Situated in what may well be the most beautiful spot in Leeuwarden, on a spacious 1,252sqm lot, is this expansive detached villa built according to architectural plan, on the corner of Ytsjesân peninsula.
The house was built to premium standards, is almost completely energy-neutral, generation proof and allows for working from home. Surrounded by water, with a private boat slip and jetty, this is the ideal home for watersports-enthusiasts. Its layout and amenities make this a unique villa. All in a prime location!
A location on the outskirts of the city and the fringes of the neighborhood, ensuring an ultimate feeling of freedom and space, designated a "STAR location" by the Municipality of Leeuwarden. Rightly so, as the location is truly unparalleled. The house is surrounded by water at three sides: a large lake at the east, a waterway to the south and a wide waterway offering magnificent views of the sunset at the west. The peninsula across from the southern waterway is an archeological site - a protected area where development is forbidden.
The house is in a lovely neighborhood at the end of the street, so that there is very little traffic here, making it a safe spot for children to play. But the garden offers plenty of play options as well. The professionally landscaped garden spans a total of 975 sqm and features patios, several lawns and a secluded outdoor shower. The garden follows the outline of the house, which is the picture of balanced harmony; all windows, exterior and interior doors are 4-plane. At the front of the house, there is ample on-lot parking on the driveway and on the municipal land out front. This latter plot can easily accommodate 4 cars.
The private boat slip and jetty (renewed last year) with a swimming ladder at the east offer immediate access to the Himpenser Wielen open waterway, part of the Staande Mastroute for large sailing ships. From here, watersports area De Alde Feanen is approximately 45 minutes away.
If you prefer to stay on dry land, you can enjoy watching the ships sail by from your garden, and look out over the water and natural landscape on the opposite side of the lake, where 'wild' horses graze. The sound of silence... broken only by birdsong and the occasional frog. From the water, you can easily recognize the other high-end homes.
Zuiderburen is a vibrant neighborhood south of Leeuwarden. The area is home to several schools, (sports) clubs (Pitch and Putt golf course), supermarkets and other shops and healthcare amenities. The neighborhood is characterized by water, but also has lovely hiking and cycling trails. The area is in a favorable location relative to Leeuwarden's city center: just a 10-minute drive or 15-20-minute bicycle ride away. The bus stop is within 3 minutes' walking distance.
Leeuwarden was recently the Cultural Capitol of Europa. This (university) city has a bustling city center with canals, parks, promenades and markets: charming and culturally developed, with a full range of amenities.
Spacious entrance with a double door, access to the study, utility room, family room and a double door to a central hall with a restroom and the staircase. The central hall is bathed in natural light due to the skylight on the first floor.
The kitchen is at the heart of the home. Look out over the water as you prepare your meals. French doors open to the water-facing patio, one of the garden's 7 patios in total. There is always a sunny, shaded or secluded spot to be found.
The Rotpunkt kitchen features ample cupboard space and is fitted with a range of Miele appliances, including a domino system with a grill, 2 induction cookers, a stir-fry burner, built-in coffeemaker connected to water, combination microwave, oven with a pyrolysis feature and a dishwasher. The large chef's island is fitted with a Quooker, electro hub and soap dispenser. The Gutmann range hood has its generator on the first floor (for noise reduction). The American refrigerator and freezer is energy-efficient and is also has a water line.
The south-facing living room is in open connection with the kitchen/lounge and, like the kitchen, features many large windows and French doors to the garden and the large south-facing patio. During the winter months, this is a cozy and welcoming space with a view of the water. Even with the sun low on the horizon, daylight pours in during the winter, while during the summer months, the room remains cool and not as shrill. The downstairs level features stone flooring which continues out to the west-facing patio and the patio south of the kitchen. Both patios have full foundations. The living room connects to an extra room, which can be closed off by means of a heavy, noise-reducing sliding door. This part of the living room is currently used as a tv room.
The spacious ground-floor master bedroom makes the house generation-proof. This room has a private entrance, which will also allow for use as a guest wing. The bedroom includes a walk-in closet and French doors to the patio. The connecting bathroom is fitted with a bathtub, walk-in shower, large double vanity and a toilet. The corridor off the bedroom accesses a large Finnish sauna with an audio system. The secluded outdoor space with a cold shower completes the spa experience.
Also on the ground floor: a garage with an automatic door (23sqm), a study (9sqm), utility room (9sqm) with the laundry station and access to the large standing-height cellar (12sqm). This entire level (including the garage) is fitted with underfloor heating. The floors in the garage and the cellar are tiled.
The architecture of the house is sun-focused, only the garage and the study face the street.
Beautifully bright and spacious staircase with a large skylight. The landing accesses 4 bedrooms, a bathroom and a large walk-in closet. There are two bedrooms (both ca. 20sqm) in the east wing, connecting to a 2m-long balcony which spans the full width of the house. The view of the water is breathtaking and calming at the same time.
The west wing accommodates another 15 sqm bedroom in addition to this level's largest bedroom (23sqm) which also opens to a balcony. The bathroom is fitted with a walk-in shower and two sinks with a heated mirror. The entire 1st floor was recently fitted low-temperature radiators, so that the designer radiators in the bathroom are decorative only. The bathroom is fitted with an infra-red panel to replace the heating function of these radiators. The separate restroom is off the landing.
The south wing of the first floor, above the living room, is used as an enormous storage attic. Further storage space can be found above the garage and under the roof of the main house.
