‘A country house with the allure of an American villa’. This is how the house was described in the TV programme BinnensteBuiten. The current owners designed and built this home with love. The result is a beautiful and unique mix of style, atmosphere and elegance. Step inside and experience a perfect balance between authenticity and modern comfort. At only fifteen minutes from the centre of Bergen op Zoom and half an hour's drive from bustling Antwerp.
Living with sturdy, natural materials and handsome details
An impressive driveway takes us past an idyllic pond with a jetty to the front of this country house. The thatched white turret and the special oak cladding with afromosia window frames – a type of African teak that weathers to grey when exposed to the elements – are absolute eye-catchers. Your first glance of the hall will show you that the authentic exterior has been continued inside. The home is full of sturdy natural materials and wonderful details. From the Belgian hard stone tiled floor to the lime-washed walls. And from the oak beams to the Ijssel bricks by the fire. These are bricks that have been salvaged from an old castle. The cosy living room is situated in the house's round turret and offers a wonderful view of the garden. Open the sliding doors and enjoy being outdoors. Features of the living room include the high ceiling, the oak mezzanine ceiling and the wood-burning fireplace.
Huge kitchen at the heart of the home
The somewhat hidden dining area is a great place to eat. Step through the authentic Chinese doors and enter the kitchen. A space that the current owners describe as the heart of the home. The kitchen has built-in oak cabinetry and a large island containing even more storage space. The cabinets house a large double fridge and the double freezers. A detail that particularly stands out is the old cow trough, now used as a sink. A large 6-burner Boretti gas range stands in a wall of cooking appliances. There are other cooking appliances here too. Including a built-in deep fryer and oven. The home automation system is operated from the kitchen too. This system controls the whole house, from the cameras and lighting to the temperature in every room.
Utility room and garage with pantry for plenty of extra storage
The hall adjacent to the kitchen gives access to a toilet, the meter cabinet, the double garage and the utility room. The utility room is fitted with cabinets and plumbing for the washing machine and dryer and the water softener. It also contains a sink and a countertop. The garage has two electric sliding doors to the drive, built-in cupboards and a pantry.
First floor with two bedrooms and entrance to the turret room
Back in the hall, take the staircase to the first floor and turn left towards the mezzanine. You'll find yourself in the turret room: a unique, spacious bedroom beneath the structure of the roof. Look upwards and admire the construction. This was cut and built by hand by the current owners. Unique! Look behind you at the mezzanine and – providing you are not scared of heights – downwards at the living room. And through the windows on the far side with a view out on to the eye-catching garden. A little further on, you'll walk past a workspace on your way to the second landing. A separate toilet, a bathroom and two bedrooms have been created here. The master bedroom is a Master Bedroom worthy of a capital ‘M’. The bedroom is very spacious, light, comfortable and attractive. Features of this room are the height of the roof, the sloping walls and the built-in oak wardrobes. Install yourself on the window seat by the large dormer window and enjoy the view from the front of the house. The deluxe bathroom has a two-person bathtub, a walk-in shower (with both a rain shower and a hand-held shower) and a vanity unit with two basins. What's particularly striking here is the special waterproof plasterwork, known as tadelakt, which means to ‘massage’ or ‘burnish’ in Berber.
Pool house with ‘wellness centre’ and wine cellar
Walk along the passage that links the living quarters to the pool house. This is the place to escape everyday pressures. The fireplace invites you to relax by a crackling fire. And open the sliding doors and take a dip in the pool. On the floor below, you'll find the cellar, ‘our wellness centre’, as the current residents call it. After an invigorating workout, you will truly enjoy the sauna. Followed by a treat from the air-conditioned wine cellar where the wine is stored by vintage. You can cool off from the sauna in the separate shower room with a basin and bucket shower. A nice thing about this space is that it has its own courtyard. This provides it with lots of daylight while also maintaining privacy. On the first floor there's another spacious bedroom where guests can sleep over in style and comfort. Thanks to two large windows, this room is nice and light, and the sturdy beams provide the room with extra charm.
Beautiful 7,000 m² garden with a number of barns
Walk into the large garden from the cellar. It is almost 7,000 square metres in surface area. A garden with various terraces, a lawn, a natural pond, established trees and plants and all sorts of possibilities for relaxing. In the heated swimming pool (11 metres long and 1.5 metres deep) with an outdoor shower, for example. Or on the bowling green in the shade of the plane trees. There are various barns at the back of the garden. Two are interconnected. These barns provide many possibilities for development. They could be turned into staff accommodation, for example. We are happy to show you the possibilities. There is a further spacious barn about 5 metres high with a three-metre-high rolling door. Plenty of space to park a camping car or have a workshop.

NEN2580 Measurement Guidelines
The Measurement Guidelines are based on the NEN2580. The Measurement Guidelines are intended to provide a more uniform method of taking measurements in order to give an indication of the usable area. The Measurement Guidelines do not fully rule out any discrepancies in measurement results, due to differences in interpretation, or rounding off, or limitations in the carrying out of measurements, for instance. The basic premise is always "what you see is what you buy" and the object information has a lower priority.
The purchase agreement is only legally valid after it has been signed
A verbal agreement between the private seller and private buyer is not legally binding. This means that there is only a legally valid purchase once the private seller and private buyer have signed the purchase agreement. This stems from Article 7:2 of the Dutch Civil Code. A confirmation of the verbal agreement by email or a forwarded draft of the purchase agreement is also not considered a legally valid agreement.
Security deposit or bank guarantee

Included as standard in this deed of sale is a security deposit or a bank guarantee amounting to 10% of the purchase price.
