This monumental city-residence, a mere one hour-drive from Amsterdam, would perfectly suit those who would love living in a typical Frisian town and love both culture and nature. Franeker offers a rich history, drawing back to the Middle Ages. Besides that, the iconic town is located close to the Wadden Sea, with a rich wildlife and lots of possibilities for recreation. Because Franeker was once a university-city, a time when a lot of intellectuals and professors settled down here, including the great French philosopher René Descartes, it reflects stateliness, integrity and the luxury from the past. We can see this as well in completely and recently restorated Dijkstraat 5, with a surface of 365 square meters. Although it has kept his ambiance, the former owners have been succeeded to transform the building to the interior design and comfort standards of today.
