's-Hertogenbosch, Graaf van Solmsweg 79

Do you dream of living in a spacious home with a lovely garden and views across the water? Well, you can! Enjoy the peace and tranquility of the countryside in a wonderfully green environment, while watching the boats sail by. And all this just a short cycle ride away from the vibrant heart of ’s-Hertogenbosch.

In the morning, the sun rises above the Diezeriver at the front of the house, shining into the front room/office. In the afternoon and evening, you can enjoy both sun and shade in the stunning, richly planted rear garden: on the veranda, the terrace or in the shade of the fig and the walnut tree. A true holiday feeling and ‘joie de vivre’ guaranteed. This dream can become reality in beautiful Engelen.

The property is built on the foundations of the previous building, which dated from 1859. The house was completely rebuilt in the 1980s and is now ready to be cared for by the next generation. You could opt to live only on the ground floor, with a large bedroom and bathroom downstairs, and for instance a deluxe, open plan kitchen-diner next to the conservatory. However, the spacious first floor of the property has huge potential, with plenty of space for three large bedrooms with walk-in wardrobe and views across the canal or the rear garden. Plus an extra bathroom, for which all the necessary plumbing is already in place. To give you an idea of the options, see the sketches drawn up by our architect, included with the photos. As you can see, this property would make a fantastic family home, including a home office if desired.

Would you like to work from home? This property would also be ideal for this. In fact, it used to be a G.P. surgery, later being modified to accommodate its elderly residents. For instance, you could use the rooms downstairs at the front of the house as a waiting room and office/treatment room, and the upstairs and rear rooms downstairs to live in. Or, you could make optimum use of the large garden and create purpose-built business premises there: in fact, the garden is also accessible from the rear side, via a wide, electrically operated gate leading onto the public road. This makes it an ideal place to build a detached office, (artist’s) studio or treatment room.

Currently there are three rooms plus conservatory on the ground floor, and an enormous, light and airy attic space upstairs, currently divided into two separate rooms. However, looking beyond the existing layout, it’s clear that this property is bursting with opportunities. With an extra investment, this house could be transformed into a stunning, highly spacious and super-modern home with large garden, home office/treatment room/(artist’s) studio and up to four bedrooms. All this in beautiful, leafy surroundings within a friendly a village setting, in rural tranquility and yet close to the heart of ‘s-Hertogenbosch.

The property is located just to the north of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, on a quiet street that is mainly used as a bicycle route. A short distance away is Dierenpark De Vlacie with its lake, play area and animals, and the supermarket is just a four-minute cycle ride away. In terms of leisure activities, a variety of sports clubs (golf, tennis, padel, football, watersports) and the Engelermeer nature reserve are all within easy cycling distance. Engelen also has two primary schools: Kindcentrum de Matrix (primary school plus out-of-school childcare) and a Jenaplan school, both a 10-minute walk away.

A quick trip into the city? The vibrant heart of ’s-Hertogenbosch is easy to reach by bicycle, and 10 minutes away by car. What’s more, the ring road is just a few minutes’ drive away, from where it’s a 35-minute drive to Eindhoven and 40 minutes to the centre of Utrecht. That said, we can imagine that you’d prefer to stay home, enjoying the peace and quiet, the sunny conservatory and garden and the fabulous view across the water at the front of the house.
