About our home

We love our home, and we think you might really like it too! Renovated from top to bottom in 2013, we've lived here for nearly 17 years and the house is also the home of a private recording studio and a small record label. The apartment is completely private from the rest of the house (which can be bustling with creativity, or quiet as a temple on any given day) and the renovation included a large master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom of our dreams. There is a second bedroom with a mezzanine sleeping loft, and another en-suite bathroom with shower. And the 3rd bedroom is a very small room the we currently use as our twin's playroom, but it can be configured with a single bed and has nice skylights. On the same floor (upper) is the spacious family-room / reading-lounge / home office, that as well as having our books, a chaise-lounge and a desk, also has a big TV with a DVD player and Apple TV with access to Netflix (US) and etc.

The ground floor of the apartment has the open plan living and dining room, a good kitchen, WC and laundry room. A door opens into the garden and on the south facing patio which is great in the summer, and can of course be used any time the weather permits. There is a patio on both sides of the house and a playground is right next to the garden. There are several other playgrounds in the immediate area as well as paths that connect to the surrounding nature, including a sculpture garden, valley with a river running through it and a pond with a picnic area.
