Historic farmhouse. This unique farmhouse was rebuilt in 2009, respecting the history of the farm 'De Hooghkamer'. A large manor house with authentic ambience, fitted with all the luxury and comfort you can expect of a modern house. The farmhouse was built under the supervision of a monument architect with an eye for detail; the spacious, luxury kitchen with hearth, the atmospheric living room, the family room, the three bedrooms, and two luxury bathrooms make the farmhouse a wonderful place to live.
Year of construction 2009; Floor area 291 m2; Volume 11842 m2; Plot 831 m2
The bridge with electric ornamental gate offers access to the farm. The house is situated in the front house of the so-called longhouse farm. You enter through the beautiful, spacious hall with marble floor and immediately experience the space and tranquillity that characterise this farmhouse. The hall has a large wardrobe, a guest toilet with urinal and sink, the meter cupboard, the stairs to the former milk cellar, and a staircase leading to the first floor.
The milk cellar, with natural stone floor, has been given its original light-blue colour and the windows have also been restored to the original situation. The large milk cellar also houses a sauna. The hall leads to a very spacious and luxury living kitchen (Miele) that is fitted with Miele built-in appliances, a kitchen island with stove and sink, and a sand-lime brick hearth with fireplace. Behind the kitchen are the former boot room, the bike storage as well as the large utility room with plenty of storage space. The washing machine, dryer, and freezer have been placed in a custom-made unit.
The Belgian hard stone floor with large tiles of 1 m x 1 m creates a natural transition between the kitchen and living room. The atmospheric living room with plenty of light has a deep storage closet, the former closet bed, and a wooden staircase to the 'upper room'.
Another staircase leads you to the large, first-floor landing. This floor has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The large master bedroom has two dormers and a walk-in closet with separate toilet. You can enter the luxury bathroom from the master bedroom. The hallway also has a staircase to a very spacious, third bedroom with atmospheric wooden truss.
The upper room and the first floor have oak parquet flooring.
The entire home with energy label A is fitted with an alarm system with glass breakage and motion sensors.
Garden: The architecture-designed garden has several patios and beech hedges and has become one with the historic trees. Thanks to the favourable location, the garden offers both sun and shade throughout the day.
Location: there is a reason Teylingen received a high score on the 'Elsevier' list of best municipalities in 2019. This concerns an annual comparison and assessment based on 97 points, such as living, working, shopping, education, and healthcare, but also tranquillity and space. Leiden, The Hague, and Amsterdam are excellently accessible by both private transport and public transport. The beach and bulb fields are within cycling distance as, of course, are schools, shops, and sports facilities.
Tranquil and atmospheric living; in summary that is what you can expect of this unique farmhouse. You are very welcome to come by for an extensive viewing.
