Van Oldenbarneveltstraat 52, Leiden
A strikingly spacious and perfectly maintained characteristic corner mansion on a prime location
This stately mansion on the corner offers very attractive and distinctive features, such as:
- A living area of no less than 216 m2. Much larger than most of the 1930s houses in Oegstgeest and Leiden. On all floors and in every room you feel these extra meters, also in height.
- A perfectly successful combination of character and living comfort. During a total renovation of the mansion in 2008, the many characteristic elements were retained while much money was spent on and attention paid to the living comfort. For example, the mansion is completely double glazed, the storey floors are insulated, all technical installations have been replaced and the mansion is well secured.
- An excellent location between Leiden and Oegstgeest. The beautiful park De Leidse Hout (18.5 ha.) is nearby, and the charming shopping area "De Kempenaerstraat" in the centre of Oegstgeest is to be found on a stone's throw. The mansion is located at few minutes cycling distance from (international) schools, the Oegstgeester Hockey club LOHC and tennis club OLTC, the LUMC and the Alrijne hospital, the Bio Science Park, the University of Leiden, and within 5 minutes by bike you can reach Leiden Central Station and the historical centre of Leiden. The coast and Kagerplassen are also within cycling distance. There are several highways nearby, like the A44 and the A4. By car it is only 20 minutes to The Hague and Schiphol and 30 minutes to the circular road around Amsterdam.
Layout: entrance portal, spacious hall, sunken cupboard, modern toilet with little sink. At the rear you will find a modern open kitchen and a spacious dining room with patio doors to the garden. The kitchen is, of course, equipped with all common appliances and offers plenty of storage space. The cosy and bright dining room is equipped with a fireplace and a beautiful wood stove.
The dining room and living room are separated by an original en-suite partition with sliding doors and closets. The living room has a light bay window with beautiful stained-glass windows and a wood-burning fireplace. Adjacent to the living room is the TV (or play) room. The dining, living and TV rooms are all equipped with oak parquet flooring. The high ceilings with ornaments, the panel doors, the en-suite sliding doors, the granite floors and the many original stained-glass window details contribute to the characteristic appearance.
