Located in the western end of Belgium and in a rural district, the house dates back to 1962 and was designed and built for writer Maurice Roelant, who obviously liked something a little different when it came to architecture. 50 years on and this house still has the power to amaze.

It’s also been noted as architecturally significant too. According to a translation of the agent’s details, the interior is ‘protected as a monument’, while ‘further renovation imposes itself with the possibility of obtaining important grants’. Unfortunately, there aren’t any shots of the inside, so you’ll have to use your imagination or get a flight booked to Belgium.
