The gently sloping, green landscape of the Land of Herve shows Belgium at its most beautiful. Meadows and orchards undulate from the Voerstreek in the north to the Ardennes south of this beautiful piece of Wallonia.
On this special location this villa is situated.
From the outside, the modern white villa looks like a 21st century citadel that rises majestically and invitingly above the landscape where lush meadows, fresh fruit orchards and lovely farmland are strung together in a masterly mosaic. This austere structure from 2006 was far ahead of its time but at the same time is located in an environment where that same time seems to have stood still and yet only twenty minutes by car from bustling and Burgundian Maastricht. Immediately after entering this majestic building, the meters high ceilings, (sliding) doors and floor to ceiling windows stand out, offering a 360 degree view of the gently rolling hills of what is also very appropriately 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 seems to impose its will on the hall. 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 equipped with 150 different aquatic plants. The green expanse of the pleasure garden shows off 250 species of plants and also has a greenhouse where everything can be in full bloom in autumn and winter.
This house surprises and pleases with panoramic views, optimal privacy and even an indoor lift.
You'll find plenty of water in the various wellness areas where you'll feel like you're in Andalucian Granada, thanks to the fine fleur of Moorish tiling. Decorative 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 unwind.
