Historic residential, work and retail property in the center of Utrecht.

At the foot of the Dom is a series of historic buildings that once housed the orchard of the Utrecht bishop. Hence the name Kleine Gaard. In line with the Oudegracht, with the same beautiful facades and also with such a famous wharf cellar. The Dom Tower is currently under construction, but will be back in full glory in a while. Up close, even, from the roof terrace of the national monument that we can offer you here. An object for which we actually lack words. Unique or some other superlative simply does not cover the load. We therefore like to let the images speak for themselves and limit ourselves to describing a few details.

In 2000, the building was renovated and renovated from top to bottom. The architect has provided beautiful sightlines and good light everywhere, partly by creating voids and using glass walls in a few strategic places. Modern meets monumental; in our opinion a very successful project.
A luxury clothing store was located on the ground floor. The finish and furnishings are of course geared to this. There is a beautiful wooden floor in a classic herringbone and in the back, next to the pantry, you will see the characteristic windows with rod distribution that you will find on all floors. From the shop you can reach a basement in three parts via a spiral staircase, including a wharf cellar with exit to the canal. There is a toilet and a pantry.

The house has its own entrance. Behind the monumental front door is the hall and a door to the corridor with stairs to the first floor. There you will find the spacious and attractive living room with beamed ceiling, light wooden floor and phenomenal view. Then there is a dining area and open kitchen with a door to a terrace that invites to summer breakfasts, enjoying the sounds of the awakening city center.

Via a special staircase with loft you reach the second floor. The landing gives access to a spacious bedroom / study at the front, where a wood stove enhances the atmosphere on cold days. At the rear is a second room with adjacent sanitary facilities. Japanese (sliding) doors with milk glass are used in various places in the house as an attractive partition and / or to guarantee the right dose of privacy.

On the third floor there is a spacious bedroom with walk-in closet and a very special bathroom with design sanitary in light tones. Here you take a bath under the cocks and look straight into the meter-high ridge. There is also a shower room and an enclosed space for the washing machine.
Finally, the last staircase leads to a roof terrace with the 'light shaft', which provides plenty of daylight on all floors of the house through the voids. Here you sit high above the bustle of the city with the Dom Tower as a neighbor.

About the location we can still report that the Light Gaard is 'in the loop' to the popular Wed.
