Such a well-maintained and specious house so close to the center of Leiden is really something special. This fine family house from the 1930s has no fewer than 5 bedrooms and a sunny south-facing backyard with a spacious shed and back entrance. This corner house is located in a quiet street in the cozy Zeeheldenbuurt. In 2012, the house was equipped with a roof structure, which created an extra floor. In 2019, a new kitchen with cooking island and a second bedroom were installed on the 2nd floor. As a result, this house meets today’s living requirements.
Although the house has been completely renovated, the original details have been preserved. The stained glass is still in the panel doors, the ensuite doors and above the windows in the facades, downstairs the original decorative ceilings are still intact and the granite is also still on the floor in the hallway. In addition, the authentic marble fireplaces are still present in both the front and the back room. In short, definitely worth a visit!

Ground floor

Front door in vestibule with wardrobe and meter cupboard, hallway with stairs, stair cupboard and toilet. Both the front and the back room still have their own entrance door.
The living room is an en-suite livingroom with a beautiful wooden herringbone floor, with original marble fireplaces and the sliding doors with their stained glass windows. The back room has French doors to the south-facing backyard.
The kitchen is an open kitchen with a cooking island. The kitchen is only 2 years old and equipped with many built-in appliances: 5 burner gas hob, boiling water tap, dishwasher, extractor hood, two ovens, one of which is a combination microwave, fridge, freezer and plenty of cupboard space. From the kitchen there is a door to the backyard.

The backyard is located directly on the south, so there is sun in the garden from afternoon to late evening. The garden is nicely decorated and has a detached barn with back entrance. The exterior and barn have recently been completely repainted.

First floor

At the rear a luxurious bathroom with bath, separate shower, toilet and sink. In addition, a spacious bedroom with fitted wardrobes. At the front also a large bedroom with a built-in wardrobe and a marble fireplace. In addition, a smaller office.

Second floor

Via a staircase to the 2nd floor:
This floor, which was built in 2012, has very high ceilings (3.00 meters), beautiful wooden beamed, and 3 spacious dormer windows. The spacious landing adjoins 2 rooms and a bathroom. The bathroom has a shower, sink and urinal and the washing machine, dryer and central heating boiler are also located here. The master bedroom with a high dormer window is located at the rear and has storage space behind the knee bulkheads. At the front is a large bedroom also with a dormer window and with even more storage space behind the knee bulkheads. The beautiful beams of the roof are clearly visible in all rooms.
The landing is very light, because there is an extra wide dormer on the side.


The backyard is located directly on the south, so there is sun in the garden from afternoon to late evening. The garden is nicely decorated and has a detached barn with back entrance. The exterior and barn have recently been completely repainted.


This bright corner house is in a fantastic location! The shops, museums, terraces and the lively market in the historic center of Leiden are just a 5-minute bike ride away. In the neighborhood itself is a nice playground “Ons Eiland”, just across the bridge to the center is the recently renovated playground “De Doorbraak” and the Plantsoen is also within walking distance, as is the Singelpark.
