On the Baambrugse Zuwe we sell a breathtaking villa on the Vinkeveen lakes. The villa of 607m² (GLA 824 m²) living space is in more than perfect condition, and has no less than 14 spacious rooms including five bedrooms. The garden around the villa is adjacent to the Vinkeveen lakes and has a boathouse, outdoor kitchen, outdoor Jacuzzi and plunge pool. The large terrace jetty with stairs and diving board make swimming in this 'natural pool' very comfortable. Whatever the season: this unique residential location with peaceful views of the water, gives you a high degree of holiday feeling throughout the year! And that only 15 minutes drive to the Amsterdam Zuidas.
The thatched villa was completely renovated in 2012 with the highest quality materials and equipped with various luxury accessories and security equipment (16 cameras). The outside was painted in 2016. The materials in the house are all of excellent quality and almost everywhere custom made. Throughout the house there is underfloor heating, air conditioning, double glazing, superior sound from B&O sound system, intercom.
Through a small bridge over a ditch, the wooden fence opens automatically at a distance. The garden is immediately overwhelming on entry with ponds, antique Spanish lions on plinths, slate trees, olive trees in terracotta pots, green borders and tiling with cobblestones. No less than 200 piles support the paving.
The front door opens into the spacious hall with three-sided oak pivot doors designed by Piet Boon. The left door gives access to the kitchen. Even if you do this semi-professional kitchen too short: for lovers of cooking, this kitchen is a true Eldorado: a gigantic and professional cooking island without having a chilly appearance, houses a four-burner stove, a teppanyaki plate, a deep fryer, a grill and hot plate, 2 ovens, a steam oven, a subzero wine cooler, a fridge, a quooker tap, and a stone oven. Above the island is an integrated extractor ceiling. Most of the equipment is from Keukenhuys the Lower House, and from Miele.
The large kitchen area is separated from the dining area by a double-sided gas fireplace with glass walls. The fireplace itself is upholstered in leather which gives an extra warm appearance. The dining area consists of a curved custom-made leather sofa with leather chairs around an elegant oval dining table. This state of the art kitchen overlooks the garden. The floor has Belgian bluestone tiles of 1 by 1 meter.
The stairs lead down to the wine cellar and cozy dining room with fireplace. The wine cellar is very nice masonry with round vaults.
From the hall there is on the right the bright study with custom-made cupboards of oak, also by the hand of Piet Boon. The floor is also made of solid oak.
Through the middle door in the hall you come to the impressive entrance that is the heart of the villa. A robust wide oak staircase more or less fans out upwards and connects the entire upper floor. Thanks to a large skylight, the light flows in. At the bottom right of the staircase there is a cloakroom.
A fitness room has been created in the garage, but this can of course be given the function of an indoor garage.
On the garden side there is a wellness suite with a separate Finnish sauna and a hamam with mosaic. The wall of this room is partly covered with wood, partly with Portuguese azul. While you are resting, you can enjoy the view of the Vinkeveen lakes. From the sauna you can soak yourself in the cool barrel outside in the grass. Pure relaxation!
From the entrance you enter the very spacious living room where the third fireplace is located. Currently, this bright room decorated with a double seating area which gives the whole something warm and intimate. One wall is covered with slate. The cabinets are all custom made. The view of the beautiful lake area is obviously spectacular. The adjoining room is the children's playroom, but lends itself very well as a second study. Both rooms have large LED TV screens.
On the first floor are no less than five bedrooms and a spacious home theater. Everywhere there are lamps of the Dutch brand Brand Van Egmond.
The spacious master bedroom with very high ceiling, has that same spectacular view, there is also a lovely balcony. Imagine that you can wake up here daily... Thanks to the beam structure, the room breathes a cozy atmosphere.
The accompanying bathroom has a multi-person Jacuzzi. The two sinks are made of Italian granite with custom-made stainless steel taps. The mirrors with a frame of marsh oaks, have on the inside cupboard space. Cupboards are equipped with automatic lighting. The luxurious rain shower can accommodate two people and is located behind a composite wall.
From the bedroom you enter a double walk-in closet with a staircase to the attic.
On the right hand side there are two bedrooms with an intermediate bathroom with shower and toilet. There is a laundry room with various equipment, there is also a technical room with the boiler.
On the left are the two other spacious bedrooms with shared sanitary facilities (toilet, shower and bath) and the rooms each have a walk-in closet.
The sanitary facilities in the toilets on both floors, is by Philippe Starck for Duravit, the fountains are made of granite with custom-made stainless steel taps.
The boathouse is a pearl! This mini-farm made of wood with a thatched roof does not reveal its function until the doors open: a 1964 Riva lives here and, thanks to the fully electronic sliding door, you will be in the middle of the water within a few minutes. There is plenty of storage space for surfboards and everything that makes life on the water pleasant.
There is also a dog kennel, a large Jacuzzi in the garden and a tasteful outdoor kitchen with Boretti kitchen appliances. On the sunny terrace (one of the many terraces and seating areas) is a table with stone sheets that can accommodate 26 people.
Along a large part of the garden is a jetty of hardwood with a lovely waterfront terrace where you can enjoy life and everything it has to offer until late in the summer. In short: also this element lets you live here as God in Tuscany, southern Spain, France or anywhere else, except that this fantastic object is just around the corner from Amsterdam.
