An exceptional and authentic home that will capture your heart!
This monumental detached mansion from 1886 (municipal monument) was thoroughly renovated in style in recent years, implementing high-quality materials and with an eye for its original details. The renovations addressed not just the house itself, but also included the foundation and the outdoor spaces. The annex was newly built. This property offers modern convenience with a nostalgic feel.
Spanning a total floor area of 320 sqm, there is more than enough room for a large family to live comfortably. The layout also allows for a home office/practice, live-in parents, a Bed & Breakfast, fitness/ sauna area and much more.
Extraordinary elements include the living room with pocket doors, cellar, raised 'opkamer' room, spacious and welcoming kitchen/lounge, veranda, multi-purpose basement under/behind the entire house, separate annex in style and the piled driveway. The lot comprises 820 sqm of freehold land. Combined with the location on a street with countless monumental buildings at the front and the sweeping view of the rural landscape from the rear, this home is sure to take your breath away!!
The exceptional layout of this villa is as follows:
The professionally landscaped front garden with beautiful sycamores leads to the entrance of the home. The foyer features marbled paneling and beautiful doors with stained glass windows that lead to a long corridor with granite flooring and panel doors to the rooms. To the right is a living room with pocket doors with dark herringbone parquet flooring. The cabinets that divide the room feature stunning elaborate wood work, the sliding doors also have stained glass windows. The ceiling is adorned with crown molding. French doors at the rear open to the veranda. To the left is the cloak room, which can also be used as an office or bedroom. This room features the same granite flooring as the corridor and is fitted with a number of closets. The windows have gorgeous shutters. Next to the cloak room is the raised 'opkamer' room, which is currently used as a study. This room features oak flooring and smooth plaster walls with cladding and a fitted closet.
The restroom is at the end of the hall and has been beautifully modernized, incorporating granite flooring and tiling in keeping with the style of the home. The kitchen/lounge is one of the home's gems. A lovely room that can easily accommodate Boretti gas stove, two large built-in refrigerators and freezers, a dishwasher and a beautiful hearth with the extractor and brushed natural stone countertops. Stairs from the kitchen lead down to the (wine) cellar. There is also a spiral staircase to the basement.
The basement is a multi-purpose area. Whether you convert it into a bedroom for the children, a home cinema, sauna/ fitness room or just an office or a bedroom - the choice is yours. The floors are tiled, the walls feature smooth plaster finishes, the ceilings have recessed lights and there is underfloor heating. French doors open to the garden.
Adjacent is a ca. 70 sqm-office space with 21 (!) fitted cabinets. The area features a kitchen unit and a separate restroom. Consequently, this space can be used for any number of purposes. French doors open to the backyard, and a second veranda with modular skylights. This last space can also be incorporated into the rest of the house relatively easily. Adjacent to the veranda is a door to the first shed.
A beautiful timber staircase with a stair runner leads to the first floor. The landing features the exposed roof ridge and the historic beams lend the space a nostalgic feel. ~The walls feature smooth plaster finishes, combined with clad paneling. Radiators have been neatly tucked away behind radiator cabinets. Both bedrooms at the front of the house are fitted with dormers with beautiful round windows. This level accommodates a total of four bedrooms, the master bedroom connects to the bathroom and has laminate flooring. All further rooms have oak floorboards. The separate laundry room has a large countertop above the laundry machine and dryer, in addition to a utility sink for hand wash. There are four fitted wardrobes at one side of this room.
The bathroom is another gem. With ample space, the bathroom can be used simultaneously by multiple people. The walk-in shower features a regular shower head and a massage shower. A sunken bathtub is a stunning feature, and features gorgeous teak paneling. A large double vanity with a natural stone counter and a wall-mounted toilet complete this room. Granite flooring, tall slanted ceilings with crown molding, recessed lighting and a designer radiator again lend this space an authentic feel.
Loft storage has been created above a number of bedrooms.
The annex is a completely new build, in keeping with the style of the house and consists of two levels. The second floor incorporates a full apartment with the following layout:
