A charming pocket villa inside the forest of Schoten, in Flanders

Green lung of Flanders, in Belgium, the forest of Schoten is sprinkled with a wide array of charming pocket villas awaiting just you.

Small is beautiful! This concept is admirably showcased in the commune of Schoten, not very far from from the metropolis of Antwerp. It's a peaceful site, known since the high Middle-Ages by nature lovers for its château surrounded by a moat, but also for its proximity with 2 canals and Flemish forests making it a very green countryside, where small charming villas are scattered.

Heart throb for an attaching home sweet home

The heart throb begins at the entrance. Luminous and spacious, it leads into a salon divided between a televison corner and a reception area with a fireplace, ideal to enjoy a nice traditional crackling wood-burning fire. On the side, the dining room is next to the kitchen, and close to the office. The four bedrooms are to be discovered on the upper level, as well as the large attic of this very endearing pocket villa.
