The country house was built in 2014 and meets all the demands of modern living and, to be truthful, a great deal more besides. After all, it is not very often that you come across a newly built country house that has been constructed so precisely and with a real eye for detail. Read, look and marvel!
‘Rhoderlanden’ country estate
‘Rhoderlanden’ country estate is located in the attractive hedgerow landscape between Oldenzaal and Denekamp, bordering the nature reserve called ‘Het Roderveld’, to which the country estate partially owes its name. The many rhododendrons were the inspiration for including an ‘h’ in the name.
The estate consists not only of the fabulous country house, but an equally characteristic and modern office building which has its historic roots way back in the 20th century and a splendid former farmhouse which has now been furnished as a multicultural space. The estate also includes a beech forest, glorious plants and shrubs and newly created fields and meadows.
The estate is classified under the Estates Act 1928 [Natuurschoonwet 1928] and that means there are many fiscal benefits.
The Country House
With its red bricks and natural stone damp course, the stunning country house was built in 2014 and has a volume of 1,400 m³. It has all the luxury and comfort you might expect. There is, for example, a magnificent winter room with a bay window, feature hearth and open fire and accompanying oak floor and a light summer room with attractive windows looking out onto the garden and a veranda with a view of the beech forest. It would be a wonderful spot to spend your summer evenings!
However, let us start in the hall, which is an imposing entrance and cloakroom where you immediately notice the finish and details. There are high double skirting boards, a beautiful oak herringbone parquet floor which is finished with edging and a border, matching door hardware and attractive wooden stairs leading to the first floor.
Via the double doors you enter the spacious lounge and dining room with fitted cupboards, beautifully finished wooden window sills and stunning plastered ceilings and feature cornices. The amount of light in this room makes it an extremely pleasant place to be. The same could, in fact, be said of every room in this house.
The spacious kitchen diner is fully equipped and has a tasteful blue Belgian limestone clinker floor, an open fireplace and a beautiful wooden ceiling with beaded panelling. Just like the rest of the ground floor, the kitchen has underfloor heating. The utility room is stylishly finished with fitted cupboards. It offers washing and drying facilities and has its own hydraulic washing/goods lift to the 1st floor. You can also access the garden and veranda via the utility room.
The first floor is divided by an enchanting long corridor with a seat at one end where you can enjoy the magnificent view of the forests and meadows. On either side of the corridor are the bedrooms, linen room and bathroom for the children. In addition to the four bedrooms there is also a spacious dressing room which has a wonderful high ceiling with an extremely high-quality finish. Double oak doors provide access to the huge master bedroom with French doors leading to a Juliet balcony and a fantastic view. Here you will wake up every day with a holiday feeling! Next to the dressing room is the bathroom with free-standing bath, spacious walk-in shower and a double blue Belgian limestone washbasin with built-in taps and unit.
The second floor can be accessed via a fixed staircase and is currently used as an attic.
The garden is surrounded by beautiful high trees, the beech forest and romantic paths to the nearby, newly created meadows and the nature reserve known as ‘Het Roderveld’. Walking around here is like being in a fairytale!
The ‘De Loods’ office building
The history of this unique building extends way back into the 20th century. Back then the building and the land were owned by Mr H.J. Blijdenstein, but ownership passed to others after his death in 1923. Now, almost 100 years later, it is a completely modernised office building with approximately 255 m² of usable floor space. There are several, extremely attractive offices and workspaces, a fixed staircase to the first floor with more workspaces and the building has all the infrastructure fittings required for a modern office, such as air-conditioning and fibre optic Internet.
The former farmhouse
Built in around 1828, this is the oldest building on the estate. Although it used to serve as accommodation in the past, it has since been tastefully refurbished and is now a multifunctional building fitted with all mod cons. The space can be used for receptions, meetings, brainstorm sessions or a team building day and is, of course, equipped with fibre optic Internet. The magnificent surroundings are also suitable for all kinds of activities. The former farmhouse has its own kitchen, bathroom, cosy seating area with open fireplace and, at the rear, a spacious garage in which to store tools.
In short, this is a magnificent country estate offering a whole host of possibilities, from luxury living and a fantastic workplace, to tax benefits. It is a place where you can create your own unique new home and work environment. After all, how great will it be to run your own company in ‘De Loods’ and combine living and working at this stunning location? Alternatively you may be thinking about starting a luxury Bed & Breakfast in the former farmhouse.
