Classic Altbau building from 1900
Building recently renovated
Stripped wooden floorboards & high ceilings
Very popular neighbourhood
With its high ceilings, beautiful floorboards and stylish stucco decorations, this building is a perfect example of what makes Altbau apartments so coveted. Built around 1900, the timelessly simple architecture consists of a front house, a side wing and a connected transverse building. All apartments have a balcony, to better enjoy the Neukölln air. The building was recently modernised, with the entrance, stairwells, façade and courtyard seeing extensive revision. Weserstrasse 15 is now under ‘Milieuschutz’, or a ‘Social Preservation Statute’ enacted to spare certain areas from negative consequences of urban development.
From high ceilings to beautiful stripped wooden floorboards - with a floorplan of 74sqm, this 1-bedroom apartment is ideal for singles or couples. Some stylish stucco ornamentation is still preserved on the 3-meter high walls, and the original wooden doors and windows remain, adding a certain Altbau elegance to the apartment. More practical is the additional chamber, which can be used as a storeroom, wardrobe or pantry. The apartment has a balcony on the street side as well as windows to the rear to the quiet inner courtyard.
Neukölln is one of the most colourful and exciting districts of Berlin, especially the northern strip, close to the border with Kreuzberg, known as “Kreuzkölln”. This is an area full of hip bars, galleries, cafés and shops, with a young, creative, multi-cultural population, with Weserstrasse at its centre. At the same time, it remains an attractive residential area, with a large number of beautiful Altbau buildings, at an affordable price. To escape the hustle and bustle of the city, it is only a short hop to Hasenheide park, and the Landwehrkanal is a welcome stretch of water, perfect for strolling along on a summer’s evening. Many start-ups and young companies have settled here in recent times, yet despite all this, Kiez-life has remained authentic, honest and pleasantly unaffected.
