Take a tour around this rural Flemish home

17 images

The old-fashioned charm of this Flemish house is, in fact, a beautiful piece of artifice. Its rustic terracotta roof and ancient beams suggest it was built several hundred years ago, but the structure actually dates from 1946. The building was completely refurbished, including new windows, roof tiles and flooring, quite recently. ‘We wanted to enlarge the living spaces and bring in lots more light,’ say the owners of the three large rooms, including this drawing room, that now make up the ground floor.
