Villas in Tynlon

This villa was built around 1910 for the Thienpont family, who lived a little further on Hof te Cattebeke. Painter Valerius De Saedeleer lived in this Villa from 1921 to 1937. De Saedeleer named the house "Villa Tynlon", referring to his home in Wales during the First World War. The Saedeleer had a beautiful view of the landscape from here. In many of his works from his Etikhoofse period we find recognizable elements, such as the former inn "Belle Vue" located a little lower in the Onderbossenaarstraat. In "Landscape after the storm" from 1922 he painted - perfectly recognizable - the farm and the street bend diagonally opposite his villa.
In 1937 Valerius left Villa Tynlon. His beloved wife 'Clemmeke' had died in 1930, a loss he would never recover. He moved in with his daughter Maria in Leupegem.
After Valerius' departure, the villa was occupied by another of De Saedeleer's daughters: Marie-Jozef, together with her husband Leo Piron (also a painter) and their son Antoon. They lived here until 1948.
In the front garden of the villa is the artwork "Disorientating a floor" (2005) by artist Tim Volckaert.
