Luxury penthouse located on impressive estate amid the Lunteren woods
On the imposing Schothorst estate, in the middle of the woods of Lunteren, you will find the heritage-listed former convalescent home for Teachers dating back to the start of the last century. The convalescent home itself was built in the 1930s and in recent years has been redeveloped into apartments and a spacious penthouse. The penthouse has two roof terraces, one on each side of the apartment. It comes with access to a spacious double garage with two electrically operated overhead doors, and the possibility of owning an external office or studio space in the woods at the rear of the property. The studio space is for sale separately.
Penthouse The entry to the penthouse is grand, and a rarity in the Netherlands. The monumental front door opens into the special entrance hall with its monumental grand staircase. The high windows, ceilings and natural stone floor give this space a wonderfully serene atmosphere. You can ascend the broad staircase to the first floor, where the entrance to the penthouse is located. The penthouse has its own internal staircase and is also accessible by the elevator, which opens into your own hall. The staircase gives you access to the first spacious roof terrace on the garden side of the national monument.
On entering the penthouse, you will find a generously proportioned entrance hall. As you walk along the long, wide corridor, you will encounter various spaces on either side. This corridor is ideal for art lovers, providing sufficient space to display large artworks. This penthouse is also interesting from the point of view of security. Grand living, yet not ostentatiously so.
The sleeping quarters are to the left of the corridor, and the living room and a pleasant dining room to the right. The living room consists of a library and a seating area. There is a custom-made bookcase in the library, as well as a gas fireplace and all the facilities necessary for television. The adjacent cosy seating area has an open connection to the corridor. The living room has a fantastic view out over the estate’s handsomely landscaped park. The library part of the living room spills over into the eating area in the spacious open kitchen, which is once again connected to the end of the corridor. The modern and sleek kitchen with kitchen island has been built by hand and is equipped with all the luxury features you’d expect from a desirable penthouse. Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious second terrace (around 50 m2) with French doors and views towards the forest.
The three bedrooms are located in the corridor across from the living room. The master bedroom has its own stylish bathroom finished in high-quality materials, as well as a walk-in wardrobe. The second and third bedrooms both make use of the second bathroom which is located between them. There is a guest toilet in the corridor and a generously proportioned storage area with connections for a washing machine and dryer.
This penthouse features extremely high-quality finishing touches. For example, there is a custom-made wardrobe in the entrance hall, all of the floors are oak parquetry, and the walls are attractively finished. The windows are equipped with integrated sun protection operated by remote control, and there are awnings on the park side of the residence. The house is also equipped with an alarm system. Uniquely, this penthouse in this magnificent heritage-listed building has been awarded an energy label A. The whole residence has a pleasant and rich appearance, and great attention has been paid to the details when it comes to providing comfort and luxurious finishing touches.
It’s an ideal residence for the cosmopolitan, world citizen, art collector, or someone who simply enjoys gracious living. The spacious complex is located on a lane in the forest, in extremely quiet surroundings. The small, friendly centre of Lunteren is just a few minutes’ walk away.
