One property with three houses
1. The ‘old’ house
The original (appr. 1980) two-bedroom house has been partly renovated (2011) with a new kitchen/living area and a new bathroom and toilet, and has a large workshop and storage area. Should you want to, this house can easily be converted into a 3 bedroom-2 bathroom rental home.
Part of the house sits on columns, thus leaving space below, which is now in use as chicken coop and storage.
Size of the home appr.: 11 x 6 66 m2
2. The family house
The newly built (2014) main house has three bedrooms and a large open plan kitchen/dining/living area, two full bathrooms and a pantry. The best part of the house is the lovely large porch (appr. 50 m2) to enjoy the fantastic views.
Size of the home: 10 x 10 100 m2
Size of the covered porch:3 x 10 30 m2
3. The newest house
The third house (2015) has been designed with space and comfort in mind for a couple. It has one large bedroom, an oversized bathroom (double sink, shower, toilet, bidet and a 3-person spa bath), a large living room, which converts into a home cinema, a guest toilet and a large open kitchen with ‘cooking island’.
Size of the home: 10 x 10 100 m2
Size of the covered porch: 6 x 10 60 m2
