FOR SALE: voluminous country house adjacent to the Holterberg

Defining architecture of the Delft School. As soon as you drive up the driveway through the electrically operated entrance gate, your gaze is automatically drawn to the stately, high facades of the monumental building "De Zonnebelt". The characteristic windows, the shutters and the high gutter line exude a grandeur with an eye for detail that is characteristic of the architectural style from the 1930s.

This mansion was then built as a practice home for a Holtense veterinarian with authentic features of the Delft School. A recognizable, rather austere but harmonious architectural style that was aimed at blending into the traditional countryside. The house is a particularly cool example of this both externally and on the inside. For this reason it was designated as a National Monument in the 1990s.

Authentic details
In the building you will still find the original layout: all of them atmospheric spaces where, for example, a TV room, music room and office can easily be realized. The architectural details such as the thick outer walls (cavity), wooden door handles on all doors, rod division in the windows, jug scrap on floors and windowsill as well as the solid oak parquet of 90 years old reminds you everywhere of the historic value of this property.

Perfectly maintained
In recent years the building has been thoroughly and completely restored by the current residents. The list of activities carried out is too long to mention, but think for example of new jointing of the walls and chimneys, roof renovation and insulation, installation of burglary resistant hinges and locks, etc. The central heating boiler was replaced in 2018. The building is therefore ready to move in and guarantees a lot of living pleasure.

Lovely gardens, ideal location
On the left side of the main house a garage and two storage rooms have been added with a veranda along the front. To the right is a large walled patio with perfect sun exposure and lots of privacy. In the back garden, which can be closed completely, you can enjoy the many bird species and squirrels in peace.The mansion stands on the edge of the village of Holten.
Due to the high location and the deep front garden with old greenery and rhododendron, there is a beautiful view over the countryside. At the rear you can walk up the Holterberg with direct access to the De Sallandse Heuvelrug National Park. The property is located a few minutes by car from the A1 and a few minutes' walk from the Holten train station.


Curious about this spacious, well-maintained home with historic value in a perfect location with the special atmosphere of the thirties and the tax / financial benefits of a national monument?

Then we cordially invite you for a viewing. Let yourself be touched by this unique object!
