Amsteldijk Zuid 138 "the former St Josephschool" in Amstelveen
Unique detached school building on the Amstel in the delightful village of Nes aan de Amstel.
The school building (536 m²) was transformed in 2014 into an unusually beautiful, completely rebuilt residence, complete with, among other matters, ground heat recovery, cooling system and Domotica (home automation). It is located very close to Amsterdam and Amstelveen with a wide view over water and meadows, on a gorgeous plot of land of approximately 1295 m².
This is a very unusual building, a local authority monument, built in 1921 and which remained in use as an educational establishment until 1975. After 2014 it was completely rebuilt/transformed into a unique residence with unimpeded and wide views from every side over the Amstel in front of the door and the meadows beyond.
Living on the Amstel with the unique characteristic of having a lot of land in this wonderful ‘countryside’ location, offers a lovely way to live. The enormous plot of land offers you everything you could expect, an exceedingly spacious main residence, large garden, meadows and fields, plenty of parking spaces and a jetty in front of the door.
In addition to the details on the façades that were saved, there are many historical items to be found on the inside. The high rooms (the former classrooms, with a height of 4.75 m2) contribute even more to this special feeling of spaciousness.
The residence has three storeys, with the entrance to the living rooms (3 of them) on the ground floor and the bedrooms and playroom on the first and second floors. You may descend from the terrace at the rear of the building down the wooden stairs next to the living/dining room, and into the garden.
There are four amazing bedrooms on the first floor, one of which has a walk-in wardrobe, three bathrooms and a laundry area. The bedrooms have fantastic views over the fields at the rear of the building and an unimpeded view over the Amstel at the front.
There is one huge space on the second floor that is currently being used in its entirety as a playroom.
The property is easily accessible: a few minutes in the car to Amstelveen (via the Nesserlaan or Amsteldijk Zuid) and Ouderkerk. The A9, A4, A10, A2 motorways as well as Schiphol and Amsterdam are also very easy to reach quickly.
