Located in the heart of the Randstad conurbation, just a stone’s throw away from Aalsmeer and Schiphol airport and only 20 minutes by car from Amsterdam and Haarlem, this detached house stands on a plot of land that is large enough for acyivities like keeping horses or cultivating fruits and vegetables on a substantial scale. In addition to the ample amount of land, outbuildings make this property a very flexible one that offers the ultimate in home and income potential or simply a wonderful place to live.
The house is in need of modernisation. Building an entirely new house is an option. The plot, which includes a garden and is still partly agricultural, is classified as being for residential purposes. The roofs of the sheds contain asbestos (corrugated sheets) and the house is not connected to the natural gas network. There is a gas tank in the garden. The asbestos roofing must be removed by 2024. Subsidy schemes are available for this purpose (see www.rijksoverheid.nl/asbest).
Aalsmeerderbrug is one of the residential centres in the municipality of Haarlemmermeer. Traditionally, Aalsmeerderbrug’s closest ties have been with the municipality of Aalsmeer, which is on the other side of the bridge. Shops are only 10 minutes away by bicycle.
The current layout includes an entrance area, a bright living room, an upper room, a kitchen, a utility area, a shower facility and a large basement. There is a large shed behind the house. A buyer can reconfigure the layout of the house or demolish the house to make way for an entirely new building. The location offers tremendous scope to create a fantastic place to live.
The loft space, which covers the entire area of the house, was divided into a number of rooms over the years. The thin partition walls could easily be removed to reconfigure this space.
