First floor layout:
Wrought iron gate leads to the formally landscaped front garden with boxwood beds, a water ornament and an imposing Maple tree. At the covered entrance is bluestone platform with wrought iron railings. The front door with overhead light and door grille leads to the long, high hallway. The floor is laid with natural stone and there is wood paneling. Double doors with glass lead to the house-deep living room on the left side of the villa. The floor here is laid with herringbone parquet flooring, there are high ceilings with mouldings and rosettes, there is wall paneling and two marble fireplaces. The adjoining conservatory was rebuilt in 1996 in the Victorian style and is separated from the living room with sliding doors. The sunroom offers beautiful views of both front and back gardens. At the rear are double doors toward the backyard and there is a sliding door to the side yard.
The classic kitchen with creamy white panel doors and porcelain knob handles is located on the right side of the home. Here the floor is laid with black-white-gray floor tiles in an ornate pattern. There is a hard stone countertop with a sink with Quooker. Under the wide fireplace is a 90-centimeter wide stove with two ovens.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a dining room overlooking the formal front yard. There are fixed cabinets, wainscoting and an ornate stove in the corner. At the rear of the villa is a practical utility room with kitchenette, 2nd dishwasher and additional refrigerator. From here is also access to the backyard. In the dry pantry are the connections for white goods equipment.
Second floor layout:
On the second floor there are currently three bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate toilet. On the left side of the house is the master bedroom of no less than 10.60 deep. This impressive bedroom can easily be divided into two, as was the case in the past.
On the landing, the original panel doors with richly panelled architraves are still intact. If desired, there will be two spacious bedrooms of 22m2 after division. On the right front and rear are the other two spacious bedrooms.
The bathroom is equipped with a bathtub, a shower and a washbasin. A high window provides a sea of light.
The imposing 19th century staircase also leads to the attic. Here is an additional bedroom and under the imposing wooden roof construction with ornate dormers, there is an open attic space and the former "maid's room. Because of its great height and the windows already present, the attic offers numerous possibilities for realizing multiple living desires. The attic has a future living area of 53 m², which after insulation and furnishing can be added directly to the living area, creating a living area of almost 300 m².
The formal front garden with ornamental fencing, brick posts and two entrance gates lead to the imposing "Villa Felicitas". Built in Chalet style with influences of the Neo-Renaissance, the villa is still full of perfectly preserved characteristic elements. There are 19th century panel doors, richly decorated architraves, high stucco ceilings with ornaments, plastered walls, several fireplaces and a beautiful authentic staircase. On the façade, the stuccoed bacon layers and white-painted keystones immediately catch the eye. In the late 1990s, the original dormers were replaced by the current owner.
Behind the villa is a well-kept evergreen garden with lawn, mature trees and shrubs. Directly behind the villa is a large sun terrace, adjacent to an eco-pond. The former bakery is equipped with electricity and serves as a storage room. Under the adjoining canopy it is nice to stay until late in the evening with a view over the pond and evergreen planting. Next to the villa is a second storage room.
The villa is carefully maintained and almost entirely equipped with insulating glazing. The floor in the conservatory, kitchen, utility room and dining room are insulated and clamp walls have been installed in several places.
