Idyllically situated in the beautiful district of Karlshorst yet close to the city proper and built with no small degree of creative inspiration, this extraordinary owner-occupied flat not only captivates the visitor with its tasteful interior design, furnishings and high ceilings, but also offers individuals, couples and small families a great deal of variety and quality of life. A modern classic, sophisticated and in tune with the spirit of the times.
This 3-room freehold flat, intelligently orientated along a north–south axis, is part of an Altbau apartment building constructed in 1935 in the Berlin district of Karlshorst, an area which is also known as the “Dahlem of the East”. Comfortably situated on a bright elevated ground floor, one enters this beautiful 108 m2 apartment via the central hallway, from which all rooms can the be reached. On the left-hand side is the bedroom, measuring over 23 m2. This comfortable room, equipped with electric roller blinds is followed by a children’s room measuring a good 22 m2 with a beautiful, oriel-like conservatory, which is also well suited to use as a study or guest room. At the end of the hall, on the right, the flat opens out into the extremely spacious living and well-being area of this stylish apartment. With an area of almost 39 m2, it has an exclusive Eggersmann fitted kitchen. This is a real eye-catcher, in part thanks to the uniquely designed cubic kitchen island and breakfast bar with spotlights, and the Berbel kitchen hood. Tasteful creative accents enliven the ceiling of the room in the form of stucco features and a ceiling fan made by Artemis. The sitting room with its fireplace also has a very special ambience, which is further enhanced by the dimmable wall spotlights. The sitting room and the bedrooms all have warm wooden floors. The large windows, which are present in nearly all rooms, allow an incredible amount of daylight into the whole flat. Even the guest toilet also has a window of its own. The bathroom, which is equipped with both a bath and a shower, also has under-floor heating, ensuring an even greater level of comfort.
Both the sitting room and the kitchen provide access to the quiet south-facing balcony. From here, there is a view of the green courtyard and its collection of old trees. In the basement, there is also a large room with a window. This also belongs to the flat, and provides plenty of room for storage and for leaving bicycles, for example.
The district of Karlshorst is characterised by late 19th century villas and plenty of green spaces. The harness racing track, the zoo and the park and woodlands of Wuhlheide are well known attractions in this quarter. The heterogeneous local infrastructure is further enriched by the presence of numerous educational institutions, such as HTW Berlin, the University of Applied Sciences. Nearby Treskowallee is the district’s hub of culture and shopping, and also provides rapid access to the B1/B5, a transport connection to the Berliner Ring and a direct connection to Alexanderplatz. The flat is extremely well-connected in terms of public transport, with both tram stops and the S-Bahn within walking distance. It takes only 20 minutes or so to get to Alexanderplatz by public transport, or a quarter of an hour by car – the same amount of time it takes to reach Adlershof Science and Technology Park.
