A Dutch Actress’s Eclectic Amsterdam Home and B&B Hits the Market for $3.7M

Amsterdam has been a hot travel destination for years, known for its charming architecture, old town feel, exceptional museums, as well as its artistic roots. Near the heart of Amsterdam sits Oosterpark, the first major park laid out by the city. Complete with waterside meadows and landscaped greenery, it’s no surprise that homes are coveted in this area. On the tip of the park sits the upscale and eclectic bed & breakfast Breitner House, which has just hit the market at $3.69 million.

Owned by actress Camilla Braaksma, initially with her late director husband Guido Bouvy, the 4,600-square-foot listing is truly a one-of-a-kind opportunity. Although currently divided into two units, one for personal use and one for the B&B, the circa-1882 structure offers three separate entrances and three addresses so it can even be divided even further to suit the new owner.

Across the home’s three floors, you’ll find four bedrooms and four bathrooms, providing ample space to continue using part of it as a bed and breakfast, or to convert each into a home studio or private office. Filled with bright colors, rustic materials, arched windows, and elegant chandeliers, the rooms ring true to that artsy, eclectic feel Amsterdam is known for. Embracing the European lifestyle easily as well, there are several garden spaces where one can quietly take in the city’s sights and sounds.

The top-level faces the sunny south and ushers in light, perfect for springtime entertaining. For an entrepreneur abroad looking for an adventure, or a local looking to settle down, the home’s potential is unlimited. Karina Nipperus of The Agency Netherlands holds the new listing.
