The property is situated right on the Griebnitzsee in the northern part of the Potsdam-Babelsberg district. This area is also known as the Neubabelsberg villa colony on the Griebnitzsee and is one of the most exclusive residential areas in the Berlin/Brandenburg district. Potsdam-Babelsberg is especially known as a renowned media location, and the Babelsberg film studios – numbered among the world\'s most famous film production sites – have long defined the district\'s special character. Set amidst a magnificent lacustrine landscape, Babelsberg has remained one of the most prominent real estate locations in the region since the beginning of the 20th century.
Despite the quiet side streets, many shopping and recreational facilities are still within walking distance. Among the site’s many other plus points, there are a number of schools and doctors in the immediate vicinity. This property also lies just a few minutes away from the beautiful Schlosspark Babelsberg with its lido and countless hiking and biking trails.
By car, it takes around 20 minutes across the Wannsee via the AVUS motorway to reach the Kurfürstendamm in Berlin. And taking the S-Bahn from the nearby "Griebnitzsee"station, a stress-free train journey to the "Friedrichstrasse" station in Berlin Mitte takes about 35 minutes.

Property description

Sited on a small hill, this remarkable villa seems to float majestically above the water. In the midst of an idyllic location, this perfectly proportioned aristocratic mansion with grounds extending to approximately 4,900 m² stands on the Griebnitzsee in one of Potsdam’s prime locations – the Babelsberg villa colony. The eye is drawn almost magically to this property, which is a fine example of the tasteful architectural heritage of a bygone historical period.
As early as 1881, playwright Adolph L`Arronge, the original owner, had already recognised the beauty of this location which was crowned by the construction of this mansion house. Then in 1920, the banker Jakob Goldschmidt acquired the villa – thus giving the property the name by which it is known today – and had it rebuilt by the renowned architect Alfred Breslauer and his brother-in-law Paul Salinger. Due to its exceptional architecture and exquisite form, this house is now a listed building.
Working in close collaboration with the department for the preservation of historical buildings and monuments, the owners restored the house to its former glory in 2011. All its magnificent features were carefully renovated and refurbished and the building was redecorated according to the original colour scheme. The high-quality parquet flooring in the upper-floor rooms – which also feature some magnificent stucco decoration – is particularly impressive. Elsewhere, the original parquet flooring on the ground floor, which dates back to the 1920s, was exposed and refurbished and then refitted in the library and the billiard room. The living room, dining room and library each have an open fireplace, and the one in the library still has its own historic fire surround. Both the foyer and staircase are finished with antique Solnhofener tiles. A sometimes-difficult balancing act between history and modernity has been managed with great success in areas such as the bathroom, which has floor-to-ceiling, double-glazed wooden windows as well as period folding shutters and a free-standing bath. And the modern SieMatic country kitchen with its antique tiling is absolutely stunning.
The villa comes complete with a generous wine cellar, an elegant sauna, its own fitness room and a soundproofed music room, as well as a utility room and a workshop in the basement. Among the exclusive equipment fitted is a fire alarm and a security system, as well as some forward-looking preparations for a DIN-compliant passenger lift which was designed by a specialist company and extends right from the basement up to the attic. A modern bus system has been installed to control the illumination of individual interior and exterior surfaces, to regulate the heating system, and to automate the external window shutters.
The view across the water is breathtaking at any season: The first sailboats take to the water in spring, from the terrace in summer you can see the children enjoying every kind of aquatic adventure, in the autumn you can witness the gradual emergence of glowing autumnal colours along the Griebnitzsee Promenade, and in winter you can stand in your living room in front of a crackling fire and watch the ice floes slowly passing by.
According to the plans, it is possible to construct a boathouse on the waters of the Griebnitzsee to the left-hand side of the property; or alternatively, to rebuild the historic boat house on the bank to the right, which is currently lying derelict. And in addition, the property also has two spacious garden sheds.
