De Borcht 2 - Spectacular villa with ultimate privacy
Enjoy absolute privacy and luxury living in this unique villa with wrap around garden directly bordering water. The residence is set in an idyllic and secluded location across from the De Kalfjeslaan within walking distance of Amstelpark. Luxury down to the smallest detail with ample privacy. No direct neighbors, except for the twittering birds, of course. It's hard to believe this home is in bustling Amsterdam. But it is. Gelderlandplein is a 5-minute bicycle ride away, and the A10 beltway is only a 3-minute drive. Country living in the city!
An abundance of exquisite details and stunning spaces - right here
Come home, park your car on the driveway in front of the garage and step into the impressive hall graced with French doors and a fireplace. The stunning staircase to the 1st floor lends the space unparalleled appeal. The countless windows and the sliding doors create a beautiful flow of the home, seamlessly connecting the interior with the exterior.
These are just a few of the exceptional details that this 276 sqm sophisticated villa has to offer. But there is so much more. Take the garden, for instance. One part of the garden borders directly on the water at the rear. The landscaping of the other section ensures that you can enjoy the lush garden in complete privacy - every day here feels like a holiday.
This original footprint of this villa dates back to the 1960s, renovated according to architectural plans drafted by Dik Smeding in 1992 and fully renovated again in 2015. The residence defines itself with its elegant details such as modular skylights, tailormade wooden doors leading to the living room and the 40-cm baseboards in the living room and hall. The staircase is a true eye-catcher. The living room features an extraordinary honeycomb shape, providing the home with an exceptionally open and welcoming layout. There are windows all around the living room with an incredible unobstructed view of the green lawn and leafy landscaping of the garden. The deck against the house is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the sunshine.
The ground-floor level includes the 2-car garage, the restroom, the living room with an open-plan kitchen and a spacious utility room with fitted closets and room for several laundry machines and dryers. The wardrobe wall between the laundry space and the hall is highly convenient and unobtrusive due to its sleek lines and choice of color.
The beautiful open-plan kitchen with an island by Poggenpohl features top-of-the- line Gaggenau appliances including a steam oven, hot-air oven, coffee machine, wine cooler, 2 warming drawers. In addition, there is a Bora induction cooker and Quooker. The house is fitted with underfloor heating throughout, and its central vacuum system makes cleaning easy and efficient. The electric fireplace is centrally positioned and opens to two sides, so that you can enjoy the fire from both sides of the living space.
The palatial staircase leads to the landing with the second restroom and two bedrooms and an office; the latter could also be converted to a 2nd bathroom. The master bedroom has a magnificent walk-in closet and connects to the bathroom. The walk-in closet was originally a room with windows, which would make it easy to create a 3rd bedroom. The 2nd bedroom is on the opposite side of the hall. A feature worth mentioning is that every space is fitted with air conditioning, so that the house remains cool on even the most sweltering days.
The luxurious spa-like bathroom is equipped with a free-standing bathtub, walk-in shower, toilet, double vessel sinks and a designer radiator. This level also features the same dark wooden flooring as the ground floor - even in the bathroom!
This villa is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac in Buitenveldert. The street is comprised of only 5 plots with villas, ensuring optimum privacy. Within walking distance of Amstelpark and close to the Riekermolen windmill and Amstel River. The backyard borders on a decorative water feature and leafy De Kalfjeslaan natural area. A unique and luxurious home surrounded by greenery and yet just a few minutes' cycling distance from elegant Oud-Zuid or Gelderlandplein. And just a 2-minute drive from the A10 beltway. Will you choose the best of both worlds and make this villa your new home?
