ARENDSNEST
We can find the first traces of this domain back in the year 1348 when there was a Hof ter Haghe and in 1447 a farm Ter Haghe. W. van Ymmerseele constructed in 1569 a with a moat surrounded stone house and a farm.
The domain was inherited in 1650 by Jehan Dorco and Camillo Dorchi. Shortly after they inherited the domain they built the castle. It was bought in 1754 by P. Serruys who restored the castle. The largest part of the domain was sold in 1936 to a real estate company. Between 1929 and 1933 there was boarding school in the castle.
Castle Arendsnest is private property but can be viewed from the public road.
