Wilhelmsberg, with its almost 150 years of history, and its 22 rooms with a total area of 700-square-meters, is undoubtedly one of Gothenburg’s truly unique private homes. The house is located on a huge beautiful garden plot with an area of 3,378-square-meters, with bushes, trees and fountains, as well as a grand four-car garage. In 1865, Julius Lindström, a wholesaler of snuff and tobacco, bought the property from James Dickson and built a summer residence in the Renaissance style, inspired by a castle in Normandy. He retained the services of renowned city architect, Victor von Gegerfeldt and the building was completed around 1868. Lindström also beautified the park in the style of an English garden, and adorned it with fountains and statues. Lindström was an important man in Gothenburg, and at times was a city councilman and member of parliament, as well as being known as a public benefactor.
