Yeah. But still..Wouldn't it be totally friggin awesome to live in a house on De Singel that, say, used to be owned by Rembrandt's son? lol
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.
