Surprisingly spacious family home in the heart of the sought after (child) friendly Leidsebuurt. Over the past 20 years this property has been lovingly extended, recently renovated tastefully decorated by current owners to create a very comfortable and spacious 4-bedroom family home with a super garden and rear shed (which could be fully insulated to create a work room). The foundations of this property have been renewed and both the inside and the outside of the property have been maintained to an excellent level.
The house is located very close to the International School Haarlem and public transport is ideal from this location: Haarlem station within a few minutes cycle, steps away to the new 'heart' of Haarlem – ‘Raaks’ with restaurants and bars and the stop Raaksbrug for the express buses to Amsterdam running every 5 minutes in the rush hour.
Entrance hall with toilet and double doors to kitchen/living room, renovated in (2017) with tiled floor and underfloor heating in both the kitchen and guest toilet. Kitchen with cooking island, 5-ring gas hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, built-in coffee machine and plenty of cupboard space. The window seat to the front of the house doubles as storage space. Living room with wooden floor and French doors leading to the large and sunny mainly terraced garden. The door to the rear access (alleyway) is located inside the large storage shed (offering a separate entrance should this be used as a workspace). Sliding door with leaded light from the living room leads to the staircase.
First floor: very large landing / hall leading to both bedrooms (front 4.45 x 3.21 and rear 3.67 x 2.21), the laundry closet and the modern bathroom (2020) with underfloor heating, walk-in shower, double wash basin and WC.
Second floor: one closed off bedroom and the second bedroom/study is open to the stairs (easy to add a hallway to enclose the second bedroom). Both with wide dormer windows.
Living area approx. 117 m2.
Ground area 144 m2.
Volume 396 m3.
Located in a quiet, (child) friendly street within a short walk from the city center.
Great location for public transport.
