About 4 weeks ago, me and Erik went to Germany to see a house.
We wanted to buy a house in Germany since we were there on a holiday 4 years ago.
Our dream location : I quote Wiki :
The Palatinate Forest (German: Pfälzerwald) is a low-mountain region in southwestern Germany, located in Palatinate in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate. The forest is a designated nature park (German: Naturpark Pfälzerwald), equivalent Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), covering 1,771 km²
The house was magical, the area is unbelievable beautiful and it is a 4 1/2 hour drive from our home here in Holland.
The first couple of years we will use it as a vacation home and when my son is on his own 2 feet we will move to Germany.
The house is from about 1777 and build of red sandstone with timber frame and in a really good condition !
There is another house attached that needs a lot of TLC ( the toilet is outside ! )
It is surrounded by woods and low mountains and a little stream runs through the garden.
The water in the house comes from a mountain well !!!! I can't wait to drink that, water is my favourite drink ( and coffee) !
When we were there 4 weeks ago this lovely man ;-) Marcus showed us the garden and pointed out the Wild Boar tracks.
Well, that is why I made the litter of little piggies !
We made an offer, they accepted and last weekend we talked about the final details.
If all goes well we will be the official owners in a few weeks !
And now the pics :
Erik and I are still in a slightly state of shock, we can hardly believe we will spend our free time in such a magical place and my goodness what inspiration this is : Can you imagine the animals and gnomes being created here ?
