Villa Maarheeze (Rijksstraatweg 675)
Guided tours every hour. Registration on site or via this website.
Although Villa Maarheeze is mostly known for housing Dutch intelligence services, it was originally intended for private habitation. In 1914 G.A. van Putten bought a part of the estate Oud Clingendael and commissioned the young architect Co Brandes for the design of the house. Brandes collaborated with garden architect Dirk Tersteeg. Brandes considered house and garden to be one, which can clearly be seen here. The house is lifted above the surrounding gardens. They are connected by a retaining wall, stairs and a terrace with a pond.
