The richly wooded estate is centrally located in the Netherlands near the city of Utrecht. The striking castle is in excellent condition and has for centuries been encircled by a moat, provided with access by a decorative brick bridge, and is surrounded by a verdant park in the 19th century Landscape Style, which includes playful areas of water.
The country house includes more than five hectares of land and two beautiful coachhouses, a historic teahouse and a generous barn. These features make the Rijnhuizen estate an exquisite and green oasis.
The monumental and representative castle finds its origin in the middle ages. Thanks to the thoroughly renovation in the Golden Age the current condition of the castle is quite stately. The interior is enriched with beautiful wall paintings which are from great heritage value.. The residence’s showpiece is the Alexander Room which presumably dates from the 18th century and is named after the unique wall paintings showing the exploits of Alexander the Great. The Garden Room also features beautiful wall paintings from the 18th century.
Historical country seat with a vibrant future
The impressive exterior and luxurious interior of Rijnhuizen Castle combine well with comfortable modern facilities in its contemporary office and living spaces. The exceptional potential of the grand buildings dispersed over the property and the expansive green grounds provide an unprecedented opportunity for any number of developments.
The Dutch government also compensates owners of Grade 1 listed heritage buildings, such as allowing tax deductions on maintenance costs. The property also meets the criteria of the National Landscapes Act. An application for inclusion has been submitted. This means the estate would benefit from various tax advantages, such as exemption from property transfer taxes and real estate taxes for the unbuilt areas of the estate, and partial exemption from gift and inheritance taxes.
