On a beautiful lane with predominantly pre-war properties, a short distance from the International School and the NS train station is this fabulous family villa. This characteristic semi-detached property from the early 20th century features large living spaces - including a spacious kitchen/ lounge - and a sunny garden with a veranda.
A range of elementary and secondary schools, Hilversum's bustling city center, the NS train station and main access roads are all nearby. Literally around the corner you will find a soccer court and a playground. Utrecht is less that 15 minutes away, Amsterdam/ Schiphol Airport can be reached within ca. 25 minutes. The property features numerous authentic details (incl. ceiling cornices and roses, panel doors, stained glass windows) and is the perfect home for a (large) family.
Ground floor: entrance, spacious hall with an impressive staircase, restroom with a washbasin. Separate study/den/family room with French doors to the patio at the front.
An extremely expansive living room, with a sunroom with large windows at the front, and French doors at the rear. The room features two natural stone mantels: the original mantel in the back room features a cozy wood burner and a fireplace can be installed in the front room. The study/den features beautiful whitewash oak herringbone flooring with double trim.
The kitchen/ lounge is the heart of this home. The perfect place to enjoy time with family and friends. This room even features a cozy gas fireplace, and has gorgeous granite flooring, in keeping with the style of the house. The kitchen is fitted with 5 large Solitaire gas burners, an Itho range hood and a range of Miele fitted appliances (the combination oven and dishwasher are from 2017/2018). The cabinets offer ample storage space and the countertops are made of natural stone. French doors open to the garden. The kitchen accesses the large basement, with additional storage space and the central heating unit (Atag, installed in 2018). The kitchen also leads to the spacious pantry/ utility room, which is fitted with a kitchen unit, large refrigerator/ freezer, combination microwave, floor-to ceiling cabinets and the fittings for the laundry machine and dryer. This room also has a side entrance. Above the kitchen and pantry is an additional, super convenient storage area, which can be accessed from the roofed area to the side of the house.
The staircase, with a double landing and a large stained glass window, is beautifully carpeted and leads to the first floor. The large master bedroom is at the rear and features a fitted wardrobe wall and French doors to the flat roof. Also at the rear is a second good-sized bedroom with a fitted wardrobe. At the front is another spacious bedroom with a fitted double wardrobe and French doors to the balcony. Passageway with a fitted cabinet in the alcove, separate restroom and an English country style bathroom with an elegant claw foot bath, sink, separate shower and a unique design radiator. The bathroom and the toilet both feature "witjes" - antique Dutch tiling. The landing and the bedrooms feature solid oak floors and all rooms feature gorgeous panel doors with stained glass.
A staircase leads to the second floor. The landing features a large cabinet wall and a hatch to the storage attic. This level accommodates a second bathroom with a shower, sink and towel radiator, in addition to a charming fourth and fifth bedroom. The rear bedroom is fitted with yet another large wardrobe.
The villa is on a large 470 m2 plot. The front garden features a patio bordering the study/den. The driveway can accommodate three cars and has a charge point for an electric car. A fence door leads to the side entrance of the home, and the covered area for bicycles and mopeds. The nearly 10-meter long and 14-meter wide garden is tastefully landscaped and features a gorgeous veranda - with lighting and heating - that was built in 2017. An ideal place to enjoy the outdoors, regardless of the weather!
