Short Overview


Welcome to the riverside village of Gornau, and site of this great property.

Sitting in a desirable elevated position on the edge of the village and only 15 Miles to the historic city of Chemnitz, this property is sure to be a popular one.

The property comprises:
-3 floors
-4 bedrooms
-Balcony overlooking the river and deep unspoiled forests.
-A large room, possibly used many years ago as stables or for livestock, now ideal as a restaurant with boothed seating, or do as you wish with it!

Street Address: Witzschdorferstrasse 92

As you step in the front door you'll notice how spacious the entrance hall is. There is a big bedroom straight ahead with WC. Turn Left and into the huge room.

The huge room has stalls in it. Possibly livestock were kept there, perhaps they were seating stalls. The timber is solid, probably oak. This is a very big room, suitable for a variety of uses, or split into two to make a lounge and diner or similar.

A grand staircase that would be very more at home in a castle takes you up to the 1st floor.

On the 1st floor you'll find a small room and 2 bedrooms as well as a kitchen. On the same floor you'll find a large lounge leading out to the balcony. The balcony is well built and is finished in attractive ornate railings.

From the balcony the views are brilliant. Miles of deep forest huddle around this side of the village, just down the hill is a river, teaming with fish, the mountains around are unspoiled.

On the top floor is another lounge area and another bedroom, bringing the bedroom count to 4.

The building appears solid. We suggest that this property is appropriate for full time living or spiff it up a bit and rent it out as a holiday home, it’s in such great condition that minimal work is required. Expect to take in around 70-80 EUR/night to let the property as a holiday home, 350EUR/week if you rent it on a weekly basis. Long term rental would be ideal.

In summer the area is very popular with tourists.

Imagine sitting on the balcony on the balmy summer evenings with a glass of Saxony Cherry Wine, it’s all possible!

We mentioned Chemnitz earlier in the description. A short 15 drive away is Chemnitz. Chemnitz has a very healthy economy, the city's economy is based on the service sector and manufacturing industry. Chemnitz University of Technology has around 10,000 students. Chemnitz is named after the river Chemnitz, a small tributary of the Zwickau Mulde. The name Chemnitz means "Stony Brooke".

Sporting everything you ever need from a modern city, with a twist of classic design a trip into the city is only 15 Mins away.

Start your tour of Chemnitz with a trip to the Karl Marx statue. This imposing statue is perfect for selfies. The museum of Saxony Industry will take up most of the day. From trains to Trabants, massive wool spinning machines and engines of all shapes and sorts, this is something for inquisitive types.

Go shopping in the market hall or muse around the castle, this really is a city for all.

Want somewhere classy to stay whilst visiting your property? Book into the Hotel Schloss Rabenstein. A castle in itself and within the city boundaries, enjoy top class food, relax with a massage and settle down in a sumptuous 4 poster bed, this is luxury. Breakfasts are a delight in such surroundings, a great start to your new venture in Germany.

This property is freehold as standard, sold direct to you, and to the best of our knowledge, is one of the most sound properties we have ever sold. You're going to love it here!
