FORMER BAKERY WITH LARGE RESIDENCE FOR SALE
At an intersection of four charming streets in the beautiful village of Amerongen, we offer this splendid listed detached villa. The front of the house, which used to be the baker’s shop and residence, is a nationally listed building while the back of the house, once the bakery, is a municipal monument. The two premises have been connected by a splendid reception hall between the front and back of the house to create a wonderful and large residence that offers endless options to combine living and working from home. The house radiates an authentic atmosphere with original sash windows, high ceilings with beams, and beautiful panelled doors. All the rooms are extremely large. The living room features a stunning fireplace, the cosy kitchen-diner has direct access to the garden, and all four bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. The front part (the old baker’s shop) was until recently used as an interior design shop, but it is also perfect as a retail/office/practice space, as a self-contained annex, or as additional living space. The magnificently landscaped village garden lets you enjoy everything this wonderful place has to offer in peace and privacy.
The building dates back to around 1880 and, throughout the years, it has been entirely modernised and given all mod cons with a close eye on details. To the side of the residence, there are a double carport with parking space for 2 cars and a wooden shed. Underneath the house, the old vaulted cellars still exist but they are not accessible in the current situation. A primary school and the shops of Amerongen are within walking distance. All the other amenities the village offers and, of course, the woods of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug National Park are also nearby.
The original entrance to the retail/practice space is at the front of the front house. The current main entrance can be found on the right. First, you enter the spacious hall that connects the front and back of the house and which also gives a peek of the beautiful garden. The entrance hall gives access to all the rooms on this floor, from the spacious living room in the back to the kitchen-diner and retail area at the front. The hall, living room and kitchen all have the same beautiful old, glazed floor tiles. All walls are smoothly stuccoed and painted in warm (Farrow and Ball) colours. The entrance hall also includes two built-in wardrobes, one of which is used as a cloakroom.
LIVING ROOM (back of the house)
The wonderfully light and airy living room is at the right of the entrance hall. This room is more or less square with a surface area of over 50 m2 and has comfortable underfloor heating. The stunning old fireplace offers additional warmth and a cosy atmosphere. A door from the living room leads directly into the back garden.
UPPER FLOOR (back of the house)
The upper floor at the back of the house can be accessed by an open staircase in the living room. This floor is one big open space. There are several bespoke built-in wardrobes offering lots of storage space. Some of the original old doors were used for one of the wardrobes. This is a wonderful, bright room for sleeping, working, or relaxing. Adjacent, you will find a bathroom featuring a bath, a shower, a washbasin, and a separate toilet. An additional storage attic above this floor can be accessed via a hatch.
From the entrance hall, you turn left to enter the fabulous, large kitchen-diner of approx. 25 m2. The bespoke kitchen (by Lodder) includes a long kitchen unit with a stunning Belgian hardstone worktop. Naturally, the kitchen includes all kinds of built-in appliances like a 5-burner hob, a combi-oven and plate warmer, a dishwasher, and a Quooker. A cove offers space for the fridge and includes an additional built-in cupboard. From the kitchen, French doors give access to the picturesque back garden.
RETAIL/PRACTICE SPACE (front of the house)
From the entrance on the left, a long corridor leads to the front of the house. The two rooms looking out onto the street were once used as the baker’s shop and, until recently, as an interior design shop. These rooms can also be perfectly used for other purposes, such as an office or practice space, as an additional sitting room, or as a library, for example. These rooms are the front of this village villa and they still contain the original sash windows with shutters. They have their own entrance and the rooms can be closed off from the rest of the house.
At the back of these two rooms, there is a practical utility room of approx. 9 m2. The utility room also has space for the washing machine and dryer, and it gives access to a cellar of approx. m2 with sufficient headroom.
UPPER LEVEL (front of the house)
Next to the entrance hall, there is a corridor with a second hall to the left. Here you will find the wide staircase leading to the upper floor of the front house. This floor has two spacious and comfortably finished bedrooms (approx. 24 m2 and 28 m2), each with their en-suite bathroom with shower and washbasin. There is a separate toilet on the landing. Additionally, there is a storage room which also includes the central heating system.
ATTIC (front of the house)
Above the bedrooms, in the attic, there is a third bedroom of approx. 25 m2 which runs across the width of the entire front of the house. This bedroom also has an en-suite bathroom with shower and washbasin.
At the back of the house, you walk into the spacious village garden. This magnificent, cosy garden was designed by a garden architecture. Here, you can relax and enjoy the beautifully laid-out borders and the unique pond in complete privacy. The garden also includes a wooden storage shed of approx. 9 m2 and storage space for firewood. On the side of the house, you have a double carport for parking your car(s).
The name ‘Amerongen’ is first mentioned in 1126. During the Eighty Years’ War, the ‘battle of Amerongen’ took place on 23 June 1585, during which the Dutch troops were utterly defeated by the Spanish army. Traditionally, Amerongen used to be an agricultural community with the sheep grazing on the heather fields on the Utrecht Hill Ridge supplying the manure for the fields. After the dykes were built along the Lower Rhine, the fertile washlands also became suitable for farming. From the 17th up to the 20th century, Amerongen farmers even grew tobacco. The village still has about a dozen typical tobacco sheds from this time.
Amerongen is part of the municipality Utrechtse Heuvelrug and lies at the heart of one of the most beautiful nature reserves of the Netherlands. The varied landscape with woods and heather fields has much to offer to those who seek peace and quiet and natural beauty. Over the years, the village managed to retain its rural character. One of the typical features of Amerongen is the old tobacco sheds scattered around the village. The old village centre is on the southside of the village and includes many monumental houses and, of course, Amerongen Castle, of which the original building was founded in 1286 at the request of Earl Floris V.
South of the village, we also find the washlands of the Lower Rhine while, at the north, there are the extensive woodlands with the 70-metre-high hill, proudly called the ‘Amerongen mountain’. Apart from natural beauty, Amerongen has lots of other amenities: there are several primary schools, sports associations, and various wonderful restaurants.
Amerongen lies at a great central location, at 20 minutes driving from Utrecht and Arnhem, 40 minutes from Den Bosch, and 50 minutes from Amsterdam. The village also has good public transport links.
