Top category canal house of approximately 337 m² with living comfort and allure at the level of the 21st century, located on one of the most beautiful parts of the Keizersgracht. The entire building was renovated 3 years ago, under architecture, where no effort was spared and all conceivable modern facilities were added, invisibly, under architecture. With respect for the character of the building, this large-scale renovation combines beautiful authentic details with modern luxury and 'state of the art' technology. For example, this special canal house, equipped with a glass elevator for the 5 floors, is the latest home automation / home automation and all rooms can be individually cooled and heated. The heat pump and solar panels ensure that this first climate-neutral national monument is completely ready for the future. Of course, the building is also provided with a new foundation. The canal house was built in 1657 by order of a merchant and has since known several residents and destinations. One of the prominent residents was Ambrosius Perling, a so-called master writer, his work can be seen in the Rijksmuseum. When the current owner acquires the property in 2015, the first plan is a small renovation to make the 4 separate homes into 1 whole. The ultimate assignment to the architect will be 'to prepare the building for the next 100 years'. The entire process of the renovation and permits took no less than 3 years, from November 2015 to September 2018. The result is impressive in every way! The current layout provides for a large, modern open kitchen with adjoining dining area. The glass conservatory, with sliding doors that can be fully opened, gives access to the sunny, deep, rainproof garden with garden house, on the South East. The classic garden house is equipped with a pantry. On the first floor at the rear is an impressive sitting room with a height between 4 m and almost 7 m. The wood-burning fireplace and the classic, high windows give this room a cozy atmosphere. At the front on the first floor is a spacious room, currently used as an office, with a magnificent view of the Keizersgracht. The basement provides a wine cellar, laundry room and plenty of storage space. On the floors are 3 spacious bedrooms, all equipped with a bio ethanol fireplace and 2 bathrooms.
