Living at Gein Noord 38 in Abcoude means living in complete freedom in a spacious farmhouse with a floorspace of approximately 477 sq. m., on the picturesque River Gein. Your home is in the middle of a nature reserve, an oasis of peace and green far removed from the bustle of the city – yet less than 15 minutes from Amsterdam Zuid and the Gooi region. The charming centre of Abcoude is even within cycling distance. This little paradise on earth comes with no less than 20,625 sq. m. of land and includes a near-detached house, a private tennis court, a large “haystack” pavilion (floorspace approximately 80 sq. m.), a hidden orangery (unfinished), an orchard with grapevines as well as apple, pear and prune trees, a pasture suitable for horses, a floating landing stage on the river for swimming or sailing, beautiful riverside meadowland and plenty of parking space. The pavilion is currently used for storage, but would make an ideal garage for special cars, workspace or private spa. This truly beautiful country home, with several open fireplaces, is perfect for larger families with a live-in au-pair or a buyer requiring studio space and a home office. With its many windows, there is natural light throughout. The current owner renovated the house in 2010 with a keen eye for detail, using natural materials to create an intimate family home with an authentic feel and a warm ambiance.
Abcoude combines a fine rural location with a full range of activities and amenities. Essential and specialist shops, plenty of cafés and restaurants, good rail and bus links, childcare facilities, preschools and primary schools, riding stables, sports clubs and golf courses add colour to the village and ensure a pleasant living climate. The surrounding countryside offers green fields, unspoilt rivers, country estates and beautiful cycling routes.
