Nice family home (136 m2, semi-detached), built in 1929, centrally situated in the small town of Bennekom. The house has a spacious garden (430m2) with a lot of privacy. A trampoline and swing for the children are also there. Small town charm in a green area, while very close to major highways; 60 minutes by car to Amsterdam, a central train station is close by at 3km. A large and nice outdoor public swimming pool and play garden is located within 2km's of our house.
As the photos will show you, the entire house is always nice, tidy and clean but simple and basic in some places. It is not a perfect 'living magazine' style house (yet?). We live here since 2013 and some parts of the house will be renovated later, it is not perfect and might be rough in the finer details. The photos show you the house in all honesty as it is right now. The garden is actually more spacious than shown on these pictures. The ground floor was renovated in 2021 (new floor, new kitchen)
Besides being a nice place to stay and live, perhaps one of the nicest things of this house is it's location and how easy it is reached: It is situated in a quiet, nice small and green village, with a lot of facilities nearby like a outdoor swimming pool (1.5km), forest (350m), and lots of things to do for families. But besides that it is also situated very close to (walking/biking distance (3km)) from intercity central train station Ede-Wageningen. From there is a DIRECT connection (no need to change trains) to ALL of the following destinations: Amsterdam central station (50-60min), Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (60 min), Utrecht (20 min), Arnhem (15 min), Amersfoort (40 min) etc. A bus also stops at the end of the street (600 meters) which brings you directly to and from that station (7 minutes), although you can easily park your car or bike there. If you use a car, the major highways A12, A30 are a mere 3 km away, which brings you from our house to Amsterdam by car within the hour.
We can provide one or two cars if that is preferred. And of course, in The Netherlands many things can be done by bike and biking infrastructure is very good. We will provide bikes for you and your family (adult and/or children's bikes) if that is preferred.
6 beds; 2 bunkbeds, 1 double bed, 1 childrensbed ( length 1,50m). Not in the pictures, but the small wooden garden house (4th picture) offers a basic extra accommodation for two adults: A bunk bed, wooden floor, simple chair and table, etc. Tidy and clean, very basic in nature but finely suited for the summer, offering two extra beds.
