Kleiner Hof Lanke




Up to 9



Three apartments packed full of charm in a red-brick farmhouse with a sprawling garden, found at the heart of one of Brandenburg’s stunning nature reserves just a stone’s from a crystal-clear lake


We’d intended to visit Heidi, Kleiner Hof Lanke’s creator, for a quick coffee, but ended up staying for hours, embraced by a deep warmth as she shared her love of the area, the expansive nature that begins on the doorstep, and the property that she has - stone by stone - transformed into a home filled with warmth. It’s not just us who feel inspired and joyous at Kleiner Hof Lanke - no less than three couples have gotten engaged in the oh-so-romantic Garden Apartment.

If you’re a Brandenburg lake aficionado, you may even have driven past the house on your way out of Berlin to Leipnitzsee, which is exactly how Heidi found it, passing by one summer’s afternoon. She found it in ruins, but there was something about it that compelled her to buy it, and we are so happy she did.

As an interior designer who transformed sprawling loft spaces for New Yorkers in the early 2000s, Heidi has an exceptional eye for creating unique spaces. Over 10 years, she has put love, sweat and tears into transforming the former farmhouse into a restorative escape. The three apartments are a beautiful mismatch of objects. The Large Apartment, for instance, has a gorgeous, original yellow Kachelofen and dotted through the same room is an 80s record player, a bold metallic lamp and modern art prints. Whichever apartment you opt for, you’ll feel completely at home - we cannot wait to go back.
