Close to Amsterdam, on the open water, with a constantly captivating view!

This dream villa (approx. 390 m2), renovated by an architect, is uniquely located on Brassemermeer. The wide view out over the water and dappled sky is always captivating. A fantastic plot of land measuring 2590 m2 ensures huge outdoor space and a lot of privacy. You can moor your boat on your own jetty, and there are many lakes and ponds nearby. Here you are one with nature. An amazing spot for anyone who enjoys water sports, quiet, and beautiful views!

The villa is centrally located for Amsterdam, Schiphol, Den Haag, and Utrecht. From Rijnsaterwoude it’s just a few minutes’ drive to the A4 and the A44. In nearby Alphen aan den Rijn there are various child day care centres, primary and secondary schools, and in Roelofarendsveen there is the Bonaventuracollege. Furthermore, in Kaag en Brassem municipality, there is a large and diverse array of sports facilities, including several football associations, a swimming pool, a gymnastics association, an athletics association, a hockey association, a tennis association, and a sports complex.

You come up the curving gravel drive to the forecourt. The imposing pond with its fountain is a real eyecatcher. The front garden has manicured hedges and a flagpole. It offers enough space for parking.

You enter the residence’s light foyer with closet space, guest toilet, extensive meter cupboard, safe, and a lot of storage space. The foyer opens into the spacious reception hall with the stairs to the first floors. From the hall you have access to the office area and the other (bed)rooms on the ground floor.

The office space has an amazing view over the garden and the water, and is divided into a meeting area and a seating area. The ceiling in the seating area is at double height thanks to the architectural void on the 1st floor, reached by a stairway. Next to the seating area there is the filing/copier space and from there is access to the garage.

The other rooms consist of 3 rooms and a climate-controlled wine room, all behind large sliding doors. The 3 rooms are currently serving as a garden kitchen, archive, storage/hobby/studio, respectively. These rooms look out on, and open onto, the garden. All of the rooms can easily be transformed into beautiful bedrooms and a bathroom.

The spacious toilet has a washbasin.

Via the spiral staircase in the reception hall, or via the stairway in the seating area, you come up to the 1st floor. Openness, light, and views are the main features of this storey. Here you find living spaces, private chambers, and the guest room. All spaces flow seamlessly into each other and can be separated from each other by ceiling height (sliding) doors. It is an architectural masterpiece.

In the open living space, there are a beautiful sitting area with a fire place, a dining space, a large workspace/studio, and a library. Everywhere you see ‘smart’ bespoke cupboards. The mid-point of the space is the void, through which there is a pleasing connection with the ground floor. Through a large window there is a breath-taking view over Braassemermeer. Here you experience the nature and seasons at their best.

The partially open kitchen has bespoke cupboards and is equipped with a stainless steel worksurface, many drawers, and various built-in appliances, including an oven, a microwave, a grill, 2 ceramic burners, 2 gas burners, and an extraction hood. There are handy built-in rubbish bins in which waste can be separated. A cosy dining area makes it all complete.

In the private rooms there are a work room, a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a separate toilet, and space for the washing machine and dryer. Here also you find many bespoke cupboards. There is large window and sliding door to the balcony. Here too an unrivalled, beautiful view.

The en-suite bathroom can be closed off from the master bedroom with a sliding door. Here there is a bathtub, a walk-in shower, and a double washstand. Stylish marble has been used.

The guest bedroom has excellent dimensions and has its own bathroom. This bathroom has a shower and a washbasin.

On the living level there is a separate guest toilet.

The gorgeous back garden has a large glass-shielded terrace. In the shelter you can enjoy the outdoors. A boardwalk leads you over the large, reed-ringed water feature to the jetty on the Braassemermeer.

The double garage with electrically controlled overhead door is accessible from inside and has enough extra space for bicycles or other articles.
