Amsterdam’s biggest draw may be its UNESCO World Heritage-listed canals, first dug in the 17th century. Dubbed the Venice of the North, the Dutch capital also boasts stately historic architecture—some of which is set right on the waterfront.
For those looking for a (massive) pied-à-terre in this charming city, look no further than this nationally-listed, 1672-constructed beauty located on Keizersgracht (Emperor’s Canal), Amsterdam’s widest canal.
Measuring a width of five windows with a floorspace of 14 by 14 meters (46 by 46 feet), the elegant manse, which is currently divided into three units, features a grand stone staircase, main parlor floor with stunning period details and canal views, a conservatory, and a gorgeously landscaped, private garden that is protected by historic ordinances.
The two floors above, currently apartments, can accommodate four to five bedrooms each, while the top floor includes a roof terrace offering incredible city vistas. With enormous potential to become a majestic home in the center of the city, it’s being offered at €8,250,000, or about $8,573,000, from Knight Frank. Take a gander below.
