This unique baroque property of the Old Manse dates back to 1780. It was completely refurbished and modernised in 1980 and has listed-building status. The property consists of the Old Manse, a timber-framed barn and the former stables. These were converted to 2 apartments in 2000 and can be rented out or used as separate accommodation for guests or large families. The Old Manse was renovated and refurbished by the current owners with much love for detail, true to the style of the period and with high-quality fixtures, fittings, wall-coverings and interiors. The historic flair is present in each room, and it is like stepping back into Goethe's times, without missing the modern living comforts. The rooms are generously-sized and have high ceilings, and it would also be possible to realise contemporary interiors without loosing the historic character of the property. The park behind the Old Manse measures approx. 6000 m² and is very private and idyllic, with old trees, several seating areas and an orchard. On the south side, the grounds are bordered by a stream. Here it is easy to forget the daily hectic and to regain strength for the challenges of a demanding working life. Children can play and roam care-free. The property is very interesting for horse-owners, since there are 8000 m² of additional grazing in approx. 400 metres distance.
The historic Old Manse is located in a small village in the western Taunus hills, near Nastaetten and Bad Schwalbach, and only 35 km from Wiesbaden. The location is ideal for everybody, who loves country living, but has to be within easy reach of the Rhine-Main-region. You are surrounded by beautiful countryside with meadows and forests, and nature lovers or pet owners will feel very much at home. There is no crime to speak of or social conflicts, and the world is still in order here. Families with small children will appreciate the peaceful life. The UNESCO World Heritage Site Middle Rhine Valley is on the doorstep and offers historic wine villages, castles, fortresses and the legendary Loreley. The vicinity of Wiesbaden, Mainz and Frankfurt will suit all those who appreciate the benefits of city life with comprehensive shopping facilities, theatres, museums, cinemas, etc. An excellent road network, a railway connection in 18 km and Frankfurt-International airport in 65 km distance guarantee easy access to all major German cities and destinations all over the world.
