MAGICAL three-story home next to Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) with spectacular views in Delft's charming historic city center. Enjoy access to cafes, restaurants, and shopping just steps away from your own fully-renovated "bovenhuis". Just a 10-minute walk to the Delft train station.
This home is filled with light and charm - and is sure to make your visit to The Netherlands extra special! Step out the front door directly into the historic beauty of Delft to enjoy cafes, restaurants, and local sights. Or take a 10-minute walk along beautiful cobbled streets to the train station for a day trip to The Hague (10-minute ride) or to Amsterdam (1-hour ride). And always feel at home coming back to this three-story haven with sweeping rooftop views from the top floor - and entertaining panoramas of daily life in Delft from the first and second floors. Be sure to keep an eye out for the resident swans in the canal just outside, as well as the neighbor taking their pet pig out for a stroll.
