Groot Engelenburg Country estate - Brummen
There is no clarity about the origin or meaning of the name. The 'burg' will have more to do with castle or fortification than with mountain or height. More than a thousand year old oak pile foundations have probably been found. Nevertheless, the core of the house dates from the 17th century. In 1828 it was converted into a neoclassical style house and plastered. The house is on a moated island with a driveway facing the house. The conversion to the landscape style, under the garden architect Isaek Hendrik Jacob van Lunteren, results in an excavation of the straight moat and an extension to a water feature behind the house. The park is now a golf course.
