Fantastic family home on the water!
This spacious (family)home is situated next to open water and is located in the beloved upscale residential area “Zuiderhout”, bordering Heemstede. The beautiful south-facing garden features a pond and multiple terraces on the Crayenestervaart canal. The villa is constructed widthwise, with a characteristic 11 metre wide facade, which offers plenty of privacy and wonderful natural light. The indoor garage has been fully transformed into a living area with its own bathroom, ideal for an au-pair, as an office space, studio, or guesthouse. A roofed bicycle storage can be found in the front garden, and there is a free standing stone and wood shed in the back garden.
The 22 metres long garden with shadow-rich and sunny terraces, features its own dock (11 metres wide) with a swimming ladder and a landing for your boat; you can sail onto the Spaarne river just like that!
The lively “Jan van Goyenstraat” with shops, restaurants, cafes and hotels is right around the corner. The “Binnenweg” mall, the “Haarlemmerhout”, which has a petting zoo, sports fields and several schools are within walking distance.
The historical Haarlem city centre is a bike ride away, as are the forest, beach and dunes.
In short, this is a prime location!
Roads to Amsterdam, Schiphol Airport and The Hague are easily accessible.
