TRAVEL TUESDAY – Historic House on Prague’s Kampa Island
This Travel Tuesday, explore affiliate listing from Prague, Czech Republic.
The extraordinary location of this remarkable house on Prague’s Kampa Island is enhanced by a unique view of Charles Bridge from its upper floors. The building is in excellent condition and is situated in the Malá Strana in an intimate garden with an area of 326 sqm behind a high wall next to the Grand Priory Palace and the nearby French Embassy. The local legendary Lennon Wall, like one of the most famous hits from the Beatles, creates a first impression for everyone who enters the garden through the monumental oak gate. Given its location, internal layout and overall potential in an attractive tourist area, it can also be used for business or as a prestigious company seat. The atmosphere of this 200-year-old house built on foundations from the 15th-16th century is enhanced by the original cellar, used today as a cosy wine cellar with an area of 20 sqm. The garden is literally steeped in history, and to this day the metre-wide stone wall bears witness to old tales of the Grand Priory estate, the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and ordinary residents of the Lesser Town.
The sensitive complete reconstruction carried out in 2005-2009 conforms to the exceptional location and the overall character of the building. It is immediately apparent that the private owner commissioned his reconstruction plans and personally supervised the work with great demands on functionality and comfort. The reconstruction work performed without the slightest compromise included everything that a listed building in a location under UNESCO supervision requires, from ensuring structural stability to the smallest construction detail. The fact that no defects have appeared in recent years during the use of the house attests to the high quality of its reconstruction. The house is being offered with the custom-designed furniture and all premium amenities, air conditioning, a fireplace, an electronic security system, a camera system and a safe.
