King Willem-Alexander received the Patriarch of Constantinople in his very own private living room at Villa Eikenhorst. The picture shows a lot of the interior:

The mobile cabin that the king will temporarily get in his garden will contain a hall, two reception rooms and a meeting room. Quite shabby, let's hope he will never receive foreign visitors there.

The article is a bit tendentious if you ask me. "The empty palace in Amsterdam". I think the author will know that the Royal Palace in Amsterdam is in fact in use as a museum and totally unfit for living or as office.

When the Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima moved into Villa de Eikenhorst, it looked like this and like this but now, some 12-13 years later, the building seems eaten by green plants.... Look at the situation now...

I can see that the greenkeepers are carefully cutting the ivy away from the roof and the woodwork, but I associate ivy with decay. It is hell of a work to prevent the ivy eating your woodwork and I think it is not exactly good for the house...

According to this article Can Ivy Damage Brick or Wood on Your Home? | Today's Homeowner
ivy can be beneficial to brick houses as it keeps the house cool and walls dry (Holland is VERY wet!). In that the Dutch know something about gardens, I would think that the decision to grow ivy on Eikenhorst's walls is well considered.

We may assume that the King has plenty of gardeners to control the ivy. My parents had ivy as well and it was a never-ending fight to control the green getting hold of the woodwork and the rooftop...


When the King moves out of Eikenhorst, I hope he has a decent maintenance plan because it lasts only one year of neglect to get the house completely over-coverd...

Prince Pieter-Christiaan & family will also be moving to the estate. He told this to magazine 'Prive'.

I have this idea that if you have any plant on the walls of your house, you will have a lot of insects inside the house, really not my cup of tea!
Whe they will move out of the estate?

It is actually a very environment-friendly solution to isolate your house: warm in winter and cool in summer, to give birds ample of possibilities to build nests and ach ja... insects... just place insect screens...



A sustainable house with green walls and roof

Appartments in Mannheim (Germany)

Indoor green walls in an office in The Hague (Netherlands)

Villa Eikenhorst in 2001

Villa Eikenhorst in 2015

The King will move to Huis ten Bosch in 2018/2019, so is the expectation. On Friday 12 November 2015 the Rijksvastgoedbedrijf (Government Real Estate Agency) has decided to grant the renovation of the palace to the construction company J.P. van Eesteren / TBI.

This company was one of the inscriptors into the public tender for the renovation of the palace. Now it has been announced that this company will remove all old plumbings, floorcovers, ceilings and sanitary. When this is done to the satisfaction of the Rijksvastgoedbesdrijf and with respect for the monumental surroundings, the company may 'win' the rest of the renovation project.

The costs of the renovation of Huis ten Bosch will be around 60 million Euro (65 million US Dollars). In this amount the stunning Oranjesael is not included: that has been separately renovated an few years ago, for an equally staggering amount of money.
