An imposing listed period property in Neorenaissance style, designed by C.J. Roode. Situated in a beautiful and quiet street, Surinamestraat, with a deep SW facing garden designed by the landscape architect Loek Hoek, with a large pond and rear access.
The authentic, very richly decorated interior was completely restored a few years ago, while retaining the original features.
The exuberantly decorated hall and stairwell with faux marble walls, featured as backdrop for the Dutch film ‘Eline Vere’, based on the famous 1889 novel by Louis Couperus. The house exudes the atmosphere of times long gone, yet at the same time offers modern comforts with its many rooms, including 3 bathrooms and 7/8 bedrooms.
