Property Details

This impressive villa was erected on a waterside plot sloping slightly towards the Lake, is several storeys high, as was usual at the time, on the one hand to represent and on the other in order to extend the already impressive panoramic views even further. Today a modern lift connects the various levels. The villa was arranged over a total of 4 storeys, with a fully useable basement (also with view of the Lake) and 3 living floors with reversed image layouts which have led to an interesting design effect. Each floor has a living area of approx. 227 sq. m., ground floor and first floor have large terraces and beautiful balconies; a lift and a marble staircase connect the 4 levels.

The villa, designed in the Liberty style popular at that time, offers interesting architectural features such as linearity and asymmetry in the forms. Materials in varying shades of colour were used as well as an abundance of decorative elements such as stucco ceilings and ornaments with floral and botanical decorations as well as wrought-iron and glass.

The villa was completely restored about 2001. In doing so importance was placed on the use of only top-quality materials applied by highly qualified craftsmen. The existing floors are partly still the original ones with precious mosaics and historic parquet. Specially selected marble was used for stairs, bathrooms and fireplaces.

The wrought-iron gratings, gates and banisters are of beautiful and dominant manufacture. Stucco work and frescoes decorate ceilings and vaults, and marble pillars enhance the salons that open up the panoramic view of the Lake and hills with their broad windows.

The outdoor fountain, the urns on the terrace, several of the indoor fireplaces, are all antiques, partly with expertise.

The conservatively accomplished restoration has preserved the charm of the past in unchanged manner and thanks to the professionalism of the interior architect engaged on the project who has cleverly and sensitively integrated state-of-the-art technology including the lift in the original style of the house, a villa of exquisite elegance in an unusual quality and with modern functionality has been created.

The ground floor is divided up as follows: spacious entrance area, large living room with fireplace, music room, large dining room, complete Gaggenau kitchen with stainless steel centre block from Italy, guest WC, cloakroom, lift and marble staircase, preceded by a large stylish terrace facing the lake with open staircase to the garden and lake.

The 1st floor has a large vestibule, master bedroom with balcony, spacious marble bathroom with double hydro-massage tub, shower, Turkish bath, etc., dressing room, a further bedroom with bathroom and a small 2-room apartment with bathroom and a large terrace.

The 2nd floor also includes the area of the tower and is laid out as follows: vestibule, library with balcony, archive, large living room with fireplace, bathroom with full-sized bath, guest room with bathroom and laundry/utility room.

The basement also with a good 200 sq. m. utility space can be reached either via the lift or the inside staircase or through a separate entrance from the garden.

This level has been divided into 2 zones: in a living area with large office and archive, kitchenette, bath and billiard room, fitness room and relaxation room, whereas in the other part there are service rooms such as the wine cellar, lift technology, heating room etc. and an underground passage to the annexe that was built next to the villa.

The annexe was built in 2001 together with the new entrance to the main building. It was constructed on two levels following the terraces of the plot.

On the ground floor (street level) there is a garage for 4 cars, under this on the garden level a large room, suitable e.g. as a billiard room, also a kitchenette, sauna, dressing room, shower and WC, in front of this a large covered terrace with large Tessin-style fireplace and columns to the swimming pool.

On several levels the terraced garden offers various zones well- tended with regard to their plants and features.

A picturesque fountain enhances the part of the garden that is situated in front
of the villa in the direction of the Lake.

On the opposite side there is the vast swimming pool that was designed so that the water in the pool appears to join up with the water in the Lake.

One terrace lower down was arranged as a boccia pitch.
