One of the most beautiful and impressive homes on the Eeuwigelaan in Bergen, bordering on the Noord-Hollands Dune Reserve and close to the North Sea.
The monumental villa is encircled by a splendid 3600 square metre formal garden designed by an architect. Located at the beginning of the elegant Eeuwigelaan in Bergen the villa is surrounded by different types of vegetation on all sides. The stately residence was built by a judge in 1912. A classical Roman villa served as his inspiration for the final design.
The residence features a large sunny garden with a pond, located directly adjacent to a nature conservation area. It has a large terrace that leads directly into the sitting-room and kitchen. The residence boasts an attractive driveway with a monumental automatic gate and entrance. There is ample parking space for a number of vehicles. There is also a basement with a separate entrance, a garage that can accommodate two cars, and a storeroom.
The residence is walking distance from the lovely artist’s community of Bergen, with its 15th century church (Ruïnekerk), pleasant restaurants, the European School, and shops open seven days a week. It’s just four-and-a-half kilometres from the beach at Bergen aan Zee, accessible by either car or bicycle. Amsterdam is only 40 minutes away.
This villa dating from 1912 was the first house built on the Eeuwigelaan. In 2002 the building was carefully restored and renovated, with respect for the original details. This has resulted in an extremely comfortable home. In the villa’s design, a smaller section of the basement was constructed as a separate residence. This is architecturally and physically fully separated from the rest of the house. The ambience and architectural features of the interior and exterior of the residence have been retained in all their beauty. The feeling of comfort is enhanced by the amount of space offered by this home: a total of 450 square metres of residential space. Almost all the rooms feature generous proportions and high ceilings.
Other elements in the interior include the massive entrance hall with a stunning 16th century hearth, a cosy double sitting room with a fireplace, the bright sun porch with fireplace, a spacious modern living kitchen and an impressive oak staircase ascending to the first and second floors. The ground floor and the first floor also feature wooden wainscoting.
The first floor contains a lovely office space with a view of the garden and terrace. There’s another room on this floor with a balcony that could serve as a bedroom or an office. Finally, the spacious master bedroom on the first floor has a large 22 square metre balcony with casement doors opening to a view of the garden. This luxurious en suite bathroom is equipped with a bath, a separate shower, a lavatory and a designer radiator.
There are three bedrooms on the second floor, along with a separate bathroom.
All the principal rooms of the residence have oak herringbone pattern parquet floors, with the exception of the basement. In addition, the basement contains an extra 70 square metre apartment with separate amenities and its own entrance.
The villa is multifunctional and currently serves a double purpose as a home and a gallery.
IT IS HIGHLY SUITABLE FOR AN ART COLLECTOR, A HOME BASED PRACTICE OF OFFICE. IT IS ALSO SUITABLE FOR A LARGE FAMILY OR A FAMILY WITH A LIVE-IN AU PAIR.
The entire residence is in an excellent state of repair!
