Our home is now officially for sale! 27 Rooms at 50 km north to Paris…
We are hopeing for someone to fall in love with the building, just like we did 15 years ago. Someone that will turn the incredible surface (504m²!) into their workshop, office and/or apartment. Someone who will enjoy watching the boats pass by, someone who loves the tranquility of the (almost) countryside… Someone who enjoys throwing parties (no neighbors that can complain about any loud music) or someone who appreciates the beautiful light that shines through the 3 meter high windows… Someone that sees their future here!
Just to be clear: the 150+ plants and 2 cats are not included 😉
One of the things that I like about moving, is going to through all out stuff and making a conscious decision on what to keep or what to give away, sell or recycle. I used to be “let’s keep that because one day I’ll need it”, but these days I can easily let go of stuff.

We tried to bring him downstairs once and he totally freaked out. So I wonder how he will do with a bit of traveling and a new home. But we’ll find out soon enough! For now he seems to enjoy life in all its simplicty:
