Nice family home in a historic neighborhood of Dresden

We live in Dresden, in the historic neighborhood of Hellerau. Hellerau is a Garden City, dating back to 1910 and currently applying for UNESCO cultural heritage status.
It is a quite residential area with small houses, gardens, nice neighbors, small shops, restaurants and a public transport stop to the city center (20 min via tram).

We are a family of 4, with our children Theo (10) and Helene (7). We like to be outdoors and travel. This is our first time, trying to exchange our house and we are very excited.

In our three-store house with an enclosed back garden on the southside you will find on the ...
ground floor:
- an open-plan living room with fireplace and kitchen
- access to the garden
- bathroom with wc/shower
first floor:
- two children bedrooms with plenty toys
- each room has a bunk bed, one room has a small extra bed (1,60 m long)
- 1 bathroom with wc
second floor:
- a master bedroom in an open galerie
basement:
- 1 bathroom with wc/bathtube

From the kitchen you can step out in our private garden with a terrace, barbecue facilities, a trampolin, wooden horse, a tree house. Right behind our house there is a little forest for the children to play.
