1907 was an exciting year for the City of Wiesbaden. After a three-year construction period, the city’s new “Kurhaus” was inaugurated with German Emperor William II in attendance; there was definitely a need for the new building after Wiesbaden was designated a “world spa city” at the end of the 19th century. The “Landeshaus” was also opened the same year. An also very magnificent building itself reflects the splendour and significance of Wiesbaden during that era.
That spirit is also very evident in this magnificent villa with its picturesque façade in the Louis XVI (Louis-Seize) style. The individual interior rooms feature outstanding décor and fittings embellished by Louis XVI touches and particularly lovely Art Nouveau elements. Every single room is a thing of beauty in itself. The original elements are all extremely well preserved, and some have already been restored. Nevertheless, extensive renovation measures are necessary.
This is exactly the right property for anyone who loves beautiful older villas and attaches importance to original features. While the floor plan fulfils contemporary requirements completely, it is necessary to update this villa by means of a restoration carried out with the utmost care in order to achieve a modern standard of living that ties in with the splendour of the 1910 years of the last century.
It is truly a one-of-a-kind property that radiates a sense of permanence in our fast-moving age.
Numerous original stylistic elements: detailed decorative plasterwork ceilings, wall panelling, original gas fireplace (de-commissioned), parquet flooring laid in intricate patterns, dumb waiter, original floor and wall tiles in the former kitchen on the basement level, sliding doors featuring elaborately decorated portal-like doorframes, original Art Nouveau door hardware, lovely window frames, artistically valuable lead glazing - some original and some restored, marvellous radiator screen in the entrance foyer, beautiful tiled oven (decorative element), two-piece bath for guests, very well proportioned and designed garden.
