Pass through the stately entrance gates to discover a heavenly estate in which life proceeds at its own pace

Country estate Achthoven

Country estate Achthoven (1876) in Montfoort is a magnificent property. History and the future are united here in perfect harmony. Good taste, fantastic style and respect for the past have been combined with an uncompromising commitment to comfort to create a living environment that leaves virtually nothing to be desired in any way. Pass through the stately entrance gates to discover a heavenly, 3.8 hectare estate in which life proceeds at its own pace. Peace, space and pure living pleasure prevail.

Achthoven was originally built as a country retreat in the 19th century, so the residents could enjoy the peace and quiet of a rural setting. After that, it became a farm where people worked. However, the estate has now regained its allure and prestige, particularly during the past decade. The old farmhouse has undergone a complete metamorphosis. While this has been accomplished with great respect for the past, which remains both visible and palpable, this characterful farmhouse has also been transported to the present. The renovation was an intensive project of considerable scope, and made no concessions with respect to quality and comfort. The result was a high-end renovation, perfect in every detail. Everything of historical value was carefully restored and reused. This, combined with the finest, most luxurious modern amenities, all finished to an extremely high level of quality, has culminated in what can only be described as a unique residential experience.

Past and present
The farmhouse has a spacious reception hall, an attractive, professionally equipped kitchen, a library and a beautiful living room with historic fireplace. The master bedroom is located on the ground floor and furnished with every possible amenity. The second floor boasts a large studio, a guest room and another spacious bedroom, although you probably wouldn’t be wrong in describing it as an apartment. The distinctive wooden uprights and ceiling beams – the ‘backbone’ of the residential farmhouse – are a clear link to the past and harmonise perfectly with the modern comforts added during the renovation. The renovation has preserved as many of the original elements as possible, and integrated them in the most authentic way to create an extraordinarily stylish and pleasant interior. Examples include the sinks made of Belgian bluestone, the decorative tiled walls in the toilets and the unique door to the wine cellar, which is made from wood with metal fittings, and comes from a former fortress. Old and new merge here in a spectacular, yet seamless manner.

The same can be said of the other buildings – the guesthouse with office, the indoor pool, the wellness area and gym, the traditional hay shed that now serves as a bar and meeting room, the stylish carriage house with garages, an orangery and an outdoor kitchen.

Relax and enjoy
Country estate Achthoven uniquely combines living, work and leisure. You can do cardio and strength training in the modern gym, and when it comes to enjoying an invigorating wellness session, you have everything you need right at home: a heated pool, sauna, steam room, rain shower and massage room. As the setting sun beams in through the French doors, you’ll know one thing for sure: life doesn't get any better than it is right here and now.
The beautiful orangery is located diagonally to the rear of the main house, and as well as garages and a storage area, includes a toilet, an additional kitchen and a covered outdoor kitchen. It’s the perfect place to cook and dine late into the night with friends and family, enjoying balmy summer evenings and the outdoors.

And now we come to the fully restored hay shed – perhaps the most striking building on the estate. It has been transformed into a bar with billiard room, another kitchen, and upstairs a meeting and conference area offering beautiful, panoramic views in all directions. It’s an inspiring place for great conversation or deep thought.

A way of life
The magnificent garden at Country estate Achthoven is a very generous 3.8 acres in area, and has the allure of a park. The property is situated in a quiet area along a country road. The Hollandsche IJssel River flows past behind the estate, so you can easily sail from your own dock towards Utrecht and Amsterdam. To say that there is ample tranquillity and space here is something of an understatement. The creation of this park focused on the enjoyment of peace and openness in green surroundings. Formal gardens with symmetrical flowerbeds enclosed with hedges have been established at the front of and alongside the farmhouse. There are also extensive lawns, tree-lined avenues, water features and even a natural pond with a private beach. From now on, you won’t need to leave home to have a wonderful holiday.

The property has ample parking for yourself, your guests and your business associates. Country estate Achthoven is an idyll, a true garden of delight, and a way of life. This country estate is laid out in a timeless, rural style that perfectly suits the surroundings. The entire property is in impeccable condition. You can either move in right away, or you can adapt it to meet your personal needs. All of the basic amenities are there. Whether you are looking to create a guesthouse or a space for your practice, or to split the property into several residences, anything is possible.

Ideal location
Despite its rustic, rural location, city life is just a short distance away. The characterful fortified town of Montfoort is close by, and you can be in the bustling centre of Utrecht within fifteen minutes. The property’s central location provides quick and easy access to Schiphol Airport and the cities of Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Den Bosch.
