Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: This is me, Ingrid. Together with my husband, Henk, we purchased the 'Johan House' in 2008 when our backyard neighbor moved out making it available. This opportunity happens only once in a lifetime. We meticulously renovated it to meet all of our dreams and are thrilled to open it for business. Next to running the vacation home, we also have a catering business, so if you would like to have a meal prepared, ask away!
Why the Owner Chose Amersfoort: Amersfoort is a quaint and charming city located in the heart of the Netherlands. Amersfoort is a city with a small town coziness and with big city benefits. All facilities like shops, restaurants (you will find a.o. Asian, French, Spanish, Italian, and even TV-award winning Dutch kitchen), museums, cinema and theater are within walking distance. The city of Amersfoort organizes many free of charge open air festivals suitable for kids and/or grown ups.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Some of the key features of the 'Johan house' is its unique central location in a very old and charming city center, yet very quiet and safe at night. Around Amersfoort are many natural parks and reserves which can be visited by boat, bicycle or car. We rent out bicycles and can help you in making a nice 'green' itinerary. Public transportation is extremely well organised. All big cities in the Netherlands have direct connections with Amersfoort Central Station.
