Sensational contemporary villa
In the middle of the beautiful hilly forest, this manor arises from the green like a contemporary castle, spectacular in all ways. Inspired by the environment and merged with nature, on a plot the size of 8 acres, the beautiful architecture at seven levels offers a completely unique atmosphere while making use of the most exclusive materials. Every area provides a view on nature, including the forest, the pond and the garden. Hulsker Architect Agency from Haarlem designed this very sizeable mansion in close collaboration with the client, with a content of approx. 8,150 m³. An enormous natural stone arcade, manufactured from the Israelian limestone 'Jerusalem Gold', marks the entrance. This natural stone has been processed into the villa in various ways, which ensures a perfect coalescence of house and nature.
Some reflections of comfort of uncompromising luxury include: integral apartment, lift, luxurious wellness, amazing home cinema, a convertible covered swimming pool and a home automation system.
Outside of the technology and amenities, this extraordinary home is the result of a decade of creating the ultimate dream home up to the smallest detail, resulting in a rare jewel of perfection. The half and whole level differences or multiple floors have been designed ingeniously to create a sense of space, also thanks to the stylish implementation of glass floor panels and open stairs, without compromising on intimacy.
