On a hilltop in Overijssel, an inspiring environment in the shadowy transition area of the Sallandse Heuvelrug to the Vecht and Regge, the mansion Hoeve Bargsigt was built in 1924 according to the blueprints of the famous architect T.A. Eschauzier, who was also responsible for the blueprints of the extension in 1936.
Hoeve Bargsigt developed as a cultural and literary centre where writers, philosophers, artists and romantics translated their world of thoughts to words, images and sounds.
As soon as the large gate at the beginning of the driveway opens, you will feel like you’re in another world. At the end of the driveway the large, romantic house with thatched roof appears, built against a hill that used to offer a view of the Lemelerberg, which explains the name of Bargsigt (mountain view).
The architect used the rolling terrain to his advantage. This makes Bargsigt an exciting house where a mezzanine, dome, balcony and a sheltered terrace add an extra dimension to the architecture and living comfort.
An extensive restoration in 1990 added to the current eminent comfort. With respect for the Royal monumental appearance in combination with the rolling hilly NSW estate, Hoeve Bargsigt belongs to the pearls of the North-East Netherlands.
The layout consists of two wings: among others a royal hall with a stylish staircase that turns into a plateau with a dome and a hall to a large living room facing south, with a covered terrace and outside terrace, a very luxurious kitchen with a kitchen island and dining area, four spacious bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. A basement with, among others, a wine cellar, central heating cellar and washing cellar.
From the hall with mezzanine to the big dining room, master bedroom with extensive sanitation facilities, walk in closet, Turkish bath and a large balcony. Especially lovely lounge and library with fireplace and sheltered terrace facing south with storage for garden furniture. Very spacious attic storage with, among others, hobby space and office space.
Next to the romantic mansion Bargsigt is a large outbuilding for garden attributes and multiple cars.
The NSW estate consists of varied forests, ponds, walking paths and a tennis court with synthetic grass. Around the house is a “Hidden Garden” designed by Mien Ruys. In 1924 this was one of the first gardens she designed, and in 1990 she redeveloped the entire garden as one of her last projects.
