NATURE, LUXURY, TRANQUILLITY, AND SPACE RIGHT IN THE RANDSTAD
This spacious, energy-efficient 7-room villa (approx. 216 m2) was architect-designed in the characteristic contemporary Frank Lloyd Wright style. The wonderful family home stands on one of the largest plots of land (625m2) in an exclusive residential area at the edge of the green and expansive Florapark. The residence borders, and looks out over, the beautifully landscaped Balijbos. It is wonderfully quiet here partly because it is at the end of a cul-de-sac. A unique location where you can truly enjoy nature yet with all the convenience of a city to hand.
Within walking and riding distance are some of the best shopping malls in the region with a complete array of shops (from supermarkets to delicatessens).
Further, Zoetermeer has a diverse selection of leisure facilities such as a golf course and an indoor ski slope. In a nearby area there are various other sports facilities and schools. An international school is less than 8 km away. The Hague, Rotterdam, and Utrecht are all easily accessible by car and by public transport. In just 15 minutes you’re in the centre of The Hague. RandstadRail gets you quickly to almost all of the surrounding towns and cities.
SUCH COMFORT INSIDE AND OUT.
You reach the residence floor via a stylish raised entrance. You enter into the spacious hall with its closet space and a guest toilet with washstand. The designer radiators and the oak floors (covering almost the entire residence) are really eye-catching. There are wooden stairways to the 1st floor and to the basement. From the hall you access the dining room, situated between the kitchen and the lower-lying living room with its conservatory.
The dining room has a fantastic view over the Balijbos, through the characteristic Frank Lloyd Wright style large windows. In here, as in the living room, there is an oakwood floor. Here you truly enjoy the views over the beautifully landscaped park with its water features, and the clear skies overhead. The dining room flows into the living room.
The kitchen is fitted with heated ceramic tile flooring. Here too you have a spectacular view. There is enough space for a dining table. The SieMatic kitchen has a large and very beautiful granite worktop (Nero Impala) and a lot of storage space. The kitchen is also equipped with all modern appliances (Atag and Siemens), such as a gas hob with a wok burner, a designer hood, a self-cleaning fan oven, a combi oven/microwave, a dishwasher, a close-in boiler, a refrigerator, and a separate freezer. The kitchen lacks nothing even for the most discriminating cook.
French doors with screens open out on to the terrace. An electrically controlled awning protects you from strong sunlight, should you so desire. You can enjoy the terrace at any time of the day. Even on a fine evening it’s wonderful to linger out here. This terrace has steps to the garden with its covered BBQ place.
The lower-lying living room has fantastic high ceilings (4 m), and in the adjacent conservatory a spectacular floor-to-ceiling window. This gives a loftlike and particularly spacious feeling. Also, this indoor area flows seamlessly into the outdoors, and it is spectacularly sunny. In here you can truly enjoy the sunsets. There is a spacious seating area with a sleek gas fireplace. This fits in well with all interior design styles. From the conservatory you have access to the beautifully landscaped garden.
