(Most of a) Dutch hamlet for sale
Wednesday 24 October 2012
Almost all of the hamlet of Hamingen, close to the Bible belt town of Staphorst, is up for sale – with a price tag of €1.35m.
The Non Nobis foundation, which manages property for good causes, has put the complex – three farms, a modern building, several sheds and a vegetable garden – up for sale. A further six hectares of farmland can also be included in the package.
Non Nobis has put the hamlet up for sale because its current tenant – an organisation which takes care of addicts – is moving to a new property in 2014.
The hamlet can trace its history back to 1468 and is located on a terp – a man-made grass mound to protect if from flooding.
Although the housing sector is in crisis, the organisation is sure the property will sell. ‘The potential buyer is getting something they will never be able to buy again,’ a spokesman told the Telegraaf.
