About our home

The studio is friendly and well equipped and perfect for one or two people. The studio is named the garden studio as it is connected to our garden. The garden-studio offers a sitting area, a kitchen area and a sleeping area. In the studio is a small place to cook; also there is a sink for washing your dishes and a separate sink to brush your teeth. There is a fridge with a freezer. There is a desk and a sitting area. All in one space. We will make it comfortable for you. The floor is wood. There is a twin bed besides the window. There is a nice bathroom - during summer it will only be used by you. The room has a door toward an outdoor place with a roof and then there is our garden.

This garden-studio is in the basement of our historic mansion. The basement has its own front door. The basement is long - at least 18 meters. There is a long corridor from the front to the back of the basement. The basement about 2.50 meter high and nice cool in summer and comfortable warm in winter. The basement offers the garden studio, a nice baht room, a front room and a storage room. You can use the nice bathroom with a sink and a shower in a bath. The toilet is separate from the bathroom. At the end of the basement is a staircase to the main mansion and scullery separated by two doors. In this scullery is our washing machine, dryer, iron place, food and storage. If agreed upon you can use our washing machine and dryer. Our main mansion is also on this website as separate unit.

The garden-studio has been used as audio-record-room. Summer 2020 we repainted the studio with white colours.

The garden studio is called the garden room as it is facing the back garden. Although you are close to the city center, our gardens feels llike a forest and by night it is quiet and peaceful. The other room in the basement is called the frontroom and is our room for guests, who use the same bathroom and toilet as you do. Otherwise the bathroom and toilet are your own and nobody else will use them. The front room who is for our guests if there, is facing the front garden, but also the bikes and the street. It is special to have a front garden in Utrecht. We are really happy to have a front garden as it gives privacy. And you can park your bike in the front garden. The gardenstudio is much larger and has more comfort.

We can talk about using our bikes or our car. It depends on availability and the time of year. Our neighborhood is safe. Our house has a perfect location for the city center and for the university. both are reachable by bike and by bus. The bus stop is some minutes away. Please take notice that depending on the kind of swap, we ask a €50,- cleaning fee.

The house is very well located. It is peaceful and you are close to nice streets with shops and restaurants. With a 10 minute walk you are in the middle of the beautiful city center and a bike of 10 minutes brings you to Utrecht’s Science Park with moderns university buildings. Our house is a 30 minute drive to Amsterdam and Schiphol. It is 2 hours drive to Antwerp, Belgium or 5 hours for Paris. You can walk to green parks or take a stroll in the historic city.

Our house offers a peaceful retreat amidst the beautiful historic city centers of Utrecht (10 min by feet), Amsterdam (30 min), Rotterdam (35 min) Gouda (30 min) and Delft (40 min).

Utrecht is in the middle of the Netherlands and offers a great public transportation system, bringing you throughout the country and beyond. It is not needed to wear face masks in the Netherlands.
