Oudezijds Voorburgwal 187 Amsterdam


One of a kind! A double floor apartment measuring 123 sq. m., situated along a canal and located on freehold property! The home is a municipal monument (which was built in 1663 and is featured on many postcards of Amsterdam) and has wonderful 4.7m high ceilings at both the rear and the front. The windows are typical for canal properties and the entire window from floor to ceiling can be opened, creating a terrace-like effect in the living room particularly during the summer months. The apartment has a playful layout in which the various rooms can be used however the owner sees fit. The home also has stunning views of the canal. The interior was designed to look like a minimalist yet modern Italian open-space loft. A useful solution such as sliding curtains could separate the dining room from the rest of the apartment.
