Local Hilltop on Sale
This weekend, I noticed that the property is up for sale. A decent sized property, with a fifty-car parking lot, and a large building structure. They want 998,000 Euro. Yeah, it's a hefty price attached to it, and I'd have some doubts that he can get that much for the property.
There's not a big sorted history with the place. It was "settled" in 1930, and built up a reputation as a quiet mountain retreat for people to get into their cars and drive over for a drink or two, or a full-up dinner. You could spend five minutes walking up the tower stairway, to get a view of everything within five miles in any direction. Or you could park a fair bit away, and hike up the various trails to the restaurant.
The guy who owns it....isn't the guy who runs the restaurant today.....a rental deal. There's a fair amount of business going on, but it's not really a place that you'd seek out in cooler weather. I'd suspect that seventy percent of their business is done in spring and summer. On the other hand, there's a fair amount of catering done for wedding parties and such....which might occur all-year round.
I'm guessing it might take a while to sell the property. The guy who buys into this.....has a limit on income and there's not much space to add on more structure.....like a hotel.
So, if you wanted a rustic old-fashioned stone building on top of a hilltop overlooking Wiesbaden, with a eighty-year old tower.....and plenty of woods surrounding the whole structure....this is the deal.
