The Heuvel in Oosterhout is a square, closed off on 4 sides, that is one of the most beautiful squares in Brabant in terms of urban planning. This characteristic Heuvelplein in the centre of Oosterhout is home to an authentic Jugendstil town house built in 1901, with a completely enclosed city garden and 2 garages that offer parking opportunities for 4 cars. There are multiple historic town houses on this beautiful Heuvelplein, among which are the old 'Vrijheidshuis' (freedom house) and the former municipal building. The current façades of the surrounding patrician houses date from the 19th and 20th century, but most houses possess an older centre.
This cellar has a floor area of approximately 200m² and standing room is created with 'troggewelven' (a traditional type of vaulting) and paved with grey-black tiles. The entirety is subdivided into several, practically laid-out areas, including the original wine cellar. The division of the height, both below and above ground level, has created light and extremely useful rooms. The cellar also has an exterior exit in the direction of the right side wall.
The stone stairs, with corner stone and a front door with wood panelling and windows with lattice bars, open to the reception hall with embossed panelling and marble floor. The hall also has an original, monumental, wooden staircase, as well as a beautifully restored ornamental ceiling and 'vide' that are just as old. The hall leads to the reception room. Also reachable from the hall are three beautiful rooms ('Salon', 'Suite' and 'Orangery') that can be separated with original sliding panel doors. The Salon has an area of approximately 36m² and the Suite of 34m². Both rooms have oak-wood floors and a mantelpiece made from natural stone, while the 'Suite' is fitted with beautiful stained glass windows.
The Orangery (approximately 34m²) also has wooden flooring and a magnificent fireplace. The French doors (which have stained glass) provide access to the garden.
The kitchen (approximately 21m²) is outfitted with modern kitchen equipment and matching cabinets as well as underfloor heating.
The service entrance can be reached from the right side wall and provides access to the hallway housing the passenger lift. The service entrance also provides access to the tiled toilet with handbasin and the kitchen.
Via the historic, beautifully made staircase with decoratively cut balusters, the landing is reached, which provides access to the living room, a cosy pantry, 2 bedrooms, the bathroom and a spacious hallway (previously a bedroom) where the passenger lift is located.
The charming media room (approximately 17m²) has a view of the beautiful Heuvelplein and provides access to the balcony with curved wrought-iron balustrade on decorative consoles. The media room is connected to the cosy living room via double panelled sliding doors. This room (approximately 37m²) has a beautiful, antique wooden fireplace and oak flooring.
The pantry (approximately 23m²) includes a kitchen unit that fits the atmosphere and has several kitchen utilities as well as the necessary practical shelving.
The (guest) bedroom (approximately 19m²) has several built-in closets.
The (master) bedroom (approximately 24m²) is situated at the back (north side).
