The current owner started to carefully renovate and refurbish the house in 2015, which was recently completed having taken into account its original concept and all historic preservation requirements. Many features, such as the approximately 550 year old beams along the ceiling or the partially existing floorboards on the upper floor, which from below can also be seen as a ceiling, have been preserved and carefully refurbished. A special feature of this property is the quiet location right at the end of a small alleyway, with a publicly shared common area outside where tenants can make use of the available benches and tables to relax.
You enter the ground floor through a refurbished historic entrance called „Trense“, famous for its extra high ceilings. In the back part on the left side of the former fireplace, is where the guest toilet is located. On the left is a cozy living room. The fitted kitchen is in the so called „Dornse“ and to the right is the comfortable dining room with a great view through the alley right to the canal “Obertrave”.
Via a carefully restored staircase which is hundreds of years old, you reach the upper floor, where you should mind your head at all times since the height of the ceiling is lower in some parts than today’s norm. On the firsts floor you will find a modern bathroom with a full bath tub, spacious shower, double sink and underfloor heating. Passing a small inbuilt cupboard you reach the bedroom, from where you can also reach a small attic via a ladder which can be used as an emergency sleeping space or extra storage space. The extraordinary natural lighting throughout the alleyway house is another special feature, since it has lots of small windows everywhere and is optimally aligned to the south with plenty of light axes throughout.
Across the alley there is the shed which belongs to this holiday home as well. This is where you can find 2 bikes, one for women and one for men, with which you are welcome to discover Lübeck´s old town. Also the modern washing machine and tumble dryer can be found in the shed.
Of course you can drive right up to the house to unload your car, however, you will have to subsequently park your car in the public parking area in Possehlstraße or in one of the car parks, which are all within walking distance.
