Cosy apartment in the northern part of Brussels closed to the Atomium

Cosy two-bedroom apartment located on the fourth and last floor of a modern building that offers all comforts.

There is a quite spacious living room opening west on a balcony with a view of the quiet street. On the left, you find a fully equipped kitchen that is separated from the living room.

The two bedrooms are located in the South/East part of the building, which is also in a tranquil area. The small bedroom has been turned into my home office, and it is no longer available for guests.

The bathroom has a bath tube too.
