Engel & Völkers castles expert Christoph von Schenck about the manor house Altfresenburg The manor house Altfresenburg is an architectural jewel. The property was built in 1791 and is regarded as the last remaining mansion to be preserved in its original state as designed by the Danish architect, who is arguably the most influential proponent of Classicism in northern Europe. In addition to Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen and other archetypal buildings, some of the finest classical-style private residences on Hamburg’s Palmaille and the legendary Elbchaussee were also designed on Hansen’s drawing board. Christoph von Schenck, Head of the Engel & Völkers business segment Castles & Manor Houses, describes in an interview on Engel & Völkers Channel 24, the special architectural features of Altfresenburg and reveals the reasons why historic properties have this special flair.
