Fantastic, very spacious and characteristic former farmhouse, situated in one of the most beautiful locations in the Waterland Municipality, in a small and picture-perfect village, surrounded by water and pastures. Zuiderwoude is the oldest village in the Waterland municipality. There is a good public elementary school, a village community center for festivities and all kinds of clubs and associations, an idyllic little church, which, aside from religious services, also organizes concerts and exhibitions, and “Tea Garden ‘t Einde”. This idyllic location is only a 15 minute drive by car from downtown Amsterdam.
The former farmhouse has a total usable area of 340 m2 (3660 sq.ft.) and is located on a lovely, green plot of around 1.000 m2 (10,750 sq.ft., 0.25 acre), with beautiful and free views over the fields towards Amsterdam. The garden borders a small canal called Zwet, enabling canoeing or boating in summer and - when there is ice in winter - skating, straight from the back yard to lakes and canals in the wide surroundings.
Entrance, hall with separate toilet, 3 bedrooms on the front side with a bathroom including a walk-in shower, bath and double wash stand. In the rear is the spacious kitchen, equipped with all modern conveniences, and the living room with an impressively high ceiling, both connected to the spacious, south-west oriented terrace outside. In addition, there is a pantry with various convenient, built-in closets, figuring also as second entrance, and a library room containing the stairs to the second floor.
On the second floor there are an additional 3 bedrooms, a bathroom with walk-in shower, bath and double wash stand, a toilet and an enormous, multifunctional space in the middle. In addition, there is ample storage space on this floor.
This former farmhouse and location provide a truly unique experience of “country living”. Space, tranquility and nature in one of the four prettiest villages of the province North-Holland, a stone’s throw from Amsterdam.
