Weteringkade 47, The Hague
Are you looking for something unique in the centre of The Hague?
We are now able to offer a truly wonderful, spacious town house with multiple uses. As this property used to be registered at the landregistry ofice under two numbers (the ground floor being registered as a living and office space) this beautifully renovated building is suitable for use as a home with office space or a two-storey upper dwelling with a downstairs apartment for another use (Kangaroo home / granny flat / living with friends / rental apartment). Of course, you may also choose to just enjoy the grandeur and the living space and use it as one large home, as it is now being used.
This fabulous home with appealing sightlines is on a service road along the Weteringkade and has a lot of lovely natural light on all floors. It has a large garden and shed with rear access, but there is also room for parking, both to the front and rear of the house. The location, in the hip, up-coming Rivierenbuurt is ideal for the highways, Hollands Spoor and Central Station. The leafy Huijgens Park with its playground areas, The Hague’s city centre and the Avenue Culinaire, with its choice of top restaurants, are all within walking distance. There is something for everyone!
You enter the property via the original lobby, which has the original, very well-maintained, period-feature marble wall and floor tiles and an internal door, where the nicely-hidden, extensive meter cupboard with 3 fuse boxes (a total of 14 circuits) can be found.
From here, you enter the hall with the original, period-feature granito floor that provides access to the downstairs living area and a charming staircase leads up to the property on the 1st and 2nd floors.
On the ground floor there is a suite of 2 rooms, a spacious bathroom and a cloakroom with WC. The suite of rooms has been fitted with a very well-maintained, oak wood floor. The front room is 5.15×3.87 and is currently being used as a home office. Via a beautiful sliding door unit that separates the two rooms and has facetted glass doors and four spacious, integrated storage cupboards, you enter the back room, which is 6.91×3.87 and is now used as a large bedroom and garden room.
The bedroom / garden room has access to the luxury bathroom, which is 3.98×2.48 and has a large jacuzzi, a designer radiator, a shower cabin with a steam and infra-red sauna, light, music and an electric ventilator. In the sunroom part of the garden room / bedroom, there is a bijoux, modern kitchen with an instant hot water boiler and a little fridge. This is handy for when you are in the garden as it can be easily accessed via French doors.
The sunny, leafy back garden is approx. 10.5×6.00, has a classic brick terrace and is very private as there are no houses directly behind it. The garden is south east-facing, so you are guaranteed sun for most of the day! You can also enjoy a bit of shade, offered by an old pear tree. At the bottom of the garden there is a shed that is 6.00×2.46 with tongue and groove cladding, and a Sedum green roof. There is also rear access into the Spaarnestraat. According to the land registry, the shed is registered as two objects that have been merged into one, but this can easily be split up again.
First floor: this floor has also been fitted with a well-maintained oak wood floor and has the same 3.30 meter high ceilings as the ground floor; the landing provides access to the living room, which is 5.39×5.79 and has a very classic feel (fireplace, corniced ceilings, a bay window and classic unit to separate the rooms) to the front, including a charming bay window with stained glass tableaux in the top widows (protected against the weather through secondary glazing); the original unit which separates the two rooms has storage space and sliding doors with facetted glass panes, leading through to the back room, which is 5.52×4.01 and where you have direct access to the internal, spacious, sunny terrace, which is 2.05×3.10 and very private. From the landing there is also a modern cloakroom with a WC and little hand basin, and the separate kitchen, which is fitted with a 5-burner gas cooker, a cooker hood, and a dishwasher, with access to a second back balcony.
2nd floor: off the landing, which has an oak wood floor and a fabulous, stained glass skylight, there is access to two bedrooms, a cloakroom with WC and hand basin, a laundry room and a storage room. The laundry room (former kitchen) is 3.42×2.45 and has plumbing for a washing machine, and a wall of smart cupboards. The back bedroom, which is 4.11×3.91, has corniced ceilings and a black marble fireplace, was very recently renovated and has a spacious, sunny balcony and an en-suite bathroom with a shower, bath and sink unit. The front bedroom is 5.79×3.81 and has period-feature stained glass windows, a black marble fireplace and access to a small front balcony. Between the bedrooms there is a storage room with a skylight that could be easily converted into a (Jack and Jill) bathroom.
