Where the Havel gently meanders alongside the Elbe, you will find this beautiful property which is so in harmony with heaven, air and earth. The superbly maintained ensemble of two separate buildings on a plot of over 1,000 m² offers a great deal of peace and quiet and of plenty space for creativity. Whether in the garden, in the house which nestles under a beautiful thatched roof, or out in the beauty of nature, always true to the words of Goethe “Here I am Man, here dare it to be!”.
On the water’s edge: Idyllic bungalow and guest house with garden, wonderful views and pier
On this secluded waterfront property, which served as the residence of the previous owners for more than 20 years, there is a bungalow which was built in 2005 and a thatched guest house which was built in 1995. Both houses are in extremely good condition and provide about 120 m² of living area, taken together.
The thatched house was completely renovated in 2014, has Spanish tiles throughout the bathroom, a whirlpool tub and a large walk-in shower as well as a handbasin and its own toilet. A storage heater and auxiliary heaters provide warmth. A complete fitted kitchen with a dishwasher, fridge-freezer, cooker and much more is present, as well as the comfortable double bed with an adjustable slatted bed base which is to be found under the gables. The bungalow, with floor to ceiling windows facing out across the water, is laid with Italian tile and heated by underfloor heating. The upmarket bathroom with shower and bathtub is completely made of marble and the bedroom floor is laid with Solnhofen limestone; a stone which is appreciated around the world for its beauty and durability. The open living area provides space for a comfortable kitchen, which is connected to a utility room, as well as a large dining area. There is an additional room which can be used as a study or a second bedroom.
Outdoors, a total of three generously-proportioned patios invite you to linger, one with a large awning and various seats, each one for 2-4 people, as well as a large natural stone table with 10 seats just underneath an old coppiced willow. The garden not only has an enchanting collection of old trees, with chestnut, maple, fruit trees and willow, but the lovingly arranged garden paths, which are set with natural stone, and surrounded by roses, lavender, hydrangeas and rhododendron, invite you to enjoy a stroll in your own little kingdom. We must not forget the greenhouse, of course, which invites one to experiment, and may well awaken passions which were hitherto unknown. Numerous connections for water and power (the carport also has a three-phase supply) simplify the management of house and garden. The carport is also suitable for use as a workshop and has a large parking area paved with natural stone.
A set of natural stone steps takes you down to the banks of the Havel and the idyllic pier, where you can fish, swim, read, or just relax…
