Exceptionally spacious townhouse with beautifully landscaped back garden in the desirable Statenkwartier.
This elegant, well-maintained home boasts an unusually wide footprint (almost 9m), and encompasses more than 400m2 of exquisite living space arranged over four storeys including 8 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 balconies and two studies.
Among the many exquisite period architectural details are marble and parquet floors, lofty ornamental ceilings, leaded glass windows, panelled doors, and decorative mouldings.
The location offers easy access to many of the city’s most popular amenities, including the harbour, beach, and boulevard of Scheveningen and of course the famous Frederik Hendriklaan, ‘the Fred’, with its wide selection of shops and cafes. In addition, a number of international (including the German, French, and European) schools are mere minutes away, as are several bus and tram lines.
Past the front door is a vestibule with Art Nouveau wall finishes and marble flooring and panelling, where a double door inset with bevelled glass opens to an imposing reception hall with beamed ceiling, beautiful mosaic parquet floor, and a marble mantel.
A separate study at the front looks out on the wide Statenlaan. Off the hall is the ca. 15 meter long living/dining room, featuring a bay window, gorgeous ornate plaster ceiling, mosaic parquet flooring, 2 marble mantels, leaded glass windows and shutters. There is access to the beautifully landscaped back garden (NE) via double doors in the conservatory adjoining the dining room.
An intermediate hallway with a large modern guest lavatory and a cloakroom leads to the kitchen (Schiffini), equipped with AEG and Siemens appliances, including an extra-large oven from the brand ‘Ilve’ and hob. This hallway also has a door to the cellar, which houses the central heating unit.
A beautiful stairway with elegantly carved woodwork ascends to the first floor. On this level is a large landing, a bright bedroom/study, and a spacious bedroom with marble mantel, bay window, and covered radiator. The landing and bedrooms are laid with herringbone-patterned parquet floors. A bedroom facing the rear has a marble mantel and an en-suite bathroom with shower, double washbasin, toilet, and bidet. A 4th bedroom, accessible from the hall, also has an en-suite bathroom with bath, washbasin, bidet, and toilet.
At the top of the stairs to the second floor is a huge landing with skylight. Facing the front are a bedroom/study with 2 built-in wardrobes, a good-sized bedroom with skylight and a balcony, and a bathroom with shower, washbasin, and toilet. A hallway on this level leads to a further 2 bedrooms, of which one has a marble mantel and balcony, and a 4th bathroom with skylight, corner bath, shower, washbasin, toilet, and heated towel rail.
