German term or phrase:mit einseitig frei schwebender Arbeitsplatte
Kochblock mit einseitig frei schwebender Arbeitsplatte.
This is in the sense that the worktop is not supported at one end by legs, etc.
Explanation: The worktop (or countertop) has an unsupported overhang on one end.
Looks like you pretty much had it yourself! :) There seem to be several variations using these same general terms.
How much unsupported overhang can my worktops have?
An unsupported span of 24" and up to a maximum of 36" is acceptable as long as the stone is supported on both sides of the span...
