Unique property in the heart of the Hunsrück area
About 1900 the water-tower was built near the idyllic village of Dhronecken
as a water reservoir and pumping station for the German Royal railway company.
The village itself is located in the Hunsrück region in Rhineland-Palatinate,
western Germany, at a distance of one hour by car from the French border and
half an hour from Trier, the oldest city in Germany. The whole property covers
about 30.000 square metres. A small creek called "Kleine Dhron" runs through
The property further provides a saloon with a tiled stove, a well and a fish pond, a stage, 2500 square metres of pasture, a horse stable with three boxes, a carport and a water provision of its own. It is connected to the local waste water system and the electric power supply.
In 1938 a small house was built next to the tower, used for the water pumps. Since 1978 the four-storeyed tower and the house have been renovated and modernized on a regular basis. Today the tower's ground floor is used as a bar in Western style. The tower is not used for living, but could easily be done up for that purpose. The house, on the other hand, contains a bedroom, a living room with a tiled stove, a small bathroom with shower and a kitchenette. Living space in the two-storeyed house comes up to 115 square metres on the ground and first floor, and additionally there are another 64 square metres under the roof. This room has its own entrance and a balcony. Floors are covered by parquet, tiles or carpets.
Heating is provided by a central gas heating system. A tiled stove is a pleasant further means of heating the living room and the bedroom.
The tower and the house are furnished, mainly with antiques from the region.
