Romantic, thatched roofed villa with swimming pool, beautiful garden and view of the woods.
This characteristic villa built in 1925 is amazingly sunny, attractive, and spacious (approx. 320m2). It has a beautiful, large, south-facing garden (1648m2) where you can enjoy the sun all year round. Since the garden borders the Langenhorst woods you look out into a beautifully green space and have optimum privacy. It also makes your own parcel of land seem much larger. Additionally, you will enjoy the heated pool (approx. 10m x 5m).
Because the piece of land lies on a dune, it has different levels. The villa matches this difference and so has an unusual layout. At the front there is the entrance on the ground floor, at the back the ground floor is a level lower and contains a large kitchen, among other things.
The villa lies in an unusually green location close to the royal estate De Horsten. Here you have a really 'outdoor' lifestyle near The Hague's town centre. Services like access roads, schools, and sports associations are close by. Wassenaar’s town centre, the American embassy, Marlot and the beach are within bicycling distance. It is a superb base from which to go to Den Haag, Schiphol, and Amsterdam, as well as to Rotterdam and Utrecht.
You go up a leafy lane to the villa. You can park on the property in front of the villa, on the long driveway, or under the spacious carport in the back garden. The covered entrance lies at the side of the villa. You enter the house through a spacious foyer, that opens onto an imposing, light reception hall with coat cupboards and a stylish platform stairway and parquet floor. From this hall you access the living room, the work room, the guest toilet and the other floors.
You go through beautiful two-leaved doors into the light L-shaped living room (approx. 60). This room has a characteristic fishbone parquet floor, sleek plastered walls and a stylish fireplace with a classic surround. Just off the living room is the huge covered balcony. From both the living room and the balcony you have a breath-taking view of the gorgeous garden, the swimming pool and the woods just beyond. This place gives you the true feeling of freedom and brings you close to nature. It allows you to really experience each of the four seasons.
Next to the living room is a practical pantry with a refrigerator, dishwasher, 2 burner cooker, microwave and sink.
The front room is currently used as a work room, but it is suitable for use as a formal dining room, TV room or library. This room also has a fireplace with classical surround, and doors to the terrace at the front
You reach the first floor via the platform stairway. Here there is a very spacious landing with oak parquet floors and access to the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, 3 bedrooms, the second bathroom and the separate toilet.
The master bedroom is wonderfully spacious (approx. 25) and has many bespoke fitted cupboards. Distinctive windows give the room a romantic appearance and through them you have the beautiful views of the back garden. Here too you find the classic oak fishbone parquet floors.
The master bedroom has its own well-maintained en-suite bathroom with a bathtub, modern shower stall, washstand with marble top and two sinks, and a hanging toilet. The natural light in this bathroom is very pleasurable.
The three bedrooms are spacious and attractive. Two of them have built-in closets and one has its own balcony with the beautiful view of the garden. The light oak laminate floor is beautiful.
The basement is a fully habitable floor accessible via the stairway n the reception hall or through the outer door. On this floor there is a dream of a kitchen, a bedroom, the scullery/laundry and a lot of storage space.
The kitchen has a heated flagstone floor, a gas fireplace and access to the fantastic garden and a (partially) covered terrace. The bespoke kitchen has wooden work surfaces, a 5 burner Boretti cooker and various high quality built-in appliances. This kitchen will be the heart of the home for many people: it is exquisite!
Next to the kitchen is a (bed)room with French doors to the garden and the covered terrace. This room also has several bespoke cupboards. It is a fine room for guests, for the children or to work in.
From the kitchen you can enter the laundry room. It is a complete space for laundering and ironing. It also contains a shower stall so that you can have a warm shower directly after a swim in the pool.
Finally you can store a huge amount in the separate storage room and in the built-in cupboards in the corridor next to it. This is also where the wine cellar is.
The attic level is currently accessed with a loft ladder. Here too there is a lot of storage. On the first floor’s large landing there is enough space to place a stairway to the attic should you wish to make extra rooms or a large hobby- or playroom.
The garden is just fascinating! The vegetation creates a lot of privacy and the swimming pool is a wonderful place to enjoy outdoor life with family and friends. Lighting ensures that you can enjoy the garden late into the evening.
The stone storage in the garden can be converted into a pool house and sauna. The garden has a sprinkler system using the property’s own spring
