Well Castle

Well Castle, locally known as Slot Well or Huis van Malsen, lies next to the village of Well, in the province of Gelderland in the Netherlands. It is not to be confused with its namesake; Well Castle in the province of Limburg, also in the Netherlands.

Well Castle was probably built in the beginning of the 14th century as a rectangular tower house. It was possibly built by Nicolaes van Malsen, who was mentioned in 1326 as a vassal of the Count of Gelre. Somewhere during the 14th or 15th century the castle was enlarged with a wing at its west side.

In 1672 the castle was badly damaged by invading French troops.

The round corner tower and several other elements were added to the castle during the 19th century to give the castle a more castellated look.

In 2016 Well Castle was sold with an asking price of 3.250.000 euros. Here is a link to the real estate site on which it was advertised with lots of beautiful pictures, including interior ones: funda.nl.

At present Well Castle is a private residence and can thus not be visited. It can however easily be seen from the public road. A nice little castle, must be great to live there.
