Wonderfully beautiful canal house with allure, in the middle of the historic town centre of the fortified town of Gorinchem. With a property like this it is like having the best wines, they have to mature to taste. And that taste is in it, down to the smallest detail.
Rightly unique to this canal house - you can also call it a 'palazzo' an urban villa with the atmosphere of a five star boutique hotel - is the ample parking on its own ground and a high end outbuilding in the backyard, which according to your preference can be used for example as a mancave, atelier, privateéoffice or guesthouse.
You shouldn't talk about special objects like this, you have to experienceá them. We would therefore like to invite serious candidates for a noncommittal viewing.
In the old centre of Gorinchem you will find this exceptional city palace from 1735. The rich citizens lived in the beautiful houses on the Appeldijk. It was once a tile factory and until the end of the last century the house served as an office bookstore, with the current imposing façade dating from 1902. In the meantime it has been transformed into a unique urban villa that is unparalleled. Gorinchem is a beautiful thirteenth-century fortified town on the border of the province of Brabant and South Holland. The city is surrounded by a beautiful green and water-rich landscape. In addition, it has many amenities and is located very favourably in relation to important cities such as ’s-Hertogenbosch, Rotterdam, The Hague and for example Utrecht.
This finely restored national monument contributes to the rich history of the city. Throughout the house several interior parts have been restored including the imposing stucco, the fireplace parts, the wood carvings in the staircases and the present doors. In the city palace it is pleasant to stay because of the consistently applied color palette, the modern conveniences and the exceptionally high level of finish where a good mix is found between the wishes of today and the architecture of yesteryear. Highlight of the city villa is the truly unique staircase with richly decorated stucco work and the present skylight that will pleasantly surprise everyone.

Eternal beauty, a compliment that certainly applies to this beautiful property.
