global politics. It’s the effective capital of the European Union, home to the EU’s main base of operations, as well as the headquarters of NATO. Nearly a third of Brussels’ population carries a foreign passport, making this city the consummate multi-national, multi-cultural metropolis. For those seeking more spacious acreage, Belgium doesn’t disappoint. The country has more castles per square mile than any other!
The Prince d’Orange estate in Uccle, while not a literal castle, is situated on a spacious 15+/- acres and showcases several palatial finishes.
This fabulous Anglo-Norman style home was built in 2001, and welcomes visitors with a long stone walkway.
Pass through the double door entryway into an expansive foyer space. An impressive staircase with detailed iron ornamentation curves upwards.
The home boasts several lovely receptions rooms, including a sitting room with a fireplace, two studies and a separate dining room. Trey ceilings with gorgeous crown molding draw the eye upwards.
The home’s reception areas feature tall windows that flood the room with natural light. The dining room, living room and office all open onto a beautiful terrace overlooking the garden.
The sleek, modern kitchen has been outfitted by Bulthaup and features an island area with seating, upgraded lighting, stainless appliances, a pantry and plenty of natural light.
A stunning “wellness area” on the terrace level provides an idyllic retreat. Discover an overflow mosaic swimming pool, a Turkish bath, an ornate mosaic sauna, Jacuzzi tub and cloakroom, as well as a small kitchen and bathroom.
Prince d’Orange boasts a total of four bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as a wine cellar, a heated two-car garage and two additional carports. Welcome home!
