Rijnsburgerweg 89, Leiden
FOR LOVERS OF A LARGE HOUSE, FILLED WITH LIGHT AND BOASTING MANY ORIGINAL DETAILS!
This semi-detached townhouse dating from 1904 has retained virtually all of its original features: stucco ceilings, panel doors, en-suite (on the first floor), tiled and granito floors. the high ceilings and large feature windows give the house a wonderfully open and light feel, which is reinforced by the deep front and rear gardens.
When you step out of the door you are within easy walking distance of Leiden's historic city centre and train station. With the car you can be on the arterial roads in no time, which means that Amsterdam, Schiphol, The Hague and Rotterdam are just a short drive away.
Schools, sportclubs, de Kaag and the beach: everything is within cycling distance!
Via the deep front garden you arrive at the broad front door. Stepping inside you find yourself in the hallway. And what a hallway! High and wide, with original granito floor and stucco ceiling. The original panel doors give access to the front room, rear room, kitchen and toilet.
The high, decorative stucco ceiling and the conservatory on the front of the house create a great deal of light. The rear room has retained virtually all its original features and is also extremely light due to the conservatory, with patio doors which open onto the rear garden. The en-suite on the first floor could be moved to the ground floor, thereby fully restoring the floor to its former glory. The front and rear rooms are finished throughout with a birchwood floor and the windows are fitted with insulating glass.
The large kitchen, which also has granito flooring, still has its original features with kitchen sink and mantelpiece. Besides these there is a modern kitchen with built-in apparatus.
Even the toilet still has its original granito floor and wall tiles. Just like the adjoining shower, which is currently set up to house a washing machine.
Via the attractively designed staircase with carved wooden supports you come to the spacious first floor landing. From here you have access to the front room, rear room, side room and bathroom.
This floor also features high ceilings with decorative stucco details, which make this space light as well. The large front and rear rooms are separated by an original en-suite and the rear room benefits from a large balcony which extends over the whole of the rear of the property.
Beside the rear room is the luxurious and modern bathroom with walk-in shower, towel radiator, bathroom furniture and under-floor heating. There is also a modern, separate toilet.
Yet another attractively designed, authentic staircase takes you to the second floor.
Arriving on the second floor you find yourself on the large, well-lit landing. From here you have access to three large bedrooms, a luxurious and modern second bathroom with bath, washbasin and a separate toilet. The varied form of the roof construction and the exposed beams lend this spacious attic floor an intimate atmosphere.
The garden can be accessed via the patio doors, the kitchen door, the path beside the house and the rear passageway. With its 15 metres of depth the garden offers great potential. A sun deck, trampoline, large garden shed, lawn: you can landscape it entirely to your liking.
