King Willem-Alexander received the Patriarch of Constantinople in his very own private living room at Villa Eikenhorst. The picture shows a lot of the interior:

The mobile cabin that the king will temporarily get in his garden will contain a hall, two reception rooms and a meeting room. Quite shabby, let's hope he will never receive foreign visitors there.

The article is a bit tendentious if you ask me. "The empty palace in Amsterdam". I think the author will know that the Royal Palace in Amsterdam is in fact in use as a museum and totally unfit for living or as office.

When the Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima moved into Villa de Eikenhorst, it looked like this and like this but now, some 12-13 years later, the building seems eaten by green plants.... Look at the situation now...

I can see that the greenkeepers are carefully cutting the ivy away from the roof and the woodwork, but I associate ivy with decay. It is hell of a work to prevent the ivy eating your woodwork and I think it is not exactly good for the house...

According to this article Can Ivy Damage Brick or Wood on Your Home? | Today's Homeowner
ivy can be beneficial to brick houses as it keeps the house cool and walls dry (Holland is VERY wet!). In that the Dutch know something about gardens, I would think that the decision to grow ivy on Eikenhorst's walls is well considered.

We may assume that the King has plenty of gardeners to control the ivy. My parents had ivy as well and it was a never-ending fight to control the green getting hold of the woodwork and the rooftop...


When the King moves out of Eikenhorst, I hope he has a decent maintenance plan because it lasts only one year of neglect to get the house completely over-coverd...
