Every room at Uckermark Villa is a delight: from the forest green splashes in the master bedroom and bright wallpaper and vintage leather armchairs in the living room, to the intricately tiled floors in the bathroom and deep blue kitchen with its standalone cooking island. Owners Daniela and Martin fell in love with the Uckermark, in Brandenburg’s north, a place famous for its lakes and unspoilt landscapes, after visiting friends. On the way home, they discussed buying a place in the area that they could transform into a warm, welcoming space where others could visit and switch off surrounded by stylish interiors and creature comforts.
When they found this villa they saw tons of potential (through their daughters said they had a lot of imagination...), and after four years of remodelling, Uckermark Villa (aka, Ville Auguste) was ready. The house had originally been built by a Berlin businessman as a place he could easily reach by train where he could enjoy the countryside. During the process of renovation, Daniela and Martin began daydreaming, imagining that perhaps this businessman built it as a residence for his young mistress, who they nicknamed Auguste. The elegant playfulness of the owners is apparent throughout the property, and whether you decide to visit with your mistress(!) - or partner - or with friends and family, you’ll struggle to not love it here.
Introducing Martin and Daniela!
“We really like old houses, particularly from the beginning of the 20th century. We had really fallen in love with the Uckermark in 2015 after visiting some of our friends, and we were just exploring our options when the villa become available for purchase.”
“We wanted to create a stylish place where friends and family could come together to sit around a large table to enjoy meals, laughter and stories; I think we’ve done that!”
Martin and Daniela’s insider tips
Uckermark Villa is located in the northern Uckermark region of Brandenburg.
You can easily drive, and it takes around 1h 15 from central Berlin.
Arriving by public transport is possible, but perhaps note that buses only run during the week and not after 5/6pm. Catch the train to Templin Stadt from Oranienburg, from where you need to get the 502 bus towards Prenzlau. Get off at Linderhagen, and from here it’s a 10-minute walk.
