Description

On Amsterdam's most prestigious canal, between the Brouwersgracht and the Leliegracht, stands this magnificent double-wide monumental building from 1760, "Residence Lebrun." Behind the sandstone facade is the unique four-story rear house with a detached guest house and a garden house in the spacious west-facing garden.
The property is situated on private land and covers a total of 422m2 incl. garden house with a garden of no less than 590m2. The house has an original style room with library en suite, a kitchen, a bedroom with bathroom en suite and walk-in closet and a bedroom floor with mezzanine. The guest house has on the first floor a living room with open kitchen and independent workspace/atelier and on the mezzanine floor currently a gym and bedroom with bathroom en suite.

Layout
The wide entrance door gives you access to the common hall with marble floor, attractively lit niches and beautiful murals by Amsterdam artist Peter Korver. At the beginning of the vestibule there is access to the spacious bicycle storage in the basement and at the end of this vestibule is the access to the back house and also to the guest house located in the garden.

Upon entering the back house you will find a spacious entrance hall, brightly lit during the day by the skylight in the ceiling. The floor, as in all other rooms on this level, is tiled with beautiful Portuguese tiles. The entrance area provides access to a separate heated storage / laundry room with separate wine storage with constant temperature and to the hall with toilet and checkroom. Also from this hall you reach the spacious kitchen. The French doors give access to a large terrace and spacious garden. The kitchen consists of a fixed part with kitchen island and various appliances. The adjacent storage room with vestibule is also accessible from the entrance, so you have direct access to the kitchen with your groceries.

From the hall, a monumental staircase with wood paneling leads to the second floor. There is the still largely original Style Room (Louis XVI style), with high ceiling (over 4.5 meters), marble fireplace and several high mirrors . Three French high inward swinging double doors with a French balcony partition behind offer a beautiful view of the garden. Blackout is by full height wooden sliding panels. En suite a library with library stairs, where light pours in from the tall windows. Throughout the floor is a beautiful herringbone parquet floor with piping.

On the second floor, from the spacious and bright landing you reach the toilet and hallway to the master bedroom. The large bedroom with high windows, marble fireplace, mirror and wood paneling, features a walk-in closet with natural light and bathroom en suite. The modern bathroom has two freestanding sinks, a walk-in shower and a freestanding bathtub from which there is a beautiful view of the garden.

A slender steel staircase provides an entrance from the second floor to the attic floor where the wooden construction immediately catches the eye. A mezzanine offers the opportunity to make the most of this floor. On this floor, under the mezzanine is the technical room. Looking through the window of the dormer has again a fantastic view of the garden and surroundings.

Guest house / studio
The guest house also has its own access from the common corridor and is detached in the garden. It is constructed of white masonry in a blue wooden frame with four double-height window frames, two of which are double French doors. The house was remodeled in 1997 using modern materials such as glass, steel and wood. A draft porch constructed entirely of glass (partly sandblasted, partly clear) has two lockable pivot doors that provide access to the living room with kitchen on one side and the workroom/atelier on the other. The wooden construction of the roof is visible everywhere so that the entire guest house looks like one space. This is also achieved by the open mezzanine that is accessible by two staircases from both the living room and the workspace. The living room has a built-in kitchen with cupboard space and a toilet with vestibule and access to the storage/technical room. The room on the first floor, currently used as a workspace / studio has its own toilet with vestibule and access to the garden, so it could function as an independent workspace. On the mezzanine floor are two rooms with built-in closets, one of which currently serves as a bedroom. These rooms are separated by a bathroom with washbasin and walk-in shower. If desired, the guest house can easily accommodate two or three full bedrooms.

Garden
Upon entering the spacious garden are immediately all the senses stimulated by the wonderful smells and beautiful colors of the plants and the sound of the fountain, the many birds and buzzing bees. There are several seating areas allowing you to enjoy the sun or the view of the stately back facade at different times. There are many mature trees in the garden including a golden rain, prunus, Japanese maple, willow and holly and in the beautifully landscaped borders are various flowering plants and shrubs, such as a rhododendron, rose, hydrangea, laurel and broom. The classic white wooden garden house in the back of the garden has water and electricity. In front of the gazebo is a covered terrace slightly elevated from the garden level. A gravel path with a hedge of conifers on either side, leads to the detached guest house. In the garden, privacy is ensured by the high, mainly overgrown fence.

Surroundings
The canal house is located on the western side of the ring of canals and within walking distance are numerous nice terraces, eateries and special stores. There are nice markets nearby on several days, including an organic market, a fabric market and a vintage market, in short, a perfect location for the lover of the Amsterdam city center.

Layout

The wide entrance door gives access to the common vestibule with marble floor, tastefully lit niches and beautiful murals by the Amsterdam artist Peter Korver. At the beginning of the hallway there is access to the spacious bicycle storage in the basement and at the end of the hallway there is access to the rear of the house and also to the guesthouse located in the garden.

Upon entering the rear house, you will find a spacious entrance hall, brightly lit during the day by the skylight in the ceiling. The floor is, as in all other rooms on this level, tiled with beautiful Portuguese tiles. The entrance room provides access to a separate heated storage/laundry room with separate wine storage at a constant temperature and to the hallway with toilet, cloakroom and staircase cupboard. From this hall you can also reach the spacious kitchen. The original exposed beams in the ceiling breathe the atmosphere of days gone by. Two French windows and a double door offer a view of the garden. The kitchen consists of a fixed part with kitchen island and various appliances. The adjacent storage room with vestibule is also accessible from the entrance, so you have direct access to the kitchen with your groceries.
From the hall, a monumental staircase with wooden paneling leads to the first floor. There you find the original style room (Louis XVI-style), with high ceiling (over 4.5 metres), marble mantelpiece, high mirrors, wall paintings and panelling with subdivisions by Ionic pilasters in which floral motifs have been incorporated. Three French high doors that swing inwards with a French balcony divider offer a wonderful view of the garden. The room can be darkened by the use of full-height wooden sliding panels. Ensuite a library with library stairs, where light falls in from the high windows. The entire floor is covered with a well-maintained herringbone parquet floor.

On the second floor, from the spacious and bright landing, you reach the toilet and the hallway to the master bedroom. Through a frosted glass wall in the bathroom, daylight reaches this hall. The monumental bedroom with high windows, marble fireplace, mirror and wooden paneling, has a walk-in closet with daylight and ensuite bathroom. The modern bathroom has two freestanding sinks, a walk-in shower and a freestanding bath from which there is a beautiful view of the garden.

A slender steel staircase provides access from the second floor to the top floor where the wooden construction immediately catches the eye. A mezzanine offers the possibility of using this floor optimally. On this floor, the technical area is located under the mezzanine. A short staircase leads to the access to the escape staircase located between the front and rear house. Looking through the window of the dormer, you again have a fantastic view of the garden and the surroundings.

Guest house/studio
The guest house has its own entrance from the communal vestibule and the rear house and is detached in the garden. It is built of white brickwork in a blue wooden frame with four double-hung window frames, two of which have double doors. The house was rebuilt in 1997 using modern materials such as glass, steel and wood. A fully glazed (partly sandblasted, partly clear) draught lobby has two lockable pivot doors that provide access to the living room with kitchen on the one hand and the office space/studio on the other. The wooden structure of the roof is visible everywhere, making the entire guesthouse look like one room. This is also achieved by the open mezzanine floor, which is accessible from both the living room and the office space via two staircases. The fact that all floors, as well as the stairs, are covered with wide American pine floorboards and the walls both downstairs and on the mezzanine are painted in the same recurring color contributes to the sense of unity. The living room has a built-in kitchen with cupboard space and a toilet with vestibule and access to the storage/utility room. The room on the ground floor, currently used as an office space, has its own toilet with vestibule and access to the garden, so it could function as an independent work space. On the mezzanine floor there are two rooms with fitted wardrobes, one of which is currently being used as a bedroom. These rooms are separated by a bathroom with washbasin and walk-in shower. If desired, it's easy to realize two or three full bedrooms in the guest house.
Garden
When entering the spacious garden, all senses are immediately stimulated by the wonderful smells and the beautiful colors of the plants and the sound of the fountain, the many birds and buzzing bees. There are several seating areas so you can enjoy the sun at different times or the view of the stately back facade. There are many mature trees in the garden including a "golden rain", prunus, Japanese maple, willow and holly and in the beautifully landscaped borders are various flowering plants and shrubs, such as a rhododendron, rose, hydrangea, laurel and broom. The classic white wooden garden house in the back of the garden has water and electricity. In front of the garden house is a covered terrace that is slightly elevated from the garden level. A gravel path with a hedge of conifers on either side leads to the detached guest house. In the garden, privacy is guaranteed by the high, mainly planted, garden wall. From the north-western gable of the guest house to the plot boundary at the rear of the garden, the garden is designated as a "Keur garden". Since 1615, Keur gardens have enjoyed special legal protection, which has ensured that their special cultural-historical value has always been preserved.

Surroundings
The canal house is located on the western side of the canal ring and at walking distance there are many nice terraces, restaurants, caterers and special shops. Several days a week there are pleasant markets in the neighborhood, including an organic market, a fabric market and a vintage market. In short, a perfect location for the Amsterdam city center lover. The location is easy to reach by car via the Prins Hendrikkade and the IJtunnel. Central Station and all the public transport is within walking distance.
