Practically detached, characterful and exceptionally well-maintained villa in a top location
This villa is situated in a quiet avenue with one-way traffic and with views over a wide watercourse and extensive greenery. This residence benefits from a plot of land that is large by local standards, measuring 385 m2, and the rear garden is perfectly positioned to the SW, offering a high degree of privacy.
Crossing the road, you enter the park of Kasteel Oud Poelgeest and the De Leidse Hout. The various sports facilities, schools, and shops are also within walking or cycling distance.
The property itself offers very practical and attractive accommodation: the ground floor alone measures over 80 m2!
Accommodation: entrance, hall, spacious toilet with sink, hallway with under-stair cupboard. The hallway gives access at the front of the building to the stylish living room with attractive bay-window, fireplace with sandstone mantelpiece, a lovely oak parquet floor dating from 1948 and patio doors to the side garden. On the side towards the main garden, the hallway leads you to the large kitchen-diner with room for a long dining table, plenty of natural light, and patio doors to the garden. The kitchen is well equipped, including an AGA stove (offered with the house). The kitchen, hallway and toilet have an attractive tiled floor with under-floor heating.
Finally, the ground floor offers another splendid, light and stylish (multi-functional) workroom/office with its own parquet floor and doors opening onto the garden.
First floor: landing, bathroom with under-floor heating, shower, toilet and washbasin. Spacious master bedroom on the side facing the garden with its own washbasin and doors opening onto a small balcony. Two good-sized bedrooms at the front of the house.
Second floor: the staircase leads to a landing with storage area and the washing machine connections. There are bedrooms both at the front and at the rear underneath the sloping roof, with a dormer window. The rear bedroom is equipped with its own washbasin.
- In 2003 the residence was completely renovated and modernised, with all the electrics replaced. In doing so, all the rooms were connected to UTP cables and inter-linked smoke detectors were installed.
- In 2015 the whole facade was cleaned, re-pointed and impregnated. At the same time all the rain pipes and gutters were replaced and fitted with perforated gutter protectors. The balcony was also completely replaced in 2015.
- In 2017 the living room floor was insulated with Tonzon floor insulation and in 2019 the roof of the hallway/shed was completely replaced (planking and tiles) and insulated.
All in all, a perfect, practically detached family home in a superb, peaceful location in Oegstgeest; definitely worth viewing.
