Background information:
This square farmhouse was originally built around 1865, but since then it has been changed and renewed several times. This farm had originally 1 house and some stables. Later a part of the stables was also converted into a house. Currently it has 21 rooms, of which 8 are bedrooms. The agricultural function has already expired at many square farms. The buildings are now used for a variety of different purposes. In this specific case as a living space with a practice room, shed and business space. Around the building we find various paved areas interspersed with gardens. The courtyard is largely paved and locally provided with green borders. Square farms are common in Dutch and Belgian Limburg, the Belgian province of Liège, and also in the west of Germany.

The building has masonry walls in various brickwork connections. Characteristic of the square farmhouses are the various saddle roofs, in this case covered with red Dutch roof tiles. Some of the windows are equipped with shutters. In the past, the farms on the outer sides had shutters almost everywhere, or sometimes not even windows, in order to be able to keep out unwanted people. In the current state, most of the window frames are painted in white or green. Some doors are made of hardwood and lacquered.
