PROJECT STATUS: Only a few units still available.

Top residential address. Estate west of Cologne.

The project

In a picturesque rural idyll and around 15 or 20 minutes by car from the western German metropolises of Cologne and Düsseldorf, this stately manor house is surrounded by greenery. The motorway exit on the A 61 is just 2 minutes away from the estate – without disturbing the peaceful and rural idyll.

If you love the tranquillity and idyll of a Rhenish estate, but at the same time don’t want to miss out on the big city atmosphere, this location and its monuments with a high recreational value are the perfect choice.

In close consultation with the monument authorities and the Rhineland Regional Council (LVR), historic listed estates are carefully restored to the latest standards and given a new lease of life once planning permission has been granted.

Most of the flats have a terrace on the inside of the square and most of them have their own garden on the outside and also benefit from the large communal garden, often with mature trees. Everything is designed to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

A spacious and impressive gateway leads to the sheltered and peaceful green and living area of the estate. Shielded by trees, the large property offers garage parking spaces, outdoor parking spaces and covered bicycle parking areas. The high quality of the project realisation in combination with unique architecture ensures maximum security and high investment protection.

The location

The tranquil rural idyll is enhanced by spacious garden meadows surrounded by tall trees with sweeping views of the neighbouring fields. It is a special comfort for every resident to enjoy this peace and tranquillity from their own terrace.

The ambience

The perfect synergy of historical roots and modern design language makes successful architecture worth living in.
In our properties, the old building fabric is skilfully combined with industrial-looking girders and constructivist steel and glass elements – with accents of filigree, satin-finished stainless steel in between. Manor houses with often attractive loft architecture and a symbiosis of listed substance and modern design elements are rare and attractive to buyers and tenants alike. This has been the case in the past and will remain so in the future.

The architectural offices of our properties have made an excellent name for themselves over many years, particularly in the restoration of listed buildings. With the successful restoration of over 50 historic manor houses, the architectural firms have proven their efficiency in the use-optimised restoration of historic buildings on several occasions. When dealing with listed buildings, great care is always taken to preserve their charisma, originality and identity and to fill them with new, modern life.

We would be happy to arrange an initial, impressive viewing appointment for you. Convince yourself of the exclusivity and uniqueness of this property in a relaxed atmosphere and let the impressions on site take effect in peace and quiet.

Monument protection

High tax benefits from listed properties. The courtyard complex is a listed building within the meaning of Section 2 (1) and (2) of the NRW Monument Protection Act. This can result in extremely interesting tax advantages for owner-occupiers and, above all, for investors (letting) through the increased monument AFA, whereby a large part of the purchase price is co-financed by the state from the taxes you have paid over the years.

Please do not hesitate to contact us and let us – in addition to your tax advisor – inform you about this topic. We will be happy to provide you with further information material on this subject or inform you in a personal meeting.

Listed properties “pay off”!


Listed properties, high profit due to high additional tax depreciation.

The state can only partially fulfil its task of preserving cultural assets and therefore offers owners of listed properties correspondingly high tax benefits in accordance with clear regulations. Expenditure on the refurbishment of listed buildings can be written off and these offer the highest tax benefits.

Buyers invest in an exclusive tangible asset with the security of a property securitised in the land register as well as comprehensive protection against inflation and potential for appreciation.

In addition, there are significant tax benefits due to the increased special depreciation allowances for listed buildings. Experience shows that property ownership makes a significant contribution to wealth creation and security of tenure.

Both owner-occupiers and owners who rent out their property receive high tax savings through income tax depreciation on listed buildings in accordance with §40 DSchG in conjunction with §7i and 10f EstG.

The construction costs invested in each property in question can be claimed as income-related expenses or special expenses in the income tax return over a period of 10 or 12 years, thus significantly reducing the overall costs.

The historically low level of interest rates, rising inflation rates and the current debate about the security of the euro and the security of financial investments in general are also leading to high demand for and stability in the value of tangible assets.

In addition to the tax benefits, you also receive low-interest loans from the KFW and often a non-repayable financial subsidy from the KFW.

Please do not hesitate to contact us and let us – in addition to your tax advisor – inform you about this topic. We will be happy to send you further material on this subject or explain the benefits to you in a personal meeting.

Listed properties “pay off” in several ways, because as an owner-occupier you receive high subsidies and, due to the low supply and high desirability, as an investor you generally have even higher rental income than in comparable properties!

The size of the flats

Extremely attractive residential units are designed as separate manor houses with their own entrance and garden area and are mostly between approx. 60 – 150 square metres in size. The planning and size of the units and the corresponding floor plans will be available in April/May 2021.

According to the current planning status, the sizes are as follows

60 – 80 sqm
80 – 100 sqm
100 – 120 sqm
over 120 square metres

These manor houses usually have an internal terrace area and a spacious external garden area. If flats are built in the manor house, the ground floor units will have a separate garden area for their own use. In addition, the remaining communal grounds usually offer enchanting parkland or gardens.

The rents

Experience has shown that rents for listed manor houses are significantly higher than the average rents achieved in the neighbourhood. This is due to the quality of the construction work and the exceptional architecture of the loft flats.

The quality

The high quality of the project realisation combined with unique architecture ensures maximum security and high investment protection thanks to the experience of a team of experts in monument conservation.

Some of the pictures and illustrations shown here show projects that have already been realised and are comparable to this property in terms of planning and quality.

However, it should be noted that the final planning has not yet been agreed with the monument preservation authorities and the images shown are therefore not legally binding.
