A beautiful, one-of-a-kind and spacious home (470 sq meters/5,000 ft2 living space + a further 120 m2/1,300 ft2 of play room, tv room and gym in cellar) created within a unique building attached to an impressive church (the church is not in use). High ceilings throughout, beautiful windows and light throughout, open spaces for relaxing and dining, 60" tv with netflix, Amazon, Apple+ and surround sound, Borletti gas stove/oven, steam oven, and all cookware you will need. There is a medium size back garden with dining table, parasol for sun, Kamado Joe bbq egg for the best bbq you've ever had. Back garden gate opens to an open park for the kids to play. Nearby playground with swings, climbing, "zip line", etc.
We are a 2 minute bike ride to the famous dunes in this part of the Netherlands. From there, you will find more than 100km/60miles of paved and packed dirt bike trails for easy cycling. You can cycle through the dunes directly to the beach! You can also drive the car to the beach in about 5 minutes. Beachside cafes (pizzas, ice creams, fries, drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic). Within the sand dunes there are loads of walking trails for adults and kids. There is a Gnome trail for kids as well. Within the dunes area, there is a protected habitat for deer, where there are more than 1,000 of them grazing and not very spooked by humans, so is great for animal watching for the kids.
We are 35-40 minutes by car to Amsterdam, The Hague is 35 minutes, Rotterdam: 45 minutes. Other beautiful places to visit nearby are: Haarlem: 25 minutes, Leiden: 20 minutes. All within cycling distance from the house are 10-pin bowling, miniature golfing, beachside restaurants, petting zoo, playgrounds and of course the beaches and dunes.
We can arrange to have two electric bikes available, one of which is a bakfiets (google it for pics) in which you can carry beach bags, and up to small children; it's electric assisted so is easy to power your way to the beach/dunes/shops/etc.
There is a professional-grade wifi installed throughout the house which provides good connectivity.
There are neighbors on either side of our home, and we have a very good relationship with both; you'll likely end up bbq'ing with them, if you want, as they're very friendly and fun people.
Our home has been featured in several magazine articles, tv commercials and advertising photo shoots. It's very unique and we love living here. We're sure you'll find your time here to be very enjoyable!
