Jan Luijkenstraat 16 Amsterdam


This property at Jan Luijkenstraat 16 occupies a prime location in Amsterdamís eminently desirable Museum Quarter, between the Hobbemastraat and Stadhouderskade, and directly opposite the world-famous Rijksmuseum. This charming freehold property of approximately 465 sq m is located in the cultural heart of the Netherlands, right around the corner from P.C. Hooftstraat, Museumplein, Spiegelkwartier, the Concertgebouw and Vondelpark. In short, a location to make the heart of even the most discerning property hunter beat faster. Add a secluded garden of approximately 50 sq m to the mix and this remarkable townhouse offers the rarest of opportunities: the chance to own a property with spectacular views of the Rijksmuseum gardens, just a short stroll away from some of Europeís finest cultural icons.

Jan Luijkenstraat 16 is one of three adjacent chalet-style houses designed by Amsterdam architect Jacob Klinkhamer. The property has 6 floors and offers impressively high ceilings, beautiful fireplaces, a period room and a choice selection of original features.

However, there is still plenty of scope to work with your own interior design team to create your dream home.
