When I moved to Waterloo, there was a Farm-School at this place, since 1920. It had been created for young children in difficulty in the normal primary school. Fortunately the classified historic buildings on a 15-hectare area of land had been renovated. The works had been going on since about 3 years, and I had never realized what happened behind the high hedges, until suddenly the view was free and I discovered a whole new "village" !
A sky view
The entrance to the restaurant, swimming pool, library etc is here through the renovated old school building.
a little park
Here where once the children were running and screaming is now the way to the restaurant
which is very nice !
The swimming pool is a little small in my opinion
I loved the library and Charlie too
very important ! The sales office, there are still houses and flats for sale !
an overview on apartments and flats
The day care
The fitness room (not yet furnished)
The retirement home
A medical center just besides.
The whole complex looks beautiful, but I found it a bit too sterilized, too clean, the soul is missing. Maybe it will come later when all houses and apartments are occupied, when there will be more people in the streets and in the park. For the moment it looks a little lifeless.
