The awesome attic

Because I love skylights

Will I like it here?

No doubt. Sloped ceilings add charm. Skylights filter natural light into this upper floor apartment. You’re a short walk from Cinquantenaire Park – it couldn’t be more perfect.

Really? Tell me more...

You have wood floors and wooden counters in the modern kitchen. There’s a dishwasher, too. Enjoy an ensuite bathroom and a gorgeous minimalist living and dining room.

We think this is great for professionals. The neighborhood is a melting pot. Discover a wide variety of restaurants to dine in. Spend an evening strolling through nearby parks and squares.

Your top 3 reasons to live here:

  • Enjoy sun shining through skylights – maybe stargaze too.
  • Relax in a minimalist living area – it’s stress free.
  • Stroll through local parks and squares – Cinquantenaire Park is 10 minutes away.

But you need to know this...

  • Guests must pass through your bedroom in order to access the bathroom.
  • The building doesn’t have an elevator.
