Located just an hour away from Brussels, the only visible clue to this vacation home's past life is the train track that traverses its bucolic property.

Once a small country train station, La Micheline has been converted into an interesting property that features a timeless silhouette, original stonework, vaulted ceilings, and a rich history.

Modern home with Outdoor, Field, Trees, Grass, Hardscapes, and Walkways. Situated on 25 acres of rolling fields just outside the village of Bioul, Belgium, the charming home was renovated and designed by architect Stéphane Lebrun of Kyo-co Atelier. The interiors were designed and photographed by Jean-Luc Laloux. What makes the property so unique is that the old out-of-service train tracks still wind throughout the property and have created a playground where kids and parents alike can push each other around on little makeshift cars.
