This charming and spacious forest villa is surrounded by greenery, in the tranquility of the Vordense woods.
With its black wooden sidings, white shutters and prominent thatched roof, this house has a romantic appearance and fits seamlessly into the wooded surroundings. One with nature, but certainly not very far from civilization: the center of Vorden is about 5 minutes by car, Lochem 10 minutes, and the heart of Zutphen 20 minutes.
Three spacious bedrooms make this house more than suitable as a family home. Another particularly attractive element of this forest villa is the thatched outbuilding next to the house. This was used as a garage, but lends itself well to the realization of -for example- a guesthouse or studio with two rooms and a bathroom. The forest villa is a house for lovers of the outdoors, because it is a great place for walks on the nearby Groote Veld, and also the Lochemse Golfclub is just a stone's throw away.
One step over the threshold and it is immediately clear that this is a house full of special details and atmosphere. The floor in the hall and the kitchen are tiled with historical tiles, the old mantelpiece is made of bricks and both sides are connected by a beautifully aged beam. The beamed ceilings are full of charm. To the right is a toilet, access to the front living room, and a cloakroom. Straight through is the kitchen.
To the right of the hall is the lounge, the front living room. A cozy room with a beamed ceiling and a warm atmosphere by the wood stove and staircase. From the lounge access to a hall with outside door and the spacious basement.
The door to the dining room is pointed arch-shaped, which gives the feeling as if you are in an English country house. The dining room itself is the centre of the house and offers views of the surrounding areas. Very cozy due to the crimson walls.
To the left of the dining room is the kitchen. A cozy kitchen with wooden fronts and a rustic atmosphere. The kitchen has a five-burner gas cooker, a black stone worktop, fridge and oven. The dining room and the study are adjacent to the kitchen. The study is a pleasant, bright room overlooking the orchard.
To the right of the dining room is the rear living room, also with a prominent place for the wood stove in a classic mantelpiece with beautiful details such as Makkumer tiles. The French doors give access to the sun terrace and the beautiful garden.
The staircase in the lounge provides access to the upper floor. On the landing are three bedrooms, the storage room and a bathroom with toilet, shower and bath. The master bedroom is spacious and has a large wardrobe. The dormer window offers a magnificent view over the rear garden and the surrounding landscape.
The large garden is a paradise for garden lovers, with seats and beautiful views everywhere. Besides smaller ponds, there is a large pond at the rear of the house. Here is a garden shed that invites you to sit down and enjoy the natural beauty.
With almost 10,000 m2, the private, completely fenced and mostly wooded plot offers plenty of space for a lovely walk. The adjacent meadow of more than 10,000 m2, with a monumental red beech in the middle, offers ample opportunities for keeping horses.
Vorden is a real gem in the heart of the Achterhoek. It is known as the 8-castle village and is a popular place for cyclists and holidaymakers. Vorden is located in the municipality of Bronckhorst and was - appropriately enough - proclaimed the Walking Municipality of the Year in 2018. Hotel Bakker, for example, is famous for its seasonal game menu. There is a lot to enjoy here...
