Property description

This most intimate luxury house is located on the very edge of the historic center of Amsterdam, walking distance to the Jordaan.

The Windketel is a free standing octagonal mini-tower - an unique architectural monument, with a beautiful state-of-art interior, that offers a five star comfort in three floors: on the first a fully equipped kitchen and a toilet, on the second floor you have the living room, with light all around the space, through four high windows, and on the last floor a roomy bedroom, with a comfort double bed under the beautiful and original wooden roof timbers. Two skylights provide sufficient light and ventilation. On this floor there is also a romantic bathroom, with bathtub, wash hand basin and a second toilet.

The building itself is a small marvel dated from 1897 and its location makes it an unforgettable experience for your stay in our city: completely sheltered from traffic, in Amsterdam's greenest (eco-) neighborhood.
Perfect for honeymooners and for those looking for something really different!

Area description

The Windketel is part of a unique complex designed to be a 'village within the city' on the grounds of the prestigious former Public Water Company built in 1900. Gardens, winding footpaths and footbridges connect new dwellings and the impressive industrial monuments of the old water works. This quiet enclave is only twenty minutes by foot from Central Station. In addition, it is the end of tram line 10, which takes you straight to Amsterdam's four biggest museums and most important shopping and entertainment districts. And the shops, restaurants, open-air markets, cafes and parks of the famous 'Jordaan' district (built in 1612) are only 10 minutes away by foot. On the neighborhood are diverse choices of shops, cafés, restaurants, the recent renovated cultural park of the former 'Westergasfabriek' and the famous Café Restaurant Amsterdam is only 30m distance from your house.
For those who come with a car, there is the parking garage 'Westersluis' very close by.
