It has a private dock where you can moor a boat or simply enjoy your morning swim while the sun radiates here, while at the back of the house you will enjoy the sunny afternoons and amazing sunsets from the wooden porch/terrace. The large flower garden with second terrace catches the sun whole day.

On the souterrain level, you will find two spacious double bedrooms, a luxurious bathroom, a walk-in closet and a separate washing space with a washing machine and dryer. The bedroom in the rear of the house is currently in use as the master bedroom. This bedroom gives direct access to the garden with its big patio doors. The other bedroom boasts a double bed. This room also has a separate sleeping area on an elevation with a second double sleeping area. Ideal for children or guests.
The garden is very secluded and offers afternoon and evening sun until the sunsets. It’s a wild and flowery garden that stretches all the way to the small trench in the back with another terrace. There is a secluded guesthouse in the back that is currently in use by the owner. The garden can be entered from the street side via an alley with a lockable gate.
