Country estate Waterland - Velsen-Zuid
For the construction of the North Sea Canal, this area is called the Hollands Arcadie. Along the disappeared Wijkermeer there were dozens of estates of which Waterland is one. The present house has a courtyard as its predecessor, but only a design by the garden architect Adriaan Speelman from 1728 remains. It is not known when the courtyard will be demolished. The present house was built in two phases, with the central part dating from 1742 and the two side wings dating from 1761-1765. Waterland was owned by the Boreel family between 1768 and 1956. Jacob Boreel bought it in 1799, while his parents lived in Beeckestijn. Later family members often owned Beeckestijn, Meervliet and Waterland at the same time. At this moment the estate is in use as a bed and breakfast, party center and meeting location.
