Unique MONUMENTAL VILLA, originally built in 1856 and fully renovated to style in 2016 (with countless eclectic elements) situated on rustic Pollesingel in Hurdegaryp. The property was used as an office villa for many years by prolific architect Abe Bonnema but has been restored to serve its original residential purpose.
The gorgeous front yard was re-landscaped in the 1970s by Mien Ruys. The original Gerrit Vlaskmap garden behind the house is still intact, showcasing monumental trees, borders with vintage stinzen plants, lawns, a hill and a pond. The entire garden is lined with fencing. At the rear is a timber shed for gardening equipment and firewood. The street-facing garden features 1.8m tall fencing and a double gate. At the side of the house is an attached double CARPORT and ample visitor parking space.
The entire property has been impeccably renovated, implementing high-grade materials.
The general layout is as follows:
Side entrance with beautiful original marble flooring, panel doors, stunning grand wooden staircase and a contemporary restroom with a wall-mounted toilet and washbasin. The spacious living room (6.25 x 7.25) at the front features an exceptional original crown molded ceiling, wide herringbone parquet flooring, a marble fireplace mantel with a wood burner and a door to the adjacent family room/ study with the same finishes. Beautiful garden doors lead from these rooms to the front terrace. The wrought iron canopy defines the front facade of the villa.
At the rear is a beautiful modern extension (11 x 12) which incorporates a spacious, contemporary and luxury kitchen/lounge, garden room/den, the raised room 'opkamer' and spacious adjacent dining room. The kitchen is fitted with a chef's island, a large oven and gas cooker, and a full range of appliances including a wine cabinet, large refrigerator, dishwasher, Quooker, etc. The variation in floor heights creates the different rooms, and all rooms feature beautiful natural stone flooring and underfloor heating, countless windows overlooking the garden, and tall and open ceilings - combining to create a welcoming and spacious home. Adjacent is the rear entrance to the house with a hall with beautiful Frisian 'geeltjes' tiling, a wooden cupboard wall with the fittings for a range of appliances and equipment, coat area and a door to the veranda. Spacious storage area that can be accessed from the garden and the parking space, and a connecting carport for two cars. There is yet another large, secluded terrace to the side of the house, facing south.

Stairs from the landing lead to the mezzanine floor, with a third spacious bedroom and a second luxury bathroom with a shower, sink and separate adjacent restroom. This entire floor is fitted with beautiful floorboards. Stairs from the mezzanine lead to the raised 'opkamer' room.
