Classic Altbau from 1900
Compact floor plan
Large living room
Unique location in Charlottenburg
Raised in 1900, the building’s elegant appearance lends a defining presence to the two streets it overlooks. With its stately air and striking oriel windows at the very top, it is the queen of buildings on Mierendorff Island. Its façade was extensively renovated in 2018, with the stairwells repainted and modernised and a completely redesigned courtyard, restoring the building to its original splendour. Careful renovation preserves the pleasing proportions of this period building and typical interior features, such as stucco moulding, panel doors, turned handrails and elegant floorboards, offering ‘primo piano’ living on every floor.
This compact apartment, spread over 35sqm, wastes no space. The hallway opens into the bright living room, with its wooden floors and large box windows looking into the courtyard making it feel even more spacious. The separate kitchen has room for a table and chairs, with more than enough space to entertain friends. The apartment’s location, in the side-wing of the building, promises peace and quiet, and a refuge from the bustle of the city.
Often, it would seem that there is nothing new left to be discovered. But in Berlin, there is always room for the unexpected. How about an island in the middle of the city? Surrounded by water, Mierendorff Island lies in the sophisticated district of Charlottenburg, offering light, fresh air, and a skyline that stretches as far as the eye can see. This is an island of urban bliss, with picnics dotting the river banks, local farmers selling their produce at the weekly market, and people passing the time at cafés. Yet with a new urban quarter in development nearby, this is also a neighbourhood with an eye on the future.
