Remaining of an Old House near an Old Dutch Cemetery at Candi Baru

This remaining old house looks inhabited for long times, but it was becoming prominent object near a crossroad today known as Jl. Letjen S.Parman Street and Gajah Mungkur Street. The house is surrounding with large open courtyard.

The north side of the house directly faces Jl. Letjen S. Parman Street, a street also known as Dr. De Vogelweg during Dutch Colonial era. The east side of the house directly faces a spacious and lush city park. Some notes mention that this city park known as Tillema Plein during Dutch Colonial Era. The south side of the house indirectly faces to the Ereveld, the Dutch Cemetery site.

A high brick tower that is situated at north-west side, directly faces to the main street of formerly Dr De Vogelweg. This tower protrudes high at house's corner side in front of clay roof structures at second floor. I think the tower will allow someone to have wide open view to the main street.Somebody can always have nice viewing to this house both from main street or from the park nearby.
