Truly a unique property! A canal house of approximately 463 m2 divided over four floors, situated on the Keizersgracht, one of the famous canals in Amsterdam. Built as a residence and a merchant’s house, but around 1865 these two buildings were rebuilt and made into a coach house with an upstairs apartment with a 19th century cornice gable. Because the two houses were combined the façade of this house, that used to be known as “The Mill”, nowadays is almost 8 meters wide. At the moment the property is used as a store, workshop and residence however because the designated use is “Gemengd-1” there are several possibilities like residence, office space, gallery etc. or a combination of the afore mentioned.
The property is located in a great location in the center of Amsterdam on the Keizersgracht, nearby the Herenstraat. The house is within walking distance from the Westerstraat, Haarlemmerstraat and Haarlemmerdijk, where you’ll find a great variety of shops for your daily groceries.
Furthermore on Saturdays the famous ‘Noordermarkt’, a farmers market and regular market, can be found on the Lindengracht. The neighborhood also has a wide variety of restaurants, cafes and nightlife including the EYE Filmmuseum, Tolhuistuin, the New De La Mar Theater and ‘’Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam’’.
