About this property

About Waterfront living where Goethe was guest

This venerable villa was erected in the year 1713 and enlarged around 1750. It is situated only a few steps away from the Rhine on a large property with an area of approx. 1,500 sq m which features a romantic garden accented with mature trees and sheltered by established plantings.
The building is listed under historic monument protection and radiates a one-of-a-kind charm. Even the foyer is embellished by a plasterwork ceiling with very intricate ornamental details which was crafted in the year 1750.
The ground floor has just recently been renovated and equipped with beautiful parquet flooring and provides access to the large terrace, which is partially covered by a roof. Large double windows ensure that the rooms are bright. On the first upper level, the splendid original features typical of the construction period have also been preserved and are evidence of the high tier of society to which the original owner belonged. Goethe, the famous German author, is said to have been a guest at the house and allegedly had his wine loaded there.
In addition to a small bathroom and a room with hook-ups for kitchen appliances and fixtures, the attic level also offers four additional rooms so effectively it constitutes a complete additional residential unit.
Although it was used as an office in recent times, the villa can also be converted to residential use without any great expenditure of time and effort. In particular, a combination of residential and work-related use is a possible option. It is possible to have a kitchen and a bathroom installed on every level in the cases where a bathroom and kitchen do not already exist.

Highly intricate ornamental plasterwork ceilings, parquet floors, high ceilings to some extent, double doors, original wooden panel doors, wooden staircase, garage, parking for at least 6 vehicles, garden with romantic landscaping, fountain, view of the Rhine, alarm system, natural slate roof.

Oestrich-Winkel - which consists of the communities of Oestrich, Mittelheim and Winkel - is one of the somewhat larger, but nevertheless idyllic wine towns located directly on the Rhine. Numerous well-known wineries, outstanding restaurants, the castle Schloss Vollrads and the lovely scenery of the countryside ensure that the area offers an abundance of leisure options. The town has direct railway connections, and a convenient network of roads and autobahn highways is easily accessible. Daycare facilities for pre-schoolers, schools and an extensive range of activities for children and adolescents right in town and in the surrounding area also make Oestrich-Winkel a very interesting option for families with children.
