Gorgeous family home near botanical garden and university hospital

Our house is beautifully located in a one-way street in a quiet and safe residential neighborhood, overlooking a little park with playground (street side) and a 16th-century Carthusian monastery (garden side). There's a very wide pavement on which kids can safely chalk or cycle. All windows overlook the greenery surrounding the house.

The house has been renovated in 2010 and 2018. On the ground floor, it has a living room and dining room with oak parquet, and a convenient kitchen with all amenities. The kitchen gives onto a split-level desk space, which has a little bathroom on the side, and leads to a small but charming herb garden through sliding doors. The garden boasts two terraces, one sheltered from the (occasional) sun with an electric awning.

Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, a separate office space, and two bathrooms: one with bath and rain shower, the other with walk-in shower. The children's bedrooms have built-in beds. One even boasts a bunk cupboard-bed.

Our house is very conveniently located near the city's botanical garden (5min walk), the university hospitals (Gasthuisberg 15min), the science campus (Arenberg, 15min), the historic city centre (10min), the Unesco-listed 13th-century Great Beguinage (5min), and so on. There are various supermarkets in the close vicinity, as well as a fitness (1min), pharmacy, and night shop.

Leuven is close to all Belgian universities and university hospitals, including Brussels (VUB, ULB), Antwerp (UA), Ghent (RUG), Namur and Liège. It is also close to all major cities in Europe, via Brussels: London (2 hours by Eurostar), Paris (1,5 hour by Thalys), Amsterdam, Köln...

About Me
I am an assistant professor at the Institute of Philosophy in Leuven. My expertise is in history and philosophy of science, particularly psychiatry, sexology and biology. With my family, I spent some time abroad, with visiting fellowships at the Institut des Sciences de l'Evolution in Montpellier (2007), the Department of History and Philosophy of Science in Cambridge (2008-2009) and the Centre for Research in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, again in Cambridge (2011). I also have a keen interest in mid-century modern furniture design, and I play Fender Rhodes in a post rock band called Grim.
