Wonderful detached family home for those who love space and horses.
This spacious villa, originally built in 1817, stands on a beautiful large plot of land, 5280 m2 in size, containing a jeu de boules court, stables with three stalls, a paddock, and pasture. The residence is situated on the edge of the Duivenvoorde corridor, close to Schakenbosch, the Vliet, and all the amenities of Leidschendam and Voorschoten. The neighbouring polder area is beautiful. A unique spot for a family of space, nature, and horse enthusiasts!
In the immediate surroundings there are various primary and secondary schools, including the International School in Mariahoeve, and the British School in Voorschoten. There is a large array of sports associations in the area. The historic town centre of Leidschendam is just a 10-minute bicycle ride away. Here you will find various shops, lovely restaurants and cafes. Further, the Leidsenhage shopping centre (the future ‘Mall of the Netherlands’) and Prinsenhof shopping centre are both within cycling distance. In the nearby recreational areas, you can go for walks, bicycle, and enjoy the nature. Scheveningen, Wassenaarseslag, and Meyendel are easily reachable by bicycle and accessible to horse trailers.
Via the N14 you can quickly reach the A4, A12, or the A44 motorway. Thanks to the location and the nearby access roads you can be in the centre of Den Haag or Voorschoten within 15 minutes. Schiphol is also within easy reach, both by car and with public transp
You reach the residence via the long drive. You come through the covered entrance way into the spacious entrance hall with its beautifully restored, original granite floor. From the hall you access the living room, the kitchen, the guest toilet, and the stairway to the 1ast floor.
The sunny living room is noticeably spacious and has a nice width. Thanks to the conservatory with doors to the garden and the large windows it is deliciously light here.
The large kitchen is equipped with a kitchen unit with granite worksurfaces and a lot of storage space. The kitchen contains various high-quality built-in appliances (including a 4-burner induction hob with hood, a refrigerator, an oven, and a dishwasher). There is a lot of room for provisions in the cellar. From the kitchen you enter the dining room.
The dining room opens off the kitchen and is a fantastic place to linger over a meal. Doors here open onto a very pleasant terrace in the garden.
The modern toilet was recently renovated. It contains a hanging toilet and a washbasin.
You take the stairs to the landing on the 1st floor. On this storey there are three bedrooms and a bathroom.
All the bedrooms are especially spacious and light.
The large, recently renovated bathroom has a walk-in shower, a bathtub, oak bathroom cabinets with a natural stone washstand, a designer radiator, and a hanging toilet. The heated floors and the natural light are most pleasant.
The stairs take you to the spacious landing on the 2nd floor. From the landing you have access to two bedrooms.
The 2 large L-shaped bedrooms each have two dormers and a washstand. These rooms are particularly attractive. One of the bedrooms has a large cupboard containing the boiler. From the other you have a beautiful view over the paddock.
The garden encircles the house. At the front, the garden reaches the waterway. Stylish espaliers create a natural shield from the side of the road. At the side there is a large sunny, south-west facing terrace just outside of the dining room and living room. A robot mower simplifies the maintenance of the beautifully landscaped garden.
In the back garden there is boules court. Behind the residence there are also three horse stalls (each 3x3m) with storage space, the paddock and enough pasture land for the horses to roam. The hardened driveway makes it easy to drive with your horse trailer onto the property. This driveway is accessed via Lijtweg.
The double garage extension is completely tiled and fitted with the washer and dryer connections. There is also a lot of storage space here.
