About our home

Our villa has been built in 1910. In 2009 we fully renovated and re-organized building and garden. Importance has been paid to the usage of genuine and high-quality materials. The atmosphere is friendly, modern and yet "old-fashioned".

In the groundfloor you will find the entrance area with the wardrobes. Through the corridor with the staircase you enter the spacious kitchen which opens up to the dining area and the garden. Connected to the kitchen on the other side there is the living room. Also on this floor there is our home office and a small bathroom with shower and toilet.

The old wooden staircase in the center of the house leads you to the first floor. On the left hand you will find the children's section: three playrooms - two with bunk beds and one with a baby bed - and an extra bathroom with shower etc. On the right hand side is the master bedroom with a terrific view into the garden, the master bathroom with shower, bath tub and two basins, our dressing room and the balcony.

On the top floor there are two more rooms. One of them is used as a studio, the other is a guest room with a double bed. Also here you find a bathroom with shower and a seperate toilet.

The entire house is protected by a modern alarm, inter-phone and fire alarm system. You have internet access all over the house with 32 mb/sec.

The property is about 1.300 qm. Connected to the kitchen and the dining room is a wide spread out wodden terrace. In the back of the garden is the molding box with a water pump for the kids and our swing in the old tree. (Needless to say there is lots of stuff to play with in the garden house like bobby and pedal car, kids tractor and digger, beach toys etc.). We have two deck chairs and a barbecue grill (not the Argentinian size though ...) and the typical Bavarian beer tent furniture. Diverse parasol provide shade in the summer time.


More about us

  1. We are a married couple in our mid / late thirties with three children aged 6, 5 and 2 years old. My husband is actually a chef but is now working in the digital printing business. I am a graphic designer, work home based and spend lots of time taking care of the kids and the household. We are open minded, quite traditional in some aspects and very modern in others. My husband is into culinary art, race bikes and sports, I am more interested in culture, art and design and leisure!

    We would like to travel the world and get to know new places, cultures and people - like we did before we had kids :-) but now - to our great pleasure - together with them. We are looking forward to showing them around and are not neccessarily looking for "same same but different". We are quite adventurous and love the ocean, the sea, the lakes, the sun, the mountains and the snow. Apart from rainy weather all day long we are open to everything.

    If you are interested in changing your home with us feel free to contact us. We would be also happy to give advice what to do around here and tip you off with regards to your interests and needs.

Where is it?


Our home is located in the South-West of Berlin. It is a very friendly and nice neighbourhood with the lakes, (Schlachtensee, Krumme Lanke, Nikolassee and Wannsee) and its attached greens and parks nearby. If you travel with children you will find it comfortable because house and garden are spacious and you can spend lots of time outside. If you travel without children you might enjoy the silent nights and the beautiful surrounding. If you are looking for Berlin's wild side you have a safe initial point to start your adventures ...

... You reach Berlin center "West" (i.e. Ku-Damm, Memorial Church, KaDeWe) within 15 min. by car or 20 min. by train. Two train stations are within waling distance (app. 5 min.). Potsdamer Platz is about 20 min. by car and 25 min. by train. You will get to Berlin center "East" (i.e. Hackescher Markt, Friedrichstraße, Check Point Charlie) within 30 min. via train and 35 min. by car - depending on the traffic and time of course. Nice places to dicover like Friedrichshain or Kollwitzplatz are app. 45 min. away from where we live. The historic center of Potsdam is about 10 min. drive by car or train.

Berlin offers romantic spots, classy restaurants, underground nightlife - Currywurst and caviar! It is still changing and re-inventing itself every day. It can be calm or loud, modern or historic, fast or slow, rural or urban, natural or artificial ... It offers lots of history, culture and music good shopping and a various nightlife. For us Berlin is good for a visit no matter how old you are and what you are interested in.
