Our cosy house used to be the postmaster's house, where he lived with his family. The former postoffice, now an artistic projectspace is annex to the house, and also in our property. Our home is very childfriendly, with 3 bedrooms for our kids, 8, 12, 14. It has been renovated profoundly 8 years ago, so all comfort is there, washing machine, dishwasher, big screen plasma television, central heating, double glass, expresso machine, etc.. Downstairs is an open livingspace with kitchen, diningcompartment, television corner & sittingspace with woodstove. We have a small garden on the south side, all along the house. It is a very sunny house, because we have windows on east, south and west. It is located in Merelbeke, in a middleclass neighboorhood, safe and quiet. The distance to Ghent is 3km; 5min by car, 15min by bikes (also available) or public transport. There is a busstop 2min walk, a trainstation 5min walk, with direct train to Ghent (5min) and to Brussels (30min). It is very central located with a lot of logistic possibilities. It is close to the highway from where you can go in one hour to the seaside, Northern France, Antwerp, Brugge (half an hour) etc.. There is a nice park closeby, and a public swimmingpool with sauna facilities and a waterslide for children. Last but not least we have a very nice cat, Illy, and two cute silkchickens, that love to be taken care off.
