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.

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.
