Luxury Dirickz Villa in Belgium

The Brussels luxury suburbs in Sint-Genesius-Rode have always been famous for its unique charm and aristocratic spirit. This atmosphere of refinement is enhanced by exclusive villas built in the early 20th century. One of these buildings is a famous Dirickz villa designed by famous Belgian architect – modernist of 20th century Marcel Leborgne, who is rightly considered as a founder of new movement in architecture in Europe – modernism. Marcel Leborgne designed his work for Mr. Dirickz, the director of the Forges de Clabecq, an iron and steel factory, who loved fine art, fashionable events and a glittering lifestyle.

But the fate of this beautiful four-storey luxury Dirickz villa in Art Nouveau style was sad: prior to 2006 this jewel of architecture felt into a state of severe disrepair, the huge surrounding area was empty and looked as abandoned estate of an aristocrat. New life in the Dirickz villa began in 2007 when it was purchased together with the adjacent park by developer Alexander Cambron who started extensive luxurious renovation of the villa. Major work on the restoration of external and internal design of the building took three years to complete.
