Monumental development opportunity on the canal!

An entire canal house of this quality, including a new foundation, and with planning permission for redevelopment into multiple residences including a garden and garden house; this can rightly be called a monumental opportunity.

The monumental canal house Gelderland includes a basement, a ground floor apartment with a spacious garden and a habitable garden house, three intermediate floors and a two-storey apartment with a roof terrace. The property has a rectangular layout of approximately 6 x 14 metres and is situated on 194 m² freehold plot. This project provides excellent opportunities for redevelopment into multiple high-quality residences while maintaining its current monumental character.

Optional layouts:
The ground floor, the basement and the white-plastered garden house, offer a living area of 180 m² as well as the pleasure of a garden of approximately 60 m² in the heart of the city.

Each floor has a minimum floor area of 75 m² with a similar layout of a front room and two back rooms, separated by the staircase. And there is space for a kitchen, bathroom, toilet(s), storage and wardrobes. These floors can be developed into separate apartments for rental or sales purposes or become part of a larger residence to house a nanny for example.

The fourth floor with a layout similar to the three floors below, and attic apartment can be turned into a double upper house with a minimum floor area of 112 m². Next to a roof terrace, the attic apartment offers an extra room, bathroom and spacious storage facilities and a landing featuring the original hoisting equipment as a monumental ornament.

The property is generously endowed with beautiful original details, including natural stone fireplaces, ornamental plastering, frames and other details that elegantly show a decrease in detailing on the higher floors, which was customary for that age.
