Beautiful open apartment over two floors with lots of light, lots of space and above all a lot of ambiance and authentic details.
This very characteristic mansion built under Neo-Renaissance architecture from around 1900 has the characteristic features that you see in many buildings on the outskirts of the center of Leiden from the same period: a lot of detailing in the masonry facades and frames, high windows and spacious, high floors.
In 1935 the building was converted into two residential units 18 and 18A. In 2003 the whole was officially split into 2 apartments, whereby the current owners bought the double upstairs apartment. A wonderfully spacious apartment with front garden, private entrance, south-facing balcony and a sun deck with 360° panoramic views on the flat roof. After the purchase, a lot has been done and improved over the years. Particular attention has been paid to the preservation and restoration of the original, but also to the modern requirements of convenience. Very special is the HR++ glass that is placed in the existing casement and sliding windows at the front.
The small details are still present everywhere: panel doors, door handles, fireplaces, stucco ceilings, window handles, en-suite doors, stained glass, wood-worked doorposts, window frames and panelling. And an original staircase with fantastic light on the spacious landings.
The Haagweg is located just outside the 'singels', a stone's throw from the Rhine and a few minutes' walk from the vivid city center of Leiden. Museums, restaurants, terraces, specialty shops, childcare, primary and secondary schools, cultural facilities, catering establishments and various university buildings are within walking distance, as are Leiden Central Railway Station, the LUMC and the Bio Science Park. In short: an excellent base for city and culture enthusiasts. The Haagweg leads directly to the N206 and is therefore very easily accessible. Via the A4 and A44 you can quickly drive to cities such as Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Amsterdam. Schiphol Airport can also be reached within 20 minutes.
The basis of the apartment is good and on some points even excellent, but there are still a few things that need to be picked up. This gives the new owner the space to implement his or her own taste in the layout and finishi. You are therefore invited to come and view!
