  • Description


    My boyfriend and I bought an old house, this is under monumental protection and was built anno 1400. Even Goethe has lived in this house. :-)
    We are currently renovating and would be very happy about support.
    The house has 360 square meters of living space, a huge garden and a not yet developed lodger flat.

    Above all we want to redesign the garden and use it for our own cultivation of fruit and vegetables.

    We also have 2 large dogs and a cat.

    The old stable is also to be rebuilt on the site for 2 or 3 horses.

    The house is located directly at the nature reserve and it is very suitable for hiking.
    There are also small villages around, the area is very idyllic and beautiful.

    Here your are a free spirit you could help in the graden or in the house or with the animals, what you prefer!

    You could love in an relaxed environment and enjoy the nature and the peace or could explore the little villages near by with their old history.

    Or could connect with our neighbors, with a few "hippies", the local residents with their stories to tell about the war and other interested stories. Our neighbors are a very mixed group of people but really nice and kind.
