The gardens around are landscaped in French park style, with terraces, lawns, ponds and open garden house.

The living room is comfortably generous. Thanks to the glass and window play, this heart of the house is light and airy, and at the same time cozy, thanks to the smart layout.
The living room in L-shape has a spacious bay window facing east and so the morning sun. The floor is made of Belgian bluestone, while the high ceiling with classic moldings is equipped with recessed spotlights for even ambient light. The high windows - suitable for both turning and tilting positions - with wooden window sills give the room a real castle atmosphere. The authentic oak fireplace does the same. This hand-carved showpiece actually comes from a French chateau and now frames the modern gas fireplace. This heart of the room bathes in the daylight, through the wide, double doors to the terrace.
Through the open arches you enter the dining room, which is also connected to the entrance hall and kitchen. There you will also find double patio doors and a comfortable gas fireplace. Here the eye catcher is the carefully inlaid authentic Versailles floor in warm wood.
The four stroke glass doors from the dining room overlook the spacious kitchen, while double doors lead to the terrace and overlook the garden. In the middle proudly stands the handmade kitchen island of oak and Belgian bluestone. In it is the dishwasher. In the same, handmade style is the kitchen-wide closet wall with more than enough storage space and the large fridge.
The other wall is the domain of the large, semi-professional stove in the characteristic fireplace with extractor. This stove will make every cook salivate; four burners, a wok burner, a separate halogen hob with baking tray, a warm keeping/simmer oven, a hot-air oven, a conventional oven and a separate grill. Next to it are a combo-steam oven and a microwave built into a matching niche cabinet.
Under the arch you enter the television and music room at the front of the house. This relaxed room also has the characteristic high windows with wooden window sills.
The second hall is logistically practical, with doors to the kitchen and backyard, and access to the toilet, the meter cupboard, the laundry pantry, study and garage.
