Situated on Kanaaldijk in Koedijk, in a rural setting yet nearby all amenities, is this unique 'stolp' farmhouse dating back to 1836. In 2015, this municipal monument was fully renovated, insulated and fitted with all modern conveniences.
This modern home has distinct personality due to the countless original architectural details that have been preserved. For example, the characteristic original 'square' is visible throughout the home. The beautiful fireplace mantel, with a new wood burner and the authentic front facade with stunning period details and its traditional roof - partly tiled and partly thatched - lend this home extraordinary character.
Layout: The front door opens to a spacious hall that accesses the large storage closet, meter cupboard, the restroom and the rest of the home. The entire main level is fitted with concrete flooring with underfloor heating. The home's characteristic details are visible from every angle and the exposed roof square emphasizes the exceptional sense of space. The large family kitchen, fitted with a range of appliances, looks on to the lovely sitting area with a wood burner. This part of the home is in directly contact with the central space of the house. The central space opens to a study, laundry room, bedroom with a bathroom, the living room and stairs to the first floor. The living room, off the garden, is bright and spacious and is also fitted with underfloor heating. A second commanding fireplace mantel, which is now only a decorative feature, lends the modern space a welcoming touch.
The central staircase leads to the open gallery/ first floor. This level accommodates two bedrooms and a bathroom with a double shower, toilet, bathtub and double vanity. The large open gallery can be converted to create extra rooms.
The second set of stairs, which offer a phenomenal view of the house, leads to the attic room which of course can also be appointed as a bedroom. From here, roof windows offer a sweeping view of the surroundings. The majority of the roof is thatched, the remainder is tiled.
The magic doesn't end inside, because outside, the home borders on water to two sides: Noordhollandsch Kanaal at the front, a waterway leading from Amsterdam-Noord to Den Helder with the Schoorlse dunes on the horizon. And at the rear, a waterway that allows you to boat (or skate!) throughout the entire town. The garden has an unobstructed view of the water and trees.
