Buying a house in a former prison

The Noordsingel is one of the oldest Penitentiary Institutions in the Netherlands. It consists of two buildings: the prison and the courthouse. Furthermore there are stays for the wardens and five wings. The prison cells can be found in three wings: two wings were for men and one for women. Each wing contains 340 prison cells. Not to forget to mention the chapel! Located on the Noordsingel in the district Oude-Noorden. Built in 1866-1872. 

Now the former prison is going through a big change with respect for its history. Walls are breaking down. The prison becomes the Tuin van Noord. The whole complex is turning into apartments and houses surrounded by greenery and open spaces where you can live, work and relax.  Experience the history, taste the freedom.
