From top to bottom restored family home, adjacent to pastures and woods.
In the heart of the woods, next to Beukenrode estate, on a leafy cul-de-sac stands one of Doorn’s most beautiful, detached, original houses (approx. 330m2). The location is ideal for lovers of peace and nature. You step out of the house and into the expansive walking woodlands. Life is pleasurable and safe in the small residential area between Doorn and Driebergen. You have the best of everything here: schools, shops, public transport and access roads are supremely within reach, while on the opposite side horses gambol on the pasture.
The woodland garden at the front of the villa matches the surroundings. The long driveway next to the house offers parking space for several cars. The house’s grandeur, symmetry and the beautiful masonry are unmissable.
As you come in through the entrance at the front, you find yourself in an impressive, long hall. The high ceilings, the beautiful arc halfway up, the smooth plastered walls with high skirting boards, and the granite floor are striking.
From the hall you access the living room, the TV room, the family kitchen, and (via the stairway) the basement and the first floor. At the end of the hall you go through the back door out onto the veranda.
You’ll immediately feel at home in the room that was formerly two connected reception rooms (kamer-en-suite) (approx. 48m2). It has ceilings over 3 meters high and large windows. These make it particularly spacious and light. The small bay window and the wood-burning stove give this living room extra atmosphere. On either side of the stove are fitted cupboards. The traditionally laid oak fishbone parquet floor is beautiful.
The family kitchen (approx. 22m2) is the heart of the home. You can spend hours at the table here enjoying the company of family and friends. The handmade kitchen has basalt stone work surfaces, a SMEG gas cooker with 6 burners and 3 ovens and various built-in appliances.
The kitchen gives onto the scullery with washing machine and dryer connections, an extra fridge-freezer and the same bespoke cupboards as in the kitchen.
The room at the front of the house (approx. 20m2) is supremely suitable as TV room, playroom, or workroom.
You go up the renovated oak stairway to the landing on the first floor. Here too you get that wow experience: French doors open onto a large terrace, here again you have enormously high ceilings, beautifully plastered walls with high skirting boards, and over the entire first floor is the sturdy fishbone parquet floor. This level can also be accessed via an outside stairway. This makes the house superbly suitable for a home office.
From the landing you access 3/4 (bed)rooms, a bathroom and the stairway to the second floor. The small pantry on the landing makes life easy.
The masterbedroom is a formerly kamer-en-suite. It is a spacious, sunny room (approx. 52m2) with wood-burning stove and French doors to the terrace. From here you have a magnificent view over the beautiful surroundings.
The bedroom at the front is also of a nice size (approx. 15m2)
The bedroom at the back (approx. 12m2) has French doors to the terrace and fitted cupboards.
This floor has a bathroom with washstand, a shower and a hanging toilet. All bathrooms and toilets were renovated in 2008 and are luxuriously finished with floor tiles and basalt and oak washstands, stone mosaic tiles on the walls and high quality fittings.
You go up the stairway to the 2nd floor. The landing with the open loft is particularly atmospheric. Here too all of the built-in cupboards are bespoke. Through the windows you get the beautiful view over the environs behind the house. On this level there are 4 bedrooms, a bathroom, and a lot of storage space.
The 4th bedroom has a large walk-in closet. The 3 high skylights and the roof ridge with its visible rafters are noteworthy. The view of the woods is wonderful to wake up to. It is a delightful room!
The 3 cosy children’s rooms have bespoke beds and built-in cupboards.
The bathroom has a bathtub, a shower, a large washstand and a hanging toilet. Next to the bathroom is the technical area with a central heating boiler and a gas water heater.
From the hall you go down the stairs to the spacious basement. Here is the 2nd central heating boiler and sufficient storage space.
The gardens were largely landscaped anew in 2015 with paths, driveways and gravel terraces, trimmed with cor-ten steel bands, chestnut wood fences, new garden lighting and beautiful plants.
Onto the back side of the house is a stylishly built (2002) veranda. This is picture perfect! You can enjoy the outdoors here for most of the year.
At the back of the house is a detached garage. In front of the garage is a 2nd driveway.
