The farmhouse was built in 1937, and was original used as the cow stable and the wagon barn. From 1970 it served as the visitor and education center for Natuurmonumenten nature society. The property has been used as a residence by the current owner since 1994. The land is owned by Natuurmonumenten, and purchase of this property comes with the obligation to pay an annual ground lease.
Ground floor: central entrance, large hall with the meter cupboard, coat area and restroom. Bathroom fitted with a bath, separate shower, sink, toilet and the fittings for the laundry machine. To the left is the immense and charming kitchen/lounge with exposed ceiling beams and paned windows, offering a view of the lush surroundings. The kitchen is fitted with a 5-burner gas hob, range hood, dishwasher, microwave, oven and a free-standing refrigerator. There is a cozy bar, ample storage space and a cupboard with the central heating kettle (Nefit Topline). The kitchen leads to a spacious dining room/ study with French doors to the large patio and the garden.
The largest part of the house is to the right of the central entrance. The extraordinary living room used to be the cow stable, and its history seeps through in the beams that have been preserved. The former manure wells are now used as heating ducts. The living room boasts many windows, access to the patio and a delightful wood-burning stove/fireplace. The ceiling has partly been left open, lending the room an airy and spacious feel.
The living room leads to a large space that is currently used as a private practice, which has its own entrance. The ceiling has also been left partially open here, creating a lot of space and a mezzanine. The private practice has its own small kitchen unit with a cooker and a refrigerator. Ideal if you're looking to create a home office or a private practice! However, this area can also be divided to create several (bed)rooms.
Behind the practice space, this property harbors yet another complete living unit, again with a private entrance. This unit accommodates a dining/living room, kitchen, bathroom with a shower, sink, toilet and fittings for the laundry machine, meter cupboard and a large utility room with the central heating system (Remeha Tzerra). Several doors open to the secluded patio and side garden.
The first floor of the 'main house' accommodates a large ‘walk through closet’ with wardrobes to both sides, a study, two bedrooms, a bathroom with a shower, vanity and toilet and an exceptional amount of storage space. The mezzanines are perfect play and storage areas, and offer a quirky view of the living room.
This exquisite plot spans a generous 1,360 m2 and the garden wraps around the house, which ensures that you can always find a place in the sun or shade to sit back and relax. The sheer size of the grounds, the privacy and the unique location in Corversbos make this the perfect place to unwind after a busy day - just pick a spot in the sun on one of the patios or if the weather is a little chilly, settle in on the veranda. The most beautiful hiking and cycling trails in the area start right on your doorstep!!
