The listed old building at Mockauer Strasse 18 blends effortlessly into the Gründerzeit ambience so typical of Leipzig. The classic clinker brick facade reveals numerous decorative elements - including detailed medallions and ornate window frames, cornices and frieze bands. The historic atmosphere also continues in the staircase of the Gründerzeit building, which was built around 1903. The antique wooden doors and the feminine ceiling paintings have been expertly restored, while an original wooden staircase leads up three floors to the attic.While meticulous attention was paid to preserving the old building elements in the facade and staircase areas, the focus in the nine freshly renovated apartments is on straightforward aesthetics and modern amenities. Living rooms, kitchens and hallways were fitted with new laminate flooring and the bathrooms were newly tiled. In addition, all units received new interior doors, wall and ceiling paints and sanitary objects.
Around Mockauerstrasse, bistros, restaurants, small shops and a bakery cater to everyday needs, while a shopping center at the end of the street is ideal for a stroll or two. If you follow the quieter side streets eastward, you will reach the extensive Abtnaundorfer Park with its pond, monopteros, and adjoining magnificent villas. Westward, on the other hand, Leipzig shows its industrial side and reveals numerous commercial and shopping destinations. Thanks to many bus, streetcar and S-Bahn stations, you are well connected everywhere and can reach Leipzig's main train station in an average of 15 minutes.
