Your own country house in Salland - Freedom and tranquility in one of the most beautiful places in the Netherlands Escape the rat race? That is possible in Salland, just outside Deventer. In the hamlet of Oude Molen, near the village of Lettele, just 5 minutes by bike from Bathmen and 10 minutes by car from the Hanseatic city of Deventer and the A1 motorway (Deventer East) is the Traasterbos, an 18th century estate with a rich history. In 1823 we find clear documentation of this, and there was a reference to the present star forest with the name 't Raasterbos. This name became corrupted to Traasterbos, as it was called from 1855 onwards. At that time it was an estate with long avenues and a star forest. Star forests were a practical invention of the early 18th century; the path structure was set up in a star shape, with all of them intersecting in the middle. This provided for varied footpaths, clear sightlines (after all, from the center all paths were visible, and thus also the wildlife that was crossing at the time) and coppice. The current country house was built in 1959, and it fits the definition of a country house exactly: a house in the countryside, with buildings and a surrounding country estate that together form an inseparable whole, the ensemble. The beautiful garden layout gives the feeling of being away from it all. During a stroll through the beautifully landscaped and manicured gardens, you can enjoy the soft green glint of sunlight through the early spring leaves and a splashing water feature. Animal lovers will also be able to get their proverbial fix here; the current owners are fervent horse lovers and there is an extensive stable complex available. There is also a large run for a group of feathered friends. Particularly attractive: the estate can be reclassified under the Nature Conservation Act, whereby the new owner can reap the benefits of several tax advantages that go with it. There are tax advantages for income tax, corporation tax, transfer tax, gift and inheritance tax and property tax. The house was built in 1959 and this is reflected in the imagery used. It was, after all, the time of reconstruction, and one had one foot in the architecture of the pre-war period and the other in the new era. A clear form was chosen, with a saddleback roof, continuous awnings and overhangs. Here and there the architect makes a nod to the 'old style' country houses, for example by placing a garden room in the heart of the house and applying wooden consoles under the overhangs. The entrance is contained in an imposing glass front with beautiful detailing in the latticework. The house is averse to excess, but follows the function of the internal living program. Also nice: living and sleeping can optionally be on the first floor, because here are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Ground Floor Through the ornamental wrought iron gate, we follow the long driveway to the house. With Rhododendrons, Horstensias, shrubs, trees and outbuildings as a welcoming committee, the path winds to the heart of the striking, L-shaped house. The entrance is incorporated into a glass front that spans two floors and provides a good dose of daylight inside the home. And actually, that is -according to good practice here in the east- backwards: the house presents itself on the garden side, where it is oriented to the south, with the garden room as a real eye-catcher. Today's architecture relies heavily on such images and this particular country house therefore needs little to adapt to the contemporary form. And that - in our opinion of De Haan Schippers - is the quality of a good architect. Entrance into the spacious, bright lobby, where access to almost all rooms in the house. On the floor the original tiles in terracotta red. Left around the corner still the original bell. In the middle of the hall the open staircase with wrought iron bars. On the left is the WC with a classic washbasin. Then the small bedroom on the first floor, with two closets. On the garden side, the master bedroom, with French doors to the terrace, several fitted wardrobes and a private bathroom with shower, sink and bathtub. On the right side access to the L-shaped living room with beautiful, herringbone laid oak parquet floor, a classic fireplace with hearth and access to the sunny terrace on the garden side. The canopy here serves as an awning for the living room and at the same time creates a nice, sheltered seating area with a peak view of the garden. In the middle of the house the garden room, which is currently arranged as a library cum study. With the large window on the front, this room offers perhaps the best view. From the living room access to the kitchen, with a lovely sun terrace at the doors. On the floor again the original tiled floor. The kitchen is contemporary, handle-free, with white fronts and a stone worktop. Of course it is equipped with all necessary appliances including a refrigerator, a large induction plate, dishwasher and two ovens. From the kitchen we can also reach the spacious basement with several rooms, so not only the non-perishable stock has a place immediately, but also the wine stock. At the head of the kitchen is the utility room, containing connections for the washer and dryer and storage space for the muddy boots, sneakers, dog leashes and other accessories. Upstairs The large landing has no less than five bedrooms, each with its own unique character. The magnificent view is common to them all, as they all look out over the garden. There is also a bathroom with shower, WC and washbasin. Through the middle bedroom on the garden side access to the attic, with a loft ladder. So there is plenty of storage space, because the attic stretches along the length of the house. There is also behind the knee walls extra storage space. If nevertheless it does not fit, there is above the kitchen and utility room a second attic, which is accessible through the "hay hatch" at the front. Outdoor area The estate itself is over 11 hectares of which approximately 3.5 hectares is pasture. If you have saddled the horses, you can drive out for a forest ride of 3.5 hours. This is virtually untraceable in the Netherlands, but from the Traasterbos it is possible. The stables have room for four horses and of course a tack room, and plenty of room for storing hay, straw and all kinds of care products. There is also a spacious orangery, because with an ornamental garden like this it is of course nice if the citrus trees and Bougainvilleas can overwinter inside. In addition, there is a barn with animal quarters, lounge area and a private workshop with power. An enchanting ivy-covered gate gives access to the garden. Here we find an orchard, large pond with gold carp, colorful flower beds and borders. There is a picking garden, so that fresh dahlias are on the table throughout the summer, and there is a spacious vegetable garden. There is also an animal house for ornamental birds and chickens, with a large run so they are protected from Mr. Fox, but still can enjoy free-range. It is also a true children's paradise - with swimming pond, - tree house, - croquet field, and - large swing. In short This estate is a beautiful ensemble, and the whole with over 110,000 m² of land want to do justice with a description, is impossible. You must see and experience it. To live in a country house like this is a privilege as well as a task, because preserving it also means contributing substantially to Dutch cultural history. As an old sage once said in the beautiful magazine 'De Buitenpropagandist' in 1937: 'Housing shortage can be solved, after all, one can build houses in any number. Land scarcity is synonymous with rising prices, for land is not producible. Land is immutable.' Duly noted. Has your interest been piqued? We would be happy to show you around the beautiful Traasterbos Estate.
