Description of the area
The villa is located in the Bisschopsdreef. The drive itself is part of the protection as a monument recognized by heritage flanders since 11-04-2016.
At the entrance of the Bishop's drift (side Polderstraat) leading to the Castle Rooigem there are two welcome linden. It concerns Dutch linden planted around 1823. On both sides of the welcome linden is a closure of natural stone wings connected by chains, one of which is dated 1763.
The drift was built in 1762, forming the access road to the former bishop's former residence (since 1720). The driveway with triple rows of oak trees joined the formal 18th-century garden of the Rooigem castle. The axis of the drift runs directly from the castle to the Belfort and the tower of the now-disappeared bishop church of Sint-Donau.
From the construction in 1762 the drive was used as a public access road. Between 1835 and 1948, the Visart and the Pier of Pierpont were sequentially sequenced according to the then castle inhabitants. From 1948, the dreef gets her original name back. On construction, the driveway was cranked by triple rows of trees, dating from the 17th century drilling boroughs, the outermost rows had to deviate from the deployment since the 1950s.
