Hooftstraat.This unique property has pride of place in the centre of a symmetrical row of townhouses which, together, have been granted protected monument status by the municipality. That central spot makes the views from the rear of the building particularly impressive.Within walking distance you will find public transport connections, multi-storey car parks, Vondelpark, the Concertgebouw and a variety of restaurants and entertainment options. In short, you will be shielded from the crowds, but within easy reach of all that Amsterdam has to offer.The grand entrance, featuring a marble vestibule, opens into an impressive hall, also decorated with marble. On the right side of the hall is a door leading to the office, situated at the front of the property.
