Villa Rozendael

Villa Rozendael in Melick is a villa in eclectic style that was built in 1881 by a certain Henri Spielmans, brewer and gin distiller in Roermond.
The villa is situated in a park-like garden with courtyard and is special because of the architectural integrity of the exterior and the architectural-historical rarity.

The stately and with lots of ornaments provided villa and its outbuildings have a turbulent history behind it.
In the course of two centuries on the site of the present villa other buildings already stood, like a distillery, a farm / brewery and a tavern.
In 1881 Henri Spielmans bought the entire area and the buildings. He breaks down the farm partially and builds the existing villa.
In 1884, he beautifies a different part of the farm and makes it a depot for his carriages and horses.
In 1910 the building became a small monastery of the Sisters of St. Odiliƫnberg.
Thereafter the, regionally well-known, general practitioner Dr. De Jong lived in it for years and had here his practice.

Nowadays the house is in private ownership.

In 2009, the coach house (in the background on the photo above) has been restored and became another destination.
A number of beams that were too bad for reuse, were thereby released.
These have been applied, among others, in the Petasuslamp
