This turn-of-the-century villa (1894/1895) exudes all the splendor and luxury of that era. Noble living in good tradition and with everything that goes with it. Large, high rooms (e.g. 3.4 m) with the most beautiful proportions and original stucco are just a few of the highlights. Parquet floors with different types of wood in an inlay-like design as well as plank floors create a cozy atmosphere. Windows, imposing in size and number, especially when they are lined up, give the rooms this stately character. The self-supporting staircase also makes entering the building an experience.
The newly designed bathrooms partly refer to the history by using different types of marble. But there are also modern versions, such as the black and white bathroom on the 1st floor.
You can almost get lost in the multitude of rooms (16 rooms) on the different floors. Space is abundant here and opens up a wide range of possible uses.
If required the shown inventory can also be purchased.
Tradition, architectural history and garden art can be enjoyed here every day and that in the immediate catchment area of Hamburg.

Villa Rieck belongs to the villa district by the Bille river, which was built by wealthy Hamburgers between 1867-1914 and has been preserved until today. The proximity to Hamburg and the Hamburg-Berlin railway line, built in 1846, made this area extremely attractive for the well-off Hamburg merchants. The development plan only provided for stately buildings.
Here you can already see the special history of the Rieck family's property, which has an impressive size of around one hectare (9.960 m²). Based on Palladio's villas around Venice, similar "country houses" were created here.
Located on a slight hill, you can see the park and your own lake (approx. 1.098 m²). The lower end is the Bille River with its own landing stage. The entire garden is linked to English landscape gardens with baroque elements. The bridge at the end of the lake is reminiscent of Monet's garden in Giverny. All of this is an expression of a cultural awareness that forms the environment and in which people lived.
The building also ties in with the history, as its design was based on classicism. Designed in 1894 by the architectural duo Jungclaus & Rathje and expanded in 1912 for the growing family, the building impresses with its unique beauty, especially due to its prominent secluded location. Two-storey, with a tower-like risalit, the building appears rather austere, to which the closure that appears from below as a flat roof also contributes. The roof overhang is filled in and adorned with a powerful frieze. The large, high windows, structured with numerous, filigree bars, are of course precisely and regularly arranged. The amount of large windows allow for all rooms to be showered in natural light and warmth of the sun.
The building is embellished with plastering flasks, cornices, friezes, set off in white with a pale pink as the basic color. Much like a portal, the original and well preserved entrance door beautifies the building. The size of the area allows a stately driveway. It is this unique combination of architecture and landscape that makes this facility so impressive. A design gem that is second to none. It is hard to believe that something like this can still be bought.
Modern technology, pool house (currently not in operation), sauna etc. are of course included; but swimming in your own lake or a boat trip cannot be replaced. Another special feature is the own water source, which rises on the property. The water feeds the natural lake and was used as a separate drinking water supply for the family for many years before the villa was connected to the Hamburg city water.
An incredibly unique chance to buy such a regal and grand object in Hamburg.
The idyllic location with its walking distance to the center of Reinbek is very popular and offers a beautiful infrastructure. There are small delicatessen shops like Tevekkül Feinkost or Feinkost H. Rathmann as well as a very well-stocked Rewe. Those who prefer to have a sophisticated dinner in the evening can sit in the Bringezu restaurant not only beautifully right by Reinbek Castle with a mill pond, but also find an upscale menu with marinated tuna tataki or Argentinian entrècote. The Lorenzino restaurant also offers delicious Italian dishes throughout the day.
There are good grammar schools (including the Wentorf grammar school), which also have a direct connection to a primary school and several daycare centers such as the Schneckenhäuschen. The respected St. Adolfstifter Hospital is also nearby.
Reinbek Castle, which is just a five-minute walk away, provides cultural variety with various concerts, theater performances and more.
A trip to the popular Sachsenwald nearby offers a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature. Sports enthusiasts will find a great variety of activities like: golf, tennis, horseback riding, and cycling. The TTK Tontaubenklub is located in one of the most beautiful family and country club facilities in Germany and here you can play hockey, tennis, swim and even enjoy the private lake with its own beach.
