Country Estate Groenendaal and Bosbeek - Heemstede
In 1631, the land speculator Jan Lubbertsz Busch sold a homestead to Hendrick Coymans. His son Caspar sold the property in 1661 to Edmond Schardinel, who named it Rustmeer, because of the view of the Haarlemmermeer. In 1690 Cornelis Bors van Waveren bought it and merged it with Meervliet. He demolishes the house and calls the new building Bosbeek. Later he added the country estate Overthoorn.
John Hope, who already owned Groenendaal, bought Bosbeek in 1784 but died before the purchase was completed. His widow, who went through with the purchase, demolished the house on Groenendaal and converted Bosbeek into a holiday home for the English family. Between 1784 and 1913, it was a single property until the municipality of Heemstede purchased it and separated the property in 1913. Groenendaal becomes a public walking forest and Bosbeek is sold in 1915. Nowadays, Groenendaal is a restaurant.
