Luxury experience in the unique décor of the river IJssel
From the moment you enter the driveway, you realise: this place is going to be a surprise. On 5.6 acres of land, the thatched country house, built in 2005 under architectural design, stands at an elevated position. It is the radiant focal point within this very unique river landscape. A place with extraordinary views, stunning scenery, and peace and tranquillity. And all this at just a few minutes' drive from Zutphen. The landscaped garden matches perfectly with the typical meadows of the washlands. The grounds offer direct access to the IJssel, and feature its own jetty and boat ramp.
The grand hall of the country house leads on to the open-plan kitchen and the spacious sitting and dining room with French doors to the enclosed and south-facing terrace. From the round bay window in the kitchen-diner, you have wonderful views over the river. From the kitchen, you can access the elevator or step onto the large terrace overlooking the IJssel. In addition to the stunning river views, you can also enjoy the large water feature, which blends in with the landscaped garden, and the arbour standing on a wooden platform. There are also gorgeous views over your own part of the washlands where you can even have some livestock, as this location is perfect for having, for example, sheep and/or horses.
On the ground floor you will find the master bedroom with a stylish en-suite bathroom and the adjacent private, enclosed terrace with luxury whirlpool. The first floor has an extension on the side of the IJssel with an open-plan office and balcony. Your eyes will be drawn to the panoramic views over the tranquil surroundings of the IJssel. This floor has three further spacious bedrooms with enclosed balcony and there is a second bathroom with steam shower. Another surprise is the basement underneath the full width of the house. Here, there are a large, double garage with workshop and a full-fledged pub with kitchen and toilet. The house and its surroundings are a feast for all senses!
The village Empe is part of the municipality of Brummen, but the property on offer here is only minutes away from all the amenities in Zutphen. Water sports enthusiasts who love canoeing, rowing and/or sailing can indulge their passion and maybe join one of the nearby water sports associations. The distance to the A1, A50, and A12 motorways is no more than 20 minutes by car, and the railway station Voorst-Empe is only 2.6 km away.
