A truffle, hidden in the Berlin property market! Stepping into this flat, one immediately succumbs to its extraordinary charm. Although it does indeed require substantial renovation work, this is also one of the great advantages of this property. The future owners of this apartment will be able to shape it in accordance with their very own needs and desires. Thanks to its outstanding and convenient location in Zehlendorf, the residents of this delightful piano nobile flat can enjoy all the conveniences of the area.
The 110 sqm of this property provide the ideal prerequisites for a cultivated lifestyle. Wonderfully well-proportioned and just a few steps above the ground floor, the flat consists of 4.5 rooms, a kitchen, a bathroom and a hallway. The external condition of this building, which dates from 1903, is extremely good and the staircase, the façade, and the roof have been well cared for. The lively heart of this very well-proportioned flat is the sun-filled suite of three south-facing rooms. All three can be accessed separately from the hall. They are also connected to each other by beautiful old wooden doors, some of which are double-leaved. Almost identical in area, these three rooms combine to produce a harmonious sense of indoor space and permit a wide variety of uses. The cubic room, which most recently served as a drawing room, opens out onto a balcony, providing a connection to the quiet, verdant surroundings and the mature trees growing nearby. The view from the balcony room, like all the other south-facing rooms reaches unhindered across the wide residential street, past stately buildings, and into the blue expanse of the sky. In the summer months, the greenery of the broadleaf trees provides a comfortable environment, providing welcome shade from the intense summer sun. All three of the bright main rooms still have their original stucco, and the floorboards, which are present in almost all rooms, are also still original. Just one of the rooms was later fitted out with a high quality wooden parquet. On the opposite side of the hallway is the pantry (with a window), the kitchen and a room which would be ideal as a bedroom. The bathroom is at the end of the hallway, and also has its own window.
Heating for the flat is provided by a gas-fired condensing boiler. Rather than having a section of the cellar, additional storage space (1.88 sqm) is available in the easily-accessed ground floor. In the courtyard to the rear, there is a pretty, shared garden and a shared garage, which also has space for bicycles. Also worth a mention is the fact that the HOA fee here is very reasonable.
Enjoy the tasteful residential culture of the surrounding leafy middle-class Berlin neighbourhood of Zehlendorf. The local area boasts a great number of gardens and parks, as well as primary schools, secondary schools (Gymnasien) restaurants, bakeries, cafés, supermarkets, two shopping centres, various specialist doctors and, last but not least, the various institutes of the Freie Universität and many internationally renowned research institutes. On top of all this, the neighbourhood has fashion shops, gyms, bookshops and two bars. The nearby B1 provides excellent access to the city centres of Berlin and Potsdam, as well as providing a connection to the surrounding countryside and the motorway network. With numerous S-Bahn lines, U-Bahn lines, and bus routes in the area, the flat is also very well-connected to the public transport network.
