Blaricum Manor in Gooi

This manor in the community of Blaricum, in the area of Gooi in The Netherlands was built in the 30-ies and has been owned by one family house during many years.

Blaricum Manor

Over the years many changes we’re made but because every single change was done in a different and inconsistent manner.
The house lost most of its character and because of neglect in maintenance was in a poor condition.

The new owners hired Rik de Jager to make a full design both for the interior and exterior. Throughout the entire design and built process the owners showed an enormous dedication to their new house. To give the house some of its “grandeur” back all windows were removed and replaced for wooden frames with wooden doors and windows.

Blaricum Manor

All doors and windows have strictly a same pane size. Profiles to all wooden parts on the house are traditional profiles.
Most of the windows changed of position wherever it suited the interior design. New dormers were placed on the new thatched roof.
The original brick facade was plastered and painted in a grey-clay colour.

The side-building (former garage / practice in front of pool) had a tiled roof and a storage attic above.

To make this side-building a more prominent part of the main house all walls were removed and opened up to the main house.
The new roof (also thatched) was also lifted up to be able to make a bedroom, and also to make a walkway to the main house.
Originally, in the existing situation, the extension had, a small porch (terras,veranda?). This porch, was closed off by one big glass panel, and connected to the kitchen.

The former porch now serves as a wine chamber and have two built in glass front wine fridges. The former garage doors were removed and replaced for a big steel window frame and gives a magnificent view to the new designed garden.
