PLÖTZE.N˚17 in the picturesque Old Town of Limburg is a half-timbered house from the 14th century which has been restored with great attention to detail. Now the half-timbered façade which was hidden under gray plaster for decades shines in its full beauty once again. The building has been carefully redeveloped for modern use and comprises a deli and wine shop as well as three apartments. Two of them are rented as holiday homes.

The attic apartment is spread over two floors. The living area with a small kitchen and dining area and a bathroom are located on the lower level. A staircase – with integrated bookcase – leads to the sleeping area under the gable. The apartment is characterized by the exposed timber beams, light-dark contrasts and a classic-contemporary décor. The smaller apartment on the second floor has a different appearance. The rooms (living room with kitchenette and dining area and a bedroom) are furnished in a retro style and decorated in muted tones. A nice detail is the series of historic box-type windows with leaded glass in the dining area.

  1. Ein wunderbares Objekt mitten in der Altstadt von Limburg. Beide Ferienwohnungen sind gemütlich, hervorragend ausgestattet und laden zum Wiederkommen ein. Wir haben das Adventwochenende genossen. Velen Dank dafür, Familie Schuldt aus Potsdam
