If at one time villas were exclusively taken over as second homes, it is now no longer the case!
Descending from the rich property of ancient Rome and then the Renaissance, the villa became a comfortable bourgeois property during the 19th century that many wealthy families did not hesitate to buy. Often situated in the heart of residential areas away from the hustle and bustle of the Belgian capital, such as Uccle or Watermael-Boitsfort, the majority have a relatively modest-sized garden as well as a vast space, inside and out, to park a car or other vehicle.
Very often hidden from view, this type of home generally appeals to those that love peace and quiet and who enjoy the ample space of their home, both in summer and winter. Inside, you will usually find many spacious and tastefully decorated rooms, either with antique furniture that is full of character, or more modern designer furniture that the owners have acquired with care, patience and determination!
