“Get loft in Berlin!” – Right in the middle of the buzzing district of Friedrichshain, this light-filled and generously-proportioned loft is both a haven to retreat to and a beachhead for the conquest of the city. Looking out across a large, open courtyard, this bright flat enchants visitors with its surprising peacefulness. Here, individuals and couples alike can enjoy all the advantages of industrial architecture which has been transformed in order to perfectly suit modern needs: high ceilings, clear structures and plenty of light, thanks to its location on the topmost floor of this beautiful red and white tile-clad former yarn factory. The building itself dates from the beginning of the 20th century.
Fully renovated as recently as 2014, this 74.5 m² loft apartment owes its very special atmosphere to a superbly upmarket interior, and the high quality materials used during the renovation. One enters the third floor flat via an attractive access balcony in the courtyard and a wooden door, cream in colour and framed by symmetrical windows. Having passed through this door, you find yourself in the 55 m² main room. The floor is laid with elegant merbau parquet, above which the luminous 3.6 metre-high walls express a feeling of true grandeur. The balcony, which faces the morning sun, has an area of more than 12m² and a floor of balau wood, resilient and most pleasant to the touch. The open-plan kitchen and living area is separated from the sleeping area by a wall which is open on both sides, and which can be removed at any time, as it is not load bearing. The fitted kitchen is very functional, with a welcoming layout and up-to-date kitchen appliances. The bathroom of approx. 7.5m², with modern steel details, has a combined bathtub and shower, a bidet, a toilet, a handbasin and a cupboard. Skylights allow daylight into the room, and there is also plenty of space for a washing machine. The flat also has its own room in the basement and a parking space (purchase price 30.000 €) in the underground car park, which is easily accessed using the lift. Another of the “assets” which comes with this very special property is the modest HOA fee.
The loft is to be found in Friedrichshain, in the much coveted area between Comeniusplatz and Boxhagener Platz. This is one of the most sought-after areas in the city, greatly loved by young and old alike. The hip Simon-Dach neighbourhood is just around the corner. At the weekends, this is where you will find markets and flea markets. Hackescher Markt is about 10 minutes away by S-Bahn. Exceptional businesses, cafes and restaurants further enhance the area. Other Berlin hot spots, such as East Side Gallery and the techno temple of Berghain are also not far away. Doctor’s surgeries, schools, and nursery schools are just around the corner. Public transport connections are excellent: the U-Bahn, S-Bahn, tram, buses and Ostbahnhof railway station can all be reached in no time.
