Surrounded by old fruit trees on a large estate in the Uckermark countryside, it seems almost as if this house has been forgotten in time. The 200-year-old farmhouse with a field stone base, stable and barn is one of the oldest buildings in the village of Sternhagen. A typical Brandenburg farmhouse, it has been renovated in keeping with its traditionally simple and austere character. Many original features, such as the old windows and doors, have been preserved. The roof is has been laid with historical beavertail tiles.
Inside, however, the original narrowness is a distant memory: Bright, interconnected, double-height spaces create a spacious, airy feel. The centerpiece is the large open-plan space for living, eating and cooking, with a traditional stove and sleeping loft. In the rear part of the building there are two bedrooms and the bathroom complete with a free-standing bathtub overlooking the fields.
