House of the gatekeeper at Kasteel Geldrop in Geldrop, Netherlands. This little building is said to be from the 17th century. The Geldrop Castle itself sits along the Kleine Dommel and is currently used for weddings and other events.

I was interested to see the house in more detail, so I opened the image in an application that would magnify the image. It appears that the bricks on the side of the building are laid in an impossible manner. Something is wrong. I don’t know what.
Search for images in Google using ‘bakstenen in kruisverband’ wich is Dutch or Flemish, or ‘flemish masonry bond’ wich is the English denomination.
The building is a servants house form about 1900. The small building in the back is a generator building from 1920. It provided the castle with home-produced electricity.
