Historical manor house west of Düsseldorf

The project

Green views close to the city – life in the heart of nature. In close cooperation with the Monuments Authority and the Rhineland Regional Council (LVR), historical listed manor houses are carefully restored to the latest standards in new bloom after the building permit has been granted. The flats usually have a terrace on the inside of the square and a private garden on the outside. They also benefit from the large communal garden and usually have additional balconies or loggias on the upper floor. Everything is designed to enjoy the peace and quiet in the greenery away from the streets to the full. Through a generous and impressive gate system you can enter the protected and quiet green and living area of the estate. Shielded by a wooded area, garages, parking spaces and covered bicycle stands are available on the large property. The high quality of the project implementation in combination with a unique architecture ensures maximum security and high investment protection.

 

History of the project

The Vierkanthof, also known as Vierkanter (Austrian), is a type of farm and manor house in Austria and Germany. It can be either a single building of uniform material and height, rectangularly enclosing an inner courtyard, or four separate buildings, often of different heights and materials. The building materials are mostly fired bricks. Originally, these facades were not plastered – as a sign of the wealth of being able to afford the expensive fired bricks. The particularly thick walls of often half a metre – in exceptional cases, however, up to one metre – offer the advantage of the high storage mass. On hot summer days they provide a pleasantly cool climate, in winter they offer excellent thermal insulation.

The situation

The quiet park location without car traffic maintains its living quality through generous garden meadows, surrounded by a high tree population with a wide view of the adjacent fields. 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. The old building fabric is skilfully combined with industrial-looking beams and constructivist steel and glass elements in our properties – with accents of filigree, satin-finished stainless steel in between. Transparent walls and accessible glass ceiling elements as well as atria create an airy feeling of space, while wooden floors in warm natural tones ground up. manor houses with attractive loft architecture and a symbiosis of listed buildings and modern design elements are rare and attractive for buyers and tenants alike. This has been the case in the past and will remain so in the future. For many years, our architectural offices have made an excellent name for themselves, especially in the restoration of historical monuments. With the successful restoration of more than 30 historic manor houses, our architectural offices have proven their efficiency in the use-optimised restoration of historic buildings on several occasions. When dealing with historic buildings, we always take great care to preserve the charisma, originality and identity of the objects and to fill them with new, modern life. We would be happy to arrange a first, impressive viewing appointment for you. Convince yourself in a relaxed atmosphere of the exclusivity and uniqueness of this property and let the impressions on site take effect in peace.

The protection of historical monuments

Enormous tax advantages through listed buildings. The farm is a listed building within the meaning of § 2 (1) and (2) of the Denkmalschutzgesetz NRW. This can result in highly interesting tax advantages for owner-occupiers and especially for capital investors (letting) due to the increased monument AFA, whereby a large part of the purchase price is co-financed by the state over the years from the taxes paid by the owner-occupiers. Please do not hesitate to contact us and let us inform you – in addition to your tax advisor – about this topic. We would be pleased to send you further information material on this subject or to inform you in a personal conversation. Monument properties “pay off”!

 

Profitability

Monument 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 buildings correspondingly high tax advantages according to clear regulations. Expenses for the restoration of listed buildings can be written off and these offer the highest tax advantages. The buyers invest in an exclusive real asset, equipped with the security of a property as documented in the land register as well as comprehensive inflation protection and potential for appreciation. In addition, there are significant tax advantages due to the increased special depreciation for listed buildings. Experience has shown that real estate ownership contributes significantly to the creation of wealth and safeguarding of vested rights. Both owner-occupiers and owners who rent out their property receive high tax savings through income tax depreciation of 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 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, a rising inflation rate and the current discussion about the security of the Euro or the security of financial investments in general additionally lead to high demand and value stability of tangible assets. Enormous tax advantages through listed buildings. The farm buildings are architectural monuments within the meaning of § 2 (1) and (2) of the NRW. This results in highly interesting tax advantages for owner-occupiers as well as for capital investors (letting) due to the increased AFA for the protection of historical monuments, whereby a large part of the purchase price is co-financed by the state over the years. In addition to the tax advantages, you receive low-interest loans from the KFW and often non-repayable financial support from the KFW. Please feel free to contact us in this regard and – in addition to your tax consultant – we will be happy to provide you with information on this topic. We would be happy to send you further material on this subject or explain your advantages in a personal meeting. Monument properties “pay off” in several ways, because as a owner-occupier you receive high subsidies and due to the low supply and the high desirability you as a capital investor usually have even higher rental income than in comparable properties!
