’Buitenplaats Grotenhof’ dates from the 2nd half of the 18th century and was also called ’Buitenplaats Knappenhof’ but already in the 16th century there was a farmstead here which later developed into a manor farm. After the house was demolished in 1793, it was referred to as ’the Grootenhof’ country estate. ’Grotenhof’ is sold and rebuilt several times and in the 1st half of the 19th century Grotenhof comes into the possession of a bulb grower.
The current villa was built in 2009 and the garage building was built with reuse of the original building materials of the old bulb barn from 1900.
