Wassenaar, Raadhuislaan 1
A unique house with the character of a medieval castle;
That is what this national monument villa from 1923 is. The former embassy house, built in Neo-Dutch Renaissance style, was designed by architect M.E. van de Wall from Wassenaar.

This unique house is located on a very generous plot of private land of 5,725mē, within walking distance of the center of Wassenaar and nearby the scenic forest of the historic country estate De Paauw.
Year of construction 1923; Living area 641m2; Volume 2,825m3; Lot 5,725m2
