Description

In the heart of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug lies the Leusderheide, where vast moors and open sandy plains alternate with deciduous and coniferous forest. The Leusderheide has two ecoducts: ecoduct Leusderheide and ecoduct Treeker Wissel, which allow animals to safely cross busy roads so that they can enlarge their territory. Badgers, lizards and foxes, among others, make frequent use of the crossings. Because it is also used as a military training ground, the Leusderheide has retained a large part of its original appearance. Hidden among all the greenery are beautiful estates, such as Quatre Bras. Nearly 2000 acres of private property stretch out before you here. The estate mainly consists of forests with meadows and fields on the eastern edge. Since the construction of the N224 and the N227, the estate has been intersected by these roads. Another beautiful estate (Maarsbergen) is dominated by a castle-like country house in Maarsbergen, which was built in 1660 in the neo-Gothic style.
