A green, wide landscape, above it a blue sky streaked with clouds driven by the wind – this is the setting for Haus Friesensteern on Eiderstedt, Schleswig-Holstein. This historic Haubarg farmhouse dating to the 18th century is situated on a terp at the heart of the peninsula. The thatched-roofed property is one of Eiderstedt’s typical farms, which are the landmarks of the region and testimony to the farmers’ prosperity at that time. In Haus Friesensteern, two rooms completely furnished in historic Delft tiles display this one-time wealth. The original, richly decorated alcoves are also quite special. But despite these historic treasures, the ambience here is nothing like that of a museum. This is ensured by the furnishings in a casual-rustic style and the colourful accents. Bright red Panton designer chairs set a counterpoint in the historic tiled room. The colour turquoise, which appears in almost every room, also brings a fresh touch to the old house.
There is enough room for up to eight people on its 250m2 of floor space. In addition to four bedrooms with double beds, there are several common rooms: the alcove room and a living room with a kitchen island, long dining table (made from old doors) and a TV corner. Through large windows you have views of the terrace in front of the house and far out into the surrounding landscape.
The house is surrounded by an 8000m2 plot of land with mature trees, encircled by a drainage ditch. There is plenty of space for playing and romping around. And of course also to relax – for example on the bench with views over the meadows and pastures to the village Tetenbüll.
What to do
St. Peter Ording with its wide sandy beaches, Tetenbüll with its Museum Haus Peters, Lighthouse Westerhever, Multimar Wattforum in Tönning, guided tour of a Frisian sheep cheese dairy, visit of the historic churches, excursions to Friedrichsstadt, Husum, Sylt.

Angelika Stark and Gerrit Siegfriedsen are a designer couple with a great passion for modernising old houses. In their projects, they combine their own taste with the trends of the time. In doing so, they draw on their manual skills and their experience in the fields of graphic design and styling for photo shootings and film productions. Having lived in Hamburg for many years, the passionate water sports enthusiasts moved back to their homeland. On the Eiderstedt peninsula, the couple not only converted the typical farmhouse Friesensteern along with the old schoolhouse into holiday homes, but also turned an old dairy farm near St. Peter-Ording into a family residence for themselves and their two children.
