On the edge of the Forest of Walloon Brabant, but only 20 minutes from Brussels, this manor-villa is an example of Art Nouveau in the prestige property sector.
Nature-loving Brussels residents dream of owning a property by the forest, in the province of Wallon Brabant, and more especially in the town of Lasne. The properties in this chic suburb have the reputation of being the best, and it is famous for its Plant Festival in the Garden of Aywiers, but also for the neighbouring site of a historical battle : the Battle of Waterloo.
A majestic villa in the heart of Wallonia
This is the idyllic location of this manor-villa, built in 1918, on 9 hectares of its own grounds. The rustic surrounds include woods, five bodies of water and fish ponds, as well as lawns which are part of highly-manicured French formal gardens.
Luxury on every level
The building’s 2 000 m² are spread over 4 levels and the monumental scale is immediately striking. The majestic hall is illuminated thanks to a roof lantern, which leads to an enormous reception room, and then towards a living room with a fireplace, gold leaf-painted walls and a floor decorated with mosaics. Looking out at nature, the dining-room opens on to a large light-filled veranda. The raised ground-floor contains the master suite and the guest bedroom, while the home cinema is situated above, towards the roof lantern, which gives an exterior charm to the whole place. To make longer stays more fun, the owners had a well-being space installed underground. The 8m-long pool, the hammam and the jacuzzi are like promises to rediscover serenity.
