As mentioned, the property backs on to a semi open, walled church yard.
The property has a good sized rear garden and outbuilding as well as extension.
To the rear of the property is your courtyard garden, step out of your attractive gate and you are literally stepping back in time. Many hundreds of years old, the stone walled alley between your house and neighbours house (Of which you both have right of way) leads into the church complex.
The St Johannes-Kirche (St Johns) of Reichenbach sits within a wonderful walled garden. The complex Dates back to the 13th Century. A great fire destroyed the previous church, so the current one was built in 1670. The style is early Baroque with rare murals, of interest is the restored organ, originally built in 1866.
The church and its yard is host to many events through the year. From flute lessons to the choir group, Nursery groups and community groups also use the halls around the church, and of course the church itself.
The location is Reichenbach OL, a wonderful preserved town with population circa 4900. The city of Gorlitz, with its epic surroundings, is a popular location for Holywood movies. Movies made in Gorlitz include:
The Book Thief
The Grand Budapest Hotel
For filmmakers, this specific situation is a true blessing! In recent years, countless national and international film productions have made use of the town's unique architecture, which is particularly suitable to recreate past eras for period films. Thus, Görlitz has earned the nickname “Görliwood”.
In 2017 Görlitz was named European Film Location of the decade after the city had won a Europe-wide online voting contest organised by the European Film Commission.
Gorlitz is one of the few cities in Europe with a centre almost entirely preserved, with little having been changed in the last 100 years or so apart from improvements and renovations, well worth a visit.
One last mention must be made of the town hall, 5 doors up the street, a brand new building, this will come in handy when you need advice and to set up services. A 5 Minute walk down the street takes you to the shops. Here you will find a chemists, optician, kebab shop, post office and more. If you like museums, there is one across the street.
This is a very special property, what better place to put your hard earned cash, this will beat any bank return.
The property is freehold, naturally and exclusive to our sales house.
