On one of the most beautiful spots of Rondehoep Polder, directly on the River Amstel, connected to Amsterdam and Vinkeveense Plassen: this farmhouse, newly built in 2005, with beautifully landscaped garden, several outbuildings, meadow with pond and orchard. A modern spacious house of approximately 550 sqm which is equipped with its own heat supply.
The house named “Kerkzicht” is located opposite the village of Nes aan de Amstel with view of the church, beautifully lit in the evening. At the foot of the dike there is a very characteristic orchard with classic standard fruit trees. On the paved inner courtyard there are parking spaces around a boxwood bordered bed. Around the house there is a wide border with large hydrangeas, fuchsias and trained trees, as well as the boxwood around the borders, characteristic of a rich farm. Behind the house there is a large lawn, adjacent to a meadow of more than 1.5 hectares with pond, guaranteeing unobstructed views over the beautiful polder. No power lines, no high-rise blocks in the distance. Only meadows, tranquillity and nature.
The farm has been architect-designed with an eye for its surroundings. The very large windows allow you to enjoy the beautiful countryside and exceptional views anywhere in the house.
The polder is a quiet area with in its centre a nature reserve for grassland and water birds. You really live in the midst of birds, hares, hedgehogs, salamanders and other animals, just at a short distance from Amstelveen, Amsterdam and Utrecht, with good connections to the motorways A2, A1 and A9.
Side entrance with stairwell, hallway and cloakroom.
Toilet and urinal with a view of the cars in the basement. Floor-to-ceiling tiled laundry room with connections for four washing machines and/or dryers. This space is also suitable as a dog kennel and has a large washing trough to wash them standing.
At the front a spacious bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and patio doors to the terrace (1). Very luxurious en-suite bathroom with freestanding bath with Jacuzzi, double walk-in shower with rain showers, vanity unit with integrated mirror-faced cupboard and two washbasins, toilet and urinal. The bathroom can be closed by a sliding door which disappears completely into the wall.
At the rear the bright and high living room with atrium and twelve Velux skylights, fireplace with granite shelf and a modern, very complete open kitchen (SieMatic) including a burned Bethel White granite worktop, three ovens, multiple sinks and a modern mantelpiece ? a real eye catcher. The spacious, lockable utility room has many connections for water and electricity. The entirely hideable sliding patio doors give access to the large side terrace (2). The central work/TV room with its own sliding doors is adjacent to this same terrace.
The rear facing the meadows is entirely in glass offering impressive and unobstructed views, with large double doors to a covered veranda with a large terrace (3).
Stairs lead to the mezzanine floor and a very spacious room at the front with four large dormer windows. These offer stunning views of the River Amstel or the church of Nes. This huge space can easily be remodelled into two or three rooms. Empty pipes for a bathroom are provided for. See the floorplans for several varieties.
High quality materials have been used throughout the house such as the stylish dark wood (oak and wenge). The entire ground floor as well as all the terraces have low-maintenance Twilight, burned basalt/granite flooring.
The house has been built for handicapped people: no thresholds inside or outside the house.
There are two outbuildings, one of stone with an attic and one of wood.
The former haystack is supported by piles and is currently a large terrace (4). It can be turned into a building of 9.5 x 9.5 m (license issued in 2005). There is also the possibility of creating a swimming pool. A landing stage can be realized on the River Amstel. From there the Vinkeveense Plassen are within reach via the nearby River Waver.
