The Theresiachapel, belonging to the Baest Estate, was established in 1938 as an expression of gratitude for the recovery of the then seriously ill seven-year-old son of the estate's residents, the Van de Mortel-de la Court couple. The chapel is dedicated to Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, who herself experienced a miraculous healing at a young age.

The small rectangular chapel is located at the beginning of Doctor Jan van de Mortellaan. Behind the wrought-iron gate, in front of the semicircular entrance, a relief can be found on a basalt stone floor bearing a commemorative inscription.

The small rectangular chapel is located at the beginning of Doctor Jan van de Mortellaan. Behind the wrought-iron gate, in front of the semicircular entrance, a relief can be found on a basalt stone floor bearing a commemorative inscription.

In June 2021, the chapel underwent restoration, and the bricked-up windows were replaced with two new windows designed by the glass artist Marc Mulders. The windows represent morning and evening light and are constructed using spectrum glass, antique mouth-blown glass, and überfang etched glass. Paintings in enamel are applied to the glass. The western window depicts the grapevine with the All-Seeing Eye, referring to the family history of the current owner of the Baest Estate, Veronica van de Mortel-Henkell: the Henkell wine house. The eastern Tulpenbed window symbolizes the residents' care for nature on the Baest Estate.
