You will certainly live in this former wine warehouse in the cozy city center of Maassluis. This detached enormous building is anything but contemporary and is located on the characteristic canals. The industrial building was once built for the Steur Brothers and for years lent itself as a warehouse and commercial building for their wine imports. In addition to this historic residence, a coach house and outbuilding have also been developed that can be used for various purposes.
Living on the canals of Maassluis also means having your own berth right in front of the door. Sail through the city and experience Maassluis from the water. But you can also walk to the cozy restaurants and terraces of this historic city center in 5 minutes.
The wine barrels have made way for a 250m2 sleek space. The entire building has recently been completely renovated, creating a workspace annex showroom on the ground floor. This is equipped with underfloor heating that can be set thermostatically. Which, by the way, is extended throughout the building per room. The elongated windows with double glazing provide pleasant light, allowing you to create a nice workspace here. The old steel factory windows give an industrial yet creative atmosphere. In addition to an extra kitchen, 2 toilets have been created. The showroom can be arranged flexibly, entirely according to your wishes.
From this room you walk to the lower garden, which was also recently landscaped. Spend long evenings here with family and friends and enjoy the privacy you have here. To honor the former destination, a spacious grape greenhouse has been placed in the garden. With vines that are decades old, you can grow your own grapes here and it is a nice place to have a drink in both winter and summer. There is a gravel path on both sides of the house.
Characteristic loft of a total of 320m2
Through the hall with stairs you reach the first floor where a space of 250m2 is located. A large modern kitchen of 60m2 has been created here, with a large cooking island with ceramic marble look top. Here too, the old steel factory frames have been used, so that you have a lot of light and a view of the courtyard and the coach house opposite. Enjoy the view of your own garden while you cook for your family and in winter enjoy a cup of chocolate milk by the cozy wood-burning fireplace.
As soon as you enter this living space you will experience that people really live here. Everything is designed for optimal living and relaxation. For example, sliding doors have been chosen everywhere and each room can be adjusted separately in terms of temperature. There is no shortage of space, the central hall of 25 meters long and 5 meters wide provides a connection between all rooms, with a beautiful view from kitchen to living room and vice versa.
The spacious hall is suitable for various purposes. Here you can easily create a home workplace or, like now, a children's play area. Or teach your child to cycle on the gray PVC floor laid in herringbone. Enough space! The wooden beams and high ridge on this floor have been preserved throughout, creating an industrial and spatial atmosphere. The electric skylights over the entire roof can be opened, darkened or closed remotely.
