This grand old building was built in 1910 and was completely modernized in 2014. The size alone reflects upper-class living from back then. This continues inside, where authenticity, i.e. the preservation of the old, was a central concern, supplemented by stylistically adapted innovations and modern interpretations of the old.
On 184 m² there are 6 rooms (14 m² to 31 m²), 2 large en-suite bathrooms, guest toilet, kitchen, utility room, plus terrace with garden and a large basement (20 m²) directly under the apartment. The living and usable area amounts to more than 226 m².
In addition to the overall size, the room height (3.50 m) naturally plays a special role, a measure that stood for the degree of representation of an apartment and has become valid again today. The height, width and length dimensions have created beautiful room proportions that make old buildings so popular.
In the floor plan, a distinction was made between public and private areas; The living room, kitchen etc. are in the front area, while the bedrooms and bathrooms are in the rear area.
The two large front rooms are each illuminated by a very large, four-winged arched window, under which the radiator is hidden behind a wooden panel. A double-leaf, historical glass cassette door connects the two large rooms.
Walls and ceilings shine in a light sand tone, from which ceilings, door frames, door leaves and skirting boards stand out in light white. This elegant note is underlined by the restored stucco in the form of a cassette and each with a crystal chandelier. The reclaimed oak herringbone parquet shines like new and emphasizes the classy ambience. This design principle is continued in all rooms, including the kitchen and hallway, creating a harmonious overall picture.
The bathrooms have been specially designed; For example the free-standing, historical-classic bathtub shape with animal-like feet (with real gold leaf). Washbasins with marble covers also refer to the formal language used in historicism. Only the round shower with colored glass mosaic tiles by Bisazza is almost reminiscent of an oriental bathroom in size and shape. An oasis for showering and bathing fun, a daily feast for the eyes. The second bathroom also plays with nostalgia and modernity. Cement tiles with ornaments, glass mosaic tiles in different colors, both also by Bissazza, a walk-in, wide shower with handmade tiles and a washbasin that is historically absolutely authentic with a mirror, base cabinet and mixer.
The kitchen also offers various highlights. Art Nouveau tiles and chic, blackened Delft tiles form the back wall of the kitchen unit, into which a Scottish gas stove from Falcon has been integrated. The opposite kitchen counter is fresh with its white tiles. Here, too, an exciting mix of old and new.
Another highlight is the terrace with a pagoda tent plus a Japanese-inspired garden (special right of use). If you love the extraordinary, the luxurious, the historical combined with interpretations of the old, this is the place for you.
Other special features are the handmade Masurian library in the dining room, a wine cooler, ceramics from Villeroy & Boch and Catalano, fittings from Dornbracht, Gentry Home London & Grohe, electric shutters in all rooms, video intercom, large living cellar with entrance door and natural light through windows, white brick walls , indirect heating through heating pipes, screed floor with carpet and electricity / light / water / waste water - toilet installation possible, currently washing machine with dryer in separate utility room.
The 5-storey building built in 1910 in the style of neoclassicism fits harmoniously into the row of buildings. Its appearance is as imposing and powerful as that of the others.
The facade in delicate ocher with white contrasting windows and gray plinth plus entrance element, which has been preserved in its original form, offers the typical features of this architectural era. Balconies and bay windows, some with arches, but always with brick balustrades, symmetrically arranged, mark the center of the building. Large, high windows (arched, rectangular or with a bricked central bar) are regularly arranged and decorate the building with their variety of shapes and variations. Strong, horizontal friezes mark the floors. A strong eaves separates the mansard roof from the facade.
The base level deserves special attention, which has been given a greater height by means of a 5-step staircase. Formally supported by arched stucco on the windows as pilaster strips and with single or double columns placed in front of them. As a result, the balconies and bay windows above also move forward. The pillars were given Doric capitals in accordance with the historicist design principle.
All of this leads to an extremely representative entrance, which corresponded to the social status of its residents. The entrance with its wooden door with glass panes and the glazed skylight should radiate dignity and sublimity, and this impression continues inside the building. The entrance is extremely impressive in width, length and height. But you can also see the luxury in the details. Black, white and gray marble covers the entire floor. The stairs to the two lower apartments are also made of the same marble. The walls are clad with wooden panels, the cassette-like fields of which are set off in black lines. A cornice-like projection delimits the wooden panels at the top, where stucco ornamentation forms a transition to the richly decorated stucco ceiling.
Pure luxury, as such masterly craftsmanship is hard to come by today. Fortunately, this gem has been preserved and restored to its original, old splendor through loving restoration. The taste and architecture of the Wilhelminian era can be authentically experienced here. Really very special, almost unique - entrance, entrance and the building with its apartments.
The Westend, the connection between vibrant city life and Grunewald with its forests and lakes, is a stone's throw away. In the immediate vicinity there is local recreation with a beer garden by the shores of Lietzensee, or sophisticated restaurants and cafés such as the notorious Italian Piccolo Mondo with delicious saffron risotto and for the morning caffeine boost Giro d'Espresso, a small coffee house with pink walls and many special types of espresso.
The main train station can be reached in around 25 minutes and BER airport in around 38 minutes. In no time you can also be on the city motorway and are thus ideally connected in all directions.
