In a beautiful wooded and quiet area is this detached, contemporary villa with a multi-functional outbuilding, shed, garden house, double carport and wonderful wrap-around garden. The property has six bedrooms and is extremely well-suited for combined work/ residential use, a large family, live-in parents, etc.
This area of Hilversum is characterized by its lush surroundings, only a few minutes' walk from the woods, close to the Hoorneboegse Hei heath and is dotted with breathtaking villas. A quiet place to live, yet only 20-30 minutes from Amsterdam and Utrecht both by car and train.

The living/dining room is truly expansive. Facing the garden - the area that is currently used as the dining room - is a large window facade with several sliding doors, offering sweeping views of the garden. Opening the sliding doors during the summer will 'bring the outdoors in'. Despite is generous dimensions, the living room is cozy and intimate due to the fireplace and shuttered windows.

The kitchen also features an elevated dishwasher (for easy access) and a stand-alone American refrigerator/freezer with an ice cube dispenser. The kitchen leads to the pantry with three large cupboards, the fittings for the laundry machine and dryer and a small kitchen unit. There is also a back door entrance via the pantry.
The ground floor features a large bedroom with a wardrobe wall, shutters and a private bathroom with a bath/whirlpool, separate shower, toilet, bidet, double vanity and shutters.
First floor: landing with the utility room with the central heating kettle and mechanical ventilation unit. This floor accommodates a generous five bedrooms, two of which are extremely spacious. All bathrooms access the balcony and/or the rooftop terrace. These offer gorgeous views of the garden and tall trees. The bathroom is fitted with a shower, vanity, toilet and shutters.
The detached outbuilding (previously a double garage) is used as an office by the current owner, but is also ideal for use as a studio apartment for live-in parents, guesthouse, au-pair quarters, home gym, hobby area, etc. The outbuilding is fully insulated and is fitted with its own thermostat, electric heating, underfloor heating, meter cupboard, shutters and water.
Adjacent to the outbuilding is a 2-car carport, and there is a separate storage shed with full electrics behind the outbuilding.

The property features a long driveway with parking for 6-7 cars, a double carport and a wonderful garden with a large southwest-facing patio, lawn and gorgeous trees to all sides. Due to the fact that Larixlaan rises toward Hoorneboegse Hei heath, all plots vary in elevation, ensuring optimum privacy. This is the perfect place to kick back after a busy day, or go for a quick jog in the woods or on the heath. The garden has a sprinkler system that taps from the property's own water source.
