Near the city center and yet in a private, green oasis lies this modern, distinctive and comfortable villa; 'the best of both worlds'. What a special, quiet and lovely light detached villa we may offer!
Built under the architecture of the Almere architect R.M. Agricola in 1994-1995 and inspired by Rietveld and De Stijl. The play of lines and daylight are recognizable. These emerge in the connected rectangles that form the core of the villa, in the roof of the studio on the roof terrace and in the large glass area (with vide) in the living room. The closed character of the wall on the street side gives the residents "back cover," while the high (vide) glazing on the south and east side provides plenty of daylight (electric blinds present!) and a tangible connection to the garden and the spectacularly named garden section with pond. A similar indoor / outdoor connection but with a different angle, is created with the later built heated conservatory at the rear. This can be used throughout the year and enables you to enjoy the charm of all seasons.
This residential villa is located on a court with a round core planted with birch and fly pine trees around which there are 4 homes. You enter an oasis of greenery and tranquility. The hustle and bustle of city life is just a few steps behind you. And that is unique at about 10 minutes by bike from the bustling city center. The villa is very secluded on a plot of 1000 m2. At the rear, the plot is surrounded by greenery, many trees, a park with a walking and cycling path. The Bos der Onverzettelijken with the Leeghwaterplas area across the lane. At the front, on private property, there are 2 parking spaces.
These facts by way of introduction. What makes this villa very special too is its versatile uses. The villa consists of a main building with floors and a side wing without. The west side wing was used as a practice space for many years. It included a secretarial office with waiting room and two consulting rooms. For the last 8 years, the multipurpose rooms have been used as a kangaroo home. The side wing is connected indoors to the main building by a transition room that is set up as a kitchen and shared utility room.
The entire house has a luxurious appearance, great living comfort, and a high degree of sustainability. This makes the whole property even more attractive. The house is connected to district heating but for the (floor) heating can be used the heat pump and a biomass boiler (pellet bunker located outside the house). On the roof are 23 solar panels of 360 Wp. The house has recently been valued at a final A+ energy label. The underlying report is of course available for inspection.
Finally, the park-like atmosphere of the garden surrounding the house and the pond and its entourage of rocks and plants deserve special mention. The planting is composed in a way that blooms and greenery can be admired in every season. The west wing also has a garden. This one faces northeast. This garden is also leafy, has an (atrium) pond and planted beds surrounded by paving.
