Very nice house built in Art Deco style in 1928 and appears in original condition. Full of stained glass, paintings, sculptures, furniture, capets etc from the period. Extensive garden is worth a visit - nicely laid out with some humourous touches (maze, art installations). Located in Uccle near Churchill tram stop. OPEN MONDAY (closed Tuesday) but be aware of limited... More

If you like Art Deco run to this museum. It was the former home of the van Buuren family. Interior furnishings are special. The outside garden deserves as much face time as the interior of the home. Look around the garden and figure out where the garden equipment is stored!!!

Very beautiful 'Gesamtkunstwerk' in Art Deco-style with Flemish and Italian masters. Excellent destination when you are not in the mood for large musea and still want a real inspiring cultural experience.

Early C20 house furnished in art deco style and with a large garden which is a superb suburban oasis and which passes the key tests: I would love to live in it, and I went away inspired to make some changes to my own house and garden based on what I had seen.

What a find! Just get a tram to Churchill which is at the end of one of the lines. A five minute walk from there. Open on a Sunday. If you like Art Deco, this is the place. You have most of the house to wander around in your own time. Although I would have loved to have seen every... More

If you are an Art Deco fan, welcome home! It's absolutely magnificent. You are traveling in time when Queen Elisabeth of Belgium would come to see her friends the Van Bururen and listen to the laureates of the international music contest that she created. Every single detail is orgasmic.

This is a very cool house and the gardens are very well-maintained, but neither are that big and it's slightly expensive. If you can go to the Museum of Fine Arts for € 8, I don't think this place should be € 10 (in 2014). But, the house is very deco and the gardens have a maze. If you arrive... More

The house is by no means a mansion, but it is a Art Deco gem in an upscale neighborhood which we enjoyed touring. The gardens are lovely as well. Very peaceful. Take the 3 line to Churchill and look for the sign/banners pointing down the side street. The ride takes about 15 minutes from the city center.
