A 1930s town house with a B-grade energy label. That is quite unique! Over the years, the current owners have literally put a lot of energy into making this house sustainable. And now you can be the one that benefits from that.
Beautiful, charming, very well-maintained home with lots of lovely, original period features, no less than 4/5 bedrooms, a long front garden and a sunny, south west-facing back garden that is very private.
Location and surroundings:
The Damsigt residential area is known for accommodating many (young) families, and for its charming atmosphere. Peaceful living but yet just around the corner from all the necessary amenities. The Sytwende Park, sports fields and the newly renovated shopping centre, the Westfield-Mall of the Netherlands, are just a stone’s throw away. There are several junior and senior schools close by, and the British School in Leidschenveen is an easy drive away The centre of The Hague, the beach and the dunes can all be easily reached by bike, car and public transport (including the RandstadRail metro line). Thanks to the proximity of the main highways – the A4, A12 and A44 – and 3 railway stations, this property is perfectly located for home to work commutes both within and outside the city.
