A quaint countryside cottage from the outside, this lovely house, dubbed Villa Modern, is actually a comfortable, spacious, and luxurious villa once you take a closer look. Located in the small Belgian town of Sint-Genesius-Rode (which is just a short drive away from the capital, Bruxelles), the recently renovated, southward-facing home is surrounded by about 40 acres of wonderful gardens. Distinctly Anglo-Norman in its outward appearance, the mansion nevertheless offers all the modern amenities you could ask for. Large ground floor windows invite ample amounts of light in, while also providing great views of the gardens. There are 5 bedrooms and 5

Built using carbon fiber and epoxy, it’s quite easy-on-the-eye as well, and also includes a waterproof luggage box and an ice box under the seat.
