Groot Engelenburg Country estate - Brummen
The origin or meaning of the name is not clear. The 'burg' is more likely to have to do with a castle or a fortification than with a mountain or a height. Oak pile foundations have been found that are probably more than a thousand years old. Nevertheless, the core of the house dates from the 17th century.
In 1828, it was rebuilt and whitewashed in the Neo-Classical style. The house stands on a moat island with a driveway facing the house. The conversion to the landscape style, under the garden architect Isaek Hendrik Jacob van Lunteren, results in a digging of the straight ditch and an extension to a pond behind the house. The park is now a golf course. The castle now houses a hotel with a restaurant.
