This is the Berlin of diamonds, fur coats and champagne. A world away from all the short-lived trends of the metropolis, you will encounter charm, tradition and a cultivated way of life at every turn. Magnificent façades promise interiors just as splendid. Life here spills out onto the street from cafés, bistros, book stores and boutiques. It is an intellectual, artistic-academic life, decadent in a scholarly way. Today as in bygone days, this is the exquisite world of Charlottenburg residences.
Dating from 1909, this is a typically-sophisticated Charlottenburg Altbau. With its bay windows and loggias, and the exterior decoration structured by ledges and ashlar render, the building radiates poise, refinement and stability. The white, wooden double-cased windows contrast wonderfully with the quince-yellow hue of the façade, showing an elegant subtlety. And this elegance continues throughout the interior of the building, from the stucco ornamentation to the Art Déco-inspired light fittings. Add these graceful design elements to the warm wooden flooring, white walls and spacious apartments, and you have a beautiful and desirable home.
This cosmopolitan western district owes little to Berlin’s grungy, hedonistic reputation of recent years. Instead, here you will find the best of sophisticated, elegant, mature Berlin, albeit with a growing youthful hipness in some places. The world-famous Ku’Damm, Berlin’s best-known shopping street, is minutes away, and the local restaurants are some of the best in the city. This is truly some of the finest living in the city.
