Historical hotel/restaurant/conference center for sale in the heart of Viimsi!
This beautiful property, now named the "Viimsi Peokeskus" (Viimsi Party Center) was part of the grounds of the St. Birgitta Convent in 1471, and the original building was the barn to hold the food supplies for the nuns. In later years it was associated with the noble families of von Stenbock, von Buxhoevden, von Maydell and von Schottländer, as well as being owned by the Commander-in-chief of the Estonian army, General Laidoner, from 1919 to 1940. After the building burned in 1865, it got it's present shape as a granary. It has changed through the centuries, and eventually this 545 year old building was completely renovated between 2006 and 2011, making it the most romantic and stunning hotel in Viimsi.
The restaurant has two dining rooms, with beautiful brick and stone walls. In the outer room of the restaurant, guests can have their dinner by the fireplace, enjoying the view of the large aquarium in the wall, or looking out to the summer terrace that overlooks the large pond below.
The large kitchen has a wonderful stone hearth pizza oven, which the guests seated in the inner restaurant room can see from their table.
Upstairs you will find the conference center hall that holds up to 200 people, along with a beautiful bar, fireplace, and sound system all set to entertain weddings, parties, and seminars.
The back half of the building houses the Brigitta hotel, named for the Bridgettine Order, with 10 standard hotel rooms and bathrooms, and a stunning Indian style suite that has it's own dining area, fireplace, and jacuzzi tub in it's own on-suite bathroom.
Your guests may relax in the sauna center, with a woodburning sauna and hot tub, or in the fireplace lounge for more intimate parties or smaller seminars.
You will find quality designer touches throughout the building, including wrought-iron door handles, stair railings, and light fixtures, specially made and brought from the Estonian island of Saaremaa. Renovated with quality wood, stone, and brick, the Center is a successful hotel and restaurant, and the building can be turned over to the new owners with no new renovations necessary.
The building has it's own heating system, and is equipped with floor heating and radiators. Because the walls are so thick, they hold in the heat well. When the weather is not extremely cold, it's possible to use only the fireplaces to take the chill off and of course add atmosphere, keeping the expenses to a minimum. It is a sturdy structure, with stone walls and stone roof. It has all of the proper documentation - building permissions, using permissions, etc.
A special bonus is the pond on the property in front of the restaurant. It is deep enough to be used to breed fish, or could be used for guests to swim in or paddle boating in the summer.
The Viimsi Peokeskus sits on a hill away from traffic, but just a 5 minute walk to 4 different grocery stores, a bowling alley, Spa, cinema, clothing stores, jewelry stores, coffee shops and fast food restaurants, bank machines, and more. It is just a few minute drive to the beaches of Haabneeme and a 20 minute drive to the center of Tallinn. The perfect location!
