The apartment on Lai street 11, located in the heart of Old Tallinn will amaze you with the existance of artfully restored medieval architecture design elements. The property on Lai street 11 was first mentioned in medieval Land Register of Tallinn in 1432, while the existing residential house was built in 1540 as the Tönnies Wibbekingk family residence. The apartment on ground floor consists of 3 bedrooms, large living room with open kitchen, bathroom and the basement. The windows of the living room offer a beautiful view of the houses and church towers of the Tallinn Old Town.
The living room is the epitome of carefully restored elements of medieval architecture and art, such as richly decorated stone pillars with first owner`s cote of arms and virtue frescos on window panes. The feeling of reminiscence is overwhelming, looking at the date of 1547 carved above the window pillar and later baroque flower ornaments painted over the original fresco of the fourth virtue - Justice. Well preserved part of medieval hypocaust heating system was found under kitchen floor boards and is now displayed under glass cover, providing another unique experience.

The apartment has undergone a complete renovation in 2021, during which as much antique and valuable as possible was restored, but at the same time, the home was given a modern look. Technical systems have been modernized, gas boiler and underfloor heating systems have been installed.
Cozy cafes and restaurants, cultural and entertainment facilities, as well as beautiful parks and the green area of Nunne Street are just a few steps away from the apartment. Despite of the location in the heart of Old Town this home is quiet and peaceful.
