Residential Care Home Walgaerde is a free-standing country house and is a local council monument situated in the upmarket district of Trompenberg in Hilversum. The existing villa will be completely rebuilt in 2016 and adapted to the needs of 15 residents who wish to spend their later years in comfortable surroundings. Walgaerde was designed by J.W. Hanrath and built in 1909.
From 1900 to 1920, Hanrath designed many country houses in the traditional style, following the example of English country houses of the time. Hanrath was very important in the field of building villas in Hilversum (and also in the rest of the country). He was also one of the major influences in building styles during the 1920s and 1930s.
In 2009, due to its particular historical and cultural value, Walgaerde was awarded local government monument status.
The residential care is handled by Domus Magnus and in 2016 Aedificia acquired the property as an end investment.
