In the picturesque village of Dwarsgracht, located near Giethoorn, a new house has been completed that suits the surroundings. For example, the house has traditional characteristics. These are mostly present in the thatched roof, the typical ‘camel back’, the black wooden rear annex, the orange roof tiles and the façade layout. The large façades at the front give the house a modern touch. The accompanying boathouse, which also has space for guest quarters, uses the same materials as the main house, such as part untreated and part black oak.
The house has three bedrooms and one bathroom. Two traditional bedsteads have been built in the front bedroom. The dining kitchen offers views of the water, while the living room overlooks the garden.
