Tour a historic live/work space for sale in central Antwerp

An ancient well, crooked roof and monumental stone facade are just some of the treasures in store at this historic live/work property in Antwerp’s old town, which pays testament to the city’s seaport past.

Maison de Maitre was initially two buildings combined to create a whole with contiguous spaces on each level. The four-storey Antwerp property is offered for sale via Sotheby’s International Realty Belgium for €925,000 and is centrally located on the Vlasmarkt, between the Scheldt quays and the Hoogstraat.

A Flemish gabled roof crowns the building, which has a cavernous commercial space at street level. Hidden beneath is a full brick basement and an old well, dug before the building’s construction.

Interiors stitch together old with new across the upper-level, private quarters. Wide stone-edged archways join rooms while gently warped and patinated timber floorboards run underfoot, and exposed rafters and rough hand-hewn beams cross the ceilings.

Fired red brick flooring and traditional Flemish fireplaces are also offered inside the space, with three bedrooms on the second floor. The attic level meanwhile, has a kitchenette and bathroom and functions as a self-contained studio space.
