Very beautiful private mansion designed in 1901 by architect Taelemans for his personal use.

Corner building somewhat inspired by the Hôtel Otlet, rue de Livourne 48, designed by Octave Van Rijsselberghe and Henry Van de Velde in 1898.

The style is Art-Nouveau quite sober, and balanced, even if most of the windows as are of different shapes, there are oriels, bow-windows, straight and horseshoe arch windows.

The fairly slender entrance door is framed by a superb horseshoe arch ending in two straight columns and elegant arabesques.

The current owners have magnificently restored the facade, and above all the sgraffito, located under the cornices, representing the sea and seagulls. These had completely disappeared.

The house was listed in 1988.
