Good Tuesday morning! A historic Dutch canal house in the “Hanging Kitchens” district of Appingedam, Netherlands, dating back to the medieval era.
This home is beautifully historic, likely dating back to the 17th century if not earlier. It reminds me a little of a Venetian home, being so close to the canal and with the centuries-old room proportions. The Hanging Kitchens of Appingedam were built to create more space within these homes constructed in the Middle Ages and also provided household access to the canal water for washing and cooking.
From the listing on Funda:
Detached and characteristic canal house in the historic center of Appingedam, in a unique location between the hanging kitchens and with a sunny terrace on the south and on the Damsterdiep. This spacious and attractive house has a total of four floors with many possibilities to enjoy living and combining living with work.
In addition, it is a protected cityscape at probably the most famous place in the pleasant and historic center with all the amenities that Appingedam has to offer. The Overdiep shopping center and the marina are also a short distance away and the N33 (Eemshaven-Assen) and N360 (Delfzijl – Groningen) are also quickly and easily accessible. Appingedam is a particularly attractive city, with a varied range of shops, good healthcare and sports facilities and excellent public transport (including a train and bus station).
