LEUSDEN Bianca and Pascal were mainly looking for more space for their family. And they finally found it a little further down the Tabakssteeg neighborhood. Everything they loved so much remains the same. “We’re not going to miss anything,” says Bianca.
They found a nice spacious house at the end of a dead end. Completely to their liking. With space for the car in its own driveway and, above all, more space inside. “Where we live now, we missed a room,” explains Pascal Brouwer of the ideal image he had in mind, “we noticed it now because I work a lot from home. Then I had to go to work in the bedroom of one of our sons. With the boys coming home from school and working at home, you really do need the extra space in the house. In the new house we have a nice room with more and more space thanks to the garage next to the house and also a larger garden.
HOME IMPROVEMENT You would say the ideal house. However, there is still a lot of renovation going on at the new address. “Yes, we are renovating. We are very satisfied with it, the renovation is really just cosmetic, because there were just things inside that were not to our taste ”, explains Bianca Brouwer. “And we can’t discuss taste,” smiles Pascal in agreement. Nevertheless, the renovation is being approached on a large scale. “The kitchen, the bathroom, yes, they will be completely removed. In fact, it is completely stripped down. But we also have the opportunity. With the Christmas holidays there is more time and in addition, it is good three hundred meters in the neighborhood. So everything is very relaxed, ”says Bianca,“ it’s really cool. We just go to this house to eat, shower, and eat.
A great base for DIY in the new home and the Brouwers won’t be moving to another neighborhood. In the search for a new home, the couple did not happen overnight. “Initially, we mainly looked at new construction. In Leusden we focused on various locations and also looked for, for example, Woudenberg, ”begins Pascal. “But we are also very close to Leusden. We are really Leusden people, ”adds Bianca,“ moreover, the shops, the boys’ school are nearby and their friends live in the neighborhood. No, because of the move, we won’t really go wanting.
‘THREE HOUSES’ But it wasn’t easy and it wasn’t until they looked at the existing homes as well that it all picked up speed. “We also liked looking for a house. Many friends and acquaintances also worked there. Sometimes we even met. And at one point, it went so well that I said to Bianca “Now we have to stop, otherwise we will have three houses” “, Pascal laughs.
SHORT LINES They sold the house they had left behind through Herbrink brokers and they also bought it about ten years ago through Herbrink. And now they’ve bought their new home through Herbrink as well. “But that’s just a combination of circumstances,” says Pascal, “although we really liked it. We have not set up a search to find another house. But everything went very well. In fact, the sale of this house was completed within a week. And then we switched very quickly. For example, this is a consultation with buyers. They also want to do a thing or two about this house and then you exchange a lot of information. It worked very quickly with Herbrink brokers. The lines were short, first via Herbrink and later also directly. It worked well in the new and old house. “Our new house is twelve years old, but the inhabitants did not have a drawing of it. Still, I had a lot of cooperation from them. I finally received the construction plan from the municipality. This made it easier for me to find where the exploration hatch was, ”laughs Pascal.
