This Modernist villa by Jacques Dupuis & Albert Bontridder in Brabant could be yours
The 1960s classic is next to a former Benedictine abbey
On the former estate of a Benedictine abbey, near Leuven in Brabant, Belgium, sits a modernist villa built by Jacques Dupuis and Albert Bontridder in 1965.
The top Belgian architects designed the home for doctor Van Den Schrieck and his wife. The heritage-protected building has been put on the market by their heirs for €1.975m via Architectenwoning.
Villa Van Den Schrieck is a seven-bedroom bungalow that comprises two parallel wings – one for living, one for sleeping – topped with geometric flat roofs of different inclines. Seen from the garden, the expressive whitewashed western façade is crowned with two dark slate boxes.
All the floors are of blue limestone, and bespoke wooden furniture by the architects can be found throughout the house, knitting together the interconnected spaces.
