One of the most beautiful places in Brabant with a rich history. This characteristic farmhouse, built around 1700, can best be characterized.
The farmhouse has survived well over the past three centuries and offers new residents a wealth of space, space for keeping animals and an excellent opportunity to combine living and working. The farmhouse has a capacity of more than 2,800 m³ and is surrounded by approximately 7.3 hectares (possibly extendable to 10.5 hectares) of contiguous private land. Certainly a beautiful object for horse lovers.
This country estate is located in the outskirts of Esch; a friendly village that lies in the triangle Vught, Boxtel and Haaren. Esch has a cozy Brabant village center with a market square, neighborhood supermarket and a few catering establishments; there is also a daycare center and a football club in the village. The outside area is extensive and the Essche Stream winds through the landscape here. The surrounding fashionable places Vught and Oisterwijk offer all the necessary facilities and within ten minutes you are on the highway with good connections to Den Bosch, Eindhoven and Tilburg.
Drive up the romantic winding driveway, enjoy your own lands on the left and right and the accompanying silence and space. Relaxing in Brabant, it is still possible at this country estate.

The overall renovation was carried out around 20 years ago with a feel for the rich history and offers all the living comfort that you are looking for. In the large hall, the large void with the stairs is the 'eye catcher'; the sturdy beamed ceiling, the wooden supporting structure and the farmers' tiled floor all contribute to the robust rural appearance. To the right of the hall is a practical part with the meter cupboard, cloakroom and toilet room.
The living area consists of a sitting room, dining room, upstairs room, kitchen diner and a separate TV room. And let's not forget the wine cellar. Prominent in the middle of the living room is a sturdy fireplace with fireplace; a crackling fire makes the real outdoor life very pleasant inside too. The heavy beams on which the farm is built are more than 300 years old and are still in excellent condition. The high ceilings, the surprisingly large incidence of light and the magnificent view of the surrounding farmlands make this farmhouse a wonderful place to live.
The master bedroom is on the ground floor; this large bedroom has optimal contact with the garden through a sliding door and also adjacent to its own dressing room with a spacious bathroom. This bathroom has a corner bath, shower, double sink and separate toilet.
The large utility room is easily accessible from the porch; this practical space has a wide sink and plenty of storage space, no farm can do without. Behind the utility room is a 2nd hall with the central heating / storage space and the 'de Deel' access. This enormous indoor space houses the horse stables, but also serves as a garage.
The Deel is more than 13.5 meters wide, has several large access doors at the front and can easily be used for alternative purposes such as living or office.

The hall with the large staircase and the vide benefits from the abundance of sunlight that enters the farmhouse through two skylights. The quality of living on the ground floor is also fully present on the first floor. The large landing offers access to three bedrooms and a separate toilet. This large landing is used as a reading, music or study area.
The first bedroom is located on the left and in addition to a window in the side wall also has a dormer window, two closets, a sink with storage furniture and a private shower room. In addition to a dormer window, the second bedroom has a large skylight with a beautiful view over the Landelands. The third bedroom is on the other side of the farm and has its own shower room and access to a large storage room. This is easy to use as an extra room.
From 'de Deel' you have access to a large attic via a separate staircase. This storage attic can also be converted into a studio, office or extra bedroom if desired.

There are several terraces around the farmhouse, a vegetable garden, an ornamental garden, a huge lawn, a beautiful pond (large enough for fishing or for a small rowing boat) and two outbuildings. The pavement, the gravel and the plants support the characteristic appearance of the farmhouse; it is absolutely pleasant to live here.
A detached, thatched garage has an adjacent covered terrace. The second outbuilding stands next to the horse's walker and was once used as a bakehouse but now serves as a practical storage room.
For keeping horses, ponies or sheep, there are several contiguous meadows that are surrounded by trees, ditches and / or wooded banks.
