A Luxurious Amsterdam Canal House with High Ceilings

On one of the historic canals in Amsterdam, you can find this beautifully renovated townhouse with high ceilings and a modern garden. The townhouse is narrow, but by creating living spaces with double high ceilings, they maximized the feeling of spaciousness in the house.

The house is divided over three floors: a basement floor with the kitchen and a bedroom, the ground floor with the living room and the master bedroom, and a first floor with three extra bedrooms. White walls in every room create a calm and bright base to the spaces, which have been warmed up by the clever use of warm textiles or materials.

This canal house in Amsterdam oozes luxury, and if you’re a fan of hotel-style interior design, then you’re going to love this home tour.
