Vught, Marggraffstraat 45

  • Type: House
  • Volume in cubic meters: 447 m3
  • Living area: 126 m2

Superbly extended characterful 1930s family home in one of the friendliest parts of Vught.

With the train station just a three-minute walk away, and the Albert Heijn supermarket, cafes and restaurants, two primary schools and the play area in the Versterplein all within easy walking distance, the location of this property couldn’t be better. Marggraffstraat is a quiet street with no through traffic, where children play together and everyone knows their neighbours. This is reflected in neighbourhood barbecue that’s held every year. It’s a friendly, welcoming street where the current owners have enjoyed living for the past 11 years.

Come inside
The property itself is a spacious townhouse built in 1933, with a beautifully renovated and extended ground floor (in 2019) and five (bed)rooms on the first and second floors. Standing outside the house, a few things immediately catch the eye. First, the seating area in the west-facing front garden, where you can relax with a drink in the evening sun. Next, the outstanding condition of the house: the property has been superbly maintained, with the exterior woodwork completely repainted in the autumn of 2021. Adjacent to the bay window with tiled roof is an elegant front door in typical 1930s style, which opens into a welcoming entrance hall with alcove for coats. Under the stairs is a large cupboard, currently being used as a pantry. The hall is separated off from the living room and kitchen by a curved wall, inside which is the spacious downstairs toilet, accessible from the hall.

Cook, eat, relax
The kitchen is located at the front of the house in the bay window area, and has the same anthracite slate floor as the hall. In 2014, the kitchen was renewed by the current owners, including new drawers, cabinets doors, dishwasher and Quooker tap. The extra-wide cooker has a five-burner gas hob with oven underneath, and a mid-height bar serves as a sleek divide between the kitchen and the living area.
The living room, with stylish wooden floor, consists of two separate sitting areas, separated by a half wall with floor-to-ceiling window with steel frame. The first sitting area, in the original part of the house, is a cosy snug for reading and watching TV; the second area, in the extension, looks out over the garden and is flooded with natural light from two large skylights and the fantastic floor-to-ceiling steel-framed doors and windows spanning the entire width of the room. It almost feels like you’re sitting outside, but with all the warmth and comfort provided by the underfloor heating and the stunning, modern glass gas fireplace.

Breakfast in the morning sun
As we’re here, we can take a look outside. Here we find a charming, easy-to-maintain garden with a terrace, lawn and delightful, mature fig tree. At the rear of the garden is an outbuilding, half of which is currently being used as a shed (with rear access), the other half having been converted and with heating, good insulation and the same slate floor as in the house. This half could be used as an office or (art) studio. Since the rear garden is east-facing, the terrace, accessible via the floor-to-ceiling living room doors, is the perfect place to have breakfast al fresco while enjoying the morning sun.


First floor: two or three bedrooms
On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. At the front of the house is a mid-sized bedroom, currently being used as a study, with large built-in cupboard and three windows overlooking the street. Next to this bedroom is a fabulous bathroom, entirely renovated in 2009, with a bath built into an alcove, a wall-mounted toilet and a large, glass shower cabin. The anthracite slate tiles provide continuity with the rest of the house, with the wash basin and window sill, made from black natural stone, also blending in perfectly. A striking feature throughout the house is the use of mirrors to create a feeling of space. This includes the ceiling height mirror above the wash basin and the huge mirrors at each end of the bath, which create an illusion of infinite space.
To the rear on the first floor is the master bedroom, with its large windows creating a light and airy feeling. Directly next to the master bedroom is another smaller room, currently being used as a walk-in wardrobe. The first floor also benefits from a number of large built-in cupboards, typical of a 1930s house, so there is more than enough storage space for any busy family.

Sleep under the eaves
The second floor has also been fully renovated and reinsulated, and is fitted with beautiful oak flooring. There’s a handy natural stone wash basin on the landing for the kids, and a cupboard for the central heating boiler (2005). There are two large bedrooms, each with its own dormer window, plus a laundry room with skylight. The bedrooms benefit from high, sloped ceilings which extend right up to the ridge of the roof; this makes the rooms extra light and airy, while also being characterful and cosy. Throughout the second floor are numerous removable partitions and small doors, providing ample storage space under the sloped roof.

Compact town with good connections
All in all, this is a fantastic family house where one or more people could easily work from home without feeling like they’re on top of each other. The location of the property is outstanding, in a friendly neighbourhood that’s quiet and yet close to all the amenities of the centre of Vught. Vught itself is a highly desirable place to live; for many years now, Vught has been in the list of the best municipalities to live in the Netherlands, compiled by Elsevier magazine. There’s a thriving community and an abundance of sports clubs and other activities on offer, with several primary and secondary schools all just a short distance away. What’s more, it’s just a 10-minute drive to the vibrant centre of Den Bosch, and a short distance to the A2 with its excellent connections to the Randstad and Eindhoven.
