With its red plastered façade, limestone base, slate roof and white-painted shutters, the listed building catches the eye from afar. The villa, which consists of three wings, was built in 1928 in the Art Deco style and is located in the center of the small town of Groitzsch, south of Leipzig. Originally planned as a residential building and doctor’s surgery, it was converted several times and used for a variety of purposes. After many years of vacancy and extensive refurbishment, the building ensemble has now been home to two apartments in the main and north wings as well as a vacation apartment in the southern part of the building since 2016.
Apartment Süd 9 (South 9) comprises a living room with an open-plan kitchen and sofa bed, a bedroom with a double bed and a large shower room. Antique individual pieces and Art Nouveau lamps harmonize with modern furniture and accessories. The shiny green and blue mosaic tiles in the bathroom add a touch of color. The red of the façade is also echoed in the interior: The rungs of the banisters and individual door leaves reference the red plaster. With its sage-green walls and light-colored textiles, the bedroom radiates calm and offers a retreat for relaxing and reading.
The surrounding garden connects the different parts of the building – cobblestone paving alternates with lawn and gravel areas. After excursions into the historic surroundings of the medieval town of Groitzsch, to Leipzig, Zeitz or on to Halle or Dresden, the outdoor area invites you to end the day in peace, for example between the old trees in the garden of Süd 9.
What to do
The medieval town of Groitzsch and its historic surroundings invite you to visit the castle, monasteries and small village churches. The Neuseenland region offers many bathing lakes and well-developed cycle paths. Cities such as Leipzig, Zeitz and Altenburg can be reached in half an hour by car, and Halle and Dresden are also great destinations for excursions.
