In the heart of Aerdenhout, on shady Borgerweg, is this charming thatched detached villa (1930) with an also thatched garage with attic (standing height) on a spacious plot of 1,430 m2. In 2012, the villa was completely renovated by the current owners, extended and modernised using high-quality materials. The ample living area on the ground floor has playful height differences and windows on three sides extending to floor level and with three large sliding doors. This has created a very beautiful daylight entry in the house, with a seamless transition from exterior to interior, nature becoming one whole with the building.
The wonderfully light extension on the ground floor is modern and tastefully combined with the existing house. The three broad sliding doors open onto the large South terrace (37 m²), that has the same height differences as the floor of the living room, considerably increasing the dimensions of the ground floor optically.
This excellently maintained villa ‘Shelter’ has an attractive, very light living with glass om three sides, a wood-fired fireplace, an open-plan kitchen, a separate TV/piano room on the ground floor, 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms on the first floor and a 4th bedroom on the second floor. In a word: this is the perfect place for a family with growing children, but also a very convenient house for an elderly couple. The new residents can unpack their moving boxes and immediately enjoy the luxury and comfort this wonderful house has to offer.
The house is located near arterial roads: Amsterdam, Schiphol Airport and the Hague are only 30 car minutes away. Shops for everyday purchases are just around the corner, as are the Heemstede-Aerdenhout railway station with an excellent connection to Amsterdam, Schiphol Airport and The Hague, while the village cores of Heemstede, Overveen and Bloemendaal and the 750-year old centre of Haarlem offer a choice of restaurants, shops, bars and theatres at 20 minutes cycling distance. Villa Shelter is 6 km from the beach, the sea and the beautiful Zuid Kennemerland National Park.
