Where is it?


The house is very quiet and has no direct neighbours. It borders a nature reserve and the roe deer, pheasants and hares are regularly spotted. Storks, geese and ducks are regular guests in the adjacent lowlands. The large garden (2 hectares) is very accessible and with its fruit trees and vegetable garden (conservatory) also pleasant during the harvesting period. Enjoy the fruits of the moment!

Shopping centres can be found in Antwerp, Hasselt and Leuven. You can do your daily shopping in Balen/olmen. All within a radius of 6km!
