Unique opportunity; this historic gem set in green surroundings with a landing stage onto the Rhine.
On the bank of the Rhine opposite the ‘Haagse Schouw’, 10 minutes' cycle ride from the city centre, stands the Rhijnhof country house and estate. The construction of this house with gardens and outbuildings was completed in 1774 by Nicolaas van Campen, a municipal officer from Leiden. A coach house and an orangery formed part of the estate.
The Rhijnhof country house, the orangery and the coach house are all listed buildings now, and are privately occupied. The coach house was divided into its current form around 2000, creating 5 stunning houses and 1 apartment.
Rhijnhofweg 1b offers ca. 156 m2 living area, on a plot of privately owned land measuring 135 m2, a beautiful, sunny (front) garden of ca. 8 x 7.5 m. facing south west, two private parking spaces, storage and the right to moor a boat against the shared landing stage beside the Rhine!
