A comfortable and spacious townhouse in the vibrant city of Rotterdam, The Netherlands

We live in a characteristic townhouse from 1920. Original details like stained glass windows combined with a modern interior give the house a special atmosphere. The house is spacious and comfortable and well maintained. There is a nice back garden with a big veranda for afternoon drinks and BBQ.
On the ground floor, there is a large living room with a direct access to the veranda and a fully equipped kitchen (oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge-freezer and espresso machine). The first floor has a master bedroom with a balcony, a study and a bathroom with shower and bath. The second floor has two bedrooms with double beds and a smaller third bedroom. Toilets are available on all floors.

About Our Family

My name is Dirk van Peijpe (58). I live in the house with my daughter Olga (18). My son Casper (21) lives nearby and joins us for diner weekly. We have a cat called Piwi.

Lifestyle

Olga studies Facility Management. But what she really likes is gymnastics, shopping, spending time with friends, holidays in the sun and city trips.

Dirk is an urban designer by profession. Cities and architecture are also his biggest passion. But he also likes photography, fine food and music.
