Keizersgracht 18  
 
6 high-end apartments in a monumental canal house. The Keizersgracht is often called the most beautiful canal because of its many stately buildings, which Keizergracht 18 certainly belongs to! It is an iconic building at the beginning of a quiet part of the canal located in an agreable part in the middle of the Amsterdam center. As the plaque with the word 'Bordeaux' already suggests, the Keizersgracht 18 / 18A building was built for a wine merchant. In 1886, wine wholesaler B.A. Ripping & Co took over the stately house built in eclectic architectural style. The warehouse was located in the basement and the offices on the ground floor. 
 
The upper floors have always been used as living space. The quality of the appartments is clearly visible. Generous ceiling heights, outdoor spaces and in various places the monumental details are still omnipresent: en suite doors, bay windows, paneling, marble fireplaces and beam constructions for the roof. All were carefully restored. The building is a municipal monument.
