In a wooded area, surrounded by country estates, is this unique, stunning VILLA with a separate ARTIST"S STUDIO/GUESTHOUSE and connecting double GARRAGE with a private practice space at the rear. Especially for car collectors: the garage has a glass wall so that you can see your prized possessions from the garden!
Privacy, greenery, peace and quiet are the terms that best characterize this location. From your own garden, there is direct access to the royal woodlands, predominantly comprised of a collection of former country estates. Not only the villa's location and beauty make it exceptional, but the property can also serve countless purposes.

The lot also includes a roofed storage area (for firewood) and a single-level, detached garden house that is currently used as an artist's studio, but is equipped so as to also allow for easy conversion into a guesthouse.
