Abdijhoeve (Abbey farm)

Kelchterhoefstraat 5, Houthalen

Kelchterhoef was a foundation of the Floreffe abbey with the probable date of foundation being 1228.

In 1969 the old farmhouse was rebuilt and currently serves as a restaurant on the Kelchterhoef estate.

The grid format of the farmhouse underlines the importance of this monument, as the usual farmhouse form in Kempen only has a simple long facade structure.
