The former classroom of the old village school is a comfortably furnished, bright room with large windows to the south side.
The old brick house is idyllically situated on a large plot with a beautiful garden, old trees and a wide view.
The large living room is open-plan and is divided into a living and sleeping area. In addition to a cozy couch area, there is a dining area, with adjoining open kitchen. This is new and fully equipped. The sleeping area with a large bed, can be separated by light curtains. The sleeping couch can accommodate two more people.

My wife Helga and me are living in an old school-building of our own in a very small village on the country in the north-west of Germany in the near of Osnabrück. We have two adult children, one preparation to get teacher at Cologne. and a son, who is studying architecture at Aachen. My wife works as therapeut with autistic children and adults, and I design and build furnitures for private people and pediatrics. One of our passions is to dance Tango Argentino.
