External qualities Nestled in a lush, park-like garden populated with mature trees, this expressive and elegant residence is a true rarity. The Wilhelmine-era villa was constructed in 1888 and is now a listed building. It was fully and meticulously renovated last year and furnished to an exceptionally high standard. During the lavish and expertly executed renovation, special effort was made to restore the original style of the villa while providing a contemporary modernisation. The magnificent villa, which is on a site of approx. 2,793 sq. m, is accessed via a small private road. Altogether this property offers you a main building, three garages, a 22-m-long private lakefront and a wonderful water terrace with your own marina. The design of this ensemble of villas affords a high degree of privacy and security. Interior qualities The impressive entrance immediately creates a sophisticated ambience and leads you straight to a beautiful foyer featuring a stunning original lead glass window. The living space of around 530 sq. m is spread across two levels, and consists of 11 spacious rooms plus 5 bathrooms/shower rooms. An exceptionally cosy atmosphere is created by the fine materials that are used on the floors and walls of the stylish living and dining room, and indeed throughout the house. The beautiful library and large windows add to this sense of cosiness. With its open fireplace, the living room is the perfect place to spend a few hours snuggled up in front of the fire. The study, which looks out on to the lake, is on the left and features an illuminated double-sided glass cabinet through which you can see the dining room. The south terrace offers a fantastic view of the lake and can be accessed from the conservatory. It is also linked to the dining area. The luxuriously outfitted designer kitchen (by bulthaup) has an island and breakfast bar and is attached to the living room. The top-grade appliances include a side-by-side refrigerator with a crushed ice maker, an induction hob with a memory function, a plate warmer and much more exclusive kitchen equipment. A self-contained apartment with a living space of 63 sq. m is located on the ground floor. This lovely two-room apartment is divided into a spacious living room featuring French doors leading on to a partly covered terrace, a fully equipped eat-in kitchen, a bright bedroom and a modern, naturally lit bathroom. This apartment is perfectly designed for accommodating staff or for living and working under one roof. A slightly curved staircase leads from the main entrance to the first floor, which is the house’s private area. The secluded parent´s area faces south. The master bedroom features a gallery, skylights and a high ceiling. The fabulous roof terrace, which offers outstanding views of the lake, is a real highlight. The designer bathroom gleams with exclusive, modern fittings, including a free-standing bathtub, a flush-to-floor illuminated rain shower (“Phillip Starck Shower Heaven”) and other special features. The nursery or study also offers plenty of space: around 93 sq. m of living space divided among three light-flooded rooms. An equipped laundry room completes this level of the house. You will find the key to rest and relaxation in the basement. This unique wellness oasis is fitted with a Klafs sauna/saunarium with 5 climate zones, a top-grade wellness shower and a whirlpool with a relaxation area, and provides direct access to the garden and lake. The hobby or party room, which contains a wine cellar, is well positioned on this floor. The other two rooms can be used in many different ways, as this area is connected to the kitchen and has a naturally lit en-suite bathroom. In terms of furnishings, fittings and technology, this property is second to none. It is a historically valuable building that is exquisitely fitted and furnished and thus demonstrates the contemporary quality new buildings.
