Architect(s)
  • Pompe Antoine

René Stevens commissioned Antoine Pompe, the most discreet and atypical architect of his time, to build this "cottage" style house in 1926, in a quiet street in Watermael-Boitsfort. Pompe was very inspired by English architecture at the time.

On the street side, the house has a narrow facade with an imposing herringbone wooden pediment.

The window frames and other woodwork are original (a rare thing), and the color also respects the original project.

The house has been listed since February 2015 and this requires the owners to meet the classification standards.

It is a charming house, with its small horizontal panes windows and the facade with staggered sides.

The recently renovated garden has nicely brought the house back to life.
