The layout of the house is unique, the various monumental details give a beautiful atmosphere to the whole. The facade, the platform, the stairs, the marble fireplace, original beamed ceilings, etc. In addition, the view is impressive.

The house is uniquely located in the heart of Amsterdam, within the World Heritage Canal Belt area and next to the Jordaan. All amenities such as good restaurants, trendy cafes and terraces, a wide variety of shops, supermarkets and popular local markets are within easy reach and Central Station is a 5-minute walk away

The house has two entrances, the first takes you down a staircase to the basement. At present, this space with a headroom of 2.12 m is largely used as a storage/laundry room, here it is easy to create a living or working space with minor adjustments. The rear room is currently used as a study/music room and has a separate toilet with hand basin and the stairs to the first floor.

Via the beautiful original stone platform you reach the entrance on the first floor, via the marble (original) clad hall you have access to the attractive kitchen and dining room which are separated from each other by double doors. The dining room has windows to the canal with beautiful views. At the rear is the kitchen which gives you access to the cozy patio/inner garden (west). The SieMatic kitchen is equipped with a granite countertop, plenty of cupboard space and various built-in appliances such as: an extractor hood, 4-burner gas hob and dishwasher, oven, microwave and fridge with separate freezer.

First floor: through the authentic staircase from the hall you reach the spacious living room. Due to the large windows both at the front and back, this space has a beautiful light. The 3 French balconies, on the canal side, have large patio doors. All this is completed by the beautiful details such as the natural stone French fireplace (monumental), the original ceiling beams and the beautiful staircase which takes you to the second floor.

Second floor: the landing with the large bright bay window gives you access to the two bedrooms and the bathroom. The bedroom at the rear is very spacious and partly has a ridge height of more than 4 meters. The beams of the roof construction are visible here.

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.
