Very spacious thatched country house with unique features
Coming through the entrance gate and driving on to the stately forecourt, beautifully bordered by the green environment, you instantly know that this is an exceptional location. In the rural and wooded environment, at just a stone's throw from the centre of Haaksbergen at Enschedesestraat 90, you will find this very spacious thatched country house situated on a 3,000 m2 plot. The English style country house, built in 2003 under architectural design, is the radiant focal point at a location that offers plenty of privacy, peace and tranquillity, and natural beauty all around.
The landscaped garden matches perfectly with the characteristic style of the house. A splendid beech hedge surrounds almost the entire plot while borders with flowering plants, the broad lawn, and the swimming pool positioned in the sun all together create a magnificent garden. Next to the northwest-facing forecourt, there are four parking spaces and the ramp going down to the underground garage. A bit further on is the entrance to the house that lies at an elevated position.
The stately open hall clearly is the centre of the house. The various rooms are interconnected in such a way that they create a circular route together with the hall, which is partially accentuated by the white granite floor. From here you will have a clear view of the luxuriously decorated mezzanine floor. Adjacent to the spacious hall is the stylish entrance to the staircase which also leads on to the substantial dining cum living room. The largest part of this room consists of a tasteful, round bay with a seating area and fireplace and stunning views out to the garden. Another part of the room is perfect as a seating area for watching TV. Furthermore, there are French doors leading to an enclosed and comfortable terrace. Adjacent to the dining area, double doors lead to the large kitchen-diner which features an island and all modern appliances. Just like in the living room, there are many windows (with sensor-controlled sunscreens) that offer wonderful views of the garden. The kitchen has direct access to the outdoor terrace and a corridor leads to the large utility room which offers lots of storage space. Also on the ground floor, in a part of the house that can be closed off as a separate area, you will find the master bedroom which has an entrance hall leading to the walk-in wardrobe and the stylish bathroom (featuring, for example, an infrared cabin and sunshower). The French doors in this bedroom give access to the garden and the glorious, heated swimming pool. The pool area also includes a garden house with a kitchenette, toilet and a dressing room, and which also offers a lot of storage space.
The first floor consists of a wide mezzanine floor/landing with, for example, a library and a seating and work area. The landing in the right wing of the house gives access to three large bedrooms of which two also include an enclosed balcony. This wing also has a second luxury bathroom. The left wing includes a dedicated fitness room/gym as well as a room that can be used for storage or as another bedroom.
The large attic space above this floor can be reached by a retractable ladder. An additional surprise to this wonderful house is the basement that runs underneath almost the entire house. This lower floor includes a dedicated wine cellar and larder, and a technical room with, for example, the installations for the central vacuum system, the swimming pool, the air conditioning, and for the underfloor and hot air heating system. The basement is also partly used as a garage for several cars and as a workspace while the larger part of the basement can be used for other purposes.
Other important information that should be mentioned is that the house is optimally insulated and includes a more than comprehensive electronic alarm and security system installed in the garden and on the outer walls of the house.
