Built in 1740 by a wealthy merchant, the house, which is an equidistant 10-minute walk from the Royal Palace and the Rijksmuseum in central Amsterdam, was fully renovated in 2011. It consists of the main residence, which fronts the canal, and a connected, separate “back house,” which was originally built as servants' quarters. The grand first floor includes tromp l’oeil ceiling paintings by the contemporary artist Peter Korver, marble floors and wainscoting, plus intricate wood details.
