SABLON: Dream home – historic AND sensibly renovated


WHAT: The original house of 276m2 plus 53m2 basement dates back from the 17th century. It underwent a complete renovation under supervision of an architect and nowadays combines all modern-day amenities (elevator on all floors, state-of-the-art heating system, EPC category C, and more) with a splendid charm of the last centuries, such as marvellous wooden ceilings, a fully functional fireplace, and the original façade.

On the ground floor, large entrance area, guest WC and towards the back, separate studio including kitchenette and bathroom. Back garden of 50m2 with terrace accessible from ground and 1st floor. Reception floor with inbuilt library, fireplace, dining area and luxurious open plan kitchen with access to the back terrace and magnificent view on the Museum of Fine Arts. On the second floor, master bedroom with inbuilt dressing, fully equipped marble bathroom including bathtub and separate dressing that could become a second bedroom on this floor. Third and last floor – bathed in light, open space including bedroom area and lounge area with splendid high ceiling and apparent original roof truss. Still on this floor, shower room, back terrace and – like the cherry on the cake – a totally private rooftop terrace. Potential to separate the last floor into 2 bedrooms. Fully developed vaulted basement of 53m2 with laundry and storage space. Plans on demand.

WHY: One-of-a-kind chance to acquire a heritage house in a street dating back from the 1200, boasting with charm and yet ready to move in.

WHERE: Located in a truly outstanding and ultra-chic neighbourhood. In the area, you find renown cultural institutions, gardens and a plethora of en vogue boutiques, bars and restaurants. Well linked with all corners of Brussels via public transport, the historical centre at a 5-minute-walk.
