In the middle of the country, in beautiful IJsselstein, this very well maintained, detached and characteristic city villa 'Casa Nova' with spacious detached residence on a plot of almost 1000 m² comes up for sale. A unique opportunity for home occupation, guest house, studio or double occupancy etc.! The house exudes allure with its various preserved details such as beautiful stained-glass windows, authentic granite floors, shutters, panel doors and the typical glazed bricks in the facade. In 2004, the fully equipped, well-insulated detached residence (approx. 57 m²) with basement was added next to the villa. Of course, the architectural style of Casa Nova was taken into account. This annex makes it suitable for various purposes! The stately and classic city villa has a rich history. Once upon a time, this villa was built for the parents of the neighbouring gentleman farmer, making this 1995 municipal monument part of IJsselstein's rich history. The villa and detached residence is situated on a generous and beautifully landscaped plot of almost 1000 m²! With an impressive, historic chestnut tree as its striking centrepiece.
