Osthoff House

The Osthoff house is the oldest house in Dülmen . It is the only remaining building of the former Osthoff manor . The estate was acquired in 1727 by Baroness Anna Maria von Landsberg. She is also considered the builder of the manor house.

The cellar is unusually high and has a groined vault . The brick house shows the typical baroque style of the 18th century. Until the First World War , Haus Osthoff was a destination with a beautiful garden and high forest. After the Second World War it was used as a private residence until the 1960s. After that, however, it was abandoned as a listed ruin and fell into disrepair. At the beginning of the 21st century it was completely renovated and used as a monument .

In 2002 the Osthoff house became the headquarters of Designlager . The planning of the open spaces around the building, in the style of a baroque, strictly formal garden, was carried out in 2003 by the architect Harald Deilmann from Münster together with Franz Kösters on behalf of the owners at the time .

In summer 2016, the Osthoff house received the monument plaque of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Since May 1, 2019, Haus Osthoff has been owned by the Dülmen entrepreneur family Juliane and Timur Keskin and their children.

In extensive renovation and renovation measures, the Keskin family has restored an original connection between the historic vaulted cellar and the main living area. Today the house is a residence of Kes: Kin Invest GmbH and provides office space for this.
