Well maintained, wonderfully light in-between house from 1933 in old Oegstgeest (Oranjepark), with en-suite room, 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms a mountain loft and a sunny garden with a back entrance. The house is located on a quiet street in an area designated by the municipality of Oegstgeest as a protected village view, within waling distance of the Lange Voort shopping center and the weekly market. The ideal central location in Oegstgeest ensures that, in addition to the shopping center, the various schools and sports clubs are all nearby. The exit road to the A44 (to The Hague and Amsterdam) is also easily accessible. Through the back you can walk straight to the Bos van Wijckerslooth to take a quick breath of green. From this house it’s easy to cycle to the central station or center of Leiden, while cycling the other way is a wonderful trip to the beach or the bulb fields.
You reach the front door through the south-facing front garden. This gives access to the vestibule with wardrobe and meter cupboard. Through the draft door you enter the hallway with the toilet and a recessed stair cupboard. The walls in the vestibule, the corridor and the stairs have the original concrete enamel with decorative edge.
There are 2 more doors to the living room, which is divided into a sitting area and a room with a dining table due to the original room-en-suite layout. The sitting area at the front has a bay window, the dining area at the rear has patio doors to the backyard.
In line with the hallway is the kitchen, equipped with various equipment. What is particularly striking is the beautiful original granito floor that extends from the front door, through the vestibule and the hallway, all the way through the kitchen to the rear. This floor was repaired by a professional in 1994. The windows on the ground floor (kitchen and living room) have double glazing.
There is a separate toilet room on the landing. At the front of the house is a small and a large bedroom, both used as an office and equipped with double glazing, not to be confused with double glazing. There are actually 2 separate windows here, so that the blinds fit neatly in between.
At the rear is the master bedroom with its own sink and double doors to the balcony over the entire width of the house. This room contains two large wardrobes under the stairs to the 2nd floor. In addition, also al the rear, is the bathroom with a bath in which to shower, a double sink and a towel radiator.
The stairs to the 2nd floor are located in the middle of the landing between the rooms at the front and rear. This staircase can be closed with a door.
Over the entire front is a bedroom with a dormer window and a velux skylight. At the rear are two bedrooms (one of which is used as an office), both under the dormer window, which is completely in style with the house. All windows on the 2nd floor are double glazed.
At the end of the landing is a bathroom with a shower and sink. In addition, there is space for the washing machine and dryer.
From this landing is a fixed staircase to the attic.
This had headroom and 2 skylights with double glazing. Here hangs the (new) central heating boiler and there is almost too much space to store things that are not needed that often.
The green backyard is on the north, but due to its depth (13 meters) and the little high plants around, the garden is very sunny. The garden has two terraces, a wooden shed at the back of the garden and a back entrance that leads to both the Anna van Burenlaan and the Lousise de Colignylaan.
The house has been renovated several times by the current owner. The first time was with the purchase in 1994, when the plumbing on the ground floor was completely replaced, the walls were plastered again and the bathroom and a kitchen were installed. The original granito in the vestibule, corridor and kitchen was so good that it only needed to be restored at a few edges. This has been done very skillfully and actually invisible.
The house was renovated again in 2006, this time the 2nd floor has been rearranged with a large bedroom over the entire front and at the rear 2 bedrooms with new dormer windows (actually one large dormer window). A 2nd bathroom with shower and sink has been created on the landing and space for the washing machine and dryer also been created. There is a fixed staircase to the attic (with headroom!).
The most recent renovation took place in 2009/2010 and the ground floor was taken care of again. The chimneys in the front and back room have been removed. The original en-suite sliding doors with transparent glass have been replace. Removing the chimney created extra space to make a fourth cupboard around the en-suite and therefore it is now completely balanced on both sides. The sealings in the hallway and on the landing on the 1st floor have also been replace, a new kitchen has been installed and new (Bruynzeel herringbone) parquet has been laid in the living room.
