About Sebastian Graubner and Lucie Moormann

Lucie and Sebastian form a Dutch - German married couple, with ancestry in the Vogtland and a daughter, Stella, from the Black Forest. Lucie and Sebastian are self-employed: they earn a living as dance and yoga teacher and as manager. Besides that, they engage in volunteer work very often.

Sebastian Graubner and Lucie Moormann purchased this chateau / country house in 2010

Why Sebastian Graubner and Lucie Moormann chose Tirpersdorf

“We already fell in love with this property when it still belonged to friends of ours. The calmness, peace, space, beauty of the landscape and the abundance of relaxation opportunities are simply amazing. If possible, one day it will be our retirement domicile.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

“What attracts us every time again is the absolute remote location, the feeling to be completely free and independent. With its own water well, wood heating, fruit trees and a large piece of land, this residence has the potential to be self-sustaining. But of course it also provides all comfort, f. e. the wall heating with just the push on a button and the hot water 'out of the wall'.

Despite the remoteness, however, you will find yourself in the middle of a cultural landscape. Culture, relaxation and shops: everything is near. From the residence, the Vogtlandish Switzerland opens up while riding your bike over a former railway embankment, which now is a bicycle track.”

Gemütliches Haus in idyllischer Alleinlage

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben uns in dem liebevoll eingerichteten Haus sofort wohl gefühlt. Besonders toll ist der Essbereich mit Panoramablick in den Garten. Direkt vor dem Haus führt ein herrlicher Radweg entlang, der zur Erkundung des Vogtlandes auf 2 Rädern einlädt.

Erholsames Abschalten

  • 4 of 5

Sehr angenehme Umgebung mnit großem Garten. Unserer Sohn fand das Trampolin Spitze!

Das Haus war ordentlich und sauber und hatte eine sehr gute Ausstattung. Die Couchecke fanden wir jedoch etwas klein, das wurde durch den Anbau wett gemacht, der einen wunderschönen Ausblick bot.

Noch besser als im Vorjahr!

  • 5 of 5

Das Wiedersehen mit dem Bahnwärterhäuschen nach einem Jahr war aufgrund der inzwischen erfolgten Fertigstellung eines Anbaus fast wie ein neues Erlebnis. Wir haben wiederum die zwei Wochen sehr genossen und werden hoffentlich erneut eine Reise in dieses Domizil inmitten der Natur, himmlischer Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit machen, zumal der Kontakt im Vorfeld und die Betreuung durch die Gastgeber exzellent ist. Vielen Dank!

Schönes Domizil in schöner Urlaubsgegend

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in Ihrem originellen, liebevoll eingerichteten Bahnwärterhäuschen sehr wohl gefühlt und dort zwei schöne Sommerferienwochen verbracht. Die umfangreich ausgestattete Küche erlaubt es, sich auch in dieser ländlichen Idylle gut zu verpflegen. Die Weitläufigkeit des Grundstückes und die ruhige Lage empfanden wir als sehr wohltuend und haben den Gartensitzplatz und die Liegen ausgiebig genutzt. Im Juni hatten wir ideales Wanderwetter und haben uns bei ausgedehnten Wandertouren, die in der Regel sehr gut ausgeschildert waren (vor allem Vogtland-Panoramaweg), die Landschaft auch dank der guten Bahnanbindung im Elstertal erschlossen. Aber auch bei nicht so gutem Wetter, bietet das Bahnwärterhäuschen Platz und eine Angebot zum Spielen oder Lesen. Neben der abwechslungsreichen Landschaft gibt es in der Region interessante Orte und Museen zu erkunden (Plauen, Greiz, Jocketa, Bad Elster, Klingenthal, Mödlareuth). Die zwei Wochen waren einfach zu kurz - aber interessant und sehr erholsam.

Car: recommended

A holiday home like we have all been looking for for a long time: a one-time signalman's house in the idyllic and secluded location in Vogtland, near Plauen. Here, you will experience the peacefulness of the land and solitude in nature. The signalman's house on a 3,000 m² property with apple trees was carefully and sustainably restored and newly built with wood and earth. The former railway embankment is now a well-built bike path on which you can reach, for example, the Pirk Dam in 20-30 minutes, with its swimming and boating.
