Known as Hellerup Manor House this large L-shaped heritage-listed dwelling has been home to Knud Erik Hansen and his family since 2002 (although records on Hellerup Manor House date as far back as 1419).
In order to reach the entrance residents and visitors cross a bridge that traverses a moat surrounding the residence. Reconstructed on various occasions the present building’s oldest section dates from the baroque architectural period in 1670.
Despite its charismatic use of matte orange and varying shades of blue the living area feels exquisite and visually balanced. Contemporary décor such as the plush couch in gray sculptural coffee tables and colorful accessories give the 900-square-meter residence a fabulous family zone.
A large wall-to-wall bookcase in the living area ends up becoming the focal point of the social zone and also adds plenty of color while the all-white dining space and the black and white kitchen strictly stay away from brighter hues.
Various shades of gray also add to the modern color palette that is embraced by the cozy bedrooms and relaxing bathrooms as well. Bringing the best of past and present together this is indeed the perfect home for a cosmopolitan hub like Rome (and still evokes memories of its celebrated past)!
