Welcome to your own 7 acre (27,000m2) forest retreat, where you’ll feel miles away, but are actually right in the heart of Europe. This stately architect-designed home is unique in that it can suit a variety of situations. With five bedrooms it can easily be the perfect family home, or is ideal for a home-based business or professional practice. Alternatively, it also has the ability to be transformed into a charming B&B. Situated amidst lush greenery, bordering an expansive nature reserve, the setting also provides the ideal inspiration for a writer/artist getaway.

What makes this home so special? It is the combination of forest, peace, tranquility and nature, yet located only 40kms from the centre of Amsterdam.

The property features a secure electric entry gate (with intercom and video), along with your own Monet-inspired pond, paved decks and beautifully designed gardens – with your own Sherwood forest at your backdoor.
