Situated on one of the finest locations in the Tilburg-area, Villa Marienhof, designed by renowned architect J.W. Hanrath (Hilversum), lies on a 10,790m2 plot of land, tucked away in the beautiful landscape gardens which bear the clear signature of its creator, L.A. Springer (Haarlem). The ensemble consists of the historical villa, landscape gardens and tea house on a two hectare-wide plot. The complex is a national monument, a ‘Rijksmonument', registered under number 521024. The building of the house was assigned by Mr Jos Janssen in 1916, who was a wealthy textile-magnate at the time. Mr Charles Janssen, Mr Janssen's son, decided to bequeath the ownership of the house and premises to Staatsbosbeheer (Forest Committy of the Netherlands) in 1986. Staatsbosbeheer made the villa into its regional headquarters up until 1997, it has been rented out eversince. Staatsbosbeheer has now decided to dispose of ownership and this beautiful, freshly renovated historical complex is now up for sale. The gardens are undergoing a major overhaul at this moment.
The three-layered villa is topped with a hip-roof. The front façade is symmetrically set up and is three bays wide, the middle of which has a round arch portico containing the main entrance. Side windows depict sceneries of the textile industry. The villa has a rich interior. Marble floors, beautiful glazed tiles, rich pine wood panelling and staircases. The conservatory offers a breath-taking view of the driveway. The rooms each have their own character; whilst the living is cosy and warm, the reception room is stately and elegant and the children's play rooms is simpler, yet very dignified. The house is a perfect picture of its time. Although the house very much has its own character, the interior leaves plenty of room to really personalize it and even modern furniture goes well with this unique property. Elegant yet very much suited to be a family home. The asking price comprises the right to build and the existing property excluding land. In addition, a leasehold on the ground is applicable. The yearly rent is set at € 17 546 (10 year fixed) or € 23 834 (30 year fixed).
