A family home on top of the hill

Our house is a spacious home where we raise two children. In spring en summertime the garden is a lovely place to sit and play. In autumn and wintertime the underfloor heating and the wood stove keep the house pleasant warm. On the ground floor is the living room, the kitchen and a seperate toilet. In the garden we have 2 sheds where we park our bikes and keep our garden supplies. We also have a cellar. On the first floor are the bathroom, 2 bedrooms and 1 spare bedroom which we use for our wardrobe. On the second floor we have 1 bedroom with a view on the Gelderse Valley.

Our Neighbourhood

  • beach small beach (1.3 km)
  • river river Rhine (0.4 km)
  • forest forests Laarsenberg (0.7 km)
  • shopping 3 regular supermarkets (0.5 km)

We live in a nice green and quiet neighbourhood. Our neighbours are friendly and always ready to help.

The medieval Rhenen sometimes still feels like being on holiday in my home town, although it is not a place swirling with tourists. Our house is 5 minutes walk from a train station which brings you in 1 hour and 10 minutes to Amsterdam. 20 minutes walk from our house we have the Ouwehand Zoo which has 2 giant panda's and many more animals and playgrounds.

We live 5 minutes walk from the train station and bus stops, 10 minutes walk from the river Rhine and 15 minutes walk from the forest, 15 minutes walk from supermarkets and the city center of Rhenen.
