Havezate De Havixhorst - De Schiphorst

N 52.6743366 / E 6.2590113

What the name Havixhorst stands for is not entirely clear. Have stands for possession, horst for a height in the landscape, but also for the high nest of the hawk. With this, the name can refer to a house on a high ground, but also to a hawk's nest. Jan Arent Godert de Vos van Steenwijk, committed by the States General, had the current square house and the associated houses built. For almost three hundred years, until 1956, the owner has been the De Vos van Steenwijk family. Eventually, in 1981, it came into the possession of Stichting Het Drentse Landschap (Drenthe Landscape Foundation). The complex was restored and a geometric (herb) garden and sculpture garden with figurative sculpture from the 20th century were laid out. Since then, the main house of De Havixhorst has been operated as a luxury hotel-restaurant.
