Above the gateway, a three-cornered pediment with richly profiled tuff moulding and the gold-plated, painted matrimonial coat-of-arms of von Bourscheidt and von Schaesberg, flanked by golden lions.
The mansard roof over the gateway is arched in a dome-like way and crowned by a beautiful hexagonal turret. At the tip of the turret there is a multi-pointed golden star.
Heavy old oak door with hand-forged nails; the drive has a beamed ceiling and embrasures on both sides; behind it a wrought-iron gate with gold-plated spear-heads; this gate can be opened electronically.

The right-hand door leads into a room with medieval cross-vaulting; this takes one to a guest-room with bathroom, WC, all with under-floor heating) and a glass door that leads on to a south-facing terrace.
On the ground floor there is a further apartment with 3 rooms, a kitchen and bathroom (its own central heating) and a large veranda with a broad stairway leading to its own separate garden.
