About our home

Our home was completely rebuild in 2013. It contains 4 floors and an attic. All original details have been preserved. The main house was build in 1896 and was in Catholic possession for about 100 years. Therefor there’s build a church attached to our house in 1922. We don’t use this church for living, just for storage. The house is centered in the middle of the town of Zwolle. Everything is within walking distance. Our town has 125.000 inhabitants and Amsterdam is 1 hour away by car or train. Train station is 5 minutes walk from our home. There’s a huge sunny backyard where children can play and there is enough space for parking several cars. Everything is very private because of trees and eventhough we live in the center of the town surrounded by neighbors it’s very quiet. In the souterrain we have a large open family kitchen and we use this space as our main living area. There’s a fireplace (gas), 2 sofas, a couch, a huge table which sits 11 people and floor heating under the tiles. So very comfortable and cozy! There’s also a game room on this floor and 2 basement areas. On the ground floor there’s an office and huge living room with 2 fireplaces (wood) and again a large dining table. On the first floor there’s again an office, a laundry room, a bathroom with separate bath and shower and there’re 3 bedrooms. On the second floor there’re 4 bedrooms and a bathroom with 2 separate showers. On each floor there’s a separate toilet. We have a wonderful house at a wonderful place and we’re very thankful we can live here. This mansion gives us a fantastic feeling and we would like to share that feeling with other people!

Where is it?


We live in a very nice and quiet neighborhood. Surrounded by very nice neighbors but we can’t see them. Our sunny backyard is full of large trees. You can easily walk to the center of the town where all the shops, restaurants, cinemas, theaters and bars are situated. Zwolle is famous because of the top of the world restaurant The Librije and Musuem the Fundatie. Also the bookstore Waanders in de Broeren is worth a visit. From Zwolle everything in the Netherlands is in the reach of max. 2 1/2 hours. So everything is suited for a day trip. Amsterdam is 1 hour drive.
