For sale: 1950s midcentury modern house in Assebroek, near Bruges, Belgium

Bel1

Hidden away in the depths of Belgium is a well-preserved slice of the 1950s. This 1950s midcentury modern property in Assebroek, near Bruges, Belgium to be precise.


From the online translation, we can work out that the property was built in the late 1950s and sits on a plot around 1,200 square metres in size, that plot being in a ‘very quiet’ area. It was also a one off design, conceived and designed by the first owner-occupier, an art photographer, which perhaps accounts for the layout.

Talking of layout, the accommodation includes a large entrance area leading into an office or studio, a spacious living and dining room with an open staircase, fireplace, terrace and garden view, a ‘retro’ kitchen with hatch and ‘a few special touches’ (their words). There's also an open landing overlooking the lounge, three bedrooms (a fourth can be created), bathroom. garage, patio and the garden, not to mention plenty of large windows to bring in the light.
