In 1358 a farm stood on the site where Graeterhof is now situated. Up until the French period the farm had been in the possession of the Catholic Church for more than three hundred years. In the first half of the 19th century, Graeterhof became the property of the Strens family and remained under its ownership until 1967. The Strens family carried out major renovations, the most significant being the addition of a hunting lodge to the front of the building, in the middle of the 19th century. It was one of Dr. Pierre Cuypers' earlier works.


At the beginning of the 20th century another major renovation took place, this time designed by the architect Frans Dupont from Roermond. During this phase the hunting lodge acquired the chalet- like appearance it still has today. After having been used as a hotel and restaurant for thirty-four years, Graeterhof was purchased by the current owners in 2001 . In the same year it was designated a listed national monument. In 2002 and 2003 the building underwent extensive restoration and currently serves as a residential property again.

The manor house, named Graeterhof, is located between the villages of Swalmen and Boukoul. Swalmen lies between Roermond and Venlo and is bordered on the West by the river Maas and on the East by Germany. To the East of Swalmen there is a vast forest which stretches across the border to adjoin Brüggenerwald and Elmpterwald. It is an excellent area for walking and cycling.

The manor house is, for the most part, built in a T shape and is made up of three floors, predominantly, under a hipped roof with smaller saddle roofs, and flat roofs. The property is brick built with a rustic rendered facade and a grey cement plinth. The rear walls are in the style of cross bond brickwork and are painted white. The windows are mainly rectangular in shape, some of which have shutters with ventilation louvres.
