This especially beautifully finished, detached villa (approx. 285 m2) has an annexed guest house, a garage, and stands on a plot of land of almost 2000 m2. This 1930s residence has the look and feel of that architectural period, but is completely up-to-date and outfitted with all of today’s conveniences.
Both the city lover and the nature lover will delight in this place. The Hague, Leiden, Leidschendam, Voorburg, and Voorschoten are easily accessible. The British School is a 10 minute bicycle ride away.
Such peaceful and rural living is rare in the middle of the Randstad! The positioning of the house is ideal: at the front the house looks out over de Vliet to the grasslands beyond that run all the way to Duivenvoorde Castle. The back of the property borders the “Vogelplas de Starrevaart” nature reserve, a small area with flora and fauna. It is a unique area particularly interesting to birdwatchers, but also to those who enjoy peaceful walks. The Vlietland nature and recreation area is also just a stone’s throw away.
You access the residence through beautiful wooden fencing at the entrance to the driveway. Thereafter you are in your own oasis surrounded by glorious nature. Here on the grounds of the villa there is enough space to park several cars.
You enter the villa through the foyer with its place to hang coats, and the entrance to the spacious guest toilet. From there you enter the large reception hall with its stylish stairway to the first floor. The hall also gives access to the living room via two-leaved doors. Both the foyer and the reception hall have beautiful marble floors with underfloor heating.
The L-shaped living room (approx. 50 m2) is deliciously light and spacious. From this room you have, on every side, breath-taking views of the surroundings. You can never tire of these views. You can enjoy what the nature has to offer during the four seasons: different birds that come and go, the pond where skaters skate around during a freezing winter, and the rising sun.
Also noteworthy in the living room is the beautiful, traditionally laid, fishbone parquet floor, and the beautiful finishings. Someone clearly had an eye for detail here. The fireplace with its classic marble surround ensures a warm cosiness during the dark, cold days.
The living room is adjacent to the conservatory (approx. 20 m2), a fine place that can easily be used as a work room, TV room, or playroom.
The living room also gives access to the family kitchen (approx. 26 m2). It is outfitted with a granite countertop with 1 ½ kitchen sink, and high quality appliances including a 5 burner gas cooker, a hood, a steam oven, a combi oven, a dishwasher, and a refrigerator and a freezer. You will want to spend a lot of time here as it is a lovely place from which to enjoy the view of “De Vogelplas” and the garden. A section of the kitchen floor has underfloor heating.
From the reception hall you take the stairs to the first floor. The spacious landing gives access to the master bedroom, a second bedroom, the bathroom and the toilet.
The spacious master bedroom (approx. 20 m2) has a beautiful wide view over the “Vliet”. Imagine waking up here! You can enjoy even more of the view from the huge balcony that this room opens out on to. The master bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and beautiful fishbone parquet flooring.
The 2nd bedroom of approx. 20 m2 is equally well proportioned and has built-in cupboards. This bedroom also opens onto the large balcony. From there you have the wide view over the entire area rich in waterways, and you can enjoy the birds as they come and go.
The spacious bathroom has a lot of natural light and has a bathtub, a shower cabin, and a double washstand. The heated floors add to the comfort. There is a separate toilet with a washbasin.
From the landing you take the stairway to the 2nd floor. Windows in the stairwell make it wonderfully light. On this level there are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. There is a beautiful parquet floor.
The 2 bedrooms are both well proportioned (approx. 15 m2 and 16ms resp.). Lovely dormers create extra space. Both rooms have built-in cupboards.
The 2nd bathroom has a shower, a toilet and a washstand. There is also a washing machine connection in here.
From the kitchen you enter the basement. This is a great space to store your wine and to test if the delicious vintages are ready for drinking. In the basement you also have the central heating boiler and access to the crawl space.
A 2 storeyed guest house is available for your guests or your au pair. This guest house has its own front door, but is also accessible through the kitchen in the villa.
The sitting room and the bathroom are on the ground floor. The sitting room (approx. 31 m2) is nicely spacious and has a beautiful oak laminate floor. When this room isn’t used by guests it is an ideal TV room or playroom for your children. That way they can have their own space.
From the small hallway you can access the (3rd) bathroom with a shower cabin, washstand, and toilet.
Via the stairway in the sitting room you go up to the 1st floor of the guest house.
Here are the bedroom, the pantry, and a separate eating/ working area. From this floor, again you have wonderful views out over the surrounding through the large dormer windows.
The attached garage (approx. 26 m2) is large. You have enough room here to store extra items.
With so much land you can enjoy a fantastic garden. On the villa’s terrace you can experience the real outdoor life: you are close to nature and can truly enjoy the seasons. The hobby greenhouse completes the picture.
