An art deco villa is up for sale in Ghent, and it’s peak 1930s elegance, from its black-and-white marble floors to its stained glass windows.
The modernist home has undergone some restoration since it was completed in 1932. However, its period details are still very much in place. Of particular note are its geometrically-patterned art deco windows, which cast shafts of coloured light, and the parquet flooring that runs throughout.
Guests enter the five-bedroom Ghent property via a grand entrance hall, framed by arched doorways, red brick walls and chequerboard flooring, which leads up to an airy living space.
The ground-floor kitchen has its original Aga still in place, as well as locker room-style cupboards. A marble-lined fireplace keeps things cosy in the master bedroom, which has a private terrace.
The Belgian property – listed with Engel & Völkers for €875,000 – comes with an additional ‘pancake house’, which can be used as an extra guest cottage.
