This is a rare and very special house on a unique location. The Oosterhoutlaan is well kept secret: the street is almost hidden and connects the Haarlemmerhout woods with the Spaarne river. The street is very beautiful, quiet, spacious and has a unique atmosphere. It is also well situated close to the historical centre of Haarlem and the main roads to Amsterdam and Schiphol. Parking in the street is still permit-free.
The house itself is also unique. Build in 1910 by the renowned architect Van Loghem, it has great style and authenticity. All the living areas are generous and have a good size and height. Unique are also the well-kept, authentic details Van Loghem used in the house inspired by the so called English Arts & Crafts movement. The house still has the original lay out and all details have been well maintained. Examples are the original black and white tilled floors and the authentic, designed by Van Loghem, wooden panelling, the build in cupboards, the fire places and the unique Arts & Crafts build-in sitting area beside the large fire place and the impressive staircase with stained glass windows. The house is also described in all the books about Van Loghem.
While maintaining the many historical elements, the house has been modernized throughout the years. In 2007 the house is extended with a modern garden room, designed by a contemporary architect. This room can be compared with a similar extension in the Teylers museum in Haarlem. The garden room has floor heating, large windows and a beautiful view over the surrounding woods. This room is multifunctional and can be used in various ways, for example as dining room, home office, play room or extra living/TV room. The garden room gives direct access to the beautiful designed back garden with a pond and a waterfall. A place where you can enjoy the afternoon and evening sun, outside diners and children can play on the rural lane situated directly behind the house. The front garden faces south, is also very spacious and offers different terraces and plenty of privacy to enjoy the outdoor life.
Summarized: a beautiful family home with lots of atmosphere and space on a unique location offering lots of comfort, tranquillity and privacy and situated close to all facilities. You are most welcome for a personal viewing!
