rear the ceiling height is 2.30m.
Ideal for a playroom, gym or a bedroom. Daylight entry from both sides.
