Description

This 250 m² semi-detached house stands on the street aligned with the other houses in a little one-way road. Constructed in the 19th century and recently extended, it spans 5 levels, 3 of which are habitable, and comprises ten or so rooms. The facade is marked by a neo-classical style whereas the inside is a blend of different decors ranging from classical to Art Nouveau.
The garden is behind the house. Completely walled, it is also concealed from onlookers by its vegetation.
It is possible to park a car in a private parking space in a secure building just a few metres from the house.

The residence

This house spans five levels: a basement, a ground floor, a first floor and an attic floor followed by unusable attic space. The north-east facing facade is marked by a moulded dressed freestone lower section with a dentil course cornice at the top. It is divided into four bays. A first bay, on the left-hand side, features a small rectangular opening on the ground and first floors. These openings are topped with a lintel, decorated by a dentil course and a cornice. The second and fourth bays are identical, with a window on the ground floor, a French window on the first floor and a hanging roof dormer on the attic floor. The windows, with railings, are crowned with a flat-moulded keystone and two moulded angle braces supporting the sill of the French windows above. The latter are adorned with a flat-moulded keystone and two Corinthian order corbels supporting a cornice. They have wrought iron railings featuring geometric motifs. The roof dormers are topped with a triangular pediment. All of the house’s openings are wrought, with dressed freestone framing. And lastly, the third bay differs from the others but on the ground floor where the main entrance is to be found. These double wooden doors include small glazed openings, protected by ironwork forming the initials of a former owner, in their upper sections. The rear, south-west facing facade features a door, three windows and two French windows on the ground floor. Upstairs, the various windows are framed with brick. Two brick chimney stacks protrude from the long-sloped roof, covered with slate.


Ground floor
The moulded ceiling and the white-painted panelling of the entrance hall enhance its coloured, geometrically patterned cement floor tiles. A lounge, on the left-hand side, has herringbone parquet flooring, panelling identical to that in the entrance hall and a marble fireplace. A concealed door opens into a storage room. The stained glass window is predominantly white with thin, coloured framing. On the right-hand side of the entrance hall is an office, previously used by a resident working from home. A large vestibule then provides access to a kitchen, a living room, a dressing room, a toilet and the stairway going to the basement as well as that leading upstairs. The bright fitted kitchen communicates with the living room. The latter, also reached from the vestibule via a large glazed door, comprises a dining room area and a lounge area. The dining room is steeped in light courtesy of an outstanding Art Nouveau style stained glass window. The lounge is laid out in a recent extension. These three last areas all open on to the garden. Next to the wooden stairway leading upstairs is a porcelain wash-hand basin with floral motifs.
First floor
The landing, with its parquet flooring, is also used as a small library. Illuminated via a stained glass window, it provides access to two bedrooms, with a fireplace, a bathroom, a storage room and a toilet. The first bedroom has an adjoining shower room and a built-in cupboard. The second has a bathroom and a wardrobe behind a concealed door.
Second floor
This level comprises three bedrooms, one of which has a built-in cupboard and a wash-hand basin, a shower room and a toilet. The unusable attic space can be reached via a hatch in the ceiling.
Basement
The vaulted basement comprises a single room with cement floor tiles. It houses the boiler.

The garden

The garden, spanning a surface area of approx. 500 m², is walled and totally unoverlooked. A majestic cedar tree stands in the middle of the garden, facing the house. Easy to maintain, it is planted with various species that flower in clement weather. A little shed is used for storing garden tools.

Our opinion

The large, Art Nouveau stained glass window, featuring irises, in the dining room is but a reflection of the vegetation, flowering in the garden. This property is in the centre of a town whose very name brings history and a certain pleasant way of living to mind! The residence has an air of a small mansion house courtesy of its decors, those of its facade and those of its rooms. The office laid out on the ground floor, ideal for those seeking to work from home, will in no way disturb the life of the family for whom this house appears to have been built.
