Build in typical dutch architecture, this house offers a lot of tasteful details. Beginning with the communally furnished front garden with chestnut trees, rose borders and some charming wooden bridges. The houses themselves offer some beautiful details, with original shutters, red masonry with extruded joints, multiple decorative brickwork and striking wooden dormer windows. No wonder one want to preserve this view.

The living room is definitely one of the most beautiful features of this house, with original en suite doors, high ceilings with decorative ornaments and the grand view at both front and the rear. The spacious kitchen and the underlying storage cellar are connected to the living room. In 1978 the house was extended with a generous storage and a bathroom.
First floor: landing with separate toilet, loft ladder to the spacious attic, a small bathroom (shower and sink), two smaller bedrooms and a spacious master. All with a fantastic view. The generous master at the front can be split into two bedrooms and also the two bedrooms at the rear can easily be transformed into one spacious bedroom. Of course this entirely dependent on your personal wishes.
