House in Haacht, Belgium

Hello!
we are a couple: Wim is 54 years old and he's a medical doctor, Lieve is also 54 and she is a housewife. We have 4 children, students and not at home.
We have a large modern house. On the first floor is a large kitchen with veranda, a living room with TV, a dining room, a study, a bathroom and one seperate toilet. On the second floor are 5 bedrooms (the master bedroom with a double bed), a landing, a bathroom and a toilet. Although our children are a lot older by now, we kept all of their toys, so also litlle children can have lots of fun in our house :)
We have a nice large green garden, fully enclosed (safe for children) and a large terrace furnished with wooden table and chairs for excellent outside dining possibility (12 persons).
We're very fond of animals so in our garden, we have a paddock with 2 lovely, childfriendly goats, who need little care and some chickens. We also have a cat named Jelle.
 
We already did 9 exchanges which were very pleasant :  England, twice The Netherlands three times and four times France.
Especially looking for an exchange with the UK or Ireland in 2017.
