Charming house on a former city canal in the heart of Leiden.

When you stand in front of the house, you immediately notice the entrance with double doors and arch. Very charming and it immediately gives the house its own unique look. The arch is typical for an old warehouses and breweries, but don't be fooled! The facade has been modified several times over the course of time and only took on this shape at a later date. There used to be a small storage / garage downstairs and there was a separate entrance for the upstairs apartment. In any case, the house has known many layouts and together with the building at number 30 it used to form one whole. This is reflected in the floor plans that differ on each floor and sometimes link up with the neighbors' homes and vice versa.

Entering through the 'gate' you enter a house that can be modified in many ways. For example, you could convert the ground floor into a wonderfully large living and dining kitchen that you can also use as a living room. This way you have three bedrooms upstairs. More traditional for these types of buildings is to place the living room on the 1st floor and have a kitchen, office and bicycle storage downstairs. With this last option you will still have two very spacious bedrooms.

The rooms on the 1st and 2nd floor are located across the entire width of the building with a view of the South and the Hooigracht. As a result, all rooms are wide and with a lot of light. The 3rd floor is the icing on the cake: a very high open space with a ceiling of 3.5 meters high, the old beam construction still visible and access to the roof terrace. A lovely outdoor spot in the middle of the surrounding old buildings and with a view of the church. The building is not a monument, so this makes it a lot easier to moify it and renovate it entirely to your own taste.

Living in this location offers many possibilities. On the one hand, you can fully enjoy everything that the old center of Leiden has to offer: cultural, culinary and historical. The city center is slowly being made car-free, so that the beauty of the alleys, canals and historic buildings is respected. Not ideal for car owners, but you can park your car on the parallel Middelstegracht or in the parking garage on the Hooigracht, which is only a two-minute walk away. The costs are limited for residents: only € 48 per quarter. And in front of the door you can take the bus and you will be at Leiden CS or Lammeschans station in no time.
