This unique historic house will appeal to those with romantic souls. It is located right near the Hunger Wall, overlooking the blossoming greenery during the warm seasons and the Hradčany panorama in the winter months. No direct neighbors, yet in a popular area. All amenities are only a few minutes' walk away. Built on the foundations of a Gothic guard tower, this Baroque house close to the Prague Castle boasts a unique genius loci.
The family house currently consists of 2 separate units. On the ground floor, there is an area with access to the garden. There is a possibility to create a 2-bedroom apartment with a separate kitchen, but the layout is variable and so it can also be used as a non-residential unit, for example an office or a gallery. On the 1st floor, there is a maisonette apartment that consists of a living room, a kitchen, a study, a bedroom, a bathroom, an entrance hall, a corridor, and a utility room. There are 2 terraces adjacent to the Hunger Wall accessible from the living room and corridor. There is a bedroom with a bathroom and a generous dressing room in the attic.
Its features include historic doors, casement windows, parquet floors, or a functional tiled stove with an original design by Jan Kutálek, who also created the house sign above the entrance to the house. The personality of the previous owner, the famous director and American Academy of Motion Picture Arts award winner Elmar Klos, is depicted in a sculptural portrait by Cyril Hancl. You can feel the positive energy left behind by a large number of cultural and other luminaries who have stayed here. The ground floor area has been completely reconstructed and is offered in a state of white walls, allowing the new owner to equip and arrange it according to his or her tastes. The house is carefully insulated against moisture. The apartment has a preparation for recuperation and is equipped with a graywater system for toilet flushing and gardening. Underfloor heating is provided by an air-water heat pump. The mezzanine apartment on the first floor was renovated in 2004-2005. The property has its own wastewater treatment plant. Parking is possible in the garage and in the yard. In the garden, there is a shed with a workroom, a smokehouse, a swimming pool (from the 1970s), and a Rococo fountain made of pink marble.
The Great Strahov (Premonstratensian) Garden and surrounding orchards, the Strahov Monastery, or the Petřín lookout tower contribute to the location's impressive atmosphere. It is also easily accessible by car and public transport. Tram or bus stops are a 10-minute walk away, and the nearby funicular provides a quick connection to Malá Strana. Complete urban amenities are within walking distance (a kindergarten and elementary schools, grocery stores, a post office, doctor's offices, restaurants, and sports facilities). There is a bike path right by the house.
