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.
The ground floor is home to a grand living space with a ceiling height of five meters, which makes the room feel much larger.
The room is divided into three zones: a seating area with a fireplace at the front, a dining area, and a bigger sitting area, which is defined by the high gray bookcases.
The wood-slatted feature wall has a hidden door that gives access to the hallway. The vertical wood slats accentuate the grand ceiling height in this room.
At the front of the house is a cozy seating area with a fireplace and a window seat from where you have a great view of the historic Keizersgracht.
The canal house was built in 1665 and while the interior may be modern, these stained glass windows are a nod to the past.
The impressive glass floor adds spaciousness and light. The glass floor connects the front house with the back house where you will find the master bedroom and bathroom.
But we first head downstairs, which is home to the kitchen. The stylish wooden kitchen cabinets add a warmth to the space and the room also connects to the garden.
The master bedroom is a calm space overlooking the garden. the white walls are paired with calming blue color accents.
The master bedroom has its own bathroom which can be closed off by a pair of industrial steel doors with ribbed glass for privacy.
The sober bathroom is cladded with a variety of gray tiles and features a freestanding bath and a walk-in shower.
At the back of the house is a modern garden which was designed by a garden architect. It features a comfortable lounge area, a garden house, and outdoor kitchen, a sauna, and a hot tub.
