FIVE FEATURES OF THIS SPACIOUS BUNGALOW

This exclusively finished and detached bungalow has two wings with garden around. The living and sleeping area have the garage and bicycle storage in the corner. Unobtrusive and therefore surprising is the large basement with an entertainment and chill room and several storage rooms.
The entrance is completely covered, with built-in spotlights. Left of the double front door is a charming pond with playful stepping stones. The spacious hall is tiled with slate-like, sealed and therefore maintenance friendly baked tiles. On the left are the two sitting rooms, dining room and covered terrace. To the right the hall leads to the kitchen, where the original patio garden provides plenty of daylight. Around the corner from the stairs down is the heated cloakroom with behind it the spacious toilet and access to work-/bedroom 1.
The hardwood floor in the living room was completely re-sanded and varnished in the summer of 2018. In the front is the gas fireplace, with opposite a double sliding door across the full width of the room, to the covered terrace. Next to the gas fireplace are two windows from floor to ceiling, overlooking the front garden, pond and street. The side wall has a (book) closet that is custom made. The ceiling has spotlights and a decorative edge. All window coverings are behind coves.
In the corner a wooden folding door and a staircase with two descending steps lead to the second living room with gas fireplace, which is now used as a reading, lounge and TV room. This cozy room offers all the privacy and yet overlooks the backyard through the floor-to-ceiling window. At the front is a tilt and turn door to the front garden. As in the large living room panel radiators and gas fire ensure a comfortable indoor climate.
Next to the living room is the separate dining room, also with sliding doors to terrace and garden. This spacious room offers more than enough space for a large dining table, crockery and sideboards and has an entrance door directly to the kitchen.
KITCHEN WITH PATIO
The spacious kitchen enjoys plenty of daylight, thanks to the large window above the natural stone sink and especially the patio garden. The U-installation of the kitchen with Siemens microwave, oven, dishwasher and refrigerator (2018) keeps the room open. On the side wall is the cooking area with five gas burners and stainless steel cooker hood. In front of the window is the sink with, next to the regular tap, a Quooker. On the continuous island with cupboard space on both sides, the black natural stone counter top has been extended. Next to it is the spacious dining and sitting area which can easily accommodate a six to eight person dining area.
This original, compact and fully glazed courtyard has its own awning and entrance door. The patio separates the kitchen from the lobby.
The door to the dining area in the kitchen leads to the spacious utility room where connections for washer and dryer are under the worktop. The skylight in the roof, as well as the door with milk glass to the terrace, provide plenty of daylight.
This space between cloakroom and garage overlooks the front garden through a large window with tilt and turn door. The side wall is now equipped with a custom cupboard, with several custom workplaces, where the children did their homework. It is the ideal place for a home office. Because of the proximity of toilet and bathroom 1, this room is also particularly suitable as an extra bedroom or guest room.
This part of the bungalow has its own closed hallway, which is accessible from the kitchen and the foyer. Thanks to two large, round roof domes, there is a lot of daylight. Both hallway and bedrooms are equipped with parquet flooring with a solid wood top layer. In the middle of the hallway is a cupboard in the wall.
MASTER SUITE / BEDROOM 2
The corridor in the sleeping wing ends in the bedroom with dressing room of almost 47 square meters in total. The spacious dressing room has cupboard walls and two high windows on the side garden. The bedroom has a high window in the back and a large window with tilt and turn door to the backyard, overlooking the outdoor pool. This suite also has a private, large bathroom.
This spacious and luxurious bathroom has two sinks with vanity unit, a towel radiator and a bath in the middle, under the daylight dome in the roof. The dividing wall behind the bath hides the toilet on one side and creates a walk-in shower on the other side.
This slightly narrower bedroom has a tilt and turn door next to the large windows on the side garden. Through the ceiling-high window there is a beautiful view of the mature side garden.
BEDROOMS 4 AND 5
These two bedrooms are identical and mirrored to each other. In between is the second bathroom. This created niches in the corners by the windows on the side garden in both rooms. Next to the windows are tilt and turn doors to the path around the back in the side garden. Both rooms have a beautiful view of the mature side garden through the ceiling-high windows.
The luxurious bathroom for the children has a double sink and a shower with glass wall. Practical: the separate toilet with toilet and sink is situated in the corridor to the kitchen, opposite the patio garden.
The entire right wing of the bungalow, i.e. under the bedrooms, is a spacious basement. The various rooms offer numerous options and possibilities. There are two shutters to reach the crawl spaces under the ground floor. These are, because of the marshy ground in the nature reserve, equipped with moisture-resistant plastic, gravel cover and pumps. The stairs down and the circulation area in the basement are made of light natural stone. Under the stairs is a spacious niche.
HOBBY, FITNESS, WORK OR ENTERTAINMENT ROOM
The eye-catcher of the basement is directly accessible from the spacious, bright traffic area with natural stone stairs: the open space of over fifty square meters, with daylight coming in thanks to the windows on the lowered part of the garden.
This space is multifunctional and equipped with heating, drainage and water connections. The construction of a pantry and/or bathroom is one of the possibilities, for example as a living space for an au pair or family member.
The room is currently equipped for entertainment and chilling with a real bar, table football, beamer and a large screen for films and sporting events. This very spacious room with a wooden ceiling can also serve as an office, workshop, hobby or fitness room.
This large storage space is directly accessible from the hall and makes up for the lack of a storage attic. Thanks to the shelves all around, there are plenty of storage possibilities.
From the hall a door gives access to the hallway with four additional storage rooms.
STORAGE 2 / WINE CELLAR
Thanks to its underground location and the lack of daylight, this storage area is particularly suitable for the storage of wine and provisions.
STORAGE 3 / WORKSHOP
This space is currently in use as a workshop for computer building hobby.
STORAGE 4 / BOILER ROOM
This room also serves as a technical room. Here the boiler is installed.
STORAGE 5 / GARDEN SHED
In the basement, past the outside door with roller shutter and accessible via the tiled staircase from the backyard, is the outdoor storage room with window. In this large storage room are the Starline pump and filter system for the outdoor pool. Thanks to the cleaning ionizer, the pool water needs much less chlorine.
From this space is also the niche under the outside staircase accessible. The stairs in the garden are closed with an authentic fence.
DRIVEWAY, DOUBLE GARAGE, STORAGES
The space in front of the double garage is partially shielded by a hedge and offers on-site parking for three to four cars. Next to the garage is the steel and evergreen vegetated fence with a closed, lockable gate to the bicycle shed and the side and backyard.
In the garage there is room for two cars, with space for some cabinets. The ceiling and the electric, remote controlled door were replaced a few years ago. The walls are also insulated and the floor has a practical drain.
BICYCLE STORAGE WITH METER CUPBOARD
Through the driveway and the lockable steel gate in the ditto, with evergreen hedera overgrown fence next to the garage the back garden is accessible. Right next to the lowered part of the garden, so daylight falls into the entertainment room, is the door to the bike shed with heating and wardrobe. There is also the meter cupboard with all connections practically accessible.
In the side garden is a wooden shed for the lawnmower, so it does not have to go down the stairs to the storage room downstairs.
GARDEN WITH SWIMMING POOL AND TWO
The spacious and professionally designed and furnished front garden has as an eye-catcher, next to the entrance, a beautiful pond with concrete stepping stones.
The spacious back garden with lawn and various plant beds is deep enough to always sit in the sun and is sheltered on all sides by overgrown fencing with black cloth, mature deciduous and coniferous trees and many evergreen conifers and other plants. This ensures 100% privacy throughout the year. Thanks to the fence, it is a safe play area for young (grand)children and pets.
The entire side garden is equipped with a walkway and dark gray slit that collects splashing rainwater. The plants are diverse and mature, and include half-height beech hedges, boxwood, bicoloured, non-rampant bamboo, annabels and rhododendrons. A back gate in the fence is possible, for direct access to the nature reserve behind.
Outside the dining room is a paved, open terrace with enough space for a large outdoor dining area. From the covered terrace to the master suite is a large overhang. Behind the master suite is a lawn with surrounding beech hedge. This part of the garden is suitable for the trampoline or as a football or playground. Also an outdoor sauna and / or jacuzzi with optimal privacy are among the possibilities.
Between sitting room 2 and the dining room is the large, elevated terrace - which can rightly be called an outdoor room - which is accessible through the large sliding doors in the living room. In the side wall, parallel to the gas fire in lounge 2, there is a wood burning outdoor fireplace. The terrace is equipped with heating lamps and built-in ceiling spots and offers plenty of space for a large lounge area and an outdoor dining table.
The Starline outdoor pool of approximately 9.00 by 4.50 m and approximately 1.50 m deep with built-in stairs is equipped with a self-heating and insulating solar deck; the pool heating is therefore rarely on. All around is a spacious terrace for sun loungers.
