This inviting villa, designed in the style of the Bossche School and surrounded by water and small-scale marinas, is located at Uiterweg 181 in Aalsmeer, in an area formerly dominated by farms. Schiphol is just a stone’s throw away, and Amsterdam and The Hague are within easy reach as well. The architecture firm “De Twee Snoeken”, based in Den Bosch, designed this remarkable house, complete with garage, in the 1970s. The villa has floor space of 309 square metres, a volume of 1,377 cubic metres and is located on a plot of more than 4,000 square metres. Its serene patio, designed by the renowned landscape architect Mien Ruys, and its garden offer an oasis of tranquillity, while the grass is simple to maintain with the aid of a robotic lawnmower. The house is situated by the water’s edge: you can travel by boat to the Kleine Poel, one of the Westeinderplassen lakes, where you can enjoy water sports to your heart’s content.
