Sophisticated rural living close to The Hague, Utrecht, and Rotterdam!
This grand thatched-roofed villa (approx. 238 m2 floor space) lies at the edge of Bleiswijk. The family home was built in 2003 and has 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
The residence has beautiful views out over the wide waterway ‘De Lange Vaart’ and into the distance. It stands across from the nature reserve ‘Bleiswijkse Fles’ with its grazing highland cattle. This area constitutes the ‘green’ connection between the Rottermeren area and Zoetermeer.
You can skate, take walks, and cycle in ‘Bleiswijkse Fles’. The kingfishers have also discovered this area. For nature lovers a boardwalk winds its way through the reeds along the waterside.
The nearby nature reserve and recreation area Rottermeren is unique and multifaceted. The age-old river Rotte is the backbone of the area. Here you will find marinas, restaurants, art, outdoor sporting facilities, and everywhere, places to sunbathe, cycle, swim, walk, canoe, picnic, go horse riding, and discover nature.
Bleiswijk, an area of the Lansingerland municipality, is strategically situated on the A12 a short distance from cities such as The Hague, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Delft, Gouda, and Zoetermeer. At the end of 2018 Zoetermeer and Lansingerland will get a unique station: trains, RandstadRail, buses, cars and bicycles will be connected to each other by a viaduct over the A12. With free parking for 700 cars, the station will offer travel transfers/ connections saving travellers time. The cities lie very nearby, yet living in Bleiswijk feels like rural living in a lovely place with a village character with every desirable amenity.
You drive onto the property through the remote controlled, wrought iron gates. There is enough room here to park several cars.
You come up the stately steps at the front of the villa to the covered entrance and enter the spacious reception hall with its guest toilet, closet space, and stairwell. To facilitate enjoyment of the surroundings the house’s living space is on the 1st floor. From the reception hall you reach the large living room with its attached open kitchen. There are windows on 4sides.
The L-shaped living room (approx. 51 m2) has a solid wood floor. There is a cosy sitting area with a gas fireplace. The dining area is situated in the sunny, spacious bay window. Here the light comes in on 3 sides. It is a wonderful space. From the living room you have access to the huge, south/west facing terrace.
The living room adjoins the large open kitchen (approx. 24 m2). This is fitted with granite counter tops, an apothecary cupboard, and a truly complete range of built-in appliances (including an oven, microwave, steam oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, a 5-burner gas hob with a wok burner, a stainless-steel hood, and a close-in boiler). From the kitchen you can enjoy panoramic views of the unique so-called Molenviergang (4 windmills set up to pump water from the polder in 4 stages), and the ever-changing nature: scenery you can never tire of.
The hardwood stairs lead to the ground floor and the 2nd storey.
On the ground floor you enter the building via the garage or the side door. You enter a large hall. Here there is space for hanging coats, the stairway to the 1st floor with a cupboard built in under it. The stylish light oak laminate flooring covering the entire ground floor stands out immediately. There is also underfloor heating throughout this level. From the hallway you have access to the master bedroom, the conservatory, the bathroom, and the double garage with a connected laundry/utility room.
The generous master bedroom (approx. 20 m2) has doors opening on to the back garden. There is enough space for many cupboards.
The bathroom next door has a shower a washstand, a hanging toilet, and a designer radiator.
At the back there is a conservatory (over 15 m2). The space is perfect for a fitness room or a TV room or playroom for the children. Here too there are doors to the back garden.
The laundry/utility room is equipped kitchen unit, a refrigerator, and the washing machine and dryer connections.
The double indoor garage (approx. 34 m2) has a heated floor.
From the hall you take the hardwood stairs to the 2nd floor. From the landing you access 3 spacious bedrooms, the 2nd bathroom and the central heating space. If so desired, children growing up here have their own space.
Bedrooms 2 and 3 are both approx. 18 m2 and particularly attractive. The rooms have built-in cupboards behind sliding doors along the wall, built-in lights, and a lovely round window. From one of the rooms there is a wonderful view of the waterway, the Molenviergang and the foot/cycle path.
The 4th bedroom (approx. 14 m2) is also sizeable, and currently in use as a music room. This room too has a lot of cupboard space.
