A great opportunity to live in the Utrecht Museum Quarter. This impressive 17th-century monumental canal house, together with the neighbouring house, forms number 17 'De Wereldkloot', because Atlas' sculpture stands with the globe on its shoulders on the roof. The twin house can also be found in miniature in Madurodam.

The richly ornamented canal house with the in Utrecht famous wharf cellar is located at a great location on the Nieuwegracht and has been used as an office building in recent years, but because of the excellent layout it is also very suitable to be used again as a cozy home to be used.

The Museum Quarter is the characteristic southern part of the old town of Utrecht, where the most famous museums of Utrecht, many nice restaurants, trendy wine bars and special shops can be found.

Immediately behind the stately front door you can feel that this stately house from 1619 houses centuries of history. Many authentic style features are cautiously spared, such as ornamental ceilings, marble fireplaces, a unique Jugendstil tiling and stained glass windows. Anyone wandering around this house will be confronted with the rich history of an impressive building.
