Pleasent house, green area, seashore, Wadden Island at hand

We can offer you a spacious house with a big garden around it in a silent living area. Lots of space for living, cooking, sleeping etc. Harlingen is one of the famous 'Frisian 11 cities', with 16.000 inhabitants. It is located on the coast. You can take one of the boats to the beautiful Wadden Islands (Unesco Heritage) from here. Harlingen itself has a pittoresk old city centre with more than 750 monumental buildings. It has a little shopping street and several restaurants etc. Harlingen is 25 kilometers from Leeuwarden, the capital city of Friesland. Leeuwarden was European Capital Cultural City in 2018. Several other nice cities like Bolsward, Sneek and Franeker are close by from Harlingen. You can easily bike to there.
The house is in a quiet neighbourhood, and was build in 1979. It has a garage and parking place.
Close to Harlingen is the Afsluitdijk. There starts the IJsselmeer, a big sailing water lake. Friesland is famous for its lakes and sailing waters. You can easily hire a boat etc.
The land is flat and green and perfect for biking.
If you like culture, there are many nice places and museums to visit, for example the Fries Museum at Leeuwarden, the Royal Eisinga Museum at Franeker and Het Hannemahuis at Harlingen.
