Nieuwegracht 67

3512 LG - UTRECHT

Description

The Nieuwegracht was dug at the end of the 14th century. An important urban planning intervention in medieval Utrecht. It is now the quiet of the two main canals that run through the lively city center and here stands this special national monument. It has a rich history of renovation and expansion since the front part was built as a brother's house in 1500. The rear part was added later, at the end of the 16th century. The most recent addition dates from the last century and involved the connection of several adjacent cellars. All this resulted in a thirty-meter-deep building with no less than 650 m2 of living space, divided into very surprising spaces and functions.

The house is located on the most beautiful canal in Utrecht in the Museum Quarter. The name of the district already explains it, various (national) museums are located in the immediate vicinity. In addition, there are 3 private schools (both primary and secondary education) and many shops that form the city center of Utrecht within walking distance. Despite the central location, roads (A12, A27 & A28) are easily accessible.

The monumental front door is impressive, but it by no means suggests how many square meters of luxurious living space are behind it. The high skylight provides plenty of light in the spacious hall and wardrobe. The 'artificial gutter' enlivens the walk to the secret annex. There are two living / working rooms on your right, one of which has a view of its own private patio. In the transition from front to back house you will find a beautiful 17th century spiral staircase that runs from basement to attic. Via a few bright red painted steps you enter the beautiful style room, where large windows with rod division, interior shutters and window seats offer a view of the courtyard. Above the marble fireplace and on the high ceiling (4.40 m) you can see rosettes and reliefs.

We are happy to take you to basement level. First of all to the kitchen with a classic look through the robust fireplace, marble floor, white on the wall and the vaulted ceiling. All this is combined with modern cooking comfort and luxury built-in appliances. There is an open passage to the dining room where the fireplace is a real eye-catcher. Not only in color, but also in size. Watching a movie after dinner? There is a passage to the private cinema, so it is a matter of descending a few steps to the next room. The wine cellar can also be found in this part of the house.
Deeper into the wharf cellar, towards the canal, you can extensively recreate on the marble floor of the party cellar. Then we find an excellently equipped spa with several rooms. You can enjoy internationally oriented here; There is both a Turkish marble bath as well as a Finnish sauna, plus a spacious relaxation area. In the intermediate basement you will not only find a freestanding bubble bath, but also a triple shower facility.
We end with the ultimate surprise: the gigantic swimming pool. The Italian marble, the pillars, but especially the special arch bridge that spans the water, inspired by Monet's bridges, form an impressive combination. Detail: the pool is cleaned using ultraviolet light so that little chlorine is required. Next to the pool you will find an exit to the ancient wharf and the water of the Nieuwegracht.

Back upstairs. Wooden herringbone floors, paneling, gold-plated niches and marble fireplaces; You will find it all in this house, but the most awe-inspiring and yet modest remnant of earlier times is a mural / fresco with people, animal figures and a landscape dating from 1535 on the floor of the front house, in what now functions as a master bedroom. The adjoining bathroom consists of two parts; a freestanding bath by Philippe Starck, stained glass windows and the presence of patio doors to a balcony characterize the one part. A few steps down is a luxurious marble shower room. There are also two wardrobe / dressing rooms with plenty of closet space on this floor, plus a separate toilet.

The second floor consists of a spacious landing, four (sleeping) rooms, a second bathroom and a separate toilet room. A balcony and a generous terrace form the outdoor areas, from which you have a spectacular view of the city. A staircase higher, the attic extends twenty meters long over the entire building. You will find several spaces, including a photo lab.

The city garden annex courtyard has a Mediterranean look with the white walls. Ivy gives it a green touch and on long summer evenings you can light a cozy fire in the outdoor fireplace.
