Savills International have recently launched the marketing for a trophy property in Germany, close to Berlin.

Villa Kampffmeyer stands as one of the most important private residences in Germany. The four-bedroom Baroque-inspired villa in Potsdam was built in the 1920s for a family of a flour tycoon.

It’s on the market for €28m ($41.2 million).

It is situated within a UNESCO World Heritage Site, at the edge of the water marking the historical boundary between Berlin and Potsdam.

It has views of two of Prussia's famed imperial castles.

Villa Kampffmeyer was erected as the first Baroque inspired private house in the vicinity of Glienicke Bridge across from Babelsberg Castle, which served as summer residence of Emperor William I. 

The house draws its inspiration from neo-classical and baroque styles, and is framed by a grand entrance portico on one side and a multitiered rounded cupola on the other, adorned by a statue of the Greek God Hermes.

Villa Kampffmeyer extends over 15,000 square feet of living and usable space set within two acres of waterside landscaped gardens with century-old trees — a fitting vis-à-vis to the park of Babelsberg Castle.

It was temporarily used during the Potsdam Conference in 1945, and since German reunification has played host to international dignitaries and royalty.

The house was featured in Architectural Digest Magazine in April 2015.

the entrance is adorned by Three Graces and Mercury sculptures, the Greek mythological patron of commerce. The sculptures were created by Ernst Vogel, who's distinguished himself for his work on the Reichstag, the seat of parliament in Berlin.

West Berlin is less than a 25 minute drive from Villa Kampffmeyer.
