Loft-style 2.5 room attic flat, like new, with terrace, gallery, and view across Viktoriapark
This skilfully converted loft-style flat is on the attic floor of an apartment building which dates back to 1905. A lift takes you straight up to this bright refuge above the city rooftops, built during the course of the complete renovation of this floor in 2011/12.
The living area of over 92 m² consists of a generous living and dining area, including a cooking studio; a bedroom; and a bathroom, complete with a bathtub, an accessible shower, a toilet, and heated towel rails. The gallery is a true highlight, in every sense of the word. Accessed via a wood-panelled staircase, it is ideally suited for use as a bedroom. Overhead, seven Velux roof windows flood the flat with natural light. Five of these are positioned above the dining area in the form of a shed roof. Underfoot, the living areas have all recently been floored with new oak parquet. The bathroom is very tastefully decorated and has been fitted out with modern tiling. The roof windows, which can be controlled electronically, are equipped with rain sensors and also have external remote control sunblinds. Triple glazed casement windows ensure optimal energy savings and a quiet indoor environment. The ceiling, which is up to 4.50 metres high, lends this attic floor flat of 114 m² an extraordinarily generous sense of space. At the same time, the partly revealed roofing timbers give this flat a very tasteful atmosphere, with an exciting mixture of tradition and roughness. One of the rooms can be integrated into the main room or separated from it by means of a sliding wall. Looking out from here, there is a wonderful uninterrupted view across Viktoriapark. This room, which could be used as a bedroom or as a study, is connected to a small storage room and has double French windows which open out onto a small balcony. The roof terrace of more than 13 m² offers a great deal of privacy and faces the inner courtyard. The wooden decking has recently been renewed. This freshly renovated apartment has energy-saving underfloor heating, creating a very agreeable indoor climate, and a video intercom system, providing convenience and security.
This extraordinary loft apartment is in the middle-class neighbourhood of Kreuzberg, and neighbours the historic and leafy Victoriapark, whose rocky waterfall tumbles down the wooded hillside and towards the city centre. This is a location with a great diversity of restaurants, sports facilities and grassy spots to sit and lie in the sun, all of which provide an extraordinary quality of life. Bergmannstrasse, with all its life and vibrancy and the delicious delights of the Marheineke Markthalle, is about 1 km away, and the popular district of Schöneberg is right next door. U-Bahn and S-Bahn stations are all within walking distance, and the nearest sliproad onto the city motorway is a mere 2 km away.
