The Owners

In the more than 700 years of this historic town house’s existence, less than 40 persons/families were owners.

The first registered proprietor was the mayor of Vienna, Chunrad Vorlauf, who owned this house until 1386. Seven more owners are registered until the 16th century. The house sign “Where the cow plays a board game” has decorated the house since the first half of the 16th century and, according to a legend, it was finished on behalf of the owner at that time – namely the Viennese municipal judge, Hieronymus Kuh (cow).

By the middle of the 19th century the house had had 15 owners, including several noblemen. Up until the purchase and restauration of the town house by family-owned Consentia in 2010, a further 13 changes of ownership took place.

The Location

The first district is not only the historic centre of Vienna but also a UNESCO world heritage site. It features the Viennese Opera House, numerous historical places and has real old-world charm. Graben and Kärntner Straße are the top addresses in Vienna, favoured by luxury boutiques and top brand outlets.
