Classic Altbau building, dating from 1900
Lavishly decorated and superbly renovated
Spacious floor plan
Historically significant neighbourhood
Stately and distinguished on the outside, affluent and comfortable inside. The first thing which impresses you about this building is its solidity, the square shape and strong lines of the exterior artfully embellished by the stucco decoration of the façade. This is an aristocratic and dignified building which is matched perfectly by its surroundings. This affluence continues through the original entrance doors into the beautiful, spacious hallway, recently renovated and brought up to the highest possible standards, and then on into the apartments themselves.
This 128sqm apartment, sitting on the 4th floor, is newer and slightly more modern than those on the other floors. Yet what it lacks in old-fashioned stucco decoration and herringbone parquet flooring, it more than makes up for in clean lines and a classic design aesthetic… and all before you even consider the layout. However, the floorplan is certainly no afterthought. Three of the rooms, all wonderfully spacious, face onto the quiet, residential Gustav-Adolf-Strasse. On the other side of the hallway, another room and the kitchen share a spacious balcony, looking out into the pretty, green back garden. Beyond this are a master bathroom and separate guest bathroom, both of which are immaculately equipped. The apartment’s location on the top floor of the building also means that it is bathed in light.
The Waldstrassenviertel is Europe’s largest contiguous area of Gründerzeit buildings, and an area under special historic protection. It is close to the city centre, yet remains quiet and peaceful. It is known for its residential streets, yet is within easy walking distance of the beautiful Rosental Park and Auwald forest. It is synonymous with upper-class pursuits (Gustav Mahler is just one of the famous musicians to have lived here), yet is also right next to the Red Bull Arena, home of RB Leipzig football club. In short, Waldstrassenviertel really does have it all.
