FOR A QUICK FIRST IMPRESSION, WATCH THE CATO TV VIDEO!

The current owners are taking a logical step in their housing career: downsizing now that their three sons have left the house and they have concluded their professional lives. With a heavy heart, they are giving their luxury domain to another family.

They had the villa built together in 1984 and then adapted it in 2000 to their personal preferences: "We had our children here, and now it's getting very big. It's been beautiful. We've had a very pleasant time here for almost 40 years, still enjoying especially the south-facing garden, the indoor swimming pool with lounge, our walks along the sound barrier, and also the spacious kitchen, the central heart of the house.

In 2000, we extended the kitchen and realized the basement with an indoor swimming pool, lounge bar, and sunken terrace with steps leading to the backyard. This way, we could preserve the garden to the fullest. Around that time, the sound barrier was also constructed, and we were able to have the entire exterior taken care of by the renowned garden architect Fons Linders. In 2014, the villa was completely restyled under the guidance of an interior architect. Now it's truly top-notch: we're completely free, especially downstairs, nobody hears or sees us, and yet we live close to the city and near the schools. In other words, complete freedom, 100% privacy, and optimal daylight in the villa."

5 ASSETS OF THIS LUXURIOUS, BASEMENTED VILLA WITH HEAT PUMP (2022), DOUBLE INDOOR GARAGE, INDOOR SWIMMING POOL, LOUNGE WITH BAR, AND MAGNIFICENT SURROUNDING GARDEN

1. Low energy consumption.
The complete central heating system with heat pump, boiler, top cooling, and thermostat were completely replaced in 2022 and executed in such a way that gas-free consumption is possible in a straightforward manner. Additionally, the released heat from the air drying of the swimming pool area is reused for heating the pool water.

2. Excellent location
Located on the edge of the Koudenhoven villa district, in a street with only local traffic within walking distance of Eckart forest, close to primary and secondary schools, and approximately 10 minutes by bike from the city center with the railway station.

3. Surprising.
Somewhat modest and closed at the front, surprisingly large and open on the inside and the rear; spacious rooms for the whole family with no less than six bedrooms, TV room, living kitchen with utility room, wellness area with sauna, two bathrooms, and basement with indoor swimming pool and lounge bar.

4. Luxury and comfort.
Over the years, the villa, under the guidance of an interior architect, has become a comfortable and spacious entity of this current time. The Bose Dolby system is integrated into the complete Sonos system throughout the villa. There are also three built-in smart TVs, if desired, the visuals and sounds remain.

5. Feeling of freedom.
With many large windows across the full width of the villa, spacious views of the magnificently landscaped garden by Fons Linders, as well as the sunken patio terrace, both located almost to the south with a grand feeling of freedom, space, and 100% privacy.

GROUND FLOOR - LIVING WING

The spacious entrance hall has a double and concealed front door with videophone, so there is no view from the street. On the left are the doors to the living kitchen and the double garage, with the cloakroom next to it, meter cupboard, and guest toilet. There is a ceiling-height tilt-and-turn window overlooking the beautifully landscaped front garden with compass paving.

From the hall, the villa literally opens up from the center towards the sun and the south-facing backyard, through double glass interior doors with frosted decorative border to the living room. The entire living area has an Italian marble tile floor in classic Botticino, laid by Mario Galante Natuursteen, and is equipped with underfloor heating.

The living room has a dining area that is somewhat separated from the sitting area and adjoining TV room by two niches for art with spotlights. The whole is equipped with three double patio doors to the sun terrace with canopy.

The open tunnel fireplace has a view from the sitting room to the lower-level TV room, which also has double patio doors. This lower room is equipped with a large TV screen and Dolby surround Bose system.

On the left side of the entrance hall is the spacious and particularly bright kitchen located, which thanks to the ceiling-high windows and doors on the right at the stairs to the swimming pool level, gives a lot of daylight and garden view. The Forma kitchen with Gaggenau appliances is partly original and partly extended. The kitchen area is partly equipped with an Italian marble tile floor in classic Botticino and partly with an oiled Burgundian oak parquet floor. The professional and ergonomic cooking area consists of a ceramic hob and a built-in Gaggeau fryer, grill, and steamer. The slanted worktop at the 1.5 sink with professional tap and Quooker is entirely made of solid end-grain butcher block. Within reach are two large built-in refrigerators (Gaggenau and Siemens) and two self-cleaning combi ovens (Siemens). There is a double exhaust system with four metal filters (Gaggenau).

Next is the utility room with inaudible and invisible equipment: dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, and freezer. The countertop can quickly accommodate all dishes out of sight. Glass blocks are incorporated at the top of the side wall for extra daylight. From here, there is an access door with a descending staircase to a cozy and optimal wine cellar as well as access to the double indoor garage.


GROUND FLOOR - OFFICE/ BEDROOM WING

The right-wing of the villa has two bedrooms/workrooms and a complete bathroom at the front. In the corridor leading to them, high custom-built closets are invisibly integrated into the sloping wall, next to the view to the TV room. Right next to it is bathroom 1, which is currently used as a guest suite on the ground floor together with bedroom 1. The marble and original bathroom is fully equipped with a double washbasin, hanging toilet, bidet, shower cabin, and double bathtub.

The large and bright guest room (bedroom 1) has three large windows facing the front garden. Bedroom 2 also enjoys a pleasant view of the front garden and is particularly suitable as a (home) workspace thanks to the built-in custom-made closet wall. Here is also the mailbox.


FIRST FLOOR

From the spacious entrance hall, the sleek, semi-open design staircase with child safety gate leads to the large and bright landing with dormer windows and dimmable ceiling spots. The staircase is surrounded by a custom-made wooden balustrade with glass.

The entire left wing is the parental domain. The spacious bedroom 3 has its own dressing room behind the custom-made Sucupira wooden room divider with TV and mirror. The drawers are optimally adapted to the depth of the sloping roof and offer plenty of storage space. In addition to the dressing area, there is also the walk-in wardrobe, where the sloping roof is efficiently used for ample storage space. Extra handy: there are USB connection points at the door for charging devices so they don't have to be next to the bed.

On the left side of the bed is an invisible door to the spacious attic above the kitchen extension, so that the space under the sloping roof is optimally utilized here as well. At the spacious and bright landing, there are three more spacious bedrooms, each with a large dormer window, and a separate toilet.

Right at the end of the landing is bathroom 2 located. Here, a double washbasin and a shower cabin (restyled in 2014) are located on either side of the dormer window. The wall unit has soft-close drawers with built-in sockets, laundry baskets, and a Corian top, while the mirror contains LED lighting. The second door in this bathroom leads to the wellness and sports area.

This fully-fledged and multifunctional wellness and relaxation area has two large skylights and storage space under the sloping roof. In the corner near the door, the double Whirlpool bath is installed. Next to it is a spacious linen closet.

The corner is entirely dedicated to the spacious four-person wooden Finnish sauna with electric heater. A solarium is installed in the ceiling, with a combination of infrared and UV lamps.

On the other side of this spacious room, with easy space for various home sports equipment, there is another substantial storage and technical room that is beautifully concealed behind louvred doors. Here, the boiler with heat exchangers is installed (2022).

Also, here is the climate system that controls the entire villa. The system dries and cools the indoor air without noticeable airflows. An anti-static filter can be additionally mounted in it (ideal for residents/guests with allergies), while fragrance substances can also be added to the heating air.


BASEMENT WITH INDOOR SWIMMING POOL, LOUNGE WITH BAR, AND SUNKEN TERRACE

The oak staircase from the living kitchen leads to the lounge floor, a relaxation area with a cozy living room feeling, a spacious indoor swimming pool, a lounge area with bar, and a 100% private sunken patio terrace.

In the staircase hall is the control panel for indoor and outdoor lighting, the fountains, the sun awning in the patio, and the pool installations, with the meter cupboard behind it. The safely lockable glass door leads to the spacious indoor swimming pool with jet stream, underwater lighting, walk-in staircase, robot cleaner, and insulating and automatic cover.

The pool, with dimensions of approximately 8.00 x 4.00 x 1.50 m, hardly needs chlorine because it is equipped with an ionizer. The entire space itself is equipped with a dehumidifying climate system with powerful adjustable ventilation, for a pleasant indoor climate. The entire ceiling is equipped with acoustic and fire-resistant material.

All equipment is neatly installed in the technical room behind the pool. Opposite is a separate toilet with a Corian sink top, a towel cupboard, and a spacious dressing room with walk-in shower.

Also, the computer-controlled Hunter group irrigation system for the garden is installed here, as well as the pool ionizer, shower boiler, pool robot, and underfloor heating. The dehumidifier for the space has heat recovery that is delivered to the pool, which, due to its underground location, already requires little heating.

A clever and beautiful roof dome has been made above the pool, for extra daylight and height. Above in the garden, this dome is set in a sedum-covered 'roof', which seamlessly connects to the terrace and garden.

Between the pool and the living room with bar is a spacious lounge area with seating area and built-in TV. The corner of the room is equipped with two accordion sliding doors, for plenty of daylight and direct access to the sunken terrace with a hundred percent privacy.

Via the beautiful and illuminated stairs, flanked by castle-like walls in Cotswold limestone with two symmetrical ponds with lion's head fountains, the garden above is easily accessible. The spacious and sunken terrace has stainless steel drainage gutters and catches no wind or noise at all. The 'castle walls' are covered with various hanging plants and are green in summer.

Next to the sunken terrace is a spacious and luxurious bar with a robust and knotty oak floor, cocktail table, tropical hardwood countertop with sink, programmable LED lighting, stock and glass cabinets, refrigerator, and wine cooler.


INDOOR DOUBLE GARAGE, CARPORT & BIKE SHED

The wide driveway leads left to the illuminated carport, behind the double, lockable gate. Behind the spacious carport is another illuminated bike shed and storage for garden machinery.

Straight ahead is the double indoor garage with electric Hormann tilt door. The light and indoor garage have windows on both sides, a door to the entrance hall, to the utility room, and an external door to the carport. The underfloor heating system is also installed here. There is space for two cars plus a closet wall. On the driveway itself, three to four cars can park.

SURROUNDING GARDEN AND OUTDOOR SPACE

The entire outdoor space is stylishly and classically designed by garden architect Fons Linders (design drawings including planting schedule are available).

The planting is particularly varied in height, width, flowering, and color, with classic boxwood and beech hedges and numerous mature deciduous and coniferous trees. The eye-catcher at the front at the entrance platform is the wind rose executed in Belgian bluestone with LED ground lighting around the plane tree with protective railing.

At the rear, the sound barrier is optimally integrated into the outdoor space, with low-maintenance ground cover, mature trees, tropical hardwood stairs, walkways above and halfway up the slope, an ecological branch wall along the fence, and even a long slide on the slope with artificial turf landing at the bottom. The green whole is popular with useful insects, many birds, squirrels, and hedgehogs.

With French-like castle walls and two water features with lion head wall fountains, the illuminated stairs with intermediate platforms and the basement terrace are stylishly integrated into the outdoor space.

Especially in the summer, the beautifully masonry walls attract attention, thanks to the varied hanging vegetation and the fragrant yellow roses on stem. The gold-colored Cotswold limestone in walls and paving creates a summery, Mediterranean atmosphere.

Just before this sunken area near the patio doors of the living room, there is a spacious seating and dining terrace with complete privacy and an aluminum canopy with an electric louvre roof with lighting and power outlets.

To the left of it is the sedum roof that seamlessly covers the swimming pool floor, with the beautiful hexagonal skylight with windows in the middle. Pergolas with mature climbing plants provide green height to the left and right. Beautiful bins form the kitchen herb garden near and around the main terrace.
