Old meets new inside this Belgian farmhouse, which has been given a top-to-toe renovation that hones its historic bones.
Bisdomhoeve was restored by its owners in 2015 and is set within six acres of Flemish Brabant countryside. The redbrick farmhouse is being marketed as a single 11,840 sq ft property by Antwerp Sotheby’s International Realty, with price on application, but it has actually been divided into three dwellings.
The main eight-bedroom Belgian property features a double-height living room with barrel-vaulted and pitched ceilings and an open brick hearth. Original timber beams have been left exposed to contrast metal-framed windows and doors.
A wing of the U-shaped agricultural building has been transformed into two apartments – accessed via separate entrances, and with three bedrooms apiece – to create a multi-family, or multi-generational living complex, guest or rental accommodation.
Additional perks include an indoor swimming pool with sauna and hammam.
