Former Mission House at Driehuizerkerkweg 123 in Driehuis
The property was originally built (1924) as a school, boarding house and mission house. In 1973, the navy’s social medical service took ownership of the building, and continued to use it until September 2010.
Building and the Environment
The property is located on the southwestern edge of the town centre of Driehuis, within the municipality of Velsen, to the southeast of IJmuiden. The town of Driehuis is surrounded by different types of landscapes, including a rural area to the south, sand dunes to the west (part of the Zuid-Kennemerland National Park) and suburban districts to the north and east. Driehuis consists largely of villa-style buildings. Partly due to its location, the heart of Driehuis can be described as a rural/small-scale residential environment. There is an abundance of green space on the site and in the immediate vicinity.
The property includes several buildings and two bunkers. The main building, which has a chapel built onto it, is a municipal monument. To the north of the main building, there are further secondary buildings including a barracks building dating from 2000 and a further building that houses a workshop, garages and offices, dating from 1990. To the south of the main building there is a personnel bunker and to the north there is a small connecting bunker.
Road access to and from the Haarlem ring road is good, via the Van den Vondellaan main road. The train station is located 350 metres away in a straight line, and provides twice hourly train services towards both Uitgeest and Haarlem. There is also a bus stop for an express service to the centre of IJmuiden and Haarlem nearby. This service will commence in late 2016.
