This villa in Dahlem has a base floor, raised ground floor, 1st floor and an attic that has not yet been developed, which has large room heights due to the hipped roof shape so that it can be used as additional living space. This leads to a total living area of 420 m² (including the basement and the developed roof). The property has 880 m² and is secluded due to its elevated position compared to street level (2 m difference).
The 11 rooms are spread over the different levels. On the mezzanine floor there is a living room with a lush bay window, a master bedroom, an open kitchen and dining area with a door to the terrace and garden, a former kitchen with a pantry (now a washing machine and dryer area) and a guest toilet.
The mezzanine floor and the 1st floor are connected by a very large, high staircase. The design of the building was based on representation. Visitors and residents experienced an expanse and spaciousness that is still fascinating today.
A second staircase in the building (from the mezzanine floor to the basement floor) was reserved for the staff and the suppliers. This separation has also been preserved to this day.
On the 1st floor there are master bedrooms, 2 children's rooms, dressing room, 2 large bathrooms, each with a bathtub, shower and double washbasin and balcony or terrace. This space alone exudes pure luxury.
The basement, which can almost be described as the ground floor, contains the guest apartment, work room, meeting room, storage room, boiler room, etc. - that is, there is enough space / space.
The authenticity of the villa can of course be found inside and outside. This includes the room sizes with their room heights (approx. 3.2 m) and the merging through two-leaf, high door elements with glass cassettes. Pure spatial experience, combined with views between the rooms and the garden. Stucco, windows of various formats structured by bars, oak parquet laid in the shape of ears, wooden radiator cladding, historical door frames with matching door leaves, etc. reflect the full splendor of this era. Panels, especially those in the staircase, are also included here.
The dominance of the preservation of the old can also be felt on the first floor. Details such as the old brass window handles or the wooden railing to the stairwell can be mentioned here. From up here you can also experience the spaciousness of the staircase, through the view from the gallery back to the entrance. A small highlight here is the oval window to the former kitchen.
In addition to the history, renovations play an essential role in the function and overall appearance of this villa. Ambitiously designed bathrooms with elements from Duravit and various other technical innovations guarantee comfort that meets the expectations of 2020. Of course, the kitchen is also a highlight - a large kitchen block by Bulthaup with stainless steel worktop, Gaggenau gas hob (5-burner), Gutmann exhaust system (in the block), retractable socket strip, double door stainless steel refrigerator with ICE maker, separate oven tower with Gaggenau steamer and oven, Siemens dishwasher - and all at working height.
The outside area is of course also designed to be sophisticated. The landscaped garden with partly old trees and an irrigation system also offers a paved barbecue area, a garden shed, a sandpit, a recessed trampoline and an illuminated facade for the evening moments.
Other highlights include: video intercom, alarm system with video surveillance, paved driveway with large metal gates, flanked by large white pillars and a separate pedestrian gate.
A feel-good atmosphere is a very appropriate term that describes this property. A cultivated environment is also part of it, and that in the elegant Dahlem district.
Basement floor: 114 m²
Raised ground floor: 137.58 m²
1st floor: 105.81 m²
Expansion reserve in the attic: 62.89 m²
Current condition: 357 m² of living space and 443 m² of usable space
Expansion potential: 13 rooms with approx. 420 m² of living space and 443 m² of usable space (including attic extension)
Ideally, you could set up your own practice or office with a separate entrance on the basement and live on the two floors above on around 243 m² (plus the expansion reserve in the attic)
Alternatively, the floor plan can also be easily adapted so that the current division can be completely reopened and all three floors can be completely connected again.
The building dates from 1911 and is one of the classic, historicist country houses. Striking elements here are the mighty hipped roof, the cube-shaped structure with restrained loosening by bay windows and entrance stairs with roofing, the basement level framed by sandstone shaped as a rustic facade and the small sprouting of the large standing rectangular and oval window formats.
The entire appearance of the villa is characterized by a wealth of variety and diversity that result in a skilful whole. This building exudes splendor, dignity, grandeur. History in one of the most beautiful forms that can be experienced directly. This is striking in that such gems are rarely available without well-intentioned interventions, which, however, affect the great overall impression rather than enhance it. Here you get authentic architectural history with all its qualities, which of course also includes the environment. Tree-lined avenues on both sides, including the paving of the street and sidewalk, magnificent gardens with large, tall trees and preserved fences, bricked with the associated wooden or iron railings, are among them.
One lives here in the tradition of upper-class living without having to forego the comforts of the present. This of course includes the car, for which a garage is available on the property. Historic architecture paired with mature green create this unique ambience that you can experience here. Something special for connoisseurs and people who appreciate it.
The Villa Mahrenholz is located in the renowned Dahlem district. The environment is characterized by buildings that are also extremely valuable from a historical point of view, e.g. by Hans Scharoun (Haus Scharf). The intrinsic value of this quarter can also be recognized by the fact that embassies are based here.
Culture and park life is offered by the neighboring Messelpark, where you can go jogging in the morning, and the Botanical Garden, where you can marvel at over 22,000 plant species and experience the fascinating flora of the tropics and subtropics in the tropical house.
The Domäne Dahlem is a highlight, especially for children. Formerly a manor, it is now an open-air museum for agricultural and food culture and you can discover many animals on the site and experience the various work on a farm.
If you would like to have a delicious bite to eat in the evening, go to the Machiavelli restaurant, 4 minutes away, where you can enjoy wonderful freshly caught fish.
In terms of transport, you are very well connected and you can reach Ku'Damm in just 9 minutes, and you are at BER Airport in 26 minutes and from there you can reach the rest of the world in no time.
