On a winding road along the meadows and the outside of Park Noord you find an exceptional beautiful and free located villa on a 730m2 plot. The villa was built in 2011 and provided with stylish elements and loads of space. A small bridge over the water gives access to the front garden. From there you have a free view on the street with its high trees, the water and old fruit trees. The yard is surrounded by lush green.
When you are a birdwatcher you'll find no better place.
Knights courtyard Den Engh was praised for its stunning lanes, waterscapes and parks. Despite the decline of Castle Den Engh during the 18th century it's still a magical place.
The light clay soil contributes to the scenic flora. The nature around the house grows and blooms. Flowers colour the garden. A beautiful wistaria covers the outside wall. As we wander on the terrain we take the small gravel path to the backside of the house we indulge in peace and nature.
The villa's high windows and window frames, the dark red facing, its beautiful grey roof tiles and spacious bright living are real eye-catchers. The views from all windows are stunning. Peaceful country lanes, flowery fruit trees, a diversity of birds and classic, very styling villas are characteristic for this area.
A one of a kind villa with an almost serene atmosphere.
You reach the front door by a path through the romantic garden. The entrance reveals a spacious hall with staircase, the wardrobe, a toilet room and living spaces. The villa has an exceptional spacious living with a sliding door to the distinguished salon. The high ceilings, its sleek grey self levelling floor, the stucco walls and ceilings and lots of incoming light.... It all ads up to an bright and spacious atmosphere. The front side windows bring the nature inside. Light up the fireplace and it'll give an atmospheric glow on dark evenings. In the living are two pairs of French doors to the veranda. During summer this will extend your house. So villa and garden become one.
For cooking and dining the stylish and elegant kitchen is a dream. The kitchen is fully equipped and situated in the front of the house. From the living you reach the second hall with built-in cupboard and leads through the dining kitchen to the very spacious utility room. Due to the two skylights this is a very clear room with enough space for bikes and garden tools.
From the stairs in the central hall you reach the roomy landing. In the master bedroom is a gabled roof which creates a playful atmosphere. Behind the sliding doors you find a walk in closet. There is also a very luxurious bathroom with a bath, a walk in shower and bathroom furniture with a double sink and built in tabs.
The first floor has a separate toilet.
The second and third bedroom are so spacious...calling them bedrooms is almost an insult.
Every room has large windows to create very pleasant light. The view of nature is like a fairytale.
A fixed staircase leads you to the second spacious and bright landing. The second floor has lots of storage space and connections for washing machine and dryer. There is also a lovely bedroom/working space and a second bathroom. And last but not least...for children the second floor is a heaven to play in.
From the living you can access the 20 m2 cellar with the adequate headroom. Ideal to keep your wine.
The house and garden are perfect to enjoy the sun whenever you want. There is a porch on the south part for summer coolness and winter brightness. In the garden itself are two terraces. One large one with sunshine until late and a smaller terrace with two plane trees and a hedge to create some freshness and protection during too much summer heat.
The garden is serene and sleek but plants, grass and flowers are free to grow in a natural way. The contrast between control and let go is what gives this garden its magic.
Work and pleasure
A long driveway with small stones (waaltjes) leads to the back of the house. You can easily park your car(s) there. It's possible and actually a good idea to keep an office at home. What a luxury would that be!
Rustic Enghlaan is easy to reach through a characteristic white bridge. Its quite, close to nature but also close to the exit roads. From Park Noord you swiftly take the A2, A12, A27 and A28. The public transport is good. Station Terwijde is only 7 minutes by bike and there are busses to bring you to the great centre of Utrecht. There is even a special bike-bridge to pedal directly to Utrecht centre. The villa is also close to shopping centre Vleuterweide and hiking area “Het Lint”, Het Maxima Park and clean water beach “de Haarrijnse Plas”.
