Classic Altbau from 1900
High ceilings; bright rooms
Popular residential area in Neukölln
The existing, period building was constructed around 1900, in the typical Berlin Altbau style, with beautiful high ceilings, wooden floors and stucco decoration, centred on a front building and side-wing. This building was modernised and partially refurbished, including the restoration of the simple, bright façade. As if this weren’t enough, an entirely new, 6-storey residential building will be raised as an annex in the courtyard, contrasting wonderfully with the existing building to form a harmonious whole.
With its high ceilings, large windows, and stucco decoration, this is a perfect example of the classic Altbau apartment, and shows just why they are so popular to live in. The practical layout over 57sqm makes it a very comfortable home; the bedroom faces into the inner courtyard, making it very quiet and peaceful, while the spacious living room faces towards Jahnstrasse. The balcony opens out from here, facing south and enjoying a lot of sun. These charms ensure the apartment is a great opportunity to invest in Berlin’s property market.
Though directly next to the hugely popular, busy and hip Neukölln, Britz has more of a neighbourhood feel to it. With numerous local shops, restaurants and cafes, Britz is its own, self-contained community, with plenty of green spaces and nature to explore. Yet it is also very well-connected to the rest of the city, if indeed you have any reason to leave...
