Classic Altbau building, dating from 1900
Lavishly decorated and superbly renovated
Spacious floor plan
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 opulently spacious apartment is truly some of the finest living in Leipzig. The details captivate you as soon as you walk in. Intricate herringbone parquet flooring, sculpted stucco decoration, double-wing doors, some even featuring a classically-inspired architrave… and all of this before you even consider the layout. Luckily, spread over 129sqm, the floorplan is no afterthought. Three of the rooms, all wonderfully spacious and one with a beautiful balcony with wrought-iron railings, face onto the quiet, residential Gustav-Adolf-Strasse. On the other side of the hallway, the kitchen also has a balcony, looking out into the pretty, green back garden. Next to this is a smaller room, and beyond that the two bathrooms, both of which are immaculately equipped.
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.
