This urban owner-occupied flat profits from a fantastic location in the heart of the city, a well-thought-out layout, an excellent interior, and a number of very special extras. This is the perfect home for a family or a couple who love the big city, but who also appreciate having somewhere peaceful to retreat to. In short, it’s a place to come home to.
Loft-style 4-room flat with 2 balcony terraces, underground parking and lift in top Berlin-Friedrichshain location
The flat is in mint condition and is on the second floor of the Kopernikushöfe loft ensemble, which was completed in 2009 and is to be found in the rear portion of a large, quiet, green plot in the popular Berlin neighbourhood of Friedrichshain. It has an area of over 132 m2. The flat consists of three rooms, any of which could serve as a sitting room, a bedroom, or a children’s room, as well as a guest bathroom, a bathroom with a bathtub and a large lounge-style open-plan kitchen and sitting area with two balcony terraces.
The apartment is easily reached by means of a lift, which also provides access to the underground car park. Red oak parquet flooring lends a tasteful air to the living areas, while the bathrooms are fully tiled, and the floor of the work area of the open kitchen is laid with 45 x 45 cm tiles. A chimney flue is already present where the kitchen and the sitting area meet, meaning it would be a straightforward matter to install a crackling fireplace to make this flat even cosier during the colder, darker months of the year. The built-in cupboards, some of which are floor-to ceiling (ceiling height 3.10 m), make it easy to tastefully hide away all sorts of tools, supplies, and equipment. The wooden window frames and wooden balcony doors are provided with insulated glazing, embodying the classical modernity which characterises the style of the property as a whole. The two roofed balcony terraces (almost 16 m2 and just under 4 m2), have been fitted with hardwood floorboards, and allow those who live here to enjoy the relaxing view across the well-tended garden spaces of the inner courtyard, with various trees, lawns, flowerbeds, places to sit, and play areas. District heating and solar panels provide the flat with warm water and heating. To reduce long-term costs, the flat has been fitted with underfloor heating, which can be operated separately in each room. A storage area of some 6 m2 in the cellar of the building also belongs to the flat. In the basement there is a storage room for bicycles as well as the apartment’s very own parking space. Planning is currently underway for the installation of charging stations for electric cars.
As you would expect, a central location such as this offers absolutely everything that makes the heart of this city such an appealing place to live. Nursery schools and numerous primary and secondary schools are all within walking distance. The same goes for the provision of everyday needs, with supermarkets, shopping centres such as the East Side Mall, and specialist shops all nearby. Numerous cafés and restaurants round off the diverse range of amenities present in the neighbourhood. In terms of transport connections, the location benefits from the further advantage of excellent connections to public transport, with U-Bahn, S-Bahn, tram and bus stops all in the immediate neighbourhood and access, via the B5 and the 96A connecting roads, to motorways and other arterial roads serving central Berlin. The great appeal of the location is completed by the parks and green spaces scattered across the area surrounding the apartment.
