About our home

WE HAVE A LOVELY HOME (210M2). IT IS VERY BIG; WITH A 3 STOREY BUILDING THAT WE LIVE IN AND THEN A GALLEY KITCHEN THAT LEADS TO THE TWO STOREY BUILDING WHICH HAS THE DINING ROOM AND AN UPSTAIRS GRANNY FLAT WHICH WE USE FOR VISITORS (KING SIZE BED AND BATHROOM WITH RAIN SHOWER ETC). THE BUILDING WAS BUILT IN 2004 AND INCLUDES UNDERFLOOR HEATING, LOVELY BATHROOMS AND LOADS OF SPACE.

THE MASTER BEDROOM HAS A KING SIZE IRON 4-POSTER BED BY ENGLISH IRONMONGER ‘NIGHTS IN IRON’ AND A LOVELY BATHROOM WITH CORNER BATH AND RAIN SHOWER. THE CHILDRENS FLOOR IS ON THE TOP FLOOR WITH TWO FAB ROOMS AND A LIBRARY SEPARATING THEM.

WE HAVE A 5 AND 7 YEAR OLD SO LOTS OF TOYS FOR THIS AGE GROUP. THE HOUSE IS BEAUTIFULLY SITUATED IN A RESIDENTIAL AREA OF THE HAGUE BUT VERY CLOSE TO DELFT TOO (WE JUST HAD BRUNCH IN DELFT TODAY WHICH IS A LOVELY SUNDAY TRADITION IN THE NETHERLANDS), PUBLIC TRANSPORT IS EXCELLENT AND COMPARATIVELY CHEAP. THE MAIN TRAM LINE IS AT THE END OF OUR STREET (3min walk) THAT LINKS TO THE CENTRAL TRAINS AS WELL AS DIRECT LINK TO DELFT AND THE HAGUE (BOTH REACHED WITHIN 25 MINS DOOR TO DOOR). WE ARE ALSO ON THE MAIN MOTORWAYS FOR CONTINENTAL EUROPE (BELGIUM/FRANCE/GERMANY ALL WITHIN COUPLE OF HOURS). THE HAGUE IS A BEAUTIFUL CITY, THE CITY OF PEACE, WHICH HAS CITY LIFE AS WELL AND THE BEACH AND IS SURROUNDED BY BEAUTIFUL TOWNS, VILLAGES AND COUNTRYSIDE. WE ARE LOOKING FOR FAMILY HOUSESWAPS WHERE OUR SWAP PARTNER WILL ENJOY ALL THAT OUR HOME HAS TO OFFER AND THIS BEAUTIFUL REGION. WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT ENJOYING YOUR HOME TOO AND LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE AREA YOU LIVE IN AND ALL THAT IS ON OFFER HERE TOO. LET’S PLAN A FABULOUS MUTUAL ADVENTURE! (I’LL ADD MORE HOUSE PHOTOS IN THE COMING DAYS :).

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Ypenburg is a suburb of The Hague. Nestled within 200 yards of the main tram lines, you can access The Hague centre within 25 minutes, Delft in 20 minutes and Amsterdam within about an hour (Schipol airport in Amsterdam in about 50 minutes to 1 hour too). The neighbourhood is family friendly and surrounded my children’s playing parks and a lake just across from our street. Our neighbours are Dutch and very lovely. There is free on street parking. There is Ypenburg centre which has all main shopping requirements including local butchers, bakers, cobbler, pharmacy etc. It is about a 10 minute walk away.

Buzzy restaurants
Both The Hague and Delft have a cafe outdoor culture with a plethora of lovely bars and eateries to meet all budgets. Take a look at Trip Advisor to see the sheer volume available! There are also some lovely take outs which deliver and we’ll leave details of these.
Bit of culture
Art galleries, museums and beautiful churches abound in all the local towns and cities. There are also great theatres and family events. Check out The Hague online as well as the city website for details in English.
Walks in the park
Loads!
Spot of exercise
All over - this is bike central!
Day tripping
Oh can be in Belgium, France or Germnay within a couple of hours. Loads to see and do!
