Gelnhausen, Hesse 63571, Germany (approximate)
Description: “Two mature trees serving central focal points, cubes with various different proportions arranged around the central element (the stairway) – that is the essential idea behind a Bauhaus-style villa that has no parallel anywhere in the country … conceived by a well-known architect.
Designed to radiate absolute harmony and realised in 2006 using the highest quality of materials, this villa affords its occupants a breathtaking view of nature at its purest: nothing but gently rolling hills and subtle colour variations in the surrounding mixed forests – and the Frankfurt skyline in the distance.
This masterpiece achieves an amalgam of openness and simple, puristic elegance, but without foregoing an atmosphere of cosy comfort: for example, you can relax in the living area with its almost church-like atmosphere (ceiling height 5.65 m) – letting your gaze wander between the flickering fire in the open fireplace, the fascinating vastness of the world outside and the dining area with its massive table and ceiling-height bookshelves…
A fascinating lifestyle environment with a total of 325sq m of living area² on three levels and also including many internal oases of privacy for its occupants – rounded off by a large number of multifunctional rooms that can be adapted to highly individual inclinations and dispositions, such as the separate studio building.
THE SPECIAL FEATURES:
The property is situated directly adjacent to a nature conservation area; the lower level was built using solid construction, the ground floor and upper level are a timber structure (thus achieving a perfect interior climate); heat pump and roughed-in pre-installation of a solar energy system, open fireplace, four terraces and a balcony, Japanese shading elements in the living area, sun protection in all living areas, electrically operated blinds and roller shutters, built-in kitchen custom-made by a cabinetmaker using regional woods, numerous built-in cabinets, solid-wood bog oak flooring, sauna, free-standing bathtub designed by Philippe Starck, lady’s and gentleman’s dressing rooms each with a separate en suite bathroom, guest room with en suite bathroom, children’s area with en suite bathroom and separate terrace, regional sandstone elements in the garden, rainwater cistern, wine cellar, easy-care garden, several garages and parking spaces.
The town of Gelnhausen, which is nicknamed “Barbarossastadt” after its founder Emperor Frederick Barbarossa, is the capital of the District of Main-Kinzig. It is approx. 45 minutes away from Frankfurt by car and provides every conceivable amenity: numerous shopping options offering items needed for day-to-day living as well specialised retail shops catering to the fashion, handicrafts and stationery segments etc. and of course outstanding sightseeing attractions as well as the lovingly restored old town centre with its half-timbered houses and additional examples of medieval architecture.
Furthermore, the town also offers daycare facilities for preschoolers, elementary schools and well-reputed institutes of higher education such as the secondary schools Grimmelshauser Gymnasium and Kopernikusschule.
The villa is situated in a quiet location at the edge of the forest. It is accessed via a cul-de-sac road leading through a delightful beech forest, so the approach to the house is already a relaxing experience.
