Where we want to go
Description of our house
Our house is the middle part of an old (1880) characteristic, white, former farmhouse and village bakery in a quiet, green neighborhood, and situated on the "green". In the livingroom we have an oak floor and woodburning stove, there is a separate convenient kitchen, a small but nicely decorated wooden bathroom with bath and shower. A design studio in the back of the house is overlooking a sheltered garden with trees, lawn, pond and patio (weber barbeque) Upstairs 2 bedrooms with double beds (130x200) and more open space . Wooden floors in all the rooms. Vintage, designer and handmade furniture. We love our house, but you will have to see if our style suits you. We don't care that much about luxury, but we like style and comfort our way and spend a lot of time designing, choosing colours and decorating. We have "Hot Air" central heating, very comfortable and no radiator in sight!

= marks the location of this home
Muiderberg; small, former seaside village (in the 30's the sea was transformed in a huge lake, IJsselmeer) Our house is on the village green and you walk easily within a minute into a lovely wooded area next to the waterfront. Naardermeer, Hollands oldest nature reserve is less than 1 km away. Muiderberg still has a beach with harbor where you can swim, sail, kayak in our own 2-pers kayak, try windsurfing or just enjoy drinks or food in our "sea"side restaurant. Bakery, butcher, greengrocer and supermarket are among other shops and 4 restaurants a stone's throw away in the village. Beautiful rivers, nature reserves, forests, heather in the neighborhood. Something special in the heavy built up area around Amsterdam.
Something about ourselves
We are; Thijn, female, former Waldorf School Arts teacher, now designer/silversmith, working from home. Klaas, male, musician and working for an independent record company, endforties, together for nearly 25 years. Snorrie, sweet little doggie, we would like to take her on our trips, but she could stay with friends if that's a problem. We have 2 easy cats who have to be taken care of when we are away.(It means only feeding(no tins, only dry food), they go in and out themselves) We are absolutely in love with our house and village. We like to share what we have. We are interested in nature, environment, art, reading, architecture, design, music, food. We try to live environment friendly. We don't smoke.We are quiet people and we would treat your house like ours, very careful.
