Our apartment is right in the center of the center of Amsterdam. Just 100 meters walkingdistance from the famous Dam square. Also Central station and Anne Frankhuis are very nearby.
The famous canals are very quiet and truly beautiful. But in short walking distance the city is vibrant and alive: When the sun is shining, the terraces quickly become filled, the best shops are nearby (for example Bijenkorf with Hermes and Luis Vuitton shops) and a lot of museums are close by.
On February 1, 1999, the Dutch government decided to qualify the inner city, the canals of Amsterdam, as a monument, a protected inner city view. The girdle of canals (ranging from the Singel Canal up to the Prinsengracht Canal) is a historically important part of this region, and it is one of the city's most attractive sights.
Since 2010 the canals are even made Unesco World Heritage.
The girdle of canals starts at River Amstel and ends at Brouwersgracht. One third of the houses along the canals (grachtenhuizen) were built before 1850. During the 17th Century the city extended its boundaries, and canals were shaped in a girdle around the oldest part of Amsterdam to accommodate wealthy tradesmen and burghers. First the Singel Canal was dug out, then the Herengracht, Keizersgracht and, last of all, Prinsengracht.
In the middle of the old city center with all major attractions at walking distance, you would expect this place to be noisy. Luckily it is the exact opposite: the quiet gardens are a perfect hideaway from the hustling and bustling city life…

Seb purchased this villa in 2011
Why Seb chose Old Center
We loved the situation of this Monument: right on the famous Singel canal and with Dam square just 200 meters away, it is the perfect basis to explore the old city center by foot, bike or boat! Even as it is so centrally located, it is still a very quiet and peaceful place between the canals and the beautiful gardens.
What makes this villa unique
Lovely decorated home with spacious living room and very high ceilings. Bulthaup designer kitchen and Cocoon sanitaryware throughout and some designer pieces. Our quiet small garden is perfect to relax after a day of sightseeing.
