The Stationsstraat, is located on the dike of the romantic river 't Gein and is "one of a kind". The dike leads you from the old village straight into the beautiful nature of 't Gein. The street is one of the five most characteristic streets of Abcoude and breaths a typical 19th-century village atmosphere. That’s also why almost all buildings at the Stationsstraat are officially protected village scenes.

Due to the construction of this aqueduct, the house is within walking distance of the train station, however the presence of train traffic is hardly noticeable at a short distance.
