Right! That's what it was saying to me, Swiss Cottage. The interior of Swiss cottage has a charm that the other one is missing though, its as though it was saying 'well a teaspoonful of this effect is lovely, so a ladleful will be even lovelier'!

Parts of the country are absolutely blighted with them. A lot of them even ran out money and can't even afford to landscape them.



None are aesthetically pleasing, neither the dick waving McMansions or the Hansel and Gretel house.
If the latter was toned down a bit, then maybe.
Looks a nightmare from a maintenance pov.

It's an open plan space that wouldn't be my preference but there are two distinct sides to that big long room that is parallel to the kitchen. One side a living space and the other side a bedroom.

Correct... but where is that bedroom?
A 3 room house in Holland means exactly that, 3 rooms. I only count 2, front and back room on the ground floor. Then there is the basement and the shed.

Old(er) Dutch houses were all built like that. Front room and a backroom. And then 2,3,4 whatever bedrooms. I dont think either room was ever a bedroom.

I actually think it used to be a massive house that has been "chopped up" into smaller apartments.

The one i posted is at no 197 in that street. Also in a part of The Hague that used to be chique.
This is 263 for sale.

If you take the 2 floorplans, they are quite similar. Certainly on ground floor level.

Has The Netherlands got mad house prices like Ireland as well?

Certain parts, definitely.


The Hague is not exactly a village though. Government buildings are to be found there and most, if not all ministeries too.
Then a buttload of embassies not too far away from this Laan van NOI.
Plus there are 17 million people on that ****ty little bit of land.

And still..... i could afford to buy a place of my own in any of the 4 big cities. Something i cant here in Dublin.

I want it. I want to buy it now. I don't care if I have to use a ladder to get in and there's no plumbing, 100 for a room is 100 for a room.
