Exquisitely charming, multi-purpose canal house with a beautiful and expansive south-facing garden and bell gable. This authentic, welcoming canal house has a GFA of 588 sqm and an NFA of 471 sqm with an elevator is ideal for dual occupancy.

This is a listed national heritage building (Rijksmonument) dating back to approximately 1694, renovated with respect for the original character. Freehold property.

The building is comprised of a canal-facing house and a rear annex. The canal-facing house has five full floors and an attic. The rear annex spans four full floors and an attic. A specific feature is the individual residential unit on the fourth and fifth floors which can be accessed separately by elevator. The canal-facing house features a large ground-floor study at the front.

The ground floor includes two studies and a spacious yet inviting kitchen/lounge at the rear that opens to the garden. The kitchen accesses the wine cellar.

The large south-facing garden is sunny and can easily accommodate a garden house.

On the first floor of the canal-facing house is a stunning period room which was restored under the supervision of architect de G. Prins. This room has space for a grand piano and has 3.60m tall ceilings and a fireplace. Due to the low window sills and three canal-facing windows, the natural daylight entry is exceptional and underscores the appeal of this room.
In the rear annex is a large bedroom with French doors to the roof deck and a private bathroom with a bathtub.

The third floor includes two bedrooms, both with private bathrooms, and a bright living room overlooking the canal.

The fourth floor of the rear annex accommodates a romantic bedroom with a private shower and a separate restroom.
The individual apartment, completely separate apartment unit begins on the fourth floor and can be accessed by elevator. The apartment spans two levels, an attic and has a terrace at the rear. The living room and open-plan kitchen are both on the fourth floor, the top floor encompasses two sizeable bedrooms and a central bathroom. The attic floor features a restored crane for hoisting.
The sunny garden faces south and spans a length of 19 meters. The garden can be accessed from the kitchen/lounge and via the extension off the kitchen.

Situated in Spiegelbuurt district, on a quiet, residential stretch of Keizersgracht, nearby Spiegelstraat, Rijksmuseum and Amstelveld.

Excellent public transportation connections, including the Noord-Zuidlijn metro and numerous tram lines.

Within walking distance of all amenities, and a wide range of cultural venues and outstanding restaurants.

More information

MVA neighbourhood information: Grachtengordel-Zuid

Area south is an area where you can reside, work or relax. A remarkable fact is that more people are working is this area rather than living there. Alongside the Grachtengordel you can find several big offices, but also residences. Area South is well known for its cultural facilities. Leidseplein and Rembrandsplein are examples of parts within the southern area which are internationally well-known outgoing plazas. In the upcoming years big renovations are planned within the area, for example the renovation of Leidseplein and the transfer of the new metrostation Vijzelgracht.

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.
