Antiques in Belgium


This beautiful Belgian paradise is home to designers Alain and Brigitte Garnier.  The home dates back to 1275, and sits on 11 glorious acres of farmland.  The renovations took 8 years to complete, and was a labour of love for the couple, who also own an antique shop. 

The home has an endless array of exquisite features, from reclaimed floors, a grand entrance hall, and of course a collection of the finest antiques.  The property came with 7 buildings that date back to the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, but they were all desperately in need of care. 




A nearby pig barn was converted into the kitchen, and then attached by the roof, and linked by a passageway.  The estate property can be rented out for private functions, from weddings to photoshoots.  You can visit the event site for more beautiful pictures of the grounds, and it's adjacent buildings.
