Nauener Vorstadt is one of the most sought-after locations for people looking for a high living standard in Potsdam. This very attractive residential area was developed on the former 18th-century vineyards between Pfingstberg and the Heiliger See. The streets around Große Weinmeisterstrasse and Kleine Weinmeisterstrasse are still reminiscent of the former vineyards today. In the 19th and the first half of the 20th century, freestanding, grand mansions and apartment buildings were built from the town centre outwards, mainly for officers and senior civil servants. This created a closed townscape featuring high-quality architectural designs, framed by spacious parks including Pfingstberg with Belvedere Castle and especially New Garden on the Jungfernsee with Cecilienhof Castle and the Marble Palace on the Heiliger See.

This structure still characterises the district today. This is especially true in Höhenstrasse, which is laid out in the form of a broad avenue and designed as a cul-de-sac, where prestigious 1920s villas and increasingly sophisticated modern villas can be found on large grounds throughout that promise potential buyers dignified and quiet living in a countryside atmosphere.

Höhenstrasse is at most 10 minutes\' walking distance from New Garden, Pfingstberg with Belvedere Castle, Cecilienhof Castle and the two lakes. At the same distance and close to each on Mirbachwäldchen lies the cultural centre of Nauen suburb with the Fontane Archive (University of Potsdam), the Brandenburg Literature Office, the Leistikowstrasse memorial site and community centre and the Lepsiushaus house museum, where events are regularly held.

The infrastructure is good to very good, with the Number 603 bus route to Platz der Einheit in the city centre starting 350 metres away. The city centre can be reached in 10 minutes by bike. A tram stop can be found on Puschkinallee. The Volksparkcenter shopping centre featuring REWE, DM, Bio-Company an MBS outlets and a Jet filling station with a car wash, MTU and soon to be Aldi market is located about 1 km away on one of the two access roads to and from the city centre on the route to Spandau (B2, Nedlitzer Street). The Leonardo da Vinci comprehensive school, Große Weinmeisterstrasse protestant daycare centre and primary school, Königskinder daycare centre in Höhenstrasse, Froebel Jungfernsee daycare centre and Rote Kaserne Ost primary school are all located nearby.

The Am Pfingstberg and Laubenpieper restaurants and Meierei brewery restaurant with its beer garden on the shores of the Jungfernsee and the Weißen Flotte wharf and water taxis are some 500 metres away. All that is missing is the reopening of Cecilienhof Castle as a hotel, restaurant and café.

Motorway junction to the A 115 between Berliner Ring and Wannsee via Nuthestraße about 2 km away as a multi-lane motorway slip road. From there, it is about 30 minutes to Kurfürstendamm and Tegel Airport and some 45 minutes to Schönefeld Airport or Berlin Brandenburg Airport. Once opened, the railway links from Potsdam central station will be improved again.

Property description

With its harmonious, classical 1920s country house style architecture belying a variety of uses, houses like this one are very rare on the Potsdam property market:

• Classical main apartment, with prestigious piano nobile on the mezzanine floor and sleeping quarters on the top floor, which can also be used separately as two apartments without any additional renovation
• Two very attractive smaller apartments on the attic floor with a studio window affording views of the lake and a separate annex (former kitchen and staff annex)
• Fully commercially usable office unit in the souterrain with a private entrance and access to the courtyard
• Heated double garage in the house, another garage for two cars, bicycles, garden furniture and tools, etc. in the courtyard.

Thanks to its generous proportions (landed area some 2.868 m²), this southeast-facing property with its park-like garden and garden shed, patio and boules green is perfectly suited for private use. With its three or four separately accessible and billable residential units (total living space approx. 461 m²), approx. 156 m² fully commercial office unit, flexibly usable and spacious souterrain, featuring a large, heated, multi-purpose, approx. 19 m² workshop, boiler room, storage rooms, lift room, two garages and a courtyard, this house offers real dimensions and is perfect for use as a residential/office building or multi-generational house, possibly with domestic staff, but also for partial rental. Following extensive refurbishment and conversion in 1995/96, this house features a continuous second staircase with integrated wheelchair-accessible lift (8 persons, 630 kg), a centrally controlled electric roller shutter system and triple-locked doors, offering a high level of comfort and convenience, excellent security and sustainability for the future.

In 1928/29, the house was built by the then extremely busy and today still renowned architectural office of Otto von Estorff and Gerhard Winkler on behalf of Erich Graf von Schwerin and was immediately included in a publication dedicated to these architects in the "Neue Werkkunst" series on contemporary architecture. This architectural office characterised architectural history in Potsdam in the era and was responsible for designing 56 buildings, most of which are listed as historical monuments today, although this house is not. The house features typical elements from the works of Estorff/Winkler, including bright plasterwork, clinker plinths, green-hinged shutters and plain tile roof cladding. A very special feature of the house is its steep roof with high ridge, which gives it a dynamic touch. Many historical design elements, such as the double box windows, door frames and door leaves with original fittings, as well as floors and built-in wardrobes have been completely refurbished. The house can be accessed without steps through the spacious courtyard with its electronically operated gate. The total area of this house, including traffic areas, usable space (e.g. boiler room) and garages, is approximately 843 m².

Main apartment on the ground floor (approx. 216 m²):

Framed with ceramic tiles with a salamander motif, the entrance to the main apartment on the ground floor is accessed via a porch and wide entrance featuring original black & white tiles to the representative living and functional rooms:

• Living room with adjoining sunroom and new tunnel fireplace
to the dining/living room; from there, access to the kitchen leading to the second staircase
• Study, adjoining cloakroom hallway, toilet, newly furnished bathroom (with toilet and vanity connections) and access to the souterrain office via a spiral staircase
• Access to the top floor via a beautiful dog-leg stair with 90-degree half-landing.

Once removed, the parquet floors originally laid in 1995/96 were re-stripped and oiled, and the windows, doors, walls and ceilings were renovated and freshly painted.

A large garden terrace on the ground floor connects the main living rooms, sunroom and kitchen. This offers real value in summer when, besides acting as a deterrent to burglars, the electronic roller shutter system delivers shade when needed and by doing so guarantees pleasant room temperatures. Another terrace on the south side of the sunroom and two corresponding balconies upstairs offer delightful fresh air with a high level of privacy and beautiful views of the garden towards the Jungfernsee.

Top floor (approx. 134 m²):

As planned when the house was originally built, the top floor can be used as sleeping quarters at piano nobile level. A partition wall installed later in the hallway on the top floor directly in front of the railing fitted with lockable door ensures better acoustic separation of the hallways on the GF and TF today and dispenses with the need for a child safety system in the connecting stairwell. This partition means that the top floor can also easily be used as a light and characterful separate apartment. It can be accessed separately via the second staircase and features:

• Two bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom
• A bedroom/guest room/nursery/study with separate toilet, bath and washing machine connection
• A living room with historical built-in furniture and a new, glass-fronted fireplace and balcony affording a wonderful view of the garden and the Jungfernsee
• A large and bright approx. 31.95 m² kitchen with all the connections needed for installing a kitchenette; this room can also be used as a bedsit apartment for the piano nobile.

The top floor has been completely renovated.

Attic floor (approx. 59 m²):

This very attractive apartment has just been cleared and as a result is yet to be renovated. It would be ideal for use as separate accommodation for family members, domestic staff or even for rental and features:

• A hallway
• A large living/dining area with a fitted kitchen and a studio window with venetian blinds with a magnificent view across the garden towards the Jungfernsee
• A bedroom and
• A shower cubicle


Fully commercially usable office unit with approx. 156 m² of space (planning permission from 1994, no longer possible today in the purely residential area in Development Plan No. 60) featuring four offices, L/G toilet, fully equipped office kitchen, archive room, IT/TC ducts in the floor, high-quality sliding glass doors in 2 offices backed with shelves, sturdy felt floor, insulated glass windows and best-in-class insulation against cold and heat (Foamglas) for a pleasant room climate. The entrance on the ground floor can be reached directly via a spiral staircase from one of the offices. Full separation from the GF is also possible. The office is also connected to the second staircase. The rooms are all in a very good condition.

Historical annex (approx. 52 m²):

This apartment is still rented out until the 15th of December 2019.

The apartment features:

• Two rooms
• A shower cubicle, toilet and washing machine connection
• A small kitchen
• Manually operated shutters

This apartment looks like a separate cottage attached to the villa with surrounding outside windows, which makes it very attractive. It extends to the street and is accessed via a staircase from the courtyard. It is not connected to the villa, but the front door is located right next to one of the entrances to the second staircase in the villa. As with the apartment on the TF, relatives or domestic staff can be accommodated here perfectly, or it can be offered for rental.

Once the tenant has moved out, it will remain in an unrenovated condition.


The terraced garden featuring approx. 1,800 m² of space was completely redesigned in 1995/96 and has since developed into a magnificent park-like garden. It offers three different sized lawns, two of which are flat thus making them particularly suitable as recreational areas. The third, with its terrain-hugging slope and its old and heavily laden walnut tree, forms the central hub of the garden.

With its magnificent flowerbed, variety of other beds featuring azaleas, a large rhododendron bush, network of paths, beautiful front garden and, last but not least, garden shed with its large, sunny seating area, the garden offers an excellent and intimate atmosphere for relaxation and recreation. A boules green invites you to play under the conifers. Heavily fruit-bearing trees, a second walnut tree, ornamental trees and shrubs (hawthorn, ornamental apple, pear, etc.) and other bushes, shrubs and trees complete the picture. A stock of ancient trees surround the villa and garden. The garden is a green oasis, especially in the summer. With its concrete boxes enclosed in greenery and fitted with wooden doors, the garden also offers additional storage space. One of the boxes contains replacement materials for home and garden, while the second is empty and can be used for garden furniture etc. After the well dried up, the main irrigation system is being fed with water from the mains supply.
