Country house Mariendaal - Oosterbeek
The property is situated on the slope of the Veluwezoom and has large differences in height. Heights and valleys, which also explains the valley in Mariendaal. After the Reformation the monastery fell into disrepair and was demolished. The land was then used for agricultural purposes, until the regent Johan Brantsen (1699-1774) from Arnhem bought it and built a country house. Through marriage and inheritance, Mariendaal then came into the hands of the Van Eck family. In 1857, this family enlarged and rebuilt the house to its current appearance. The surrounding grounds were also embellished during this period. In 1865, for example, a beech bowerceau was planted north of the jumping head: the Green Bedstee.
