Our home

The apartment is new (built 2003), spacious (about 1720 sq. ft./160 sq. meters), on the ground-floor, and it has a garden (so it is very child-friendly).
The living-room is painted in warm colours (a soft yellow & brown) and very cosy indeed, with a nice view on the garden, and attached to it is a modern kitchen which makes cooking a piece of cake. There are two bedrooms, one of which has baby-furniture, and an office (which can also serve as a bedroom), with an extensive library (containing English, German, and a little bit of French and Dutch literature, lots of philosophy and psychology), a computer and a printer, as well as a harpsichord.
The people in the building are in general very friendly. The building forms part of a larger complex which has the shape of the castle, with our building constituting a tower.

Who we are

  1. I am Peter and Katrien is my wife. I am at present working on a PhD in historical linguistics of English, and plan to visit Houston as a visiting scholar in 2008-2009 for about 5 months (with a flexible date of departure somewhere in between October and January 2008). I will bring my wife, who is a psychotherapist, and my two children (a 2 year-old boy and a ? of a couple of months by then).

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The apartment is located nearby the beautiful park "Rivierenhof", as well as major public transportation lines (especially Berchem Station). It is a 15 minute drive/25 minute bike to Antwerp, and about an hour driving (by car or train) to Leuven, Brussels or Ghent. It is also within a couple of hours to Bruges, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Paris and Cologne.
The neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful, with only a little bit of noise from the nearby highway. Several supermarkets and shops of all kinds (and also a hospital) are situated at walking distance.
