English-style homes, which are known for their simultaneously elegant and eccentric designs, are popular in continental Europe. With their cosy atmosphere, beautiful materials, luxury furniture, flowery textiles, and upholstered couches, British interiors always serve up their share of delightful surprises as soon as you open the door.

The surprises of an English manor, in the forest of Schilde

Such is the case for this sumptuous, cottage-style villa, which is surrounded by a level, 2 900 m² plot of land. The home’s architecture is inspired by traditional country homes and features one floor of Burgundian stone. The entryway leads to a kitchen with a central island and dining corner as well as a well-lit living room complete with a chimney.
