4-storey Altbau with front and garden house, built in 1907
East-facing covered balcony
Practical storage room in kitchen
Newly designed green inner courtyard
Popular neighbourhood in Neukölln
Built in 1907, this Belle Époque property consists of a four-storey front building complete with attic floor, an annexed back building plus two courtyards. In 2017, its façades were restored and repainted, and the building derives much of its charm from its colour scheme and the symmetric lines, including the square signature box windows. Overall, the house divides into 28 residential units spread across front and back building, and ranging in size from 48 to 128 sqm. Each apartment comes with a balcony or loggia, and a basement storage room.
This attractive 3-bedroom Altbau apartment offers plenty of space for every situation. Should the street-facing room with a beautiful loggia be the living room, or should it be the vast, 38sqm room the centre of the apartment? That depends on whether you have children, or you simply like to have a lot of space to spread out. Many charming and elegant details add to the apartment, such as the wonderful stripped wooden floorboards and high ceilings, the pantry adjoining the kitchen, or the relaxing bathtub. This is a superb family home.
Night or day, there is always something happening in Neukölln. It is a strikingly young and international crowd, and a real creative melting pot, with everyone coexisting peacefully, side-by-side. Finowstrasse itself is a rather quiet residential street, slightly contradicting the bustle of the local area. Families account for 26% of the population in multi-cultural Neukölln, which is considerably higher than the citywide average. There is obviously a large number of trendy pubs, galleries, cafés, health-food stores and boutique stores that lend the quarter a fresh young appearance. At the same time, many young entrepreneurs and startups have chosen northern Neukölln as their place of business. Demand for apartments remains high in the area and this, coupled with a scarcity of properties, has led to soaring prices in recent years, a trend which shows little sign of stopping.
