These picture has been taken too Wippelgem Evergem, a small village on 8 km of Ghent and 8 km of the Netherlands border.
This is the second picture of this castle, but this not it castle but the stables, coach house and home gardeners (now brasserie).

The stables, coach house and home gardeners (now brasserie).
The stables are very traditionally made from precious wood and solid finish. They were used for storing the row and carriage horses. In the stable is a counting system which is connected to a funnel in which oats is higher. The ration could thus be dosed per horse.

Besides the stables we have the coach, which later became the garage for the car.
At the coach and half it was built in the ladies pavilion, which unfortunately disappeared in the 1990s. It was a small sitting area on the water, with benches built into the barn and a present, semi-covered terrace. A gossip and crafts corner for the women.
Adjoining to the stables is the home gardeners. It must be clear who lived there. The house had a small yard with storage spaces and rabbit hutches.
Adjoining the home gardeners and above the stables were the rooms for the auxiliary gardeners. Striking was that the gardener could open the door to the residence of his helpers, but not vice versa. The gardener was responsible for the management of orchards and large walled kitchen garden.
