Villa Ikarus

Usedom

Villa Ikarus is part of the classic villa architecture on Delbrückstraße. The beach promenade is only 300m away. With its exceptional facade, it is an outstanding example of the Heringsdorf architecture from the turn of the century. This listed collection of architecturally significant villas forms the basis for the Kaiserbäder’s application for UNESCO World Heritage status. The grand staircase with its artistic windows, the stately balconies, and the unusual ceiling height are particularly impressive. In 2023, the villa will undergo complete gutting and a restoration in accordance with preservation guidelines. This will result in the creation of 8 holiday apartments ranging from 75 to 150 square meters. All apartments will meet the highest standards and feature individual wellness facilities. Completion is expected in mid-2024. The listed building depreciation for Villa Ikarus will be approximately 50%.

Facilities

The modern and contemporary interior design is a deliberate contrast to the historic villa. The rooms are characterized by artistic wooden windows and doors, along with intricate parquet flooring. The design takes inspiration from modern Parisian interiors and meets the highest standards.

Features

The high ceilings of approximately 4.20m, combined with the 2.80m tall doors, require a proportional design in the historical context. The floor plans and rooms are intentionally spacious to recreate this sense of grandeur. As a result, the holiday apartments are unusually large, ranging up to 150 square meters, allowing ample space for individual customization. The attic floor, featuring two penthouse apartments, will be completely redesigned.

Living in the most beautiful street of the imperial spas

Delbrückstraße is considered the most beautiful street in Heringsdorf, with a cohesive architectural ensemble of exceptional historic villas. In the late 19th century, this street was home to the most influential Berlin bankers and industrialists in their summer residences. Today, Delbrückstraße is a peaceful residential street, located just a few hundred meters from the town center of Heringsdorf with its shopping options and restaurants. The wide sandy beach is only 300m away. The rear area of the street is perfectly shielded by a slope leading to Goethe Park.

Contemporary living quality in a historical context

During the renovation of the villa, the historical context will provide the design framework, while the living experience will be modern and contemporary. The historic elements of the villa, such as the facade, staircase, and doors, will be emphasized, while the interior, including kitchens and bathrooms, will meet the latest standards. The furnishings are of extremely high quality and include features such as real wood parquet flooring, a fireplace, fully equipped kitchens with Gaggenau appliances, and wellness bathrooms with individual saunas and steam baths from Effegibi. The residential units are highly differentiated and include large apartments with stately terraces facing Delbrückstraße, very private apartments overlooking the rear Goethe Park, as well as newly built penthouse apartments with panoramic views.

Residing like royalty

Heringsdorf is the largest of the three famous imperial spas on Usedom. It is characterized by its extraordinary architecture from the imperial era, with its exceptional villa development. The pier, at 508m, is the longest pier on the German Baltic coast. Usedom is one of the sunniest regions in Germany.
