Looks can be deceptive when it comes to this Bauhaus-style villa in Other Hessen, Hessen, Germany.
It looks like a well maintained or perhaps renovated 1930s modernist build. Thats probably the point. But the reality is a 2006 property, the work of a ‘well known architect’ (no name given) who has created something new, but with more than a hint of the old.
At least, from the outside. We love the angles, the windows, the spiral stairway and the balcony space, as well as the bold white finish that ensures this place jumps out of the surrounding countryside.
The white theme continues inside, with a clean, almost clinical finish and so much natural light from the oversized glazing. Plenty of designer touches too, not least with the high ceilings, the open tread staircase, the built-in storage and the luxury kitchen and bathroom areas, the latter featuring a bathtub designed by Philippe Starck. High end living, that’s for sure.
According to the agent, the house also features a solar energy system, an open fireplace, ‘Japanese shading elements’ in the living area and electrically operated blinds and roller shutters. So plenty of functionality with the style.
In terms of living space, that covers around 3,498 sq. ft. in total, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms listed, as well as four terraces and a balcony and the high end kitchen, which was custom-made by a cabinetmaker. Also here are lady’s and gentleman’s dressing rooms, a children’s area with en suite bathroom and separate terrace and of course, lots of bright reception space to enjoy after a tough day of…well, whatever you need to do to pay for this. Oh yes, a wine cellar too if that’s your tipple.
Just under an acre of land outside, described as an ‘easy-care garden’, plus several garages and parking spaces too.
If you like the idea of some old school modernism with a new school finish, this place is up for sale at €2,300,000.
