Landgoed Ter Horst is an estate near Wassenaar and is part of Landgoed de Horsten. The first buildings were a kind of castle that it was sometimes believed to have been built by Philips van Wassenaar around 1200. In 1393 this complex was destroyed, then rebuilt and destroyed again in 1420. A simple rebuilding followed. Around 1635 the building was converted by Reinier Pauw (1591–1676) into a grand country house in Dutch Renaissance style, surrounded by a geometrically constructed park. Later owners expanded the park layout. Frederik Sluysken built the coach house in 1701 and Iman Cau added the Orangery in 1767. The heirs Cau sold the complex in 1838 to Frederik Prins der Nederlanden. Prince Frederik had the old building rebuilt between 1863 and 1876 as a neo -gothic hunting lodge, designed by J. W. F. Mouton. After more than ten years of vacancy, Huis ter Horst was sold in mid -2019.
