​A luxury thatched-roof home

Part of the excitement of our homify 360° discoveries is getting to see the beautiful locations in which these structures are built. Some are located on beaches, others in dense forests, and others get a superb view of a glittering cityscape.

Today’s discovery treats us to a lush and fresh rural location with a vast lawn, beautiful garden and high-rise trees in the background. Located in Overijssel, the Netherlands, this house is all about escaping the rush of the city and retreating to a more relaxed and tranquil setting.

Oh, and did we mention that the house is also something to boast about? It has a double-storey volume, a thatched roof, a wonderfully rustic design style… well, to find out more about this precious structure and its picturesque location, scroll on!

A prime view

It’s not often we begin our discovery at the back of the house, but this particular one just flaunts such a stunning and serene back yard we couldn’t wait any longer. 

Just look at that amazing roof, which is certainly the star attraction here – or at least one of them. The dormer windows, the high-rise chimney, the monochrome colour scheme.. all the details here serve to visually enhance this rustic-style house most charmingly.

The sunny spot

Part of the beauty of the back garden is that tremendous terrace, which is big enough for both an exterior dining- and seating area. 

Flaunting a subtle and clean layout thanks to the light-toned stone tiles, the terrace is enhanced deliciously via garden touches which seem to shoot straight up through the stone flooring – all adding to the freshness of the picturesque location, of course.

Delicate details

Notice the supreme style contrast achieved by adding modern dormer windows to the rustic thatched roof – not only to add more natural lighting to the indoors, but also to ensure a visually pleasing touch for the house’s exterior look.

The front entrance

Now this is a truly tremendous way to welcome guests in style – with an arched roof, double doors, a porch underneath an overhang, and a touch of lighting and potted plants for visual stimulation.

A vast paradise

Before we depart, we just had to take one last look at the back garden – and to see how vast it really is. The beautiful terrace we’ve seen turns into a fresh and huge lawn, which then becomes a wooded area that forms part and parcel of the garden, albeit on a more dense level. 

But even here one gets the opportunity (and invitation) to lounge in style, with some wooden loungers in the shade in front of a beautiful duck pond – with a view of that amazing house in the background, of course. 

Speaking of wooded areas, have you seen: The seductive home hiding in the forest?
