Historical research shows that in anticipation of the first explanation, the buildings on the Singel 70-72 were already built, around 1585 when the first part of the west side of the Singel was also built. This part, at the time on the harbor, was the first to be built on and originally they were houses for the well-to-do bourgeoisie. A number of owners of plantations and companies that were originally located here, at the time still outside the Singel (defensive or vesting canal), also bought their own land back from the municipality of Amsterdam. Drawings from that time show two buildings with gable roofs, of unequal size. Around 1700 there are drawings that the two buildings were merged into a very large mansion with the entrance in the middle and two large windows on either side. The roof is then extended. It is not clear when exactly the annex was built and then added. Around 1850, the right-hand building, originally the smaller building of these sister buildings, was converted into a warehouse, whereby a mezzanine floor was built in and the beams were adapted with an entrance on the ground floor. The first floor and basement will then disappear at number 70.

In the 20th century, the buildings had many functions: office, housing, storage of hand carts, and warehouse for a book club. In 1993 the buildings were divided into apartments, then still in their entirety (since 1957) with an office destination, and quite soon afterward most apartment rights were converted into houses, except for the first floor and the basement at number 72.

The location is easily accessible from the Ring A10 via exits S103. There are various public transport options from Nieuwezijds Kolk. And the Central Station is an eight-minute walk away.

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.

Buying an apartment in Amsterdam is different from buying a house or a detached villa. In case of an apartment, you do not only have neighbours to your left and right, but often also above or underneath you. That means the ground on which the property is located belongs to multiple people. This can lead to complications when you’re trying to figure out the extra costs before buying the apartment.
