It was during the years before the disintegration of the old order, which was superficially characterised by well-tended uniformity: the fourth Olympic Games of the modern era were held in London in 1908, a meteorite exploded above the Siberian taiga and Austria-Hungary annexed Bosnia and Herzegovina. That was exactly the period (1907 to 1910) when the internal medicine specialist Heinrich Quincke had a two-storey villa built for himself in the style of an English country house. He commissioned the famous architect Hermann Muthesius for that purpose.
The latter created a real gem of enduring value for his client: a total living area of 1,739sq m with a breathtaking staircase embellished with Art Nouveau elements derived from Grimms´ fairy tales, with parquet floors enhanced by marquetry as well as decorative plaster moulding in the entrance hall and all of the rooms intended for social functions.

From 2004 to 2007, the villa was elaborately renovated and carefully brought into line with the modern age by means of comprehensive alarm security systems, elevators / lifts, an underground parking facility for approx. 6 vehicles, a private cinema, sauna and exercise room with adjacent fitness area.

THE SPECIAL FEATURES:
Very impressive and spacious entrance hall, intricate parquet floors enhanced with marquetry in large areas, magnificent ceilings with decorative plaster mouldings, numerous Swarovski candelabras, banquet dining room, the manorial drive, picturesque sculptured figures in the garden, passenger elevators / lifts, high-quality built-in kitchen suitable for entertaining on a large scale, an additional built-in kitchen, open fireplaces, floor length windows, luxurious bathrooms, fitness room, climbing room and playroom for children, private cinema, ballroom with bar, cigar room, ladies’ room, study, billiard room, wine cellar, sauna, underground parking facility for 6 passenger vehicles, caretaker’s office with separate entrance, staff room, alarm system, modern technical building systems and much more.

THE LOCATION
Diplomatenviertel, i.e. the Diplomats’ Quarter, is one of Frankfurt’s best and most sought-after residential areas. Wide streets and beautiful villas combine with an abundance of greenery to give this neighbourhood its very special flair. For example, you will find a large number of villas that are protected historical landmarks, mainly in the neoclassical style and usually with luxuriant gardens. It is not without reason that most of the consulate-generals of various countries are based here…
There are very few streetscapes in the immediate vicinity of the Palmengarten botanic garden which radiate a comparable feeling and where the history of a bygone era seems to be omnipresent – and probably even fewer villas with such an exquisite provenance.
