When we renovated this beautiful but relatively small dikehouse, our vision was (and is) that it gives the most comfort and shows it's beauty best by not parting it in small spaces. That's why we made it open and transparent. The lay out of the three floors is really basic and clear: no small rooms and obstacles, just open space where you see the beautiful old walls, windows and beamed ceiling. All three floors are connected by the old open hall with stairs. So you could say the house is a vertical loft.
The deepest floor (partly in the dike) is the great kitchen which we use for more than cooking. The beamer is here and you can plug in your phone or Ipod for music. The kitchen is a very nice place to sit, enjoy and be together at the large table with 10 chairs. The kitchen floor has a beautiful view on the old church ring. Also the toilet, the only one in the house, is here on this kitchen floor.
The first floor is at dikelevel. It is a combi of a living room and sleeproom; there is a TV with cable and a nice comfortable sofa. Also there are 2 beds (which you can put together as one off course).
The second and top floor is a romantic bedroom with a beautiful luxues round bed (220 diameter). The original wooden beams are lovely and the roof windows provide a light and clear atmosphere. On this floor is also the shower.
Please treat our house the way you would like your house to be treated.
