Driving around, my hands on the wheel but my eyes exploring, I saw this beautiful house just outside a small village. It was built on the hillside and we couldn’t get near it while we were in the car.
This abandoned farm was spot during a road trip in August 2015. This urbex location is nearby a beautiful castle. Unfortunately that castle is not abandoned, so this was all we deserved that day.
Baroque castle built between 1728 and 1737, on the site of a fortress from the 15th century.
The castle domain Nottebohm comprises an area of over 58 hectares, within the center an abandoned villa, built in 1908-1909 by the family Nottebohm from Antwerp. Château Nottebohm served as a country retreat for the family and was regularly inhabited until 1943.
This abandoned castle with chapel was founded in 1876 by the wealthy Antwerp shipowner Frans Huger. It is located in a park with century-old beech and chestnut trees. Today nothing remains of the beautiful place that nineteenth-century Goorhof was under the previous owners.
