Melis Stokestraat 18a



Living in a former school building with the old schoolyard as your backyard!

This is now possible at Melis Stokestraat 18A in Utrecht. This unique spacious family home located in a former school building is located on the south side of the Tuinwijk district within walking distance of the center and within cycling / walking distance of the central station.

In the years 1929/1930, a characteristic 1930s school building was built in this street by architect Willem Maas in Amsterdam school architectural style. Until the turn of the century, this building has always been used for educational purposes. The building was vacant from about 2005. In 2006 it was decided not to demolish the building because of its atmospheric monumental character, but to transform it into six large houses.

The old atmosphere of the building has been well preserved. This starts at the communal entrance with high ceilings, mosaic tiles and a large granito floor. The hall runs the full width of the building and gives access to the five former classrooms that have now been converted into five residential houses.

Number 18A is located at the end of the hall and consists of 2 rooms and the attic of the old school that have been converted into: hall, toilet, living room and kitchen (on the ground floor), two bedrooms and a spacious bathroom on the first floor and a large landing with two bedrooms and a second bathroom on the attic floor. The rooms on the ground floor and the bedrooms on the first floor are particularly bright because of the large windows and the high ceilings. From the spacious living room on the ground floor, French doors have been made to the former schoolyard, which has been transformed into a large, green, enclosed garden with a detached wooden shed and a back entrance.

In short: not standard living in a beautiful location with the atmosphere of an old 1930s school building.


Ground floor
The entrance to the school building is on the street side. The front doors of the various houses are located on the indoor, original school corridor with granito floor and wall tiles. Through the front door you enter the hall with stairs, spacious toilet with fountain, wardrobe and access to the living room. The spacious, bright living room with wooden floor and large windows is located on the south. From the open kitchen you can look into the sunny, deep backyard. The garden also has a back entrance.

On the first floor there are two bedrooms, including the master bedroom. From this large bedroom there is a beautiful unobstructed view towards the old town, this room also has a lot of closet space. Behind the master bedroom is a spacious bathroom with all amenities: bath, double sink, shower and toilet. What used to be the toilets are now cupboards with connection for the washing machine and preparation for tumble dryer and a cupboard with central heating boiler. Some characteristic features from the 'school days' have been preserved on this floor, including stained glass accents.
