Sotheby's International Realty - Wassenaar, ZH

WASSENAAR: Night falls, lights shine down from the houses and sounds of music and chats are tangible. Expats, CEOs, politicians, entrepreneurs, people who represent many business sectors are part of life in Wassenaar. The atmosphere is peaceful, something of the great outdoors has remained despite the proximity of the city. Spacious houses stand along wide lanes with tall trees and green gardens. The buzz of the city in a rural setting gives people the illusion of being 'outside' in this exclusive village on the outskirts of The Hague and in the heart of the Delta Metropolis. A house with a unique story, it’s own woodland, a swimming pool in the garden, a layout with fabulous sight lines across the grounds, a master bedroom with the feel of a luxury suite, the beach within easy reach and the three major cities all within a 30 minute drive. These are just a few of the ingredients which make this house in Wassenaar a dream home. Wassenaar is a unique village which consists of a village centre with a wooded area on the south side with villa’s and estates. A large number of these have traditionally been country seats, summer residences for wealthy city dwellers who early last century were already impressed by the luxury of the proximity to the beach as well as the easy accessibility. Besides the well-to-do, these villa’s and estates also house ambassadors and consulates, who, in part because of the many (international) schools and sports clubs and the excellent access, choose to live in the green and nature rich village of Wassenaar. Layout: The property is approached through an electrically operated entrance gate, onto a forecourt with plenty of parking space. The front door opens onto a central hallway with open gallery, a living room with a dining area, a kitchen/breakfast room with fireplace, a family room with fireplace, with access to the terraces and garden from all the rooms.
