In a fabulous residential area, on a quiet street yet a mere stone's throw from the city center is this characteristic detached villa, built in 1803 in accordance with a design by architect J.H. Slot. This municipal monument offers an enormous amount of space (floor area 314 sqm) and sits on a secluded 886 sqm-lot.
The villa is well-maintained and still features original period details such as panel doors, stained glass, tall ceilings, etc. The house accommodates a generous 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, making it an ideal home for a large family with an au pair, combined home and office, etc. The stunning and leafy villa district is within approximately 5 minutes' cycling distance of Hilversum's city center, with a wide selection of shops, restaurants and cafes. Major cities such as Utrecht and Amsterdam/ Schiphol are a short commute away (within 30 minutes), both by car and public transportation.
Ground floor: entrance with stained glass, large foyer, spacious hall with a restroom and coat area. The expansive living/dining room features tall corniced ceilings with crown molding. At the rear is a cozy fireplace and a bay window overlooking the garden. At the front is a side room (currently a tv-room) with sliding doors to the sunroom. Windows to all sides and the French doors to the front garden make the sunroom a delightful and welcoming spot to enjoy. At the other side of the central hall is the kitchen/lounge which is fitted with a 5-burner gas hob, range hood, oven, dishwasher, Quooker and hard stone countertops. The kitchen also accesses the large standing-height cellar. Beyond the kitchen is a pantry with extra cabinet space, the central heating unit, meter cupboard and a door to the side garden.
The grand, elegant staircase with stained glass details leads to the upper levels. The first floor accommodates 3 spacious bedrooms, the front bedroom has French doors to the balcony. The master bedroom is fitted with a large, floor-to-ceiling wardrobe wall. The bathroom is fitted with a bathtub, toilet, double vanity and walk-in shower. This level also features a fourth, smaller bedroom (currently used as a gym) and a separate laundry room with the fittings for the laundry machine/ dryer and a large boiler.
Off the staircase plateau toward the second floor is a small bathroom with a toilet, sink and shower.
The second floor accommodates yet another four bedrooms (one with a balcony at the side) and a third bathroom with a shower, toilet and vanity. This level offers ample storage space, and a loft ladder from the landing leads to the spacious storage attic.
The villa is centrally positioned on a 886 sqm-lot. There is on-lot parking at the front for two cars and a large carport for a third car, bicycles and garbage cans.
