Magnificent, elegant yet still warm and cozy family home with lovely garden in the center of Haarlem! This corner town house with 6 bedrooms, 2 living rooms and 2 bathrooms is located in the sought after Koninnebuurt/Bosch en Vaart neighborhood. The city woods (Haarlemmerhout) and parks are just a few minutes’ walk away and some of the best schools in Haarlem (including the various locations of the International Schools in Haarlem) – all within a 10 minutes cycle. One of the best features of this neighborhood are the quiet, family friendly streets and gardens which makes it hard to believe you are just a few minutes’ walk from the town center and the main roads into and out of Haarlem. The main bus terminus (Tempeliersstraat) offers connections, via the fast buses to various locations in Amsterdam (every 4 minutes in the rush hour), the short distance to Haarlem train station added to the close proximity to the main roads make the commute to Amsterdam, Schiphol, Schiphol-Rijk, The Hague and Rotterdam very convenient. The beautiful beaches of Bloemendaal and Zandvoort are easily accessible by bike (25 minutes).
This lovely property offers 6 ample bedrooms, a modern family kitchen/dining room with open fire, a cosy living room to the front of the house and a second living room, also suitable to use as a large office or chill room for the children.
