A small background story:
The particular outside staircase inspired the poet Ton Gruijter:
A visitor who does not know what to choose
Stairs or door or fence perhaps
Who wanders until he loses himself
Might never get the resident in sight
Because all is different en nothing fits together
a puzzle it is this Tolgaarders property
People pass each other for hours unintentionally
Sometimes it even makes a Vreeswijks newspaper header
Nice to see but without purpose
A staircase without entrance drives people crazy
It's in its name you'll find some sense
Come unprepared will yet take its toll
