Spacious and bright semi-detached villa (built in 1928) situated in sought-after Hilversum-Zuid, on a quiet street. The villa is on a family-friendly lane within walking distance of the Fabritius School and nearby main roads to Utrecht/Amsterdam/Schiphol, vast nature reserves and boutique shopping street ‘De Gijsbrecht’. Also in the immediate proximity of the International School and NS train station Sportpark.
The villa was thoroughly remodeled in 2011, an extra bathroom was added on the second floor and the balcony was incorporated into the first-floor bedroom in 2018.
Original period details such as tall ceilings, stained glass, tiling and panel doors lend the property its typical Interbellum character.
Ground floor: porched entrance, foyer with original wall tiles, spacious hall, contemporary restroom with a washbasin. Stair closet with the meter cupboard (modern electrics) and access to the standing-height cellar.
The living area is of generous dimensions, features a bay with stained-glass windows at the front and French doors to the garden at the rear. Multiple windows (including side windows) bathe the space in natural light. The fully equipped and high-quality, contemporary designer Poggenpohl kitchen with handle-free cabinets is fitted with an induction cooker, combination oven/microwave, 2nd oven, refrigerator, freezer, Quooker and ample cupboard space. The entire ground floor level is fitted with beautiful whitewash oak herringbone parquet flooring.
1st floor: landing, contemporary bathroom with a walk-in shower, double vanity, 2nd toilet, designer radiator and underfloor heating. Spacious master bedroom at the rear with wall-to-wall wardrobes. Second spacious bedroom at the front and a 3rd bedroom at the rear.
2nd floor: landing, fourth spacious bedroom with a play/bed mezzanine, large dormer and play area under the slanted roof. Every child's dream come true! It would be relatively easy to convert this room into 2 separate bedrooms. Finally, this level also accommodates a second large bedroom with a bathtub, separate shower, toilet, sink and closet with the central heating unit and fittings for the laundry machine/dryer. This bathroom was installed by the current owners in 2018.
The villa features a front garden, side garden/driveway for two cars and a sunny backyard spanning 13 meters long by 10 meters wide, facing southwest. The garden is low-maintenance and secluded. The automatically operated awning offers a cool spot in the shade on hot days. At the back of the yard is a brick shed (former garage) with electrics.
In short: a magnificent, spacious and turn-key family villa in an excellent and sought-after neighborhood!
