FREE GUIDE INCLUDEDTop 10 Tips for Buying Property
Built in 1814 and renovated in 1874, this classically styled Altbau formerly served as the residence of the extended family and contemporaries of the Prussian royal family. The building's main interior staircase is still preserved to its full glory, as is the visible outdoor staircase. This grand home was only divided into apartments after the construction of the Hochbahn (today it is the S-Bahn) train. The generously sized livings rooms (40sqm) are superbly designed andhave even attracted various TV and film directors to include this space in their work. A 4 bedroom apartment comprising of 184 sqm has now become available on the third floor of this exclusive building. On entering the apartment, the rooms impress themselves due to their sheer size, high ceilings decorated with stucco, and sensational cherry wood parquet flooring. A unique highlight of this apartment is the oversized double doors, typical of the classic altbau style. There are seven of these elegant doors throughout the apartment, all of which have been restored to their original magnificence at time they were originally built. By opening both wings of the apartment a continuous line of sight is established. Additionally, the design of the home enables all rooms to be accessed from both the hallway and from the individual rooms. This particular architectural design was originally created to meet the high expectations of the building's former residents, as the guests of the royal family were accustomed to the upper-class royal palaces of Berlin, Potsdam and Koenigsberg. This beautiful Altbau is exclusive not only due its timeless classical design, but because of its unique and everlasting history that is evident as soon as you enter the apartment.Next to Monbijoupark, home of the King's Monbijou Palace until it was deconstructed in 1956, Monbijouplatz is ideally located - right in the centre of Berlin. The apartment has exclusive, unobstructed views of the Berliner Dom, the reconstructed city palace, as well as the neighbouring Hackeschen Markt. The left side of the apartment has views of the Synagogue on Oranienburger Strasse. Situated on the River Spree opposite Monbijouplatz, the three renowned museums on Museum Island can be seen directly from the apartment windows, and of course they are only a few minutes' walk away. Berlin's iconic TV tower located at Alexanderplatz can also be seen from the wings of the building.From a technical perspective, the high quality yet delicate restoration is clear to the onlooker. The split air-conditioning system has been skillfully integrated, ensuring that the entire apartment remains comfortably cool during the hot Berlin summers. An elevator was also installed during the restoration.Black Label's international team can offer advice on all stages of property purchase, from the financial benefits of buying property in Germany to the step by step process of acquiring your new home or investment.
