Villa Villa Beckmann - room for your holidays

Riverfront villa with kitchen and balcony
Our spacious listed holiday villa is three stories and offers plenty of space for your holidays - it invites you to linger.
It is located only 400 meters from the historic market square, overlooking the monastery complex, Kinzigtorturm and Kinzig. The villa is located on the edge of a large park in a large garden. In this garden is a wine covered gazebo. This arbor, even on very warm days, is a pleasant "cool" oasis. The garden is mostly surrounded by a hedge and almost completely secluded.
Left flows a brook along the property along the front flows 50 meters away the Kinzig past the house.
Directly from the house, one can of:
short walks along the Kinzig along or in the nearby vineyards, to extensive day hikes.

This Art Nouveau villa was designed and built adjacent to the old monastery complex on the outskirts of Gengenbach around 1900 for a photographer by Offenburg architect Friedrich Abel.
The wishes of the client can still be seen today in the light-flooded rooms and the beautiful lighting.

Like any older house, this one has a long story to tell.
Here are just a few key facts.
In 1917 my grandfather Emil Bühler bought the villa. Emil was the son of the brewer and brewery owner Casimir Bühler in Gengenbach.
He moved in with wife, two young children and his mother.
The house was big enough, the two women got on well and had a very nice time. Frequently, convivial dance evenings and small parties took place in the villa. The family was an integral part of the cultural life in Gengenbach.

In wartime, the large window of the subject suffered considerable damage, and spread the family in different areas. After the war, the house was rented because of the housing shortage to several parties. Including a dentist with his family and his practice.
Also a French master tailor with her studio moved here.
But again and again, tenants moved in, who did not appreciate the charm, the lifestyle and the generosity of the house: a painter (artist), former submarine sailor in the 2nd. World War, transformed the house into a ship. As a result, over time it licked some corners and water entered the house. As a true sailor, a little bit of water is not bad!

But now the house had passed into my possession; I was glad when I was able to dry the "ship". Over the years, the villa had suffered a lot. It was an intense Auseinadersetzung with the life in such a villa instead. I wanted to give her as much as possible, the old charm and the original color again. (By that time, all the doors, railings, and woodwork had been painted over in a dark dreary brown.) Even the truss was framed in that lifeless hue.)
After two years it was done: the windows were made after the original with the original fittings. A new parquet floor has been relocated. The heating system and heaters have been renewed. The large Art Nouveau window - of which there were only parts left - was lovingly restored. The roof newly covered and fully insulated. The house was listed as a historical monument.

The Villa Today
The villa is now on the edge of a large park in a large garden.
Left flows a brook along the property along the front flows 50 meters away the Kinzig past the house.

The garden is surrounded for the most part by a Thujahecken and go far unreasonable. The bed borders are ... A wine covered gazebo, located on the north side, offers on hot days a pleasant seat, - dining, and resting place, an oasis which is usually slightly blown.

ground floor
In the entrance area of ​​the hallway is still the original functioning tiled stove. It is due to his age that he should only be heated once a week. But then he works an incomparable warmth. The reminiscent of fairytale evenings in the safe family.
By opening a sliding door, the hallway can be connected to the living space. This creates a spacious expanse in the entrance area. The living space is set up for family gatherings or for friends. On cooler evenings, a Swedish stove provides a pleasant, cozy atmosphere.
From the living room leads into the morning light-filled conservatory.

Both from the living room, as well as from the hallway leads to the dining room. Whether for a hearty breakfast or a nice, well-groomed dinner together or the planning of the next excursions, he is wonderfully suitable.

Wunderschöne Villa, sehr zentrale Lage
Die Villa hat uns allen ausreichend Platz und Rückzugsmöglichkeiten geboten. Durch die Lage, ca. 2/3 Minuten fußläufig zum historischen Stadtzentrum und neben einem großen Park (mit Spielplatz und Mini-Zoo), ist die Umgebung sehr leicht zu erkunden. Anja (Ansprechpartnerin vor Ort) hat uns viele Tipps gegeben und ist immer zur Stelle, sollte man Hilfe benötigen - vielen Dank nochmal dafür.
