Commanding a prestigious position, right in the centre of Leeuwarden, this house was built by one of the most influential and impressive men of his time. It’s not all glitz and glamour, take a look at the servants’ quarters, and see for yourself. Find out why the house stood empty for long periods of time. Ring the doorbell, get to know the Van Eysinga family, feel the vibes and soak up the atmosphere. You can even sit down at one of the games tables.
If you look at the details of the banisters, you see that each is built identically, piece by piece. A vase is used as the base, followed by a pillar, then an oval medallion with a bow on top and a tasseled ribbon. Does this remind you of something?! Yes indeed, this style reflects the antiquity, the architectural trend of that moment.
