Description of the residence
Villa Čerych is one of the gems of the pre-war architecture. A two-storey pretentious building with a large garden was after its completion a wedding gift of the factory owner Ladislav Barton who gave the villa to his niece Marie Čerychová. The author of the design was one of the major Czech architects Otakar Novotný who besides others designed the building of the famous Mánes in Prague and the building of the Publisher Štenc in Prague.
Čerych villa is notable for its delicate moulding profile and rational surface and volume layout but also for the decorative use of arches a favourite motive of rondocubism and art deco style. The wide staircase leading into the garden belonged to the spectacular elements. A large decorative pool is also part of the garden which used to have metal frogs for gargoyles in its corners.
The extensive garden of the area of 1,3 hectares was started in 1925 according to the design of a major Czech garden architect Joseph Kumpán of Prague. Its space is richly divided into individual separate units different in character which are naturally interconnected and thus form a unified compositional complex. In the more remote corners it continues into a more natural English park. Besides basic vegetational elements, for example trees and groups of bushes complemented with flower planting there are some smaller garden buildings located in individual parts.
