Surrounded by meadows, lies the monumental long-house farm dating back to the 17th century. This green oasis of peace is just a 15-minute trip away from Amsterdam’s Zuidas and the centre of Utrecht. On the outer edge of this area, you’ll find the little village of Nieuwer ter Aa. What used to be peatland has now become a popular place to live, because of the space, the tranquility and the charming rural surroundings. Perfectly quiet and serene, whilst situated in the busy heart of the country. This is a great place to live and enjoy the tranquility, space and water, or to explore the natural surroundings and find your inner athlete. Why not take the bike through the green heart, the woods around Utrecht and de Haar, which remain wonderful the whole year round. Even closer to home, you can find the OCL golf course, which is just a short drive away. It’s no surprise that the Nieuwer ter Aa area is so popular amongst families: Live in clover, but in the middle of the Randstad’s green heart.
The building consists of a characteristic farmhouse, smartly converted into a house and a separate barn. The ground floor is made up of an extended entrance with passage to the entrance hall, which provides access to the toilet and the staircase leading to the first floor of the old front house. The scullery is on the left-hand side of the building. Walking through the entrance hall will lead you to a door that grants access to the other parts of the farmhouse. On the left side of the hallway, you will find the old front house with a warm library and a large semi-raised room that runs across the full width of the house. To the right of the entrance hall lies the old part of the farmhouse. A large kitchen diner with all the facilities you need to make cooking a true pleasure. A door in the kitchen opens into the warm, large living room with French doors to the spacious terrace at the back of the building. The old wooden pillars are a great reminder of the cattle that used to reside here. The loft gives this living room a distinctively warm character, a nice place to lounge in summertime and to warm yourself next to the large fireplace during the winter. There are two stairwells that provide access to the first floor. The stairwell in the main entrance leads to the first floor of the old front house. A corridor then leads to the (guest) rooms. The first bedroom stretches across the full width of the front house, with the second bedroom situated next to the corridor. This space is well-lit due to the dormer window installed in the room. The bathroom is located at the end of the corridor, featuring a generous bath tub, double sinks and a toilet. The second staircase is in the hallway between the kitchen and the living room. As you climb the stairs, you will first reach a balcony with a view on the loft in the living room. The fitted wardrobes ensure there is ample storage. The stairwell then leads to the light master bedroom, featuring a large dormer window. The large bathroom is next, equipped with a bath, double sinks, a shower and toilet. The living room and kitchen are separated by a second entrance hall with stairs to the first floor and two storage rooms. Behind the semi-raised room at the front of the farmhouse, there is a large basement. This is an attractive, large and above all dry area measuring approximately 30 m2, which could serve particularly well as an office or bedroom.
The large barn is next to the farm, which has a large studio at the front. The studio has a separate toilet and features a staircase that leads to the attic. The side of the barn is fitted with large French doors. The barn has its own central heating system, which is housed in a separate room. The barn is ideally suited to store your lawn mower or gardening tools, to keep horses or to park a classic car. The plot is surrounded by ditches, which means full privacy is guaranteed. The woodland garden is hemmed in by old fruit trees and features an old orangery.
