a.s.r. acquires the country estate Junne from Delta Lloyd, which was acquired by NN Group in 2017. Landgoed Junne is located in the municipality of Ommen in the province of Overijssel and, with an area of approximately 1047 hectares, it is one of the larger private country estates in the Netherlands. The acquisition price amounts € 25,25 million.
Country estate Junne consists for more than 70% (740 hectares) of woodland. 22% (230 hectares) of the land is agricultural land and the remaining part of the estate consists of nature conservation and recreation areas. Landgoed Junne is part of an extensive nature conservation area intensively used for recreational purposes. There are cycling and hiking trails through the area, such as the Pieterpad.
The country estate has many cultural-historical elements. Characteristic are the farmhouses, the agricultural peat moors, the village square, wooded banks, sand drifts, moorlands and special timber plantings. Farms, (holiday) homes and a sawmill are also located on the country estate. Junne is known for its highly varied standing timber, with the Scots pine occupying a dominant position. In addition to leasing agricultural land, a.s.r. will also generate revenues from the sale of timber and the renting out of holiday homes.
