The Villa is located in the very popular area of suburban Hamburg named Ottensen directly at the Elbchaussee. The river Elbe is a minute to walk. Build in 1903 by the architects Schaar and Hinzpeter after a design for a tobacco factory, this villa was bought in 1932 by the city and served as the home of the land cadastre of Altona. Situated just off the Elbchaussee on a park property of approx. 2000 square metres, the property was acquired in 1996 by a private developer, and underwent an intensive and detailed restoration in coordination with the Hamburg office of monument conservation, for which the developer was honored with an award for historic conservation in 2005. The current owner acquired the spacious villa in 2006 and used it as an impressive residence of his globally operating company. The villa has a living space of approximately 1500 square metres, and it comes with highly elegant stucco on the mezzanine floor and in the belletage. In addition to its other rooms, including a study, library, and conservatory, a mezzanine floor impresses with its historical mirrored hall of approximately 15 meters, whose ceilings and walls are decorated with gold accented stucco. Typical Art Nouveau elements include the beautiful oak hardwood floors, the elegant sliding doors and in the authentic, cast-iron radiators, as well as the representative dark wood stairs in the about 10m high entrance hall. On the first floor there are six rooms that were probably intended to serve as the sleeping rooms in the original design. Two large balconies, two bathrooms and toilets add to the comfort of living on this floor. The roof is built on two levels, and has about 480 square metres of living space and an approx. 100 square metres roof terrace with view on the Elbe. A separate entrance leads to the basement, which is designed as a modern office floor. In addition to a second staircase in the rear, a modern and spacious lift connects the floors. The villa also benefits from environmentally friendly technologies, such as solar power and rainwater harvesting. Four underground and ten outdoor parking spaces on the property complement this unique offer. The property can be used both for residential and commercial purposes. Its location, the exceptionally good historical condition, its optimal space allocation and utilization, and its unique and stately presence lift this impressive property into the stand of the luxury residences on the Elbe and the Hanseatic city of Hamburg.
