The home of Benjamin Moser and Arthur Japin is a five-story, 2,690-square-foot Dutch town house in Utrecht, The Netherlands and was recently featured in The New York Times. Built in 1600, the home is "a registered building of the highest order" and much of the space (and certainly the exterior) are respectful of its history...

The couple's vast book collection is evident in almost all the rooms, including the attic which was refurbished to house the majority of the collection. Much of the furniture is 19th-century Dutch from Mr. Japin's family.

The 17th-century Delft tiles line the walls in the bedroom. The space was originally the kitchen.
