Classic Altbau building, dating from 1890
Spacious, south-facing living room
Dating from 1890, this is the archetype of an Altbau apartment building. Square, solidly-built, perched on the corner of the street, its red-brick and stucco façade lends it an imperiousness which is confirmed by its historical monument status. Inside, the high ceilings and wooden floors offer space, comfort and a classic design aesthetic.
This apartment is ideal for young families, with 2 medium-sized bedrooms and a spacious living room. The living room faces south and, with its high ceilings and large windows, is wonderfully bright. The bedrooms and kitchen look into the peaceful gardens behind the building, and large balcony is reached from the kitchen. Add in a bathroom with a bathtub and there is really nothing else you could need.
The villas of Gohlis mark the classic epicentre of Leipzig's bourgeoisie. As you walk the streets, you can feel the sense of prestige and heritage emanating from the stately buildings you pass by. This is a peaceful area, which can sometimes feel removed from the youthful start-up spirit of Leipzig’s recent renaissance. Yet the centre is only a short train journey away, and even the hippest locations are easily reached.
