Towering Timepieces: 6 Homes with Clock Towers


Castle Heerlijkheid Loenen is set within an idyllic rural landscape on the banks of the River Waal. Listed as a Dutch National Monument, this former hunting estate includes the elegant 18th-century manor house, 19th-century coach house, stables, an orangery, outbuildings, and verdant parkland abutting the river and protected woodland. The property was extensively restored in keeping with the original 18th-century design. The white-stucco façade catches the eye with its black shuttered sash windows and handsome mansard roof and matching cupola topped with a turret clock. The interiors also retain their 18th-century character with the addition of contemporary creature comforts, such as insulated walls, radiant heated stone floors, security system, and new electrical systems. There are seven en suite bedrooms, a formal living room and dining room, a conservatory, two offices, a large loft, and a lower-level chef’s kitchen and wine cellar. The two-story coach house has two en suite bedrooms, a living room, and an orangery with a professional catering kitchen. Two barns on the property were also updated for events space. The grounds include lawns, herb/flower gardens, terraces, a bamboo gazebo, various fruit trees, woodland, and a parking court. An adjacent meadow is a habitat for deer.
