Castle Duinlust - Overveen
Jan Gijsen Middelkoop acquired land here in 1783, built a house with a vegetable garden and cultivated grain. Around 1810 the Haarlem court clerk Jan W. Druyvesteyn transformed it into a country estate. Commissioned by architect Thomas Witlam Atkinson, he built a villa of which the orangery remains.
In 1828 Johanna J. Borski-van de Velde acquires Duinlust. Through her son Willem, her granddaughter Johanna Jacoba inherited the estate in 1881. She commissioned architect Constantijn Muyskens to build a new house, which would be equipped with modern comfort such as a hydraulic lift, but an ice cellar would still be built in the park. The German architect C. Eduard Petzold designed the garden with numerous greenhouses and orchards.
