Luxuriously finished and detached property in Haarlem, dating back to 1894 and with the dual allocated purpose for living and business use.
This unique and authentic villa sits on the edge of the oldest urban forest in the Netherlands, the Haarlemmerhout, and exudes the atmosphere of bygone days. Apart from the living quarters downstairs, the villa offers 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a sauna, and a wine cellar.
The property was built even before the development of the Zuiderhout and Oosterhout residential areas and is one of the oldest villas in the area. The villa shows the typical Neo-Renaissance architectural style that was popular at the time, and the façades have always been perfectly maintained. The historic roof tiles (so-called ‘kruispannen’) were replaced in 2005 and laid in the same mosaic pattern. The filigree in the façades has also been restored. Other splendid period features such as the distinctly horizontal layers in the brickwork, ornamental trusses, high plastered ceilings, panelled doors, marble floors and marbled wall cladding, and the unique and original granite tiled flooring have all been retained.
The location will be hard to beat! The villa sits in one of the most beautiful spots where Haarlem borders Heemstede. The “Jan van Goyen” shopping street, the historic city centre of Haarlem with its wonderful shops and boutiques, and a huge range of restaurants, cafés and bars are all within walking distance. A walk to the city centre brings you through the oldest urban park of Haarlem, which includes a deer park and a tearoom. The area includes several good primary and secondary schools and sports clubs, such as the Koninklijke HFC (football), the Haarlem rowing and sailing association, and multiple tennis clubs. The A9 motorway is only a 6-minute drive and offers easy access to Amsterdam, Leiden, The Hague, and Schiphol Airport. The beach of Zandvoort is a gorgeous 7-km cycle trip.
Spacious and covered entrance. Vestibule doors lead to the generously sized hall with unique and original Italian terrazzo floor tiles. The hall includes the downstairs toilet and gives access to a basement pantry with good head height, the central heating unit, a submersible pump, and a climate-controlled wine cellar. The main living area comprises three separate rooms: the living room, a sitting room, and a music room/conservatory. All rooms beautifully radiate the authentic atmosphere. The living room, which includes a fireplace, still features the original and perfectly conditioned oak parquet flooring from 1894. The living room and the conservatory have double doors leading to the landscaped garden, from where you can enjoy the views of the Haarlemmerhout park. The separate TV room/study is finished with oak parquet flooring (2018) and has a separate entrance on the east side of the garden, making this a practical office space. The large kitchen-diner includes various built-in appliances like an induction hob (2017), a dishwasher, and a steam oven (2017).
The kitchen then leads to the utility room with the white goods connections, the vegetable garden, the large stone-built shed and the double garage. The shed and garage are accessed from a drive on the east side of the plot. The 16 solar panels on the garage roof provide an annual electricity yield of 2800 KW).
The beautiful curving and landed staircase with ornamental balusters leads to the landing on the first floor with a separate toilet. The master bedroom is on the west side of the house and includes fitted wardrobes and a luxury en-suite bathroom with a bath/whirlpool, double washbasin, a walk-in shower, and underfloor heating. The second bedroom includes two built-in closets and two sets of double doors – one pair giving access to the flat roof above the music room/conservatory and the other to the balcony at the front, which includes original elements. The third bedroom on this floor is also on this side of the house and features two built-in closets and double doors to the east-facing flat roof.
The landing on the second floor offers built-in closets. The three bedrooms on the top floor all show the beautiful beam constructions. The second bathroom features a walk-in shower, a washbasin, a toilet, and a bespoke 4-person sauna, made in Finland.
