Lavish villa ‘De Beuken’ at a special location in the municipality Bloemendaal. Surrounded by a vast woodland of 16,000 m² with swimming pool and private tennis court.
The traditional villa with 566 m² living area was architecturally constructed in 1928 and is located on the elevated part of the former estate ‘Duinvliet’. The original character of this patrician house has been preserved completely, despite several internal improvements and adjustments to the modern age. For example, the height of the residential areas on the ground floor are 3.60 metres. Many style elements and characteristic features, such as a scullery and serving kitchen, plastered ceilings with ornamental mouldings and panel doors are also still present. The current residents have managed to give the whole a lot of allure with taste and dedication. The living experience of this lovely family home therefore feels like a ‘warm blanket’.
The woodland plot of 11,486 m² was designed in accordance with the European ‘Natura 2000’ directives and partially landscaped in a park-like way, while the house is located on the plot of 4,910 m², surrounded by multiple lawns featuring plant and flower-lined alleys, terraces, a pond with fountain and waterfall, a heated and illuminated swimming pool of 14x9 m, an illuminated hard core tennis court, a detached double garage with office space and studio space above it, several carports, storages and ample parking space. The whole is surrounded by hedgerows and fences with lockable entrance gates.
The location is adjacent to National Park Zuid Kennerland, to which the estates Elswout, Koningshof and Duinlust in the direct vicinity are also included. Access to the Kennemer Duinen is at walking distance, while the beaches of Zandvoort and Bloemendaal, as well as the Kennemer Golf and Country Club, are 15 minutes by bicycle. For daily groceries, specialty stores and restaurants you only need to go ‘right around the corner’, so to speak. The area is located adjacent to the municipality border of Haarlem, which means that at a bit longer distance you can enjoy all the amenities of the 775 years old city centre with its historic character. Theatres, cinemas, museums, a wide range of restaurants, cafes and shops of all types are at your disposal there.
All types of sports can be practised in the direct vicinity. Bloemendaal has a rich club life, while the schools (international, primary and secondary education and various levels of vocational schools) are very varied and of high quality.
The villa is located directly nearby arterial roads for car traffic to Amsterdam, Schiphol Airport, The Hague/Rotterdam and Alkmaar. The entire direct vicinity features open cycling paths.

There is a direct and frequent connection to Schiphol Airport using the so-called Zuidtangent.
