The Büdnerhaus in the village of Born on the Darss peninsula of Germany’s Baltic coastline rests on the foundational walls of a house dating back to 1792. The owners had actually planned to restore the original building. But since the latter couldn’t to be saved they built a new house strongly inspired by its predecessor. The result is a regional half-timbered building with a thatched roof, transom windows, a wide entrance hall, handmade terracotta floors and the traditional Darssian doors. But not everything has been borrowed from the past: the house opens onto the garden with a large window front that provides broad views of the Bodden, the kitchens and bathrooms offer modern comforts, there is underfloor heating and there are large fireplaces. And the interior design is – with the exception of several antique pieces – distinctly contemporary. The house consists of two apartments: a 120 sq m apartment for four people on the ground floor and a 90 sq m large attic apartment (with a sauna) for two. The apartments can also be rented together and connected by internal corridors.
What to do
For children the large meadow near the Bodden is ideal. In the village: Minigolf, a climbing forest, bathing spots, fishing facilities, hiking through the forest to the Weststrand beach.
Why we like this house
Spacious apartments with a view of the Bodden, at the edge of a forest yet still centrally located in the village.
This house is great for
Perfect for tall people: the kitchen, wash basins and doors are higher than normal. In the attic apartments, the beds are also extra long.
