Ditlev Christian Ernst Eltzholtz built this home for his family, located in Ringe, Funen, in the summer of 1886 and the adjoining seed house in 1887. His seed business continued to grow, with his two sons working hard to get orders from local farmers, and in 1891 he built the second seed house at a cost of 5000 Kroner. In the new house the room in the attic was used as a cleaning room where all the cleaning machines were located. Ditlev built the small house just south of the storage buildings for his daughter Marie Louise and her husband Hans Christian Juel Hansen. In one drawing I have the small house is named Villa Alba.
