Vught, Marggraffstraat 20

  • Type: House
  • Volume in cubic meters: 789 m3

Would you like to live and work from home in one of the friendliest, most desirable streets in Vught?
Then this is the perfect property for you! This typical 1930s family home is located in the popular, child-friendly Marggraffstraat and has five good-sized bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large kitchen-diner and a fantastic garden with maximum privacy. In other words, the ideal home for any family, especially since the separate kitchen-diner on the ground floor offers the potential for everyone to do their own thing without getting in each other’s way. What’s more, this is an extremely child-friendly neighbourhood, with a park and a play area a stone’s throw away and the train station just around the corner.

Built in the 1930s when architects still designed large, generous spaces, everything in this house feels spacious. This is noticeable, for instance, from the way in which the roof protrudes quite a significant distance from the gable, giving the house an imposing air. Likewise the main staircase, with its classic œil de bœuf window, and other smart details such as the slightly extended gable wall which creates an attractive corner concealing the drainpipe.

As you enter the house, the classic, heavy front door opens into an enclosed porch, with fuse box and space for hanging coats. Immediately beyond the porch is the central hall with access to the living room, the elegant wooden staircase and the downstairs WC. The latter is surprisingly spacious and benefits from a circular skylight which makes the space extremely light. There is attractive, dark grey natural stone flooring throughout the hallway and in the downstairs WC. Next, via a door with glazing, we enter the light and airy living room with beautiful oak floor and French doors out to the garden.

The layout of the downstairs creates a natural division between the front and the rear of the house. The most logical option would be to use the room at the rear, on the garden side, as the living room, and the front room as a playroom or home office. If desired, you could easily fit sliding glass doors to separate off the two rooms when necessary. At approximately 24m2, the living room at the rear is extremely spacious and, opening out onto an equally wide west-facing garden terrace, enjoys the evening sun.

Next to this terrace is an extension comprising the large kitchen-diner, which can also be separated off from the rest of the downstairs by closing the door. The kitchen-diner benefits from a large skylight, natural stone floor with underfloor heating and windows on two sides with views of the terrace and garden. This is a fantastic space, where a considerable part of family life plays out around the large table. The kitchen itself has all the modern features you would expect, with an island with sink, a huge double gas oven, an extra-large extractor hood and an alcove for the large American style fridge freezer. The kitchen leads through to the sleek and modern utility room, with washing machine and dryer plus built-in cupboards for storing cleaning products and suchlike.

Behind the utility room is the garage, at the front of the house; this is too small to accommodate a large modern car, but is ideal for keeping bicycles and scooters. There is ample space for parking – enough for two cars – immediately in front of the garage on the property’s own driveway, so parking is never a problem!

Now let’s take a look upstairs. From the hall, under the characterful arch, the wide, elegant staircase leads to the first-floor bedrooms and family bathroom. The landing is large, with five robust doors. There are two large bedrooms and a third, slightly smaller room that could also be used as a study, playroom or linen room. Also on the first floor is the super-modern family bathroom installed in 2018, with underfloor heating, a bath and separate walk-in shower, a toilet and a double washbasin with large drawers. The large bedroom at the rear of the house has its own washbasin. Both of the larger bedrooms have good-sized, built-in cupboards which make the most of the space under the stairs to the second floor.

The fifth door on the landing leads to the staircase to the second floor. Here there is another landing with a whole array of built-in cupboards under the sloping roof, plus a second, modern shower room (also installed in 2018), with shower, washbasin and toilet. Also on the second floor are a further two bedrooms, both of which benefit from a large dormer window which creates an extremely light and airy feeling. If desired, it would be easy to knock these two rooms through to create one large master suite/bedroom. The second floor has air-conditioning, so the temperature remains comfortable even at the height of the summer.

As already mentioned, thanks to both its location and its layout, this property is the ideal family home. The garden, enclosed by hedges for maximum privacy and with mature shrubs and west-facing terrace, gives the property an extra dimension. It’s almost like an extra living room, where you can spend whole days together and enjoy the last rays of sun on those long summer evenings.

All in all, this is a fantastic opportunity for anyone seeking a substantial home and who’d like to move straight in, without any hassle. Marggraffstraat is an extremely friendly street, where people know each other and children play in one another’s houses. What’s more, the house is only a few minutes’ walk to the train station and the Albert Heijn supermarket, and close to a park and the play area on the Versterplein. Vught itself is a great place to live, being a town of manageable proportions with a thriving community and plenty of activities, clubs and societies. Moreover, it’s located close to the A2, with excellent connections to the Randstad and the rest of the country, and only a 15-minute drive to the vibrant heart of Den Bosch.
