Chateau Nottebahm (Belgium) 1908ish/present

  1. Villa Nottebohm This characteristic house is a typical example of an early 20th-century country house that could be found in the forest-rich surrounding area of Antwerp, Belgium. It was built as a country retreat for the wealthy Nottebohm family. The family occasionally visited it during the holidays. The villa was located on the outskirts of a small village. Surrounded by forest the atmosphere was very serene. This changed when the villa was temporarily seized by the German army during the Second World War. Luckily the villa survived the war and remained in one piece. The family didn't return to the villa though. It eventually was rented out and turned into a hotel with a restaurant.

  2. Such a weird design, as if they randomly kept slapping more towers n stuff on through the years

  3. Not too different from old country homes here in the US. Back in the day as your family grew, you slapped an expansion onto the house. Have an older home in the town nearby where the living room is the original 1 room cabin. It was originally built in the 1850s.

  4. Wow. That is really sad. I get it though, those huge old homes can be money pits and if you don’t have the money to keep it up you just don’t have the money.
