Castle in 17th century style Not only the exterior was given a "new" jacket , but also the inside . Merghelynck stowed the building full of real and fake 17th -century furniture and other curiosities . He also had a beautiful French -English castle park construction . Everything is there today so when , as in 1908, when Merghelynck died .
