This National Monument from 1671 of approx. 394 m on one of the most beautiful parts of the Keizersgracht near the Leidsegracht, in the middle of a Unesco World Heritage Area, consists of a six-storey front house with a sandstone facade and a three-storey back house. Various original features have been retained throughout the property. The beautiful ceiling paintings which can be seen in the living room were added shortly after the house was built in the 17th century.

The four windows at the front offer a beautiful view of the widest part of the Keizersgracht, as well as the Leidsegracht, the Molenpad and the row of faades on the other side.
Due to its location, the building, which is almost 10 meters wide at the front, tapers towards the rear.
This monumental building is offered in its entirety and empty, stands on its own land and is for the most part equipped with double glazing.

Amsterdam is the largest Dutch city, the capital of the Netherlands, and the nation's financial, business, cultural and commercial capital as well. Since its founding in the 12th century, Amsterdam has evolved from a small fishing village into one of the most important ports in the world during the Dutch Golden Age. Museums like the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh and the Stedelijk also give Amsterdam serious cultural credibility. Amsterdam's compact size, cycling lifestyle, diverse population (more than 170 nationalities), English-speaking natives, abundance of green space, reliable public transportation system and central location within Europe mean it's not only a great place to visit, but also a great place to live.
