Spaarnekroon – A dream location on the Spaarne river in the heart of Haarlem and including an indoor garage large enough for 2 cars.
This wonderful and impressive corner apartment is part of a stately building and comprises 2 floors. The apartment was completely renovated in 2018 and overlooks the meandering Spaarne river in the heart of the historical city centre of Haarlem, between the Turfsteega and the Helmbrekerssteeg. The amazing and extensive views of the Melkbrug and the Spaarne will have you not only fully enjoy the quiet surroundings but also the great atmosphere and everything Haarlem has to offer.
This stunning, small-scale and unique apartment building on the Spaarne has a lift and was named after one of the gable stones that once adorned the old warehouses. The parking garages are at street level, accessed via roller doors, and the apartment comes with an additional separate storage unit.
Spaarnekroon is located right in the city centre, in one of the bends of the Spaarne and with a wide range of shops, cafés and restaurants, and the Grote Markt with its many outdoor terraces. Arts and culture have always played an important role in Haarlem and you will find cultural venues such as the Stadsschouwburg, the Philharmonie, theatre and cinema De Schuur, and the Frans Hals Museum and Teylers Museum (the oldest museum in the Netherlands) within walking distance.
The nearby beaches of Zandvoort and Bloemendaal, and the dunes in the Kennemerduinen National Park, are wonderful areas for relaxation and recreational activities such as long bike trips. In Spaarnwoude, you will find the largest golf course resort in Europe.
Apart from having your private garage, you can also use the public parking garages De Appelaar or De Kamp. Amsterdam, Schiphol Airport, Alkmaar, The Hague, and Rotterdam are all easy to reach by car (via the nearby arterial roads) and/or public transport.
The entrance to the parking garage is on the Spaarne. The garage has an extra-large roller door and electricity. The secured and modern central lobby is accessed from the Spaarne via a video/intercom system and includes the meter cupboards, large letterboxes, the lift, and the stairwell. The apartment also has 2nd entrance in the large kitchen diner, where double doors lead directly outside to the Spaarne.
