Over H.W. Iordensweg 27
You have access to this beautiful estate via a long private driveway. A gate is missing, since the current owners have decided to open up this NSW estate. However, you are of course free to change that. Nonetheless, there is no lack of privacy available on the plot of over 17 acres, even though the estate is still located - and that is unique - in the middle of Twello, with schools and shops within reach and central in the Netherlands; Apeldoorn, Deventer and Zupthen are close. The Veenhuis was already mentioned for the first time in 1298. And when nobleman Johan Hackfort constructed a new building there in 1578, this was henceforth known as “Hackfort’s Veenhuis”. Subsequent owners left their architectural mark and in 1932 the former owner thoroughly remodelled the building in one single go by Jan Diederik Postma. He designed a beautiful new coherent whole, in historical style. Interesting detail: a still young Romke de Vries is also involved in the project. He would later grow into a real modernist. That construction style is hard to find in the Hackfort’s Veenhuis: whoever does not know better would think they were looking at an eighteenth-century country house. Especially since the house, with a living space of approximately 700 m², was renovated to perfection in 2003 and is now a beautiful image - surrounded by an English park garden in country style, with meadow, forest with ancient trees and various ponds.
A few stairs lead to the stately front door in the symmetrical façade, with shutters and rod windows, below a tiled roof. You will step into the bright hall with its marble floor, where a staircase revolves upward. Behind the hall is an antichambre that provides access to all surrounding living rooms. The conservatory - in the style of a classic orangery - and the lovely living kitchen, with pantry and access to the cellars, deserve special attention. Via the staircase you will reach the bedrooms on the first floor, including a master suite with bathroom, walk-in closet and a fireplace. The other two bedrooms have a five star-bathroom available to them. The second floor offers another three bedrooms and a bathroom. A fourth room is in use as a laundry room. It is worth mentioning that there is another staircase, in the tower, which ends in a look-out: you will truly feel ‘master of all you survey’ there. In 2008 a ‘coach house’ was constructed, with a royal garage (120 m²), horse stables, a tack room and washing area. The horse manger (20 x 60 m) is - of course - equipped with an Agterberg soil, perfect for serious dressage or show jumping. On the first floor of the coach house there is an independent apartment (incl. three bedrooms) and a studio (35 m²). In addition, there is also a fully-fledged gardener house (approx. 105 m²) and finally there is the authorisation to build for approximately 500 m², with in addition the possibility to build a swimming pool or tennis court. The Hackfort’s Veenhuis offers the new lord of the manor all the space to make dreams come true.
