This unusual address, facing the ponds in Ixelles, is very near to the European capital. The banks of this old country village have been home to Belgium’s polite society since the late 19th century. Constructed in 1904 by Ernest-Blerot, this townhouse underwent in-depth renovation works in 2008. It remains a brilliant example of the Art Nouveau style, of which its architect was one of the most inspired ambassadors. Set on the heights looking out over the pond, its stone facade is embellished with fine wrought iron tracery. The interior is a success and the decor appears to be right out of the Belle-Époque, completed here and there with some more contemporary pieces of furniture, in a subtle blend of influences. The entrance hall, paved with mosaic tiles, houses an impressive spiral stairway, crowned with an atrium roof. The spacious living and reception rooms are adorned with some extraordinary, original decorative features, like this fireplace, with its coloured floral design. The upstairs, also reached via a lift, comprises six bedrooms, each with an elegant shower room. The building further includes a utility floor, with a separate entrance, and a delightful south-west facing garden, enhanced with bas-reliefs. The view from the curved balconies and bay windows looks out over the water of the lake, its peaceful surface disturbed but by the passing swans.
