This 1930s Belgian home has been given a 21st century refresh while retaining its Art Deco flourishes.
Designed by Ghent architect M Van den Hende, the five-bedroom abode was once the residence of the town doctor for Sint Amands in Antwerp. Its former practice and waiting rooms have been transformed, respectively, into a private office and an open plan living area.
House DK, which is on the market with Architecten Woning for €695,000, is filled with stained glass and artworks dot the downstairs living areas, such as a signed bas-relief of Aesculapius in the hallway.
In 2001, the house was completely renovated by architect Marie-José Van Hee who modernised the kitchen and opened up the rear of the house by adding a glass-sided dining room. A collapsing wall of folding doors expands the room out onto the terrace and into the leafy garden.
Tucked between Antwerp and Ghent, Sint Amands is a small town with a population of around 8,000, situated on the right bank of the Scheldt river.
