The foundations of what we know today as The Mansion were laid in the 19th century.
The grounds were originally bought by Hippolyte Leopold Heughebaert in 1892. He commissioned an architect by the name of Masereel to build him and his family a home: The Mansion.
You can clearly see the neoclassical style he used in the face of the building as well as in the entryway with its dramatic pillars and detailing. Most of the detailing on the walls and ceilings however was not added until after the death of Hippolyte by the new owners who added murals and ceiling paintings. The Paintings in the entryway depict personifications of all the major art forms and have been kept unchanged since they were first painted.
Today The Mansion is here for you to write the rest of its story.
LOW EMISSION ZONE
Since 2020, Ghent is located in a Low Emission Zone, which means that older cars with high emissions cannot enter the city centre to improve air quality in the city. If you want to check whether you can enter the city with your car or look at a map of the location of the zone, you can visit:
- Underground parking Ramen is around the corner and costs around 16 euros for 24 hours
- You can park in the streets but make sure you choose an orange zone (6 euros per 24hours) as the red zone will cost much more (10 euros per 3 hours)
- There are also several Park & Ride parkings around the city where you can leave your car for a very small fee or free and take public transportation into the city
- The street we are located in is a no-cars allowed zone
