The so called "Blue Land" of Bavaria was already a very special spot over more than a hundred years ago. Here, between Kochel and Murnau, infront of the impressive backdrop of the Alps, nature seems to glow even more and the blue colour of the lakes is even more intense. This impressive experience of nature was one of the reasons why the painters of the so called "Blaue Reiter" settled here at the beginning of the 20th century. They founded the expressionism between 1908 and 1914.
Whether Gabriele Münter, Franz Marc or August Macke visited the country house at Raut 30 in Schlehdorf during this period? The stately building can no longer tell us. It could well be, however, because the house was built on the shores of Lake Kochel as early as 1898. According to the plans of the Prussian architect Fritz Klingholz, a stately building in the style of historicism was constructed on a sunny plot of land.
The first owner was a high-ranking military officer of the Prussian Empire. Later, the imposing house was used by a businesswoman as a summer villa. The story goes that the fine ladies she brought from Frankfurt for her summer retreat, and of course she herself, were a big topic of conversation amongst the people at the lake. Before the current owners acquired the property, the country house was a conference hotel for a long time.
A gem rediscovered
With its illustrious residents and various uses, the building's appearance changed over the years. It had lost much of its former splendour - not least due to alterations. Between 2005 and 2007, the current owners, with the help of expert architects, preservationists and craftsmen, as well as a great deal of attention to detail, uncovered the old beauty of the villa.
It was a stroke of luck to come across original decor and parts of the original interior again and again - valuable clues for the restoration work. Stucco was uncovered and completed or, like the case windows, doors and wall panelling, faithfully reproduced from the original. Precious wooden floors and elegant tiled stoves underline the stylish ambience on the ground floor and upper floor. From the light switch to the door fittings, many details were carefully reconstructed at great expense. Today, the country house presents itself as an inviting home that combines an exquisite, historic ambience with state-of-the-art building services and one of the most beautiful natural panoramas in the area.
Nature as far as the eye can see
Wherever you let your gaze wander, you will be delighted by your new home in every season. The more than 16,400 m² large property directly next to a nature reserve spoils the eye with lush nature and real space. This is where you first realize what an unobstructed view really means. The view touches your private bathing and landing pier and the glittering water of the lake, wanders over your "local mountains", goes back to your own herb garden and fruit trees.
On your own playground you can watch your children play. Several terraces provide sunny spots. On the tennis court, which is also part of your property, you will surely have many tournaments with your friends and business partners. And with so much land of your own and the prospect of further, leasable additional areas, even the dream of owning your own horses in the direct neighbourhood could become reality. The idyllic location, spoiled by nature, and the high recreational value of the property are hard to beat. Add to this the exclusive country house: your home.
