In a region that is architecturally characterized by four-sided courtyards, brick churches and settlement houses, the small Wilhelminian style Villa Auguste already stands out visually. Here you are a bit secluded in the middle of nature. Lovingly refurbished, high quality and original furnishings, flooded with light and cozy, you can stay here wonderfully even on rainy, cold days.
The house dates back to the Wilhelminian era, many of the original elements were still preserved or were bought again during the renovation in the historical building materials trade. The host family has created their own version of the country house style, and it is by no means dusty and old-fashioned. Beautiful vintage finds such as the large dining table and the old school chairs have been collected and lovingly arranged over many years. At the same time, timeless, high-quality pieces such as the Italian upholstered beds were used to guarantee maximum comfort. The villa receives a very special note from the very harmonious color and material concept, in which English chalk colors skillfully set accents and create a cozy atmosphere.
The villa was originally built by a Berlin industrialist. In the turmoil of the wars and in GDR times, there were changing owners before it became the home of a mother with two daughters. The villa has belonged to a Berlin family since 2016. Since the house was on the railway line at the time of construction and within walking distance of the next train station, the builder may have created a domicile here for his young lover, who listened to the name Auguste. So he could easily drive to her from Berlin at any time.
The Uckermark and the villa were love at first sight for the host family. Her vision was to create a place where everyone can feel comfortable and come together, guests as well as friends and family. At the same time, the villa is a wonderful retreat where you can relax wonderfully.

ArchitectureThe property was renovated very carefully, but fundamentally, and the existing structure was secured. Much emphasis was placed on maintaining high quality and durable materials. Furnished in a more minimalist manner, the focus is on the essentials and the inferior or short-lived items were deliberately avoided. The firewood comes from some rotten trees in the garden that had to be felled.
EnvironmentIn the midst of the monoculture of modern agriculture, the perennial garden, developed with a landscape architect, offers above all a place for many bees. Except for the winter months, something is actually always in bloom. For many city dwellers, a stay in the Uckermark opens up an understanding of life in harmony with nature - gardening, peace and quiet and turning away from uninhibited consumption. Consciously kept a little minimalist, the hosts try: Inside, to whet the appetite for a somewhat reduced, simpler country life, where there is still nothing lacking.
