The freshly painted facade of the old building at Karl-Heine-Strasse 47 is quite convincing. Detailed ornamental heads meet playful brackets and frieze bands, artistic window roofing meets perfectly shaped pilasters. A harmonious overall impression that continues in the expertly renovated staircase. Durable wooden doors and filigree stucco elements on the walls and ceiling bear witness to the high level of building and decorative art of past centuries, while an original wooden staircase leads residents and visitors up several floors to the apartments on offer. The fourteen apartments, some of which are vacant and some rented, are spread over the first floor and four regular floors. The attic and basement also offer space for cellars and storage rooms. The apartments range in size from two to three rooms and from 65 to 88 square meters. Some of the apartments have balconies facing the quiet courtyard, and all have room heights of up to 3.30 meters, typical of old buildings.
A colorful variety of cafés, restaurants and bars provide the culinary setting, while small boutiques with lovingly displayed unique items and vintage articles add commercial charm. It's no wonder that the trendy neighborhood around Karl-Heine-Strasse is one of the most popular in Leipzig - after all, popular city oases such as the canal of the same name, the Elsterbecken, the Palmengarten and Clara-Zetkin-Park are only a few minutes' walk away.
