The Estate Eyckenstein lies just east of Maartensdijk ( municipality De Bilt , Netherlands ) along the Dorpsweg . The house has 182 acres of contiguous land, including farms located elsewhere, the total area 394 hectares. The history of the estate begins at the beginning of the 17th century . At that time there was a farmhouse with gables . Gradually it expanded to its current home Eyckenstein with the characteristic four columns. Eyckenstein is privately occupied. Eyckenstein is located in the low Pijnenburg , surrounded by some other houses: west Rusthoven and further away to the east Rover Stein . Since 1969 are Eyck Stein, the surrounding park and several other buildings on the monument list . The estate consists mainly of forest (mostly open), but also from fields and pastures. Immediately north of the mansion is the park area of approximately twelve acres, which in 1882-1883 was designed by the famous Dutch architect Leonard Anthony Springer . Probably the design built around 1900 and around 1920 it would have been the most beautiful park. The estate is at an region called the Utrecht Ridge and in the future will also be part of the The National Park .

This is an overview of GooiVechtstreek

Het Gooi is the area around Hilversum in the centre of the Netherlands. It is a slightly hilly area characterised by its green landscape, its historical charm, the wealth of its inhabitants, and its villas. Het Gooi is known in the Netherlands as the home of the rich and famous.starting around 1500, and reaching a peak in the 17th century, sand was quarried in the area for the expansion of Amsterdam. As a result a number of waterways were dug in 's-Graveland, Naarden and Bussum. The canal system and the arrival of a canal boat system connecting the area to Amsterdam helped the area to grow further economically. Hilversum developed into a centre for the production of wool and textiles.With the laying of canals, and later the railways, wealthy people from Amsterdam and Utrecht began to build grand country homes in the area. Affluent neighbourhoods (e.g. the Bussum neighbourhood of 't Spiegel) developed. As a result of the railway between Amsterdam and Amersfoort in 1874, Hilversum and Bussum were the first to grow. In 1892, after the tram line connecting Laren, Blaricum and Huizen was laid, these towns also developed. In the 1950s the construction of motorways (the A1 and the A27) continued this process.The broadcast industry in Het Gooi developed after the NSF factory (Nederlandse Seintoestellen Fabriek, Dutch Broadcasting-equipment Factory) was built in Hilversum in 1918. It expanded from Hilversum to the other towns nearby. The first television broadcast in the Netherlands was from Bussum. Today the Netherlands Public Broadcasting has offices and studios all over the area.Het Gooi has become heavily populated. Because of the nature in the area and its historic charm, the villages have become attractive to the affluent, including retirees. The population is relatively older and there are many old-age homes. The original inhabitants of the area have been submerged by the flood of newcomers. The local dialect that used to be spoken here has virtually disappeared.
