The terraced houses were built in 1924, and comprehensively refurbished in the 1990s-following reunification. It is a solid, four story construction, built around 6 stairways, three of which are accessed via Sangeallee, and the other three via Karl-Egon-Strasse. Inside, compact, practically designed apartments offer ideal abodes for singles and couples. Each apartment has its own balcony, from where the garden-like landscaping of the courtyard or the view to the street can be enjoyed.
The Eastern suburb of Karlshorst, part of wider Lichtenberg, has undergone significant change in recent years. It is far enough from the hustle and bustle of the city to provide an idyllic, quiet lifestyle, yet close enough that everything is within reach. It is an attractive area for families, drawn to its green character, beautiful restored buildings and relaxed pace of life. Living here provides an attractive economic alternative to inner-city living, and attractions such as the Friedrichsfelde animal park and the lakeside at Müggelsee are evidence of what is best about life outside of the city.
