Between the North Sea, Hever and Eider lies the Frisian peninsula of Eiderstedt.
One finds typical large farms from the old days standing close to its long dikes and wide beaches.
In 2014 Angelika and Gerrit bought one of these farms from 1776 .
According to their their ideas they extensively renovated it over 4 years.
During the renovation and conversion of the imposing thatched-roof house,
building elements steeped in history such as wooden beams and old stone slabs were preserved and
combined with contemporary materials such as concrete and leather as well as modern furnishing details.
In the open and bright living area, large panoramic windows capture the light of the seasons and provide a far-reaching view of the outside.
A feeling of space and calmness inside the entire house. It is as homely inside as it appears and from the outside.
A casual, laid-back athmosphere suprises any visitor.
Another special feature are two rooms with historic Delft wall tiles and the two original richly decorated wooden alcove beds,
which still bear witness to the wealth of the former builders.
The house stands on an 8000sqm plot, on a mound, a raised hill that used to protect against storm tides.
The two have succeeded here in preserving the historic and bringing the house into the present day with modern elements.
