On a truly unique location with direct access to the Kagerplassen, is the listed country house â€œGroot Leerustâ€� with a beautiful, architecturally-designed boxwood front garden, romantic backyard, swimming pool and boat jetty on a 1955 m2 plot.
The country estate â€œGroot Leerustâ€� dates from the 18th century and is situated on the river Leede and is in a prominent location in the centre of Warmond, near Leiden. With a living area of 439 m2 with 9 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and surrounded by all the greenery, the garden and Park Groot Leerust, it is a true pleasure to stay here.
The monumental country house was built in two phases. In 1717, the Englishman Benjamin Breadly had the present back house built on the remains of a 17th-century farmhouse, to which the front house was added in 1844. This has given the house its current appearance.
Country estate â€œGroot Leerustâ€� is surrounded by a beautiful garden, landscaped under the architecture of Eugénie Andre de la Porte in a French formal style. Today, part of this garden is freely accessible as Park Groot Leerust. In 1953, this part of the garden was split off and opened to visitors as a public park and has been owned by the municipality ever since. On the water side of the park, there is a charming tearoom from 1815.
The townhouse serves as a private residence. It is a national monument and is in very good condition.
The monumental townhouse is located between the Burgemeester Ketelaarstraat and the river De Leede. This makes the location of the estate unique: it borders the beautiful, water-rich nature reserve â€œde Kagerplassenâ€� and the view over the windmill of the Zwanburgerpolder and the Leede is magnificent . On beautiful days, you can see one boat after the other sailing on the Kagerplassen . In the landscape style park, you will also find centuries-old trees and numerous birds.
