Entire canal house located on a unique location. The house is one of the 231 National monuments in the Amsterdam canal district. The almost 400 year old building is a former warehouse with a gable, build around 1640. In the seventeenth century the warehouse was used as a storage for wooden barrels and trunks, that were loaded unto ships through the Beulingsloot.
At the start of the twentieth century the building served as a mattress manufactory. And since 1980 the building is being used as a residence.
The building borders directly on the Beulingsloot, a small canal that connects the Herengracht and the Singel to each other. This beautiful canal is also called "Little Venice". Because of its location between the water of the canal and the pedestrian alley, the building is situated remarkably quiet and you experience no hindrance from the city noise. A beautiful, quiet spot in the middle of the vibrant city life, with almost everything at walking distance.

Street name explanation:
The Dubbeleworststeeg ("the Double sausage alley") is located between the Herengracht and the Singel in the center of Amsterdam. The street name is often referenced on the internet in lists of remarkable street names, just as for example the Eendekotsweg ("the Duck barf road). And of course it is kind of an odd name. If the alley is named like this because once sausages were made there, then why isn't it just called Worststeeg ("Sausage alley") or Worstenmakersteeg ("Sausage maker alley")? The answer is simple: the alley isn't named after sausages or sausage makers. In fact the alley is named after Lourens Dubbelworst, a distinguished Amsterdammer who once lived in a house on the corner. He died there in 1672. There was also once another Dubbeleworststeeg in Amsterdam: the Damraktsteeg was called the same way until 1922. Most likely Lourens Dubbelworst has also lived there.
