“First we take Manhattan – then we take Berlin”, as Leonhard Cohen intoned in 1988 in his inimitable way. One year later, the building was constructed – this building, with its wonderful penthouse. And yes, of course, the Berlin Wall fell too. Only a stone’s throw away from where it used to stand, in the heart of the city, those who live in this unique luxury apartment can now conquer the cosmopolitan city of Berlin, from above – and in all directions.
Above the roofs of Berlin: Penthouse with 152 m² terrace and underground parking near Anhalter Bahnhof
This extraordinary penthouse apartment was built in 2015 as a new building on an existing building dating from 1989. It was extensively redesigned in 2018 with plenty of room for sophisticated living and with numerous possibilities for satisfying the most diverse range of needs. From the underground car park, the lift takes you straight up to this superbly laid-out flat, which has 4.5 rooms and a living area of 225.51 m². It also includes the spacious roof terrace: a real dream come true above the roofs of Berlin with approximately 153 m² of space.
Inside, the penthouse offers a spacious, comfortable living and dining area, a bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite shower and bath. There is another bedroom, which can also be used as a study or a children’s room, a high-quality, fully-equipped kitchen with a spacious dining area, and a shower and bathroom, guest shower and a light-drenched gallery. The facilities of this luxurious residence include a video intercom system, Velux electric shutters which can be remotely programmed to open automatically, air conditioning, floor-to-ceiling windows and beautiful oiled oak floors in all living areas. Lockable spaces for prams, several parking spaces for bicycles in the underground car park and landscaped open spaces all belong to this prestigious building as well.
The location in a residential street in direct proximity to Potsdamer Platz and Anhalter Bahnhof combines the character of a quiet residential area with the extremely multifaceted reality of life at a top address in the middle of Berlin. Here you won’t just find yourself surrounded by first-class shopping facilities, schools, nursery schools, excellent doctors, cafés and restaurants. Berlin’s political elite meets regularly around the corner at the Abgeordnetenhaus; the former Prussian Parliament. Directly opposite is Martin-Gropius-Bau, a Mecca for the international contemporary art and exhibition scene. The Berlin Philharmonie, the Neue Nationalgalerie by Mies van der Rohe, and the Gemäldegalerie, with its unique collection of European fine art from the Middle Ages to the modern day, are just three more of the other cultural highlights to be found in the neighbourhood. Within walking distance, and equally pleasurable for the eye and the soul, is Tiergarten, with its paradisiacal avenues, paths and artfully designed gardens.
