Every day enjoy a panoramic view of the commercial and pleasure cruises, the Limburg Government and Ceramique. One of the most beautiful villas in Maastricht will be transformed into two state-of-the art apartments of exceptional quality and generous dimensions. Here all living wishes become reality and enjoyment is written in capital letters. Will you choose Louis on the ground floor, a ground floor apartment of 204m2 with a private garden or Leonard, a penthouse maisonette of no less than 325m2 with several balconies and loggias?
This unique project will be realized at the Blekerij, a quiet street right on the banks of the Meuse. After a short walk you are in the middle of the historic centre of Maastricht or in the district of Sint Pieter with many high level facilities. Within a few minutes you can drive the Kennedy Bridge towards the A2/A79 motorways or follow the Prins Bisschopsingel in the direction of Hasselt. A little further along the banks of the Maas are the marina and on the other side of the Hoge Kanaaldijk you walk towards the beautiful nature around the Sint Pietersberg.
If you become the new resident of Louis or Leonard you will get the ownership of a brand new apartment or penthouse in hull, which means that you can have the finishing done entirely under your own management and according to your own wishes. The basement offers space for a shared bicycle cellar, garbage storage, a technical room and storage rooms. The private area will be laid out as a communal garden and parking space, including charging points for hybrid cars and secured with an automatic sliding gate and video intercom system.
Louis, ground floor
Louis is accessible through the main entrance and the central lobby with elevator and impressive staircase. The apartment has two period rooms with ceiling heights of 4.60 meters and a living area of 204m2. The view of the banks of the Maas is formidable and the incidence of light will invite your interior designer for a suitable layout. The adjoining private garden of approximately 77m² will be delivered including a garden design by a well-known garden architect. This apartment has two parking spaces on the shared parking lot and a storage room in the basement. The beautiful, large rooms of the apartment are not only suitable for spacious living but also for combining living with working at home.
The Eclectic villa at Blekerij 52 was commissioned by the family Louis Leonard Joseph L'hoëst. Originally, the adjacent building at Blekerij 50 was part of the villa, but was later split off. Around the middle of the nineteenth century, L'hoëst was involved in the establishment of the paper mill L'hoëst, Weustenraad & Cie, the later KNP and nowadays SAPPI. The architects responsible for the villa were Remont & Fils, in Liège (B). The construction of this villa probably took place in the period between 1880 and 1890.
The villa is situated in a small area on the western bank of the Meuse, which was originally separated from the villa park by the attenuated canal to Liege. Because of this location, the villa is strongly connected to the nineteenth-century urban development of Maastricht. Of great importance because of the historical spatial relationship with the surrounding waters, roads and facilities.
After the abolition of the fortification law in 1867, the vacant building site on the south side of the city of Maastricht was "taken over" by the wealthy people of Maastricht. They had a number of spacious villas built here from 1887 onwards. The villa L'hoëst is one of the first examples that was built here in get "Villapark".
