Unique detached farmhouse with annex, situated along the river “Zijl”.

This stunning detached farmhouse immediately calls to mind a number of superlatives, such as;

Unique: this property truly deserves this epithet, given that in the surrounding area there are not more than a handful of comparable properties which combine space, privacy and comfort to such an extent.

Spacious: with a living area of approximately 500 m², this property certainly merits this description too. Moreover, this does not include the loft, the basement, the barn with wellness, the carport and the conservatory! The 2,690 m² plot can also be described as spacious for its location.

Perfect: this is true for its location (situated along the river “Zijl”, with complete privacy and at a short distance to Leiden, Schiphol airport and the A4 motorway), but also the condition of the entire property, both interior and exterior.

In the late 1800’s, a farmhouse was situated on this location. This was later demolished in 1980 and rebuilt identically to the original, re-using old materials from various historical buildings; such as the oak ceiling beams, uprights, and various other original elements. This means that this farmhouse combines character and space of 'old', with the comfort and quality of 'new'. The foundation of the house is completely piled and satisfies the latest standards of insulation.

Between 2010 and 2015 the house was once again extensively renovated; including the building of a stylish conservatory and veranda, a new kitchen (with underfloor heating), the complete renovation of the annex which now contains a spacious wellness area with i.a. a hot tub, a sauna and a gym, as well as a large storage shed with loft. Along the entire SW facing roof of the annex, the old rooftiles have been replaced with ‘solar tiles’ which contribute to the surprisingly modest electricity bills for such a large property.

The house is located alongside the river “Zijl”, linking the city of Leiden to the Kaag lakes (“Kagerplassen”). Along the “Zijl”, there are a number of marinas where it is possible to rent mooring space; the current owners have a mooring space for a small motorboat (“sloep”), which could be taken over. At the end of the Zijldijk you can find the recently fully renovated “Kaag Sociëteit” restaurant. Here, during the summer season, you can wine and dine in style on the lakeside.

Special features:
- attractive driveway with entrance gate, carport for several cars under a thatched roof and a new ‘English’ greenhouse.
- attractively landscaped garden on three sides. To the rear there is a large traditional barn which is not part of the property. This barn belongs to the neighbouring house, however this does not detract from the privacy of the property.
- the SW side of the house overlooks neighbouring meadows and the river “Zijl”. From this side of the house you can enjoy the sunset until late in the evening.
- the house includes 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a spacious office, a utility/laundry room, a wine cellar/basement, a large shed with loft floor, a fitness/wellness area with sauna, shower and toilet, and extensive storage space.

Naturally, for the complete picture a viewing is essential.

Warmond is a beautiful and authentic village with lots to offer. The village is situated along the Kager Lakes, which is an ideal area for water sports, walking and cycling. Warmond is located on an old beach ridge, which runs parallel to the Leede, a body of water that connects the Kager Lakes to the Oude Rijn via canals.

The name Warmond first appears in a 9th-century list of goods from the Church of Utrecht. This document states that the Sint-Maarten church in Utrecht possessed three mansi (farms) in Warmelda. It should be said, however, that the actual human habitation of the beach ridge of Warmond goes back a lot further than this written document suggests. Because of its height, the beach ridge of Warmond was particularly suitable to protect the area from flooding.

Apart from its beautiful location and the water of the Kaag, Watermond has plenty more to offer. Art is one of the attractions of the village. Warmond was once home to the painter Jan Steen, and currently the Dutch novelist Maarten ‘t Hart lives here, as well as artists Eppo van Bolhuis and Nicoline Heemskerk. Apart from all these things, the village is easily accessible. Within 20 minutes you can find yourself either at Schiphol, in Leiden, cycling through the Bollenstreek (Flower Bulb Area), or walking on the beach.
