Cultural Monument

Outstanding features of the cultural monument are the octagonal tower with a pointed pyramid helmet, an elaborate stone gable, historicist half-timbered figurations and rich carvings on the pillar-like posts as well as numerous sandstone figures and pillars. The large wooden windows with elaborate glazing bars provide plenty of daylight in the interior. Elaborately restored historic solid wood floorboards and parquet floors made of beautiful Canadian pitch pine hardwood enliven the hallways and rooms with their colour tones and patterns and always ensure a very pleasant living environment. All walls have been newly plastered, with fine plaster in the hallway.

The picture gallery shows some of the special features of the façade e.g., the half-timbering partially decorated with gold leaf and the sandstone figures.

Listed cultural monuments are exempt from many (energy) regulations and offer owners interesting tax benefits. Owner-occupiers can deduct 90% (§10f) and landlords 100% (§7i) of all refurbishment costs from their income tax. In addition, the villa has already been honoured several times with a special award from the lower monument protection authority and has received financial support. The authority’s requirements relate to the façade; the interiors are not affected and can be freely designed.
