Canal house

The visit at the "House Van Brienen" of yesterdays post I will continue today to show you the other parts. To get in was a challenge at the crowded Open Monuments Day. Several canal houses had opened their doors to have a look inside, but the amount of people had to be controlled, so long lines of people were waiting outside. We were lucky with this one, no long queue so we climbed the stairs to the entrance.

The hallway had a marble floor. The rooms to the right you couldn't enter just have a peek inside.
Hubby sccollections had made photos of the rooms so you can watch there.

In the hall was a beautiful mirror.

The patio.

The room I showed you yesterday had big windows with a view at the garden.

The garden with a nice pavillion.

The sink in the garden with a pump. The taps must be of a recent time.

The kitchen in the basement.

With a marble kitchen sink.

And the servants room.
You can look here to see more pictures.

  2. This is quite an impressive structure. Glad to see how light the servants' room looks.

  3. Wow, they lived well! I enjoy all of the pictures ....and SC''s too.

  4. Loved the photo with mirror and the reflections. The first thing I thought of when I saw the garden was one way walkways. One way out and one way back. Thank you for sharing - it was a delightful venture.

  5. I can see why people would line up to see the interior of these houses. They are beautiful.

  6. nice to at least see it through your pictures! :)
