Such an exquisitely unique house rarely comes on the market!
The five most appropriate five words to describe this “Pearl of Laren” are:
Stylish, Spacious, Secluded, Characteristic, and, Bright
We are very proud to present this large (445m2) country house. “The Lingenskamp” was built in 1911 since which time, remarkably, the house has stayed within only one family. It stands on a large plot of land (c.4,500m2) with a south facing aspect. The spacious drive leads to a beautifully laid garden with a variety of terraces, an outdoor heated pool and a very large landscaped garden with a magnificent 100-year old Copper Beech as its centerpiece. The ensemble creates, the atmosphere of the perfect English country house breathing beauty, privacy and peace.
The house is within easy walking distance from the center of Laren, the woods, tennis and hockey clubs, is therefore ideal as a family house. The house was completely renovated ten years ago and is in outstanding condition.
Large entrance hall with original marble tiles leading to an authentic staircase, cloakroom and spacious bathroom. There is also the entrance to the cellar and adjacent wine-cellar.
The hallway leads to a classic sitting room with original features, oak floors and a generous open fire place. The adjacent conservatory has half circle views of the garden and access is possible by the double doors leading out to the beech tree.
On the front side of the house there is also a TV room with adjacent music room.
On the garden side of the house you enter the very spacious kitchen which was formerly an artist’s studio with ceilings reaching 3.83m in height giving a feeling of infinite space and light. The kitchen is fitted with every modern convenience (Bulthaup and Gaggenau) and leads on to the main terrace on the south side of the house and the surrounding beautiful gardens and swimming pool.
The adjacent pantry gives access to the indoor garage on the front side of the house, and the guesthouse facing the pool and garden with kitchen, bathroom and extra WC which is ideal, for example, for an au pair.
Before reaching the top of the stairs there is a beautiful bedroom overlooking the garden. At the top of the stairs on the west side there are two large double bedrooms. Between the bedrooms is a bathroom with shower, toilet and basin. A third bedroom overlooks the front of the house adjacent to which is a large bathroom with bath and separate shower, double basins and WC. Between the bathroom and the master bedroom is a walk-in closet fully fitted with hanging space and built-in cupboards. The spacious master bedroom looks out onto the pool and garden.
The second floor has fitted cupboards with connections for washing machine and drier, a sixth bedroom and a bathroom.
The house has two standing-height storage rooms which would be ideal for a gym and/or sauna and a separate wine cellar.
The large garden surrounding the villa has storage for wood for the fire and an artificial grass hockey pitch as well as various terraces and little corners for quietude. The gardens give great privacy and being by the heated swimming pool feels as if one has arrived for vacation.
There is room for at least one car through the double doors. The technical installation for the pool is also conveniently located there.
