About our home

Our loft-style home is a recent modern renovation of an old farm building. It is a very spacious house making as much as possible use of natural lighting. The living area is one big space with integrated kitchen area, fitted with modern appliances ( dishwasher, oven, microwave). The kitchen island is vary spacious and is the center of the living area, perfect for an aperitif. The dining table sits up to 8 people.

In the living area there is a television, with Netflix and Apple TV. And a decoder to watch cable TV. Furthermore downstairs, there is a cosy study, ideal for relaxing and reading a book from the large library, and a toilet. Here there is also a foldable double bed for extra sleeping options.

Upstairs there is a master bedroom, with windows on both sides, one of them with a view down into the living area and the garden. There is also a spacious bathroom (with bath and walk-in shower), and two bedrooms. One has a double bed, the other one has a foldable single bed and a toddler bed. There is also a secondary bathroom with a shower.

Centrally in the house there is an atrium, providing natural light throughout the house and the two floors. In the summer this is ideal for sitting outside to gaze up to the stars.

We have a very spacious garden, with a large terrace and garden furniture. In the back of the garden there are a few trees, ideally for climbing and hanging a hammock. They also provide lovely shade when it gets hot.
