Lovely modern Dutch family home: near woods & 1 hr from Amsterdam

Please come and enjoy our lovely Dutch family home: it's cosy, spacious enough for a family of six, with a sunny outdoor space to eat and play.

We're located in a quiet & green neighbourhood in the town of Ede, 10 minutes walk from the train station that brings you to exciting Amsterdam (less than an 1 hour), historical Utrecht (25 minutes) and to the artsy city of Arnhem in 10 minutes.

Ede is surrounded by beautiful woods and heather fields, and lies next to the gorgeous nature park 'De Hoge Veluwe', its world-famous Kröller Moller museum showing off its Van Gogh's and Picasso's as well as multiple other tourist highlights.

Our house offers a spacious and light living area, with a semi open kitchen where you'll find everything you need including a dishwasher, an oven, a fridge and freezer, a toaster and plenty of space to prep good coffee or a lovely meal. Upstairs you will find four bedrooms, a modest bathroom and an additional seperate toilet. Down in the cellar you'll find the laundry area with a washing machine and dryer. There's plenty of lego's, games, Playmobil and other toys to enjoy in case you'd bring along your kids for the exchange.

We have a lovely sunny backyard, where you can enjoy the sun all afternoon and evening, share a meal, or jump on the trampoline. Straight behind the house there's a soccer field and some woods suitable for building huts or biking and skeltering around.

The shed is filled with 4 adult bikes including - a men's racing bike and a woman's sports bike, as well as 4 kids bikes for all kinds of ages and kids seats.
