The home is in the up-and-coming neighborhood of Bezuidenhout in South Holland’s city of The Hague. It was built in Haagse School style, a style of architecture popularized between the1920s and 1950s. When Zwolsman discovered the property was for sale, he negotiated an appealing price with the real estate agent and purchased it on a whim without consulting his wife. It was a bold move, but after he promised Priscilla that they would stay put for at least five years in their new house, they put their first-floor apartment on the market and it sold in six days. The house was in its original 1960s state when the Zwolsmans moved in and was in desperate need of Floris Zwolsman's interior design and renovation skills.
