Extraordinary Villa Kampffmeyer, which was home to the KGB during the Potsdam Conference at the end of the Second World War is listed for sale at a staggering €23 million ($26,275,200). This historic estate is situated within a UNESCO World Heritage Site, at the edge of the water marking the historical boundary between Berlin and Potsdam, with direct views of two of Prussia’s famed imperial castles. The original history of the house dates back to1923-24 when it was erected as the first Baroque-inspired private house in the vicinity of Glienicke Bridge across from Babelsberg Castle.
The house draws its inspiration from neo-classical and baroque styles, and is framed by a grand entrance portico on one side and a multi-tiered rounded cupola on the other, adorned by a statue of the Greek God Hermes. Villa Kampffmeyer extends over 15,000 square feet of living and usable space set within 2 acres of waterside landscaped gardens with century-old trees — a fitting vis-à-vis to the park of Babelsberg Castle. The house was featured in Architectural Digest Magazine in April 2015.
