From the front of the house it looks like a "typical" house from the former East. As I saw the house I fell in love with the story and the history and wanted to bring it back to life. After four years of hard work it is a space of warmth, creation and joy! The house will always be a work in progress, but the house on the ground floor is tastefully finished.
The garden is totally private, protected by lots of greenery and old stone walls. Once you close the garden gate you are in your own paradise.
If you are looking for the "perfect" house which is finished with designer bathroom fixtures and a perfectly manicured garden, this is not the holiday home for you. My house is creative, unique and functional but it is an old farmhouse.
Guests have private use of the entire house and garden .
