Driving down Kruisseltlaan, when the gate to this property comes into sight, the enchantment begins! To the left of the driveway: the woods. And to the right: a sweeping view of the lawn and the grounds. As you pass the guesthouse and the roundabout, there it is in its full glory: this fabulous villa.
Thatched roof, unlimited luxury and a phenomenal 360-degree view due to its elevated positioning and the surrounding meadows below. A spectacular panorama of the rolling landscape that will captivate in every season.
This country home originally dates back to 1962, and was completely renovated and extended over the years (1999 to 2003) in accordance with an architectural plan by architect Kuipers from Deurningen. This home has a volume of approximately 1,450 m³ and a floor area of approximately 325 sqm. The location is excellent, offering privacy and maintaining a perfect balance with the landscape - monumental, majestic trees combine with the impeccable landscaping to lend the property an elegant country manor feel.
The white plaster exterior of the villa is complemented by warm outdoor lighting. The house sits on an amazing 13,884 sqm lot. Of course, the property includes exclusive features such as a spa in the basement, porched terraces, an elegant bar, 2 bathrooms, a separate family room and cars can be parked inside in the barn with a large carport. And when it's time for some R&R, right there, waiting for you on the elevated south-facing terrace, is the sunken jacuzzi so that you can end your day in perfect relaxation.
When the double front doors open, you can choose which direction to go. The ground floor level includes an expansive master bedroom with a luxury private bathroom, and a spacious country kitchen/lounge. The living room is characterized by its white ceiling beams and elegant fireplace. The French doors to the bar and the stylish family room add symmetry. This room is the ideal spot for the kids to kick back, play videogames or study - there's plenty of room for everyone. The bar features French doors to the terrace, and, like the bedroom, lead through to the welcoming veranda from where you can enjoy the sunset.
The central staircase leads to the open gallery on the first floor. This level includes 3 large bedrooms; the layout can easily be reconfigured to accommodate more bedrooms. The bedrooms feature walk-in closets and recessed lights, and the unique dormers and semi-circular windows are sure to catch your eye: all perfectly aligned to the style of this thatched country home. The luxury bathroom on this level is fitted with features including a double rain shower and corner whirlpool bath.
Just off the garden is a separate guesthouse, again with a thatched roof. Inside, the guesthouse includes a shower room, restroom and small living room with French doors to the terrace.
The perimeter of the grounds is fenced off with Heras fencing, and the property is fitted with a professional burglar system. The technical systems of the house include an extensive meter cupboard with high voltage connections, 2 Nefit high-performance combination kettles, an 800-liter boiler, underfloor heating, water pump and decalcification system. The grounds, gardens, villa and the guesthouse are all impeccably maintained.
In between the city of Oldenzaal and the village De Lutte, Kruisseltlaan leads to the stunning De Wilmersberg country hotel. This area, and Tankenberg, are recognized as one of Twente's most beautiful natural parks. The A1 highway is less than a 10-minute commute away.
Do you enjoy playing golf? Het Rijk van ’t Sybrook, one of The Netherlands' most beautiful golf courses, is just a 15-minute drive away. Nearby Oldenzaal is widely known for its bustling sidewalk cafes, events and excellent secondary schools which are within cycling distance of the house.
