Cocooned into the richness of nature & history
The Annex is nestled into over 14.000 square meters of unobstructed natural land in North Limburg. Formerly a living farm, (woonboederij in Dutch), it was lovingly re-built in 1968 embracing the unique nature surrounding the property. The surrounding protected farmland of the local Baroness spans over 50 acres. Home to a breathtaking monumental Sweet Chestnut (Castanea sativa) tree, gracing the land for over 200 years.
Guests are cocooned into complete privacy and vast nature.
This historic property recently received a conscious transformation into The Annex. Maintaining the original mid-century design detail and thoughtfulness used to build it, The Annex continues to embrace its history while writing the pages of a new captivating chapter.
