The château villa is a physical representation of Spitzer´s travelling experience, education, social respectability and at the same time love to his native area. The functional and artistic complexity of the compound is indeed absolutely unique.
Although the villa was designed by a Viennese architect Gustav Schöller in the style of French opulent châteaus on Loira river the construction was assigned to the local construction company of Rýmařov. The steel construction of the roof trussing was made by the bridge constructing company of Vítkovice ironworks and for the roof covering roofing slate from the deposit in Nízký Jeseník was used. The interior harmoniously applies some art deco elements according to the designs of a significant architect and painter František Kysela, active at Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague. The garden was designed by professor Friedrich Henn from Lednice.
Although the château villa was primarily built for the second wife of Julius Spitzer it was at the same time supposed to serve as a seat of the family of Spitzer, the family of highly educated attorneys, technicians and scientists. The characteristic atmosphere of this seat was thus naturally very attractive both for the Nazi who confiscated the villa during the war and for the Communists who appropriated the villa after the war. The new owner will still enjoy the original equipment of the villa that has been almost completely preserved (including the furniture and other house contents of the property of the family of Spitzer).
Spitzer château villa does not only represent an architectural masterpiece. It is a place of unusual historical legacy, spirit and independent future.
