The August issue of Architectural Digest features a home in the country side of Belgium and it's safe to say I was more than a little transfixed by the gardens.
Apple and pear trees in the estate's orchard.
A narrow moat to the north of the main house (your house doesn't have a moat? Unacceptable).
The moat's footbridge.
Outdoor dining under linden trees.
An enormous hornbeam hedge provides privacy.
Chinese wisteria climbs an arbour.
A pergola with more wisteria.
The 17th century house while quite something to admire from the outside felt like quite another story from the inside. But as always it's in the eye of the beholder so pop over here and decide for yourself.
I will mention one thing about the house, it has an underground art gallery.
Of course it does.
