While the Westfälisches Viertel is bustling with activity, Elberfelder Strasse 30 is a somewhat quieter address. The Altbau, built around 1900, consists of a front building and a side wing and welcomes residents and visitors with its well-kept facade in soft beige and an impressive staircase. Once you have had your fill of the original tiles, along with the newly repaired wall decorations and stucco ornaments, you can access the redesigned inner courtyard, which can also be accessed from the 1- to 4-bedroom apartments. These apartments have been expertly renovated. Special attention was paid to preserving the charming Altbau character, which can be seen not only from the carefully stripped and oiled, richly decorated entrance doors, but also from the sanded, newly sealed floorboards and well-preserved stucco ceilings. Meanwhile, new gas-floor heating, radiators, cords, electrics, and bathroom tiles and plumbing fixtures, bring modern comfort to this Altbau. In addition, each unit has a balcony or terrace where you can enjoy the view over Elberfelder Strasse or the quiet courtyard, depending on the orientation of the apartment.
Where can you find a perfectly composed symphony of city and life? Perhaps in the Westphalian Quarter in Moabit. Here, on the edge of the Spree, between Turmstrasse and Bundesratufer, carefully renovated Wilhelminian-style buildings welcome new residents. Restaurants with diverse menus await hungry visitors and well-tended green spaces and waterways attract fresh-air-loving explorers. Meanwhile, a few streets away, a colorful cultural scene opens up, led by a wide variety of cultures and young creatives. The Westphalian Quarter offers a vibrant mix of relaxed neighborhood life and urban pace, subtle trendiness and tradition.
