Situated in the city’s Blankenese district "Villa Jako” the opulent villa previously owned by renowned fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has recently been listed for sale. As one would expect the property is impressively designed and enjoys a unique location with unobstructed views of the River Elbe.
The villa is set on a hillside plot spanning almost 12,000 square metres in the exclusive Blankenese area of Hamburg. Its impressive façade with columns and the building’s ground plan are inspired by the classical design of a Roman villa. Striking symmetry and grand dimensions are also indicative of this style.
The 433 sq m of interior space is set over two main floors and a lower-ground level. An atrium at the centre of the house has a gallery on the first floor above and opens on to three reception rooms.
The living room spans 80 square meters and stretches the entire length of the property. With its ceilings lavishly decorated in golf leaf and soaring up to six meters high, this room evokes the sense of a stately hall.
Round-arched glass doorways open directly onto the garden and terrace, and make the most of the river views, which cannot be obstructed in any way.
The first-floor gallery also serves as a library. It leads on to three bedrooms, each featuring an en suite bathroom and dressing room. Every room is individual and exclusive in design, culminating in an overall atmosphere of eclectic splendor. Some elements of Karl Lagerfeld’s interior design of the property in Hamburg are preserved to this day.
Engel & Völkers in Hamburg has listed the classical home, for 10million Euros.
