Happy Monday Escapists! A historic Dutch home circa 1675, located on a canal in picturesque De Rijp, Netherlands.
This home feels so classically Dutch, from the pointed trimmed roof all the way down to the shelving style in the living room. I feel like it could use some loving work to restore it, so much potential to transform the upstairs and attic into stunning space. De Rijp is a beautiful small town and located only 30 minutes from Amsterdam!
From the listing on Funda:
This national monument is located in the middle of historic De Rijp, with the back facing south on the Tuingracht. Complete with sun terrace and storage room. Originally 17th century, in the 19th century with a masonry facade and restored in the eighties of the last century. The entrance hall with its authentic straight staircase to the first floor also allows you to go through to the living room in the longitudinal direction of this fine house. Behind the kitchen room with granite worktop and sink. Upstairs 3 bedrooms and a spacious bathroom with bath, shower, toilet and sink. And upstairs in the attic a huge space that you can furnish and use according to your own taste. Surroundings: De Rijp is centrally located in a beautiful green polder area, which you can enjoy as the new owner, between the large cities of Alkmaar and Purmerend. Amsterdam just over 20 km. De Rijp is a village that still has many daily amenities within walking distance, excellent catering establishments and there is an excellent bus connection with, among others, Amsterdam, Purmerend and Alkmaar. Worth knowing: – year of construction of the house according to the municipal basic administration: 1675 – Located in a protected townscape – National monument – construction drawings from construction archive available – Living area 90 m2 and 30 m2 other indoor space (after some adjustments easy to use as living space) – Heating and hot water through High Efficiency C.V.
