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 room divided by exposed timber beams into two separate zones – the living area around the stove, and the kitchen and dining area with a long table that can seat up to 10. In the rear part of the building there are two bedrooms and the bathroom complete with a free-standing bathtub overlooking the fields. Above there is a gallery that opens up to the living room. A lovely place to retreat without being cut off from the living room – a perfect play area for children and an extra sleeping space. The large garden is an inviting place to daydream in the hammock, play table tennis or enjoy a barbecue.
