The gently sloping, green landscape of the Land of Herve shows Belgium at its best. Meadows and orchards flow from the Voer region in the north to the Ardennes south of this beautiful part of Wallonia.
This villa is situated on this special location.
From the outside, the modern white villa looks like a 21st century citadel that rises majestically and invitingly above the landscape where juicy meadows, fresh fruit orchards and lovely farmland line up in a masterful mosaic. This austere building from 2006 was then already far ahead of its time but is simultaneously located in an environment where the same time seems to have stood still and yet only twenty minutes by car from the bustling and Burgundian Maastricht. Immediately after entering this majestic building, the metre-high ceilings, (sliding) doors and floor to ceiling windows stand out, offering a 360-degree view of the gently rolling hills of what is aptly called the Meadow Region.
The incidence of light is maximum and is reflected by the white of the marble floor and dramatic spiral staircase that the hall seems to impose its will. Once in the salon, the warm beating heart of this country house, you will be struck by the airy space, the central location of the gas fireplace and the playfulness of the layout where five steps lead to the upper part with all-round views and access to the terrace with outdoor pool and pond with 150 different water plants. The green expanse of the pleasure garden shows off 250 species of plants and also has a greenhouse where in autumn and winter everything can be in full bloom.
This house surprises and pleases with panoramic views, optimal privacy and even an indoor elevator.
You'll find plenty of water in the various wellness areas where, thanks to the fine colour of Moorish tiling, you'll feel as if you're in Andalusia's Granada. Decent royal blue and white dominate these rooms which, thanks to a large jacuzzi, an indoor pool and beautifully designed stone benches with inlaid tiles, immediately evoke a Zen feeling.
The ideal place to relax.
