The Huis te Manpad is an historical villa and former summer home of Jacob van Lennep in Heemstede, the Netherlands; bordered by the Leidsevaart canal, the Manpadslaan, and the Herenweg. It neighbors the estate of Hartekamp, famed for the gardens described by Linnaeus. Both estates still have trees and other flora dating from that period.
The Haarlem archives have material about the estate dating back to 1558. The current main building dates from 1630. It was restored in 1720 when the gardens received an overhaul . In 1767 the villa came into the possession of the Van Lennep family, who owned it up to 1953. In 1945 it was again restored by Monumentenzorg. Thanks to the loving care of the Van Lennep's, the gardens were almost intact in the form they had been in Linnaeus's day, and it is currently being restored.
