This beautiful spacious apartment is part of a 17th century house which is in the oldest part of historical Amsterdam; the heart of City. Admiral Michiel de Ruyter once was the owner if this beautifully restored house. It is located along the IJ-harbour where the proud ocean traveling vessels were anchored while preparing for their next voyage to the Indies.
The character of the house is defined by the famous Dutch Golden Age Admiral 'Michiel Adriaanszoon de Ruyter'. His cunning seamanship combined with excellent military leadership made him the most successful defender of Dutch merchants sailing the world seas.
We have tried to preserve the unique historical character of the building while calling out the rich history of its most famous formal owner 'Admiral Michiel Adriaanszoon de Ruyter'.
The house is completely renovated, meaning a complete renovation with respect of all ancient details of the building, and a tasteful redecoration that represents style and quality.
As the building is located on a corner, it is very light as it has many windows. And for that you can experience great views on two different panoramas of the city. This is quite unusual in Amsterdam as most of the monumental houses 'lean' to one another and therefore only have windows at the front and backside.
For your information; the stairways are wide and not steep. On both sides of the stairway you have support to hold on.
All the important museums are close and can be reached by foot, bike, tram, car or boat. There is a great variety of restaurants and pubs in the area. The so-called 'bruine cafés' - typical Dutch pubs - are available in great numbers. More on walking distance: The Dam, The Nieuwmarkt, pubs, cinemas, theatres, the Anne Frank House, the Zoo, the red light district, many antique shops, famous art galleries, old churches, old synagogues, Waterloo square, as well as the great shopping streets like the P.C. Hooftstraat, and many many more things to see and do!
On the other side of the harbour you can visit the new Library which is the biggest in Europe. (Also books in many languages available).
The central station is just a nine minutes walk from your
apartment, which makes Schiphol Airport reachable within 30
Other Amenities: Stylish and tastefully decorated and renovated apartment. Great Roof Terrace. Historical building from the year 1650. Spectacular view over the Amsterdam harbour, which is called 'The IJ'. Modern architecture as well as old ships and a replica of a 17th century vessel are part of the panorama. As the house is build on a corner, you also have a fantastic view on a typical Amsterdam canal. This canal is lined by monumental houses and buildings.
