Hoge Rijndijk 128, Leiden
Very distinctive, spacious corner townhouse with deep back garden, shed and rear access.
This excellently maintained house dating from 1892 still has many of its original stylistic elements such as leaded glass windows, ornamental plaster ceilings, attractive en-suite separation, etc. The house is approx. 1 meter wider than most of the other houses on this part of the Hoge Rijndijk, which is evident in all the rooms and in the total floor area of no less than 233m2.
The house is also located very favourably; in only a few minutes you can reach the A4 motorway (Amsterdam - The Hague) as well as the N11 in the direction of Utrecht. The centre of Leiden is only 5 minutes by bicycle and the nearest supermarket is a short walk away. Various (international) primary and secondary schools as well as day nurseries are located in the vicinity; Cronesteyn Park and Roomburg Park, a selection of sport facilities and the Lammenschans railway station are close to hand.
Layout: Front door, vestibule with meter cupboard and beautiful vestibule door with engraved glass leading to the long hallway with toilet, cloak cupboard and understair cupboard with access to the cellar of approx. 5 m2. Spacious living- and dining room with original en-suite partition with leaded glass doors and glass-fronted cupboards, 2 attractive original fireplaces, ornamental plaster ceilings and bow window. This is a very light and airy space thanks to the high windows and the windows in the gable wall. To the rear, beyond the dining room, separated by a glass partition with double doors, there is another spacious light room suitable for various uses such as an office or extra sitting or dining room. The French doors lead into the garden. The kitchen to the rear of the property is roomy and modern, with a marble floor and all the usual appliances. Beyond the kitchen lies a small utility room with extra worktop and double sinks.
First floor: landing, 2 built-in cupboards, two very spacious bedrooms (with original fireplace) and beautiful large windows. Between the two rooms lies an en-suite dressing room with bathroom with shower and washbasin. A storage space of approx. 2.4 x 1.2m lies above the bathroom. The large family bathroom at the rear has a shower, large bath, toilet, bidet, urinal and double washbasin. To the front of the house is a laundry room with connections for washing machine and dryer and a double sink.
Second floor: generous-sized landing, central heating boiler cupboard (Atag HR dated 2004), very large bedroom across the entire width of the house at the front. There are a further 3 smaller bedrooms on this floor, all fitted with large Velux windows. In the roof space above 2 of the bedrooms there is a storage space of approx. 4.5 x 1.7m.
There is a small garden to the front of the house. The back garden is sunny and bright and approx. 19 metres deep. At the end of the back garden is a large brick-built shed approx. 4.4 x 2.6m. The garden lies to the north but is deep enough to enjoy the sun all day. As the house is a corner property, the west side is entirely open giving you sun in the garden until late in the evening.
All in all, a very attractive, exceptional and well-maintained house; certainly worth viewing!
