Property unique ID:
Bright and spacious duplex-penthouse (150 m2) with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, fully fitted kitchen and 2 spacious terraces (100 m2) with splendid views of the Basilique and the centre of Brussels. The apartment has been built in 2010 and is in impeccable condition.
The living space has a surface of 80m2 and is completely open-planned (integrated kitchen, dining and living area). The kitchen is fully fitted (fridge, freezer, induction cooker, oven and a brand new dishwasher and microwave). The dining and sitting area are currently furnished with design furniture which is in nearly new condition. The future tenant(s) may acquire this furniture if interested. The tailor-made curtains will stay.
On the same level as the living area you will find the master bedroom (14m2 - 180 cm bed) with two wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom (16m2) with double vanity, a large bathtub, two wall cabinets and a bespoke dressing for two persons.
Also on the same level there is a second bedroom (13m2) with wardrobe which will easily fit a 160cm bed.
The second bathroom with shower, washer, dryer and WC are also located on this level.
The duplex area consists of a 16m2 bedroom/office room and provides access to two large terrace areas (40m2 and 60m2). Both terraces are very private, they have an excellent orientation (the 40m2 = south) and offer magnificent views of the Basilique and the centre of Brussels.
The owner will allow small pets, but not smokers.
On the ground floor a spacious garage (room for a large car, scooter and storage space for groceries) is available for 120 EUR per month. The tenant of the garage has the exclusive right to use the parking space on the street in front of the garage, so there is space for two cars.
The monthly costs (‘charges’) for this apartment are very low at 40 EUR / month (real costs).
The private energy consumption (water, gas and electricity) amounts to a mere +/- 120 EUR / month thanks to the ecological design of the apartment. These costs are private and are to be paid by the tenant. The owner is however prepared to keep all subscriptions (water, gas, electricity, TV/Internet) in his name and process the payment of all incoming invoices. Since the amount of these costs depends on the consumption, a lump sum amount can be added to the rental agreement, with an annual correction to be made. The main advantage for the tenant is the comfort of knowing that there will be no administrative dealings with energy/water/phone suppliers.
In the immediate vicinity of the penthouse you will find the beautiful park Elisabeth (Bar Elisa and Plazey music festival), several small and larger supermarkets (Carrefour, Colruyt and Okay), two pharmacies and an excellent bakery (Sirre) and butcher. In the same street there are also several (primary and secondary) schools, both in French and Dutch education. The communes of Koekelberg and Jette are less densely populated, they have many diverse parks and green areas and are ideal for someone who prefers to live close to centre of the city, but in a calmer, greener, more residential and affordable neighbourhood.
The European area is only 5.8 km away (4.5 as the crow flies) and can be reached in 20-25 mins (irrespective of using public transport, a car in morning traffic or bike). On a scooter/motorbike or electric bike it is reached in a good 10 mins.
All large train stations (Central, North and South station) are +/- 4 km away and can be easily reached by metro Simonis (this hub allows you to go around and enter the city centre both clockwise and counter clockwise, which is very convenient). Brussels airport is some 20 mins away.
Total rental price (penthouse 1500 + charges 40 + garage 120) = 1.660 EUR / month with a two month deposit as rental warranty of 3.000 EUR.
