    Out of boredom, I had a look at what your average Amsterdam canal house would cost. Not even that much compared to the more upperclass neighbourhoods in 't Gooi...But still...Holy sh1t.

    Those old buildings next to all the canals. Some are literally as old as our country.

    A friend of my Mom bought one over the course of 30-40 years, floor by floor.
    It has a ton of problems and the maintenance costs are quite substantial.

    The house was totally awesome. That is for damn sure (and coincidentally it was on de Singel)
    aside from initail costs, I wouldn't do it based on maintenance costs, etc. unless all the structural issues, etc. had already been taken care of before hand.

    I bet any herenhuizen without significant structural issues carry an insane pricetag, if they're on the market at all. A single floor is expensive enough already, imagine what a house would cost as a single lump sum purchase.
