This eye-catching barn, today converted, at the beginning of a Park Sanssouci walk , 2mn from Potsdam center and within a reasonable distance from Berlin, is a Love affair for those searching for peace, nature, culture and architecture.
Built probably by the famous architect Persius, the barn has been renovated in a respect for simplicity, natural materials and above all a feeling for home, comfort ,and individuality. A cheerful mixture of colors for carpets, rugs , white linen and wool blankets, dark wooden floors and plain furniture in the attic, Moroccan tiles for the kitchen work table, Moroccan brass taps in bathrooms and terracotta floors in bedrooms provides you an faraway atmosphere . The large beds in all four small rooms create an inviting nestlike space to sleep in !
In the spacious attic you have three areas.
You might choose one, seating next to the windows with a view offering the prospect of long hours of idle contemplation of the park and its changing moods. It is also the central place for lounging on one of the four daybeds where oriental cushions are essential for propping you up as you enjoy long afternoons of coffee and conversation or long evenings in front of a movie. The red of the beautiful rugs laid on large dark brown floorboards make the interior quite warm and comfortable. The white linen curtains loosely hanging from beams are used to make the space more intimate or to surprise you by a big screen behind.
The second one, the spare modern area where the white generously handmade table, matching the color of the beams with the honey brown wood of the modern chairs illustrates a sophisticated simplicity of the space which can be used as a SEMINAR ROOM or DINING ROOM. Lighting is provided either by candles to make a romantic dinner or a discrete lamp fixed on the beam.
The third area of the attic offers you a convivial space where you can take breakfast, have a glass of wine or cook all together on a beautiful Moroccan tiled kitchen island table. The kitchen has the necessary household appliances and tableware.
By nice weather, you might use the private enclosed informal courtyard sheltered by fruit trees and flowers providing a profusion of scents for a picturesque summer outdoor eating area .
The second one also closed but more formal with its little fountain offers you different enchanting seating places for reading or encouraging your inspiration before taking a walk directly in the Park Sanssouci to visit one of many castles , an excursion in the historical city, a swimming in one of many lakes or a daily trip to Berlin!
