The Central Station and public transport facilities are within walking distance (10 minutes or less). This wonderful residence is a listed national monument and forms part of the Unesco World Heritage Site (canal area). In 1976 a plaque with the text ‘nooit weer’ (never again) was inserted in the facade.

The BASEMENT has a separate streetside entrance and is also accessible from the sitting room above, at the back.

The SECOND FLOOR also has three spacious (bed-)rooms, a second bathroom and third toilet. The room at the back can be reached by a spiral staircase at the back of the house; the other rooms are accessible via the staircase at the front.
The beautiful, large LOFT – leading to a roof terrace – currently includes a kitchen and sitting area (+ boiler cupboard). The additional attic has plenty of storage space.
The property as a whole makes a well-maintained impression, although the interior is slightly outdated. There are plenty of options to create another layout in accordance with your personal taste and preference.
