Between Brussels and Antwerp | Castle-country estate between Brussels and Antwerp

1.800.000 €

Description
The history of this castle-country estate dates back to a 17th century “House of plaisantie” and was converted several times over the years. In 1891, the castle got its eventual form: a complex form that is plastered white with several extensions, two storeys with a loft under a convex angled saddle roof. The property has an extremely central location on the Antwerp-Brussels axis, just a 15-minute drive from both cities. This castle-like villa was built in the middle of a 1ha 32a domain and is surrounded by castle moats and a wonderful garden. The estate itself consists of three small islands (bailey, castle island and island garden) that are connected by wooden bridges across the castle moats. The building complex consists of a centrally situated castle as well as a caretakers lodge, a garage and a stable. The building's interior is characterised by an extremely atmospheric finish and proper use of artistic elements. From the annexed orangeries and the terrace that was built on top of the water, there is a splendid view of the wonderful park-like gardens. The architectural set-up of the house and the surrounding greenery provide for an intense feel of nature. The cosy living room provides a permanent view on the surrounding greenery. The island garden south of the castle is characterised by crossing paths bordered by box trees. Over the years, the entire garden was enriched with hedges, topiary, hydrangeas and several sculptures. The outdoor paths are marked out by Italian poplars, sweet chestnuts and a three-stemmed giant tree of life. The long drive and the outer banks of the moat are bordered by 3m high cherry laurel hedges. It is a complex offering plenty of possibilities that is definitely worth a visit for professional purposes due to its location and set-up. This property is suited perfectly for a small business, bar, restaurant or even hotel. An outdoor parking provides space for 50 cars. This castle currently has a commercial purpose and is run as a top restaurant. Of course, this is also an interesting investment property. The property can be acquired through a takeover of shares.
