The ‚Old Fishermen‘s House‘ was built around 1880 on the island of Werder, within sight of the historic mill. It was meticulously restored and renovated in 2004 in close cooperation with the Office for the Protection of Historical Monuments. Tastefully modernized and flooded with natural light, the house has a living area of approx. 156 m², which includes four rooms, a finished attic and two bathrooms. From the quiet residential street, you enter the fisherman‘s house through detailed frame-and-panel doors that lead to a spacious, open-plan living/dining area with fireplace. Large windows and glass doors on the garden/water side open to a terrace facing south. The modern kitchen is equipped with brand-name appliances and is perfectly integrated into the ambience of this unique area that covers nearly 63 m². Functional steel beams add a stylistic element and, in combination with the special aluminum staircase, create a well-balanced, modern sense of space within the historic walls. The entire ground floor and two front rooms on the lower level of the annex (bathroom and utility room) have underfloor heating. At the rear of this area, four steps lead up to the slightly elevated study with adjoining sun terrace and river view. Towards the front, the main staircase leads through a gallery to the upper floor with two attractive rooms and a sunlit modern bathroom with double washbasin, walk-in shower and bathtub. A staircase in the larger of the two rooms leads to the remodeled attic. Two magnificent terraces offering a view of the landscaped garden, historic mill and Havel River create a romantic vacation atmosphere. The building ensemble is located on a south-facing lot covering approx. 347 m² with a first-line waterfront view. A heated ‚lookout house‘ at the southern end of the property serves as an extra cozy space to relax. Following the transfer of ownership, the seller would like to pay a user fee and remain in the house for an agreed upon period of time. The entire ensemble is ideal for buyers who are looking for tasteful privacy in the unique island environment of Werder.

Location and surroundings of this property
A walk in Werder, whichever direction you take, always leads you to the water. The place name Werder means “land surrounded by water”, which is especially true for the old town island in the middle of the Havel. The island of Werder in the historic old town setting offers a variety of gastronomy and shopping opportunities in a beautiful ambience. Walks on the island are reminiscent of holidays by the sea and make for a natural, relaxed life in Werder. The charming location in the Havel landscape and the beauty of Werder have led to the town now being recognised as a state recreation area. But it’s not just the many excursion and recreation opportunities – the infrastructure is also excellent and offers numerous shops for daily needs, doctors, pharmacies, day-care centres and schools. Werder (Havel) is located approx. 35 km south-west of Berlin and 10 km west of Potsdam, on the B 1 trunk road within the Berlin A 10 motorway ring. The favourable connections for commuters to Berlin and Potsdam by regional and motorway have led to a constant influx of people, so that Werder and its surrounding communities have already grown to approx. 25,000 inhabitants. The city centre of Berlin can be easily reached by regional express train in about 30 minutes.
