Your fully independent apartment (own entrance, 80 m2), rural location in the green countryside between The Hague, Leiden and Delft, is located along the former towpath of the Vliet, a small road now mainly in use for walking and cycling.

Your renovated attic is located under the sloping roof of a former farmhouse. The bright and sunny rooms with two large dormers are well equipped. Total floor area approximately 80 m2 .
