You will find it all at this very central yet quiet location in the centre of Roermond, a stone's throw away from the River Ruhr. Around 1890 the rich Willem Mallmann (later manufacturer of synthetic perfumes) commissioned the construction of a characteristic villa in the so-called eclectic style. In the facades on the outside you can see the (French) classicistic form language. Many beautiful and original details from the late nineteenth and early twentieth century have been preserved in the villa. You will be amazed by the rich detailing, including marble floors, oak staircases, richly set up decorative ceilings, beautiful doorframes and French doors with largely original hinges and locks.
Around 1912 the villa was purchased by the sisters of "Our Lady of Retreat" from Eijsden. At that time, the narrower connecting piece (the connection between the villa and the north-western wing) was realized. The villa was converted into a retreat home where visitors could find peace and escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The rooms in front of the villa served as a chapel. The veranda and the conservatory, which were also built in 1912, formed the transition between inside and outside.
An interesting fact is that, from a historical point of view, the creation of the "Kapellerlaan" is inextricably linked to the fifteenth-century place of pilgrimage, Kapel in 't Zand (situated more than 800 metres away). In ancient times a pilgrimage route, at the end of the nineteenth century for the construction of "Villa Mallmann", the Kapellerlaan became a popular walking route. The beautiful plane trees that currently flank the avenue emphasize the grandeur that has traditionally been connected to this location.
On the south side of this stylish building is the stairs to the first floor. Characteristic folding hardwood doors give access to the impressive reception hall (± 40 m2) which cuts through the floor of more than 250m2 like an axis. The stained glass window above the entrance, the marble floors, the ornamental ceilings, the oak staircase and the richly decorated door frames with panel doors, so called French doors, create an unparalleled atmosphere.
At the front and rear are several large rooms with high windows with stylish rod distribution and original ornamental ceilings; pure class that fits in with the ambiance of the building.
The rooms on the first floor and the first floor can be divided in various ways, depending on the destination they will be given. Taking into account the building's historical values, various options can be realised (see drawings options 1 to 3).
To the left of the entrance on the inside, an optional lift can be realised to facilitate the accessibility of the upper floor.
The front side ground floor:
On the right hand side of the entrance, double French doors give access to a spacious space (in total ± 110 m2) that extends over the entire front of the house, including the connecting connecting piece (towards the right hand wing).
At the front of this salon, there is a conservatory that is more than generously lit with its 8 oblong windows with top windows.
From the salon there is an en suite connection to the intermediate part at the middle/right side of the facade. This space is also accessible from the hallway through double doors and is ideal to serve as a dining room.
The distribution with destination (open or (semi) closed) kitchen, utility room and laundry / drying room is fluent in the sense that you can assign more or less space to a user function according to your wishes. For example, you can choose to place the kitchen partly or entirely in the connecting connector or to fully integrate the kitchen into the living area as an open-plan kitchen with a cooking island, thereby considerably increasing the surface area for the utility room and the washroom/drying room.
Various options give you the opportunity to optimally arrange and use the spaces tailored to your own living needs.A combined application of toilet and cloakroom (total ± 11 m2) can be found at the end of the monumental hall.
