Exclusive Bauhaus-style villa just outside Cologne
This detached solidly-built villa was planned by a renowned architectural firm from Cologne in 2007 and completed in 2008. It is located on an exclusive plot of almost 1,600 m2, a one of a kind in the upmarket Cologne suburb of Königsdorf. The property is hidden from view and set back from the street in the second row of houses.
A private driveway leads to the spacious forecourt, which has 3 lit parking spaces and a garage. There is space for at least 4 cars and up to 8 for events or celebrations. The entrance to the front garden (approx. 200 m2) is modern and has its own lighting system. The highlight is an approximately 8,000-litre koi pond with a water filtration system.
At the other end of the house is another garage with direct access to the house. It is currently used as a hobby room and features thermal-insulation glazing throughout. Infrared ceiling heating ensures pleasant temperatures. There is a small shower room right next to the garage. The main part of the house can be reached via a corridor with fitted cupboards.
The spacious entrance has a very exclusive feel thanks to the fact that the staircase is open to the first floor, creating a 5.6-metre-high atrium. The alarm control panel and KNX control system are located right next to the entrance. The office, kitchen, living room and a pantry on the ground floor can be reached via the spacious hallway. The fitted kitchen (approx. 26 m2) has a cooking island and a dining area for 7 persons. A mains gas connection is available. The large, light, L-shaped living room (approx. 60 m2) offers a beautiful view of the spacious garden through the wide window front. The room features high-quality oak parquet flooring by a German manufacturer. A modern wood-burner by Brunner (2014) and the real stone cladding on the niche wall complete the exclusive furnishings.
On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 1 guest toilet. All the rooms have high-quality parquet flooring and fitted wardrobes. While the main feature of the 2 north-facing rooms is direct bathroom access, the 2 south-facing rooms have access to the two balconies. For extensions there is a completed architect’s drawing (including a structural analysis) for an additional 80 m2 on a second floor. The connections have all been prepared under the roof. This floor was planned as an annexe. It offers a protected view of Cologne and was designed to be divided into a bedroom, a walk-in wardrobe and a bathroom.
With its continuously tiled rooms, high-quality fitted wardrobes and underfloor heating, the basement is an impressive fully-fledged living area. In addition to the heating and utility rooms there is also a large sauna room with a spa shower, a guest toilet and a 50 m2 annexe with its own entrance and connections for a kitchen.

The property is located within the Atrium, a new-build area that was developed in the fashionable Cologne suburb of Königsdorf in 2016. The area impresses with its relaxed style of construction, many green areas and effective traffic calming measures, which provide privacy. Only residents enter the area by car, as it can only be accessed via a single road! Königsdorf is right on Aachener Straße, just outside Cologne, near the Weiden district of the city and its shopping centres. Road connections are excellent: the A1 and A4 are just minutes away. Cologne’s central railway station is just 20 minutes away by train, while Cologne/Bonn airport is 40 minutes away by train.
