Description

Victor Horta constructed this wonderful house for himself and his wife in 1913. Boasting an outstanding location within 3 hectares of grounds overlooking the Genval Lake, the property was later acquired by the Langhe-Dautzenburg family. During this period, in 1943, architect Raoul Beguin oversaw a significant renovation that infused the Art Deco style that remains its dominant feature to this day. Its current owner, the famous cellist Mischa Maisky, has further enhanced the spirit of the property with an aesthetic makeover masterminded by architect Ferdinand Joachim and interior designer Michel Colson. The property comprises two buildings: the main residence, ?La Bastide?, and a caretaker?s lodge, ?La Conciergerie?, located in the upper reaches of the grounds. Its remarkable features include gardens, a fountain, woods, footpaths and a pond. Energy rating: F.
