The historic Leeuwenwoning estate. The origins of this former farmstead date back to 1553. The historic land records show that the first occupant was Cornelis Jan Harmenszoon Cassenaers, an ‘Ambachtsheer’ (or rural mayor) responsible for monitoring water levels, mills and fishing rights for the Kralingerpolder. From the 17th century onwards, wealthy city dwellers would travel by coach to their countryside retreats, which were a major status symbol at that time. Nowadays this attractive historic estate is located on the banks of the leafy Oostgaag, a meandering watercourse that winds through the rural outskirts of the municipality of Maasland. The plot was accorded the status of a protected national monument back in 1966.
