Monumental family residence in an outstanding location!
This spacious, four-storey townhouse (approx. 343 m2) is warm and homely. The residence was built in 1904 in a beautiful, understated chic architectural style, and has a good width (over 7.3 m). It has a large, walled back garden with a good view through the houses behind. This exceptional house offers so many opportunities. There is a self-contained guest area on the 2nd floor that is perfect for guests or an au pair. The house is also suitable for conversion into two homes. It is pleasant, sunny, and light.
The location is ideal, in the attractive and very desirable Duinoord area. This monument status city neighbourhood is known for the characteristic terrace mansions built around 1900. The area has a chic look and feel with its many decorative elements, like cornices, stained glass, bay windows, balconies, and dormers. It’s a wonderful place for a family home.
You are close to every imaginable amenity here. It is very close to the popular Frederik Hendriklaan, ‘the Fred’. Around the corner is Sweelinkplein and the lovely Reinkenstraat with its appealing shops, cafes, and specialist stores. It is the ideal location in which to live: close to the lively centre of The Hague, yet in a quiet spot. Access roads to Rotterdam, Utrecht, and Amsterdam are within easy reach, as is public transport. Scheveningen’s beach, sea, and dunes are a cycle ride away.
You enter the house via the exceptionally cavernous entrance hall. The wood panelling and marble floors are unmissable. The entrance hall is wonderfully light thanks to the large window. Here you’ll find the renovated meter cupboard. There is also place for several bicycles.
You go through a door into the hall. From here you have access to the corridor and the imposing, light stairwell with its beautiful staircase. Both the corridor and the hall have beautiful marble floors. From the corridor you go into the ‘kamer-en-suite’ (two rooms flowing one into the other via a wide doorway), the kitchen, the bathroom, and the toilet. The basement is accessible from here via a stairway.
The capacious kamer-en-suite (over 55 m2) is as it should be: a good width, high ceilings with (at the back) pretty cornices, a conservatory and sliding-door separations with original, beautifully finished hinges and handles. The front and back rooms each have an authentic fireplace. The sliding French doors in the conservatory lead out to the terrace and the fine garden. This kamer-en-suite has a good vibe – it’s a wonderful atmosphere to enjoy.
The neighbouring kitchen has a U-shaped, simple kitchen unit with built-in refrigerator and dishwasher. There is a flagstone floor. The kitchen has a door leading out to the back garden.
The separate toilet is tiled with authentic tiles. Next to it is a modern shower room with a washbasin.
You come up the stairs to the landing on the first floor. Here you find the master bedroom with its adjoining dressing room and bathroom, and two other bedrooms. The front and back rooms are separated from each other by stylish kamer-en-suite doors. This floor is superb for use as a ‘parent’s own floor’.
The master bedroom is situated at the back of the house. This bedroom has a conservatory extension making the room extra spacious (approx. 31 m2) and light. From the master bedroom you go into what was formerly a kitchen (approx.12 m2). it is currently in use as an ironing room, but could be fitted out as a spacious dressing room for extra comfort.
From the dressing room you go into the bathroom with a shower, washbasin, and the washing machine connection. There are authentic tiles on the floor. Inside the bathroom there is a separate room with a toilet.
Bedrooms 2 and 3 are at the front of the house. The large 2nd bedroom has an exceptional, marble and wood fireplace. The 3rd bedroom next to it is somewhat smaller (approx. 11 m2), but still spacious, and has a connecting door to the 2nd. This room is currently used as a work room.
You take the stairs to the light landing on the 2nd floor. This floor is also wonderfully light. You can use your creativity to uncover the possibilities for its rooms. There is a kamer-en-suite, a side room, a family kitchen a toilet and connections for a shower.
The large room at the front (approx. 21 m2) is suitable for use as a cosy family/TV room. This way the children have their own space. This room is interconnected to the side bedroom (approx. 11 m2) next to it at the front of the house.
The large area at the back can be used as self-contained suite for guests or an au pair. In the back room (over 20 m2) is a gorgeous fireplace. There is a beautiful parquet floor throughout the kamer-en-suite. Sliding doors lead out to the large balcony where you can enjoy the outdoor feeling and the wide view.
The back room goes through into the pleasant kitchen (approx. 12 m2). This completes the suite. The kitchen has an L-shaped kitchen unit and a large storage cupboard. In the storage cupboard are the connections for a shower, should placing one be desired. Additionally, there is a separate toilet. You and your guest or au pair are thus assured of freedom and privacy.
From the corridor you take the stairs to the 3rd floor. The skylight ensures that the landing is always deliciously sunny. The sunlight coming in lights up the entire stairwell. On this floor there are 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a separate toilet, and a storage/dressing room. Perfect for your children to have their own floor.
All the bedrooms (approx. 19 m2, 14 m2, and 11 m2 resp.) on this floor are well proportioned and pleasantly light. The bedrooms both at the front and the back each have a dormer.
The spacious bathroom has 2 washstands, a large walk-in shower, a designer radiator, and a place for a washing machine. The light coming in through the skylight is most agreeable. On this level there is also a separate toilet with a small washbasin.
The storage/dressing room at the back of the house has built-in cupboards. From this room there is a door to the second balcony.
From the corridor on the ground floor you take the stairs to the large basement. The ceiling height here is enough to stand in, and the room is dry. Hence, it is a good place to store your things.
Through the doors in the conservatory you come out to the especially pleasing walled garden. It is more than 10 m deep and has a lovely view through the houses behind. You have all the space to enjoy time here with family and friends. You will certainly enjoy the quiet, sun, and green!
