The first entries in the house chronicle date back to 1745. According to seafarer Peter Theides, farmer Boy Thiessen moved into the residential house with tan and stable in 1830. His family lived there until the end of the records in 1967 and the house is still named after him today. This traditional "Thiessen-Hof" was reconstructed over four years by architect, furniture designer and Sylter by choice Siegfried Schelbach according to Frisian tradition, renewed in the sense of monument protection and modernized with great attention to detail.

The result is 400 sqm of extraordinary living space, surrounded by wide meadows, fields and heath landscapes.
