A lodge in Africa on the Utrecht Ridge In the heart of the Netherlands, on the Utrechtse Heuvelrug, on the edge of ancient forests, this unique estate is hidden. Built from pure materials to form a total unity with the environment. The round shapes, the use of reeds, wood and natural stone and the orientation towards the sun make a real connection with nature. Not surprisingly, outdoor living and enjoying life predominate at this beautiful estate. Around the manor house it is airy and light on over 51,000 m² of private land. After large lawns and landings, the forest follows on all sides. A warm family home, a country house with coach house that is large (945 m² living space) yet intimate because all the spaces have a human size and form. It is definitely not a straightforward house, and it is made with great taste and attention to detail. It is really built to be enjoyed. The estate is equipped with every comfort, has enormous charm, is warm and stylish and modern and classic at the same time. Deer and bird watching, long walks in the surrounding woods, horseback riding or golf next door, children in tree houses, garden parties, with a good glass of wine alone or with friends in the evening sun enjoying the completely unobstructed view, it's all possible. Country living at its best! The whole is reminiscent of a lodge in Africa. This property is for sale (silent auction, high price range). For details and additional information please contact us.
