Villa Ramholz

Schlüchtern, Germany

Property Description


The house consists of a two-storey building in block construction and a long-range, single-storey garden wing with generous panoramic glazing. The Villa Ramholz was built in 2004 in country house style with a Mediterranean influence and was only used until 2008 for 3 - 4 days a month. Since 2009, it is no longer inhabited, but still technically supervised by staff and kept in order. A perfect combination of classical forms and modern - both representative and yet playful details. This house is not just for the pure function of living, but was created to live and enjoy.

The main building is completely built from logs that were "chopped" on the outside. In this way, this unique object gets its distinctive appearance. The living area is architecturally only seemingly a breach to the adjacent blockhouse area. The part of the building opening to the garden with living room, kitchen and dining area and wellness area with whirlpool, sauna and shower is a glued wood structure with large panoramic windows, in which special thermal insulation glass was installed.

The entire interior walls are made of solid wood and radiate a positive and reassuring atmosphere. The ornaments on the ceilings in the living area, the wrought-iron railings on the spiral staircase and the gallery and the iron and stone statues on the roof act playfully and deliberately make the character of a small Tuscany Castle together with the mullioned windows. They are part of the overall conception, which clearly gives the idea: "This house is to be lived in, not just used!"


Several parking spaces are available to the visitors of Villa Ramholz. With 4,545 sqm size the project is situated in a well-dimensioned single location. A swimming pool allows the residents a leap straight from the sauna on the terrace into the cool water. The views from the large windows can be described only as "stunning": a wide valley of meadows and pastures, surrounded by forest and surrounded by gently rising mountains. The outdoor lighting bathes the building in the evening time in a spectacular light and highlights the Mediterranean character of the building to its best.

The two-storey front of Villa Ramholz is in the prestigious, very classic style. You enter the house through the large entrance portal, where the front door is integrated. It can also be fully open, thus signalling openness and transparency. As a country house, the building is always a place for socialising and for contacts at a very individual level.

The 43 sqm large foyer underlines the representative character of the building. In the blockhouse tract on the ground floor, next to the well proportioned entry foyer, there is a separate bedroom with a bathroom. A storage room and a direct access to the garage are located on the opposite side. Via the big spiral staircase with 2.5 metres in diameter you reach the gallery decorated with wrought-iron railings. The staircase itself is cantilever designed around a central spindle. The spacious gallery leads to the rooms on the first floor.

There you will find two living areas with three additional bedrooms and each with en suite bathroom. The two large bathrooms are lined with large marble slabs. From the gallery you have a wonderful view of the foyer on one side and the connected, 120 sqm large kitchen, dining, living area, fitness and wellness area and the underlying unobstructed nature.

A dream made of wood, steel and glass. It is divided into three parts without walls:

• the kitchen / dining area, and thanks to the large panoramic glass, it is possible to have breakfast directly in the nature,
• the living area with open fireplace, which is a feature especially in the winter months, that you do not want to do without,
• the fitness and wellness area with heated whirlpool, sauna, shower and ergometer.

The purpose of this house is quite clearly revealed here: to offer the homeowner as much luxury as possible. These three living areas store on four pillars and allow a fully transparent implementation of walls made of glass, with no separation between the areas. The owner has put much emphasis on natural light. This falls over pyramids of light in the foyer and the living area.

With a total living area of 300 sqm Villa Ramholz is a building with the current state-of-the-art technology despite its neo-classical, Mediterranean outward appearance. Exclusively biomass (wood pellets and wood) is used for heating. In the basement, you find the equipment for the whirlpool, an air drying device and a large air heat exchanger with pollen filter. Through this combination, a sensitive, intelligent dosing of room temperature in every room is possible, which is not self-evident in buildings of this size. The basement rooms make up two-thirds of the ground plan of the building. Here, there is a fuel storage room, a wine cellar, a bathroom, a utility and pantry room all located next to the boiler room. The Villa Ramholz was regularly maintained and renovated and demonstrates current state-of-the-art technology. It is immediately ready for occupation, which means that the entire furniture is included in the purchase price (all carpets, pictures, lamps, linens, utensils etc.).
