This 47m2, 1-bedroom apartment has a charming 70s style decor. If not for the modern appliances in the kitchen, you would think this place had not been touched since 1975, and who wouldn't want a small slice of that fashionable era. The wooden detailing, beautiful polished wooden floors, and funky wallpaper make this a really unique apartment.

Schaerbeek, or the “City of Donkeys” as it is sometimes known, is the Notting Hill of Brussels. What the neighbourhood has lost over the years in donkeys, it has gained in great ethnic restaurants, markets, parks, cherry tree lined streets, and art deco architecture.
