The revival of the alley – area in down town Otrobanda started with this project – the restoration of a block of houses in between four alleys, consisting of multiple units. Purged between the Van Dijksteeg, Schijnwerkerstraat and the Sint Martinsteeg this spacious unit on the ground floor offers three living spaces, four bedrooms and even a small garden.
The entrance of this unit is on the Van Dijksteeg, where a small private corridor leads to the front door and to the garden gate. The house is arranged around the large square living room, with its door going to the garden. On one side is a smaller living room and bedroom, also with doors leading to the garden. The two large bedrooms open directly into the living room. The large bedroom has a brand new air-conditioning unit. The smallest bedroom is accessible through the largest bedroom and provides a snug children’s bedroom, or can be converted into a spacious walk-in closet. To the back of the building is the kitchen with traditional build-in chimney and enough space for a family style dinner table.
Since the house is situated on the corner of three alleys, this means that there is ample light and air flowing in from all directions. The neighborhood is very tranquil with a family atmosphere.
