Sunny, semi-detached villa with 6/7 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, garage, and a gorgeous, expansive - ca. 926m2 - private garden.
Located in one of The Hague’s most beautiful districts, the prestigious Klattepark neighbourhood, this delightful home boasts a rich history (one illustrious former occupant was the founder of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Albert Plesman). Situated in an area once dominated by dunes, this exclusive enclave was designed in 1911 by the famous Dutch architect H.P. Berlage, and soon became a favourite among families from Rotterdam and The Hague.
The Klattepark borders the Nieuwe Scheveningse Bosjes woodlands, the Waalsdorpervlakte nature reserve, and the leafy open spaces of the Hubertuspark – an exceptionally green and quiet area offering proximity to both the city and the seaside. Nearby sporting facilities include a field hockey and tennis club, as well as riding stables.
A driveway leads to the entrance at the side of the house, where the front door opens to a vestibule and hall with a guest lavatory and coat cupboard. From here, double doors open to four good-sized interconnected reception areas. At the front are a large living room and a sun-filled sitting room with a fireplace. At the rear is the lovely dining room with French doors to the terrace/garden, a separate (music) room, also with a fireplace, an adjoining pantry leading to the eat-in kitchen which has access to the garden, and a separate laundry room. A spacious, standing-height cellar houses wine racks, a safe, storage space, and the central heating unit.
At the end of the driveway are a detached garage and an adjacent door to the garden with a bicycle shed and a charming elevated pavilion. The garden itself is arranged over different levels and borders an undeveloped dune, creating an ambiance of fine outdoor living.
L-shaped stairs with a small room off the interim landing ascend from the living room to the 1st floor, where there is a landing with natural light and cupboards. At the front are a bedroom with a big balcony overlooking the Tapijtweg and Violenweg and a bright family room/bedroom. A large bedroom facing the back has French doors to a balcony with views over the beautiful garden, an en-suite bathroom (also accessible from the landing) with bath, shower, and double washbasin, and a separate wc. An adjacent dressing room leads to another spacious bedroom and 2nd bathroom with shower, washbasin, wc, and bidet.
The top floor comprises 2 large bedrooms, one with a dormer, and one with access to the enormous attic, as well as a third bathroom with shower, washbasin, and wc. There is ample storage under the eaves on two sides.
