Exceptional Penthouse in Berlin
By Magaly • Jun 5, 2015
The apartment has stunning views over the city, especially of the nearby East Side Gallery and O2 World.
The home is currently for sale for $1.76 million.
“Situated on the banks of the River Spree in the very heart of Berlin, this unique penthouse sits majestically at the top of a former factory building constructed in 1889. It is located at the edge of the trendy Kreuzberg neighborhood and lies right on the waterfront with a view of the Spree, not far from Oberbaum Bridge and the soon-to-be-built Brommy Bridge. With the intersection of cultural avant-garde, vibrant nightlife and the undisputed quality of life in a city containing lots of green spaces and water, Berlin is a fascinating place. However, it also has another decisive trump card up its sleeve as it still has downtown space available for growth – a situation unimaginable in other major cities. This space is available due to the historical route of the Berlin Wall, and the areas along the River Spree rank among the absolute prime locations. Trendy spots such as the Markthalle Neun market and a variety of restaurants, bars and clubs are within walking distance, and the opposite bank of the Spree containing the East Side Gallery, O2 World and the forthcoming shopping and entertainment center are also within easy reach. The area across the river is also being developed into a new modern city quarter. Mercedes Benz is investing heavily in a new and more convenient infrastructure with new offices, shopping, a cinema and entertainment complex. The new square just across the river of the penthouse might become the new home of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Berlin’s historic center is just a few minutes’ drive away or can be reached on the subway (U-Bahn – Schlesisches Tor station) and, thanks to the good transport links, Berlin’s Schönefeld airport is also quick and easy to get to.
An absolute gem in the Kreuzberg neighborhood, a penthouse that can easily be described using only superlatives, one of a kind in Berlin’s real estate market – it’s difficult to stop raving about this approx. 160m² (1,722ft²) penthouse, which is located right on the banks of the River Spree. It offers countless sophisticated technology features and top-quality designer fittings/details, with a slick interior designed by Angelika Richter in 2008. Alongside a generous living area with an open-plan kitchen, this elegant penthouse offers two bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom, with the master bathroom containing both a bathtub and a shower. All the rooms have been fitted with high-end built-in furniture, thereby providing plenty of storage space, and the impressive, high-quality joinery work shows a love of detail illustrated by features including hidden handles and a variety of backlit units. Only top-quality materials like Travertin, Bisazza tiles and walnut have been used throughout the entire penthouse. It also has a Gira Revox Multiroom System enabling all the electrical installations to be controlled, including the lighting, heating, security camera, blinds and Hi-Fi system, and invisible speakers have been mounted in the ceiling throughout the entire penthouse too. The terrace also has external speakers that have been integrated into the planting on the terrace.
The high-end kitchen – which features a Brazilian slate worktop – blends seamlessly into the overall design and is equipped with Miele appliances and a Gaggenau wine cooler. Other features include underfloor heating, air conditioning and a watering system on the terrace.”
