Rheebruggen country estate - Uffelte

N 52.7853224 / E 6.2851358

Rheebruggen estate is located near Uffelte. It is an estate situated on boulder clay and sand hills surrounded by wet greenlands. The estate brings a contrast to its surroundings: where the surrounding landscape is mainly open meadows, Rheebruggen is instead a more enclosed and vegetated area.

The name refers to the stream that runs across the estate. Rhee or Rede is in fact a medieval word for 'watercourse'. The history of the estate therefore goes way back: the oldest reports of the area 'Rederbroec' date back to 1382.

In the years that followed, the estate was mainly inhabited by noble families. There also used to be a Huis Rheebruggen, a so-called havezate, but it was demolished in 1835. A number of sandstone ornaments from the manor have been applied to the façade of the farmhouse with house number 8. Thus the noble history is still commemorated.
