Surprisingly Sustainable Home with 6 Bedrooms in the Heart of Weesp!
A spacious home in the heart of Weesp, with four floors and yet an energy label A. It is located at Achterherengracht 11a. The original exterior from 1936 has been preserved, while the interior has been completely stripped, redesigned, and all modern comforts and sustainable measures have been applied. Under the renewed gable roof (2020), the cavity walls are excellently insulated and the electrical and sewer systems have been updated. Solar panels and a hybrid heat pump have been installed, with enough capacity for a private charging station. The solar panel installation is fully prepared for the connection of home batteries, so that generated electricity can be stored and later used for personal use.

At this location of a former city farm, a unique place has been realized, with a living area of 164 m², a gross floor area of no less than 216 m², and a volume of 572 m³, all on a plot of 120 m². Extremely suitable for an active family with growing children or a home office. All amenities for daily shopping, relaxation, and public transport are around the corner, while the quiet backyard and the (officially permitted) south-facing roof terrace offer delightful relaxation. This part of the Herensingelkwartier is visited only by local traffic. Both indoors and outdoors, a serene tranquility prevails, partly due to its location in the shelter of the City of Wesopa. The house is located a 5-minute walk from the NS station.

In the spacious hall, with a toilet and storage cupboard, you enter the living room with a semi-open kitchen through the glass door. It is remarkably light here and has a nice flow. The crisp finish, with classic features, invites you to lounge by the large gas fireplace, which can easily be replaced by a 'real' wood stove. From the French doors, you step directly into the sheltered backyard, with a spacious shed. The sleekly designed semi-open kitchen offers all built-in amenities and also opens onto the garden. If desired, a direct entrance via the outside could be realized here.

A wide staircase leads you to the first floor. Around the landing lies the heart of the house, with three bedrooms and the spacious bathroom, with walk-in shower, bathtub, and double sink. There is also a separate toilet. From the rear bedroom, you step onto the lovely roof terrace. Because of this, this bedroom could easily be considered the master bedroom.

The staircase to the second floor is located next to a natural light column, thanks to the large skylights. Here you find two more large bedrooms, at the front and rear of the house. The space on the north side is currently used as a comfortable workspace. The south-facing bedroom has plenty of closet/storage space but can be easily equipped with its own 'ensuite'. Provisions have already been made with plumbing. This facilitates the addition of an extra bathroom and an extra toilet. The shape of the gable roof provides a charming appearance and lots of storage space.

The 'pièce de résistance' is on the attic floor: a fully equipped fitness room with skylights on both sides. Here you look out on two characteristic church towers of Weesp: the former Laurentius Church and the Grote Kerk.

Nothing else reveals that the historic fortress town on the Vecht lies at your feet here, at a crossroads of (water)ways. The many small-scale events certainly contribute to the popularity of the Weesp city area among walkers, cyclists, and water sports enthusiasts. Lovers of gastronomy and culture will also find much to enjoy. The residents of Weesp know their way around the diverse shopping options and a wide choice of restaurants, cozy terraces, and cafes in the many well-preserved monuments. For the sports enthusiasts, Weesp is surrounded by a variety of (water) sports clubs, fitness, and yoga studios. If you're less mobile, you can find a spot at one of the many choirs and music associations, or the creative center at Fort Ossenmarkt. Everyone can enjoy their talents alone or in company.

It's no wonder that many people find the coziness of the numerous events appealing; from water sports and choir festivals, the culinary Weesp Gastvrij, the Lock and Bridge Festival, the famous triathlon through the city, or the open studios during Weespers aan de Wand during the Pentecost weekend. If you want to organize something, Weesp can make it happen.

Growing up in Weesp is a privilege. There is a wide range of education options, from childcare and after-school care to a broad selection of primary schools, and for secondary education, you can go to the Vecht College – with bilingual VWO – or the more practical Casparus College. And what could be more fun than chilling with your schoolmates or sports friends along the banks of the Vecht or at one of the many bastions afterward?

In short, don't wait too long to experience the magic of this special home. Whether you are housebound or rely on connections to Amsterdam, Schiphol, Hilversum, and Utrecht, by train or by road. Be surprised!
