In an extraordinary location, across from Loenersloot castle and set back from the road is this charming, nearly detached home. The property (listed national monument) exudes the atmosphere of yesteryear and was once part of the historic Rechthuis ensemble.
This home will surprise you at every turn and has been so lovingly and elegantly renovated that it will instantly feel like home.
The L-shape of the house and the enormous ridge height mean that the house is much larger than you would initially expect it to be; it actually spans 223 sqm and 815 m³ (NEN2580 survey standards).
Residential ca.: 223 sqm
Further internal ca.: 9 sqm
External storage space ca.: 3 sqm
Plot ca.: 274 sqm
The entrance leads to the cozy kitchen/ lounge with a traditional tiled floor in keeping with the style of the house. With natural stone worktops and sink, ample cupboard space and the large gas stove, this kitchen is every chef's dream. The lounge area in the kitchen features an antique sink and the original fireplace which is now fitted with an elevated gas burner. The passage toward the living room harbors a pantry/ utility room with a cellar hatch and accommodates the laundry area.
The living area (total ca. 55 sqm) is exceptionally bright and consists of two sections. The living room is currently used as a dining area with the grand piano, a door leads to the stunning heated sunroom with antique tiles. French doors from the sunroom lead to the south-facing garden. The raised room with beams is used as the family room, with beautiful daylight entry via the old stable windows, the charming wood burner lends the room added warmth.
The living room accesses the impressive hall with a tall beamed ceiling. French doors with casement windows lead to the spacious study with built-in desks and cabinets.
The stairs lead from the hall to the enormous landing and 2 spacious bedrooms and a luxury bathroom with a bathtub, toilet and vanity. This level features exposed beams throughout, several fitted wardrobes and 5 large roof windows.
Steps lead down to the 2nd landing, which accesses the 3rd bedroom, both with added storage space in the fitted cabinets and behind the side panels. The other side of the landing accesses a mezzanine overlooking the dining area in the kitchen. Fitted with antique wooden flooring, this landing leads through to the 2nd modern bathroom with a walk-in shower and vanity. Again, this space offers extra storage behind the panels and a roof window and the original window at the front allow daylight to flood in.
A ladder from the landing leads to a large storage attic above the bedrooms.
The beautifully landscaped side garden faces south and is adjacent to both the sunroom and the kitchen/ entrance. This Dutch door can be opened in halves. The garden is cozy and secluded and features several sitting areas, an open barn and a small storage shed. There is a parking area next to the driveway for your car.
