“Huize Boschdrift” is one of the few remaining original residences built by local industrialists during the 1930s within the lush landscape between Hengelo and Enschede. The villa, designed in the architectural style popular at the time, was completely and beautifully renovated and updated in 2014 and now offers everything that modern comfort can offer.
The stately residence sits within a private park of over two hectares (approx. 5.6 acres), offering splendid views of the Twente landscape. Commissioned by the Gerth family, the villa was designed by architect Wouda, who studied with the renowned Dutch architect Berlage. He designed various manor houses and villas during the 1920s and 1930s, including “Huize Boschdrift”.
This truly amazing property lets you enjoy the tranquillity and privacy of the wonderful, wooded surroundings while the towns of Hengelo and Enschede are both only a 10-minute drive. Other interesting locations such as UT Twente, the Innovation Campus, and the Driene golf courses are within walking or cycling distance.
The front door leads to the spacious entrance hall with the beautifully finished staircase and the downstairs toilet with a wall-mounted lavatory and a washstand. The hall also gives direct access to the practical study/home office. Passing the cloak area, you enter the elegant living room with a cosy fireplace. The triple-aspect living room is wonderfully spacious and light and has large glass-paned sliding doors to the veranda. Adjacent to the living room, you find the impressive kitchen-diner – again with a very spacious setup and featuring various high-end built-in appliances (Miele). Another door in the kitchen leads to a practical utility room with built-in storage space and a door leading outside. Back in the hallway, you can reach the multifunctional garage with a separate bike storage. Going down the steps to the basement, you will see how this space is divided into several different rooms.
The landing gives access to three large bedrooms, of which two include luxuriously furnished dressing rooms. Other doors on this floor lead to a gorgeous and secluded roof terrace, a practical laundry room, and two very luxuriously finished bathrooms – both featuring a walk-in shower, a wall-mounted lavatory, and two beautiful washbasins.
The storage attic can be accessed via a loft ladder. It will be relatively easy to realise a fixed staircase after which the attic offers the option to create an additional room.
An electrically operated gate gives access to the impressive and very long drive. The surrounding garden is nothing less than magnificent and offers all the privacy you want. You can sit down and relax on one of the terraces, which are at different levels, or on the comfortable veranda next to the living room. The garden also includes several lawns and a unique swimming pond with a practical jetty.
