Close to the river Elbe in charming Nienstedten, the finest of Hamburg’s western suburbs, RALF SCHMITZ is developing a corner-plot quintet whose façades echo the aesthetic charm of bygone eras.
With their gently curved mansard roofs, reddish-brown peat-fired brick and white multipane windows, this ensemble of four townhouses and one villa bears unmistakable echoes of local architectural traditions and blends seamlessly with the surrounding villas.
Accessed from Charlotte-Niese-Strasse, the spacious townhouses, which have shared driveways and side entrances, are ideal for families with children, offering bright and airy living spaces including an inviting dining kitchen and a separate parental suite. There are also practical features such as a lower ground floor fitness room, an integral garden-level garage and a further basement storey, all of which helps to keep these carefully planned homes free from the familiar clutter of trainers and sports gear.
The single detached villa, which stands beneath an old lime tree and is accessed from Gerstenbergstrasse, makes a perfect home for the larger family, offering up to five bedrooms, an impressive 420 square metres of usable floor/ living space and the kind of brilliantly thought-out accommodation you rarely see in a Nienstedten new-build. Architecturally, it boasts the same great qualities as the townhouses, while the romantic bay window and adjacent terrace overlook a south-facing garden in which mature trees afford ample shade for al fresco summer brunching.
Once a farming and fishing village, Nienstedten today offers residents all the benefits of truly family-friendly living – a first-class suburban location with good transport links to the city centre, quiet streets, excellent nurseries, and schools within cycling distance. What’s more, there are numerous clubs, a variety of leisure activities and an attractive range of shops all within easy reach.
