Bauhaus is quite simply exceptional. Designed in 1963 by acclaimed Cologne architects the Schurmann's, it was home to the renowned Czech-born sculptor Gerda Fromel, who while raising her...
family there, also imagined, took inspiration, and created her most celebrated works including 'Moon and Hill', 'Spear', 'Eve' and 'Head'. Acquired by the current owners in 2006 as conscientious custodians, a considerable restoration and renovation programme of works began, to protect, improve, enhance, and preserve the architectural and spiritual provenance of Bauhaus. Bauhaus is truly a one of a kind delight, that to be fully appreciated, must be experienced. Hidden behind the tall old stone walls along Stocking Lane, the property is approached by a sweeping drive surrounded and lined by ancient trees with wild gardens, home to wildlife, that form part of the picturesque countryside backdrop.
