My house is artistically furnished, with both vintage and modern elements. The semiprofessional, open kitchen has been completely renovated. The living room is light, looking out on a romantic garden by a glass sliding door. The garden is medium-sized with two small wooden terraces and a sunshield.
On the first floor you'll find two comfortable bedrooms and a newly renovated bathroom with a shower.
At the front of the house there is a quiet road and free parking, looking out on a beautiful field of wildflowers where children can play.
The house is only five minutes away from the centre of the picturesque village with unique shops, cafes and high quality restaurants. The centre is build around The Ruinekerk (an old church) that goes back for centuries.You can visit the market located around the Church on Saturday. In the summer also art is sold in the market by various artists. Bergen is known as an "art-village": many international famous artists have lived and worked here, like Roland Holst and Charley Toorop. Bergen has its own museum called Kranenburgh.
If you want to go for a swim or sunbathe on the beach, all it takes is a fifteen minute bike ride. For hiking, you simply step out of the door and enjoy the landscape with the typical dutch old farms, woodlands and pastures. Closer to the sea you can hike through the dunes, the highest of the country being located in Schoorl, near Bergen.
For a day out you can visit Alkmaar, a beautiful town only 15 minutes away. Amsterdam, the capital of Holland is a 45 minutes drive, also easy to reach by train.
P.S. Ich habe eine sehr schöne Katze namens Abel. Er hat seine eigene Katzentür und meist lebt in der Sommersonne.
I have my own business as a graphic designer and my office is situated in Alkmaar. In my spare time I make sculptures and love to cook. Regularly I go to see a movie in The Zwarte Schuur, a beautiful old barn tucked away in the woods of Bergen. I also often go for a lovely meal to the village and stay there to enjoy the little pubs around the Ruinekerk. My beloved daughter is living and studying in Amsterdam.
I grew up in the centre of Bergen but I’m glad to have a home now at a more quiet edge of the village. It’s a lovely place and I very much like to share it with you!
