Property description

Feel on top of it all in this stunning penthouse with large roof terrace in the “Pijp”, a 19th century part of Amsterdam just south of the historical city center.

The apartment’s amenities, furnishing & decorations are of the highest possible degree and the roof terrace will offer you a stunning view over Amsterdam.

The Museumplein with the Rijks Museum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum are just a short stroll away, as is the Spiegel Quarter, great for antique shopping. But when you tire of all this culture, the lively Leidseplein with it pubs and discos is within walking distance.
