Located on the same avenue, a few houses further than the famous Hôtel Van Eetvelde by Horta, this large four-floors mansion, signed Léon Govaerts, caught our attention.
Designed in 1900 for Mister Moyaux, in a mixture of Art Nouveau and classicism, it presents beautiful decorative elements different on each floor, scrolls around the large windows on the ground floor, balconies decorated with great elegance on the first floor, checkered panels between floors .
The building has undergone some transformations such as the garage entrance (1952) which did not exist at the beginning.
The last owners, on the other hand, restored the lambrequin shutter covers as well as the Venetian shutters as originally designed. An avant-garde sun protection system also found in the Horta building (also recently masterfully restored).
The original ironwork has been beautifully restored. Another fine example of rehabilitation that should be noted.
