The apartment Süd 9 forms part of a heritage listed building complex at the centre of the small town of Groitzsch, just south of Leipzig. The ensemble, with its striking red façade in an Art Deco style, was built in 1928 as a medical practice and connecting residential building. Since then, it has seen a variety of uses and conversions. When it was acquired by its current owners in late 2014, it had stood empty for many years and was almost derelict. It took several years more to renovate each building and bring the former beauty of the ensemble back to light.
Two apartments have been created in the main building and in the north wing. The south wing has been converted into a holiday home with an open-plan living room with a kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom. The interiors feature a harmonious combination of antique pieces, Art Deco-style lamps and fabrics and simple, modern furniture.
What to do
You can explore the historic surroundings of Groitzsch with its castle, monasteries and unique village churches. The surrounding Neuseenland region features several lakes and a network of cycle paths. In 30 minutes you can reach the cities of Leipzig, Zeitz and Altenburg, and you can also go on further trips through the Central German cultural landscape (including the towns of Halle, Dresden).
