Luxurious and comfortable house on the water in the characteristic Oude Pekela
Located on the historic Pekelderdiep, with its wealth of the former agricultural industry, shipbuilding and shipping, lies the peat colonial village Oude Pekela.
The old river "Pekel A" - literally "salt water" - is the namesake of the villages Oude and Nieuwe Pekela. The land along the Pekel A, purchased by the Pekelder Company in 1599, was developed for the peat and agricultural industry. The villages thus created then developed into a center of the peat colonial and international shipping industry and the strawboard industry.
The Pekel A, which was later channeled to Pekelderdiep, gives the village a modest and restful atmosphere. The diversity of houses along the canal, the farms, the mansions and the workers' houses form a diverse and inseparable whole, which still reflects the glory of the old rich past.
Oude Pekela is a wonderful village for walking, shopping and from there to explore the area.
The old agricultural land with its various crops still provide beautiful views. In the immediate vicinity are the wooded Westerwolde and the city of Winschoten with its extensive catering and shopping offer.
This spacious, luxurious and comfortable home from 2007 is located on the edge of this historic village, in a very quiet and spacious area, near the Pekelder forest and swimming water with sandy beach. De Meerkoet is located on a peninsula, surrounded by water. With only local traffic, the street is very quiet and child-friendly. The very well maintained and luxuriously finished house at Meerkoet 6 stands on a plot of 620 m2, located on the water and surrounded by a garden that offers a lot of privacy.
A lovely place on the water where the village and deep, the forest and the beach are within walking distance.
Due to its location on the N367, the village of Veendam is about 10 minutes away and the city of Groningen can be reached within half an hour by car. There are many basic facilities (schools, shops and social organizations) in both the village and nearby Winschoten.
The stylish entrance gives access to a spacious and bright hall (approx. 10 m2) with toilet and wardrobe. The hall leads to the very spacious living room (approx. 41 m2). This living room, equipped with a gas fireplace, and its many large windows, emphasizes the wonderful indoor-outdoor feeling that is so characteristic of the atmosphere of the entire house. Through the double doors you enter the spacious kitchen diner (approx. 25 m2). The kitchen is of excellent quality and includes a 5-burner gas stove, built-in oven and microwave, built-in coffee machine, steamer, dishwasher and ample storage options. The kitchen diner offers access to the handmade wooden conservatory (approx. 25 m2) through a wide sliding door. The utility room (approx. 9 m2), which is accessible from the kitchen, has connections for washing machine and dryer and also provides access to the indoor garage (approx. 21 m2).
