The burial vault of the owners of the estate is located in the Kelderbos. This cemetery is located about 400 meters southwest of the main building. There are also some individual gravestones near the crypt. Members of the Raedt and Raedt van Oldenbarnevelt family are buried in the crypt.

The entire complex with the country house, some farms belonging to the estate, the garden and the burial vault are declared as national monument.
