Castle Argenteuil, Waterloo

Does anybody have pictures of Argenteuil? I can't find any.

Argenteuil, where Leopld III and the family he had with Lilian used to live, is still for sale. It will be sold to a private buyer (so if anyone's interested... ), at this link you can see lots of photos of the castle, the park and the interior:

It belongs to the state, it was lent to Leopold and Lilian by the state, so after Lilian's death it went back.

But after Leopold died in 1983 Lilian sort of let it crumble down. She didn't want to touch anything anymore, and leave everything as it was when her husband died. Which was pretty stupid because now, 20 years later there's a lot to be repared and restaured. The costs have got so high, that the Belgian state doesn't want to pay it, and has decided to sell the estate.

(BTW it was built somewhere in the 1920's by a rich American).

I wonder if Argenteuil has been sold already and if so, to whom?

Argenteuil was sold in 2004 to Jean-Marie Delwart to house an ecological project.
