Look Inside a Serene $5.3M Modern in the Netherlands

Modern homes are fashionable backdrops, which may be why they are often seen in hit movies and TV shows. For example, this year’s Best Picture-winner at the Oscars, Parasite, had a central star in the form of its primary setting. Half set, half digital construction, the ultra-modern manse even earned the production design team an Oscar nomination for its sleek architectural genius. In the Netherlands, a spectacular modern with a similar set of film-worthy features (in a markedly more pastoral location) has hit the market. Asking approximately $5.365 million (4.95€ million), the Utrecht estate known as Hamersveldseweg is serene yet dramatic.

Situated in a vast meadow and surrounded by pristine gardens, the home includes six bedrooms within its 7,448-square-feet. A sleek European villa, the estate exists as an oasis of peace and privacy guarded by gates. A long gravel driveway steadily introduces visitors to the property, lined by pleasingly asymmetrical orchards on either side. Eventually, the main house appears, a low structure of dark-hued, extra-long masonry bricks. The spacious main entrance on the ground floor flows past a guest bathroom with a fountain to the glass walkway which bridges the wings. In one wing lies the open floor living room, kitchen, and dining room.

On the other side of the walkway sits the master suite, installed with a Turkish bath and infrared sauna. A floating staircase descends to the lower level, with four additional bedrooms and a gym. Just outside is the heated pool, which overlooks the blissful gardens beyond.
