Good Wednesday morning! A warm and cozy character townhouse circa 1912 in the historic center of beautiful Harderwijk, Netherlands.
I adore looking through Dutch home listings. The quirky architecture and use of windows that seem to make the best use of natural light in a gloomy climate, the warm wood stoves and lived-in decor, it all makes me feel like I could settle in here with much satisfaction.
From the listing on Funda:
Are you looking for a particularly attractive city center home in the historic center of Harderwijk? Then you should definitely come and see this house! Together with the Vischmarkt we can say that this is the most beautiful square in Harderwijk. The square borders the old city wall and is within walking distance of the market square, the harbor, the shopping streets and the newly realized city beach and boulevard. You can hardly live more centrally in the city.
Then about the house itself… as soon as you enter you will discover the atmosphere that this town house has to offer. The high ceilings and authentic walls, for example, catch the eye. Through the hall you reach the attractive living room with the work / dining area at the front, where you can look away over the Smeepoortenbrink. Characteristic of the spacious living room are the authentic brick wall, the high ceiling and the attractive wood stove.
Via a passage with toilet and patio you reach the back house. The back house is adjacent to the old city wall and here is the kitchen with built-in appliances. There are currently 3 bedrooms and a modern bathroom on the first floor. You can also reach the spacious roof terrace through one of the bedrooms.

BELOW A BRIEF EXPLANATION OF THE CURRENT OWNERS: It is not without pain in the heart that we sell this warm, fine house that has a lot of character. For over seven years we have enjoyed the atmosphere in and around this house, the lovely wood-burning stove in the autumn and winter and the roof terrace in the spring and summer, the cosiness on the square and the proximity of good restaurants within walking distance. Still in love with our first owner-occupied home!
