About the villa
You have 500 sqm of living space at your disposal - spread over 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms, 2 studies that has been styled by the Brody House Group's art and furniture team. The fab stained-glass winter garden is ideal for enjoying and/or hosting sumptuous regal dinners.
The serene 3,000 sqm garden was redesigned by Dutch garden designer Baroness Margaretha Voërst van Lynden and is home to many ancient chestnut, pine and yew trees and benefits from an elegant swimming pool. Kick back in the sauna or bob away in the jacuzzi before working up an appetite in the exercise room or pool before tucking into breakfast on the terrace.
Our housekeeper can also prepare and serve lunch and supper throughout your stay on request. If you ask nicely, she may even bust out the historic Herend dinner service.
A private driver service is available on request.
A potted History of the villa
Stroll around the Villa..
It is a heritage listed building and full of historical goodies...
Waltz up to the 'belle etage' via the creaky winding oak stairway and you reach three reception rooms that were originally intended for drinking, dining and smoking. Each reception room retains its original rosewood paneling and ceilings. The central room has an original Zsolnay tiled stove and double doors lead to the loggia and terrace.
The living room on the north side of the house has an open fire and a hidden door to the entrance hall. A fab place to hunker down with a book or your thoughts together with a glass of fruity local red wine or palinka on a crisp winter's afternoon.
This original drawings for the winter garden are held by the Budapest Museum of Applied Arts. Its stained glass windows are among the most beautiful artworks of the Hungarian art nouveau making the winter garden a fab dining and entertainment space. The stained glass was designed by a famous Hungarian artist, Miksa Róth, who did the same for the Hungarian parliament.
Continue up the staircase to the first floor hallway and the large central study with rosewood paneling. The round stained glass windows in the staircase and in the study are from the workshop of Miksa Róth. A large Meidinger secession tiled stove was built into the wall in 1914. The two bedrooms connect to bathrooms of Italian marble with cast iron baths.
The second floor has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a sitting area room and a small iron balcony, commanding a 360-degree view of the city.
Pop downstairs to the lowest level where you will find another kitchen, the laundry room, exercise room, spare toilet, steam bath with changing room and shower, wine cellar and pantry and a machine room. Here is the sixth bedroom with ensuite bathroom right next to a study that can be entered only from the garden.
