Villa in Antwerp

In 1899, under the direction of architect Jos Bascourt, the “Four Seasons Buildings” were erected in the sought-after Zurenborg area, of which the corner building “De Winter” has remained the most authentic and has been protected as a monument due to its heritage value. As one of the most sought-after cityscapes in Zurenborg, the corner building “De Winter” has been constantly subjected to development and renovation. The current owners have given the iconic building a substantial amount of TLC and have already completed 80% of the management plan. The facades and interior have been completely restored to their current state, and new facilities have been installed to enjoy modern comfort in this historic building. Notable features include the Neo-Moorish style veranda with partially preserved illusionistic wall paintings, an entrance hall with art nouveau motifs in mosaic, stained glass windows, marble paneling, glass domes, historical fireplaces, mosaics, bay windows, high ceilings, moldings, pilasters, and authentic parquet floors.

On a plot of approximately 203 m², “De Winter” offers approximately 415m² of living space and an adjacent garage. Ground floor: living space, veranda, office space, guest toilet, storage rooms, and potential kitchen or multifunctional space. 1st floor: 3 spacious rooms, toilet, and kitchen or potential second bathroom. 2nd floor: sleek bathroom, 4th and 5th rooms, separate toilet, laundry room. On top of that, there is a sun terrace with a 360° view over Zurenborg, overlooking the roundabout of the Cogels-Osylei and in the distance, the Boerentoren, MAS, and Our Lady Cathedral. Finally, the property also includes a basement of approximately 86m².

As a new owner, you can expect numerous compliments from passing tourists. Every week, city guides lead tourists past the beautiful houses of Zurenborg. To date, the cityscape is 125 years old and has not only given “De Winter” but also the surrounding streets a significant upgrade. The streets have been redesigned, new sewers and cables, including fiber optic, have been installed. Not only is it a well-maintained neighborhood, but it is also a cozy one due to the numerous neighborhood activities, markets, and events at the nearby Draakplaats and Dageraadplaats. For those who travel regularly or leave the city, there is no shortage of comfort. Within one minute, you can reach the ring road of Antwerp, and within three minutes, the train and bus station Antwerp-Berchem. Garage box available for purchase for €100,000.
