With its pure-white form set against a forested backdrop, the 1929 Villa Dirickz, just outside of Brussels, Belgium, looks a bit like Le Corbusier's iconic Villa Savoye, though it's much bigger and way more opulent. Notable in its own right—it's the best known work of Belgian architect Marcel Leborgne, a pioneer of modernism in the country—the majestic 10,000-square-foot residence was renovated several years ago, a process that included the restoration of structural elements like concrete beams, railings, and windows, as well as the addition of lavish new features like an indoor garden pool on the ground floor. The original staircase in the grand hall remains, as does the striking exterior spiral staircase, which takes you directly to the rooftop terrace with a bar and panoramic views of the park-like grounds. Now for sale, the five-bedroom pad also includes a home cinema and wine cellar, as well as a separate caretaker's cottage on site.
