Far from the hustle and bustle of the big city, and surrounded by forests and lakes, this fantastic wooden house awaits you on a 627 m² plot on the edge of a peaceful settlement. Ideal for couples and small families alike, it provides for an exceptionally healthy lifestyle. From the ground all the way up to its tiled roof, this detached house is largely built of wood, the oldest and most sustainable building material known to mankind. Thanks to the excellent infrastructure of the surrounding area and the fast roads into Berlin, residents find themselves well provided for and able to access all that the capital has to offer in an instant.
Built in 2005, this very solid detached wooden house has about 155 m² of living area spread across two floors, a beautiful garden, a separate garage with an electric garage door and many splendid extras, including a fireplace and two outdoor decks made of balau wood. The ground floor, which is tiled throughout, provides plenty of space as well as flexibility in terms of how you choose to structure it to suit your lifestyle. On entering the house, which is mainly built of western red cedar, one first passes through a 6 m² vestibule, which also provides access to a guest toilet. One then enters the hallway, with a doorway to the wonderful living and dining area on the right. This well-cared-for wooden house, with ceiling beams of Douglas fir, has a footprint of just over 42 m². The doors between rooms are made of maple. A further aesthetic highlight, which provides cosiness and comfort during the cooler time of year, is the organic design of the ceramic heat storing fireplace and the heatable stove bench.
From both the hallway and the dining area you enter the 13 m² kitchen, with its cleverly laid out arrangement of appliances and furniture. From here, a door opens out onto the large south-facing deck. The dining portion of the living area also provides direct access to the large expanse of decking and the garden beyond. Here, tasteful flowerbeds, elegant broadleaf trees, and beautiful fruit trees alternate with areas of lawn and delicate bushes. Bamboo hedges provide a dense natural visual screen around the property. In the garden there is also a woodshed with six separate chambers, as well as a toolshed. A staircase of pest resistant red cedar takes one up to the upper floor of the house. The upper floor consists of three bedrooms, a storage room, and the tiled bathroom, which has a bathtub and two handbasins. The house is optimised for energy efficiency and heated by means of underfloor heating.
The architectural concept and the high standard of construction mean that this house fits into the surrounding forests and undisturbed nature perfectly. In the middle of the beautiful and much-loved landscape of Barnim, with its many pristine lakes, this house is located just north of Berlin. It is only a 45-minute drive to the heart of the capital and the lakes of Liepnitzsee, Wandlitzer See and Rahmersee are quite literally “just around the corner”. A supermarket, nursery school, primary school and secondary school (gymnasium) are all within walking distance, as are the bus stop and the local railway station, with a connection to Berlin. The locality benefits from a variety of restaurants. To sum up: come and live where others go on holiday.
