The Lindenhof is a former winegrower's house with a spacious, south-facing garden, which is a former wine plant and is now considered a work of landscape and garden design . The property is located at Maxim-Gorki-Straße 18 in the Oberlößnitz district of the Saxon city of Radebeul .
The two-story, listed former winegrower's house stands on a large corner plot of land facing Emil-Högg-Straße. The five-axis house has single-storey, set back side buildings on both sides. The simple plastered building stands over a barrel-shaped cellar vault and carries a high hipped roof with three gable dormers, on the ground floor there is a central arched portal.
The winegrower's house has the same dimensions and the same roof height and inclination as the ballroom building of Haus Sorgenfrei . On the upper floor there is still illusionistic ceiling painting.
The Lindenhof is an example of the smooth transition from the simple winegrowers' houses to the more stately houses.
Not far from the Breitig House, which had already been built earlier, there was another winery on the map of the Saxon cartographer Hans August Nienborg . There, around 1789, the resident Johann Gottlieb Trobisch, who was listed as court mason foreman in the Dresden court files in 1801, built a winegrower's house on his own vineyard, which was built at the same time as the nearby ballroom building of Haus Sorgefrei. It is not known whether Trobisch participated in the construction of the “Sorgenfrei” building, but comparative buildings from the area support this assumption.
In 1804 the vineyard property belonged to the electoral factor of the Meißen porcelain factory , Wilhelm Ferdinand Gandtner, who was succeeded as owner by the merchant Christian Schubert. His heirs sold the property to the Rittmeister von Grünenwald in 1841. In 1853 the name "Lindenhof" is mentioned in writing, probably because of the linden trees in the south in front of the house, in connection with a popular Loessnitz restaurant operated there . Between 1866 and 1900, most of the vineyard area was parceled out and sold. From around 1900, most of these parcels were developed.
From the owner family Mann from Cotta the property passed in 1908 to the widow of Hofrat von Koenneritz , Isidore geb. by Kyaw . This operated the Oberlößnitz children's home in the building until 1945 .
The closest residents were Soviet officers. In 1947, the Radebeul architect Paul Löffler (1886–1952) built five small apartments in the main building and offices for the local employment office in one of the extensions. It is not on record whether the eponymous linden trees south of the winery were felled before the end of the Second World War or were felled afterwards and were probably burned for heating purposes. A short time later, the employment office was followed by consumer advertising as a new user. From 1950 the cellar was rebuilt, a remaining barrel store still indicates the former use as a winegrower's house.
After the political turnaround, the property was sold to two families who, from the end of the 1990s, redeveloped the building in accordance with historical monuments. And a linden tree was planted again in front of the house .
