In the afternoon sun, you’ll meet with the neighbours on the luxurious roof terrace in the lounge set or at the picnic table.
The flat is entirely safe by pavement-level boarding for persons of reduced mobility and so is the roof terrace. With the lift and automatically opening outer door, the complex is very friendly for disabled people.

The resident’s own words:
“I have enjoyed living in LeidscheRijn for 7 years. This apartment complex shows character with its glass entrance and spiral staircase. The accessibility of the flat is ideal. From the flat it is maybe 100 metres before you are in the Maximapark for sports or a walk. And on a summer day, I go for a picnic to the beach of Haarrijnseplas.
By car, I’m on the highway in an instant, or at Utrecht central station by train. LeidscheRijn itself is developing rapidly, with more amenities added every year to make living, working and life more pleasant.
Various households live in the complex; small families, expats, starters and elderly. The complex meets many needs. District heating (stadsverwarming) is connected, there is no gas connection. The VvE is working on plans to install solar panels in the near future and it is also possible to have an electric charging station installed in the closed car park. The flat is well insulated, including HR++ glass against both heat loss and noise from outside. Moreover, the residual heat from the businesses below my flat ensures low heating costs.
The kitchen is relatively large for the apartment, but I really like that because it allows me to cook extensively. Because all the doors are glass and can be opened, it also gives the apartment a spacious feeling. I had the walk-in wardrobe custom-made and it is efficiently laid out.
The flat is connected to the communal courtyard garden, which makes this flat feel even more home-sweet-home to me.
In the morning and early afternoon, the sun shines into the apartment, making it wonderfully sheltered for drinking a cup of coffee in the sun and having lunch there on Sundays. I have no privacy concerns here, as hardly anyone uses this communal yard. Around the lounge set with boules court, by the way, you have sun all day.
The reason I am moving out here is that I am moving in with my girlfriend and saying goodbye to the flat. I’m embarking on a new adventure with a DIY house from the 19th century. I wish the new owner to enjoy the flat as much as I have enjoyed it.”
This apartment complex completed in 2006 is located parallel to the Vleutensebaan on the edge of Het Zand district in LeidscheRijn, Utrecht. The neighbourhood is very popular and especially loved by starters, elderly and expats on the housing market.
