Villa Kia Ora , Zonnelaan 15. Hilversum
In one of the most attractive Dutch residential areas, the Boomberg district of Hilversum, we offer for sale this beautiful, very spacious, detached villa (a 413m2 living area!) with a lovely garden. The villa 'Kia Ora' was built in 1919-1920 after a design of the architects De Groot and Van Laren. This villa is very characteristic, designated as village monument, and also protected as an integral part of the village heritage.
The villa is situated on a plot of more than 900m2 with a front, side and back garden as well as a driveway with carport and garage. In the house many style features have been carefully preserved such as Art Deco façade lamps, fireplaces, panel doors, stained glass, authentic tiled floors, beamed ceilings, shutters, beautiful windows with 'Belgian glass', etc.
In total there are 9 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, making it spacious enough to combine living and working. The neighbourhood is characterized by beautiful villas and lots of green. So you can live here very peacefully. A stone's throw away you will find the pedestrian park of Peerlkamplaan, which leads to an entrance of the beautiful forests, Corversbos & Gooilust. In addition, the Pinetum and the Botanical Garden are part of the neighbourhood. There are also various schools in the vicinity, including the excellent international primary and secondary school. The center of Hilversum with its many facilities and the renewed Intercity train station are within walking distance. Within 20-30 minutes you can reach the centre of Amsterdam, Utrecht or Schiphol Airport by car or train!
People who are interested are cordially invited to make an appointment for a viewing. You will be surprised by the many possibilities, the space, the atmosphere and the many style features. Because the villa only fully comes into its own during a viewing, a short description suffices.
