The top floor apartment is located in Friedrichshain at Boxhagener Straße 112, in an old building that dates back to 1930 and was extensively renovated in 2006. The 80 m² apartment currently has a bedroom (around 16 m²) and a very large living / dining / kitchen area (approx. 50 m²) plus a terrace. A large daylight bathroom (approx. 10 m²) can be entered from the bedroom and the hallway. The apartment could also be turned into a 3-room apartment with very little effort by building a wall in the living / dining and kitchen area. See alternative floor plan.
The impression of a loft is created by room heights of around 2.85 m, floor-to-ceiling window elements that extend over the entire length of the living / dining / kitchen area, and parquet flooring, known from industrial buildings.
With two double doors, the interior living space can be opened up to the terrace and expanded so that outside and inside can easily connect and you can enjoy the view of the Alex radio tower all year round. The room-high window elements can also be found in the bedroom and bathroom, so that the rooms are also characterized by a lot of light.
A restrained design concept was used for the interior design. White, smoothly plastered walls in all rooms, plus white tiled mirrors in the kitchen, white lacquered doors and window elements contrast with the parquet made of solid, grained tropical wood. These common design features in colors and materials made it possible to achieve a uniform overall impression, which offers a suitable framework for different furnishing styles. Whether functional or new with trendy colors, it provides the right background for everything.
Of course, the technology is also state-of-the-art. The heating, bathrooms and kitchen were completely renewed in 2006. The design concept here, too, has reduced persistence in white and various shades of gray, instead of fast-moving taste trends.
The bathroom has a bathtub with an integrated rain shower. Washer, dryer and a built-in closet can also be found here.
Light, light, light! Perfect condition, restrained ambience, tastefully selected furnishings and ready to move into. Perfect for everyone who enjoys views over the Berlin rooftops and rooms with a loft character.
The building shows the typical features of historicist architecture from the turn-of-the-century to 1900, although the official date of construction is 1930. High doors, partly glazed at the entrance, and on the apartment doors with rich decorations on the door jambs, tiles decorated with Art Nouveau ornaments (original) in the entire parapet area of the entrance zone, stairs covered with wood and turned balusters capture the creative drive of this era. Through detailed restoration with tastefully selected colors, you can experience and enjoy the old charm of the building.
A sense of individuality is created, which so pleasantly stands out from the uniformity and monotony of many post-war buildings. The feeling of comfort and home arises here, because you can recognize and experience your personal space.
The avenue trees and the lush green inner courtyard with its tall trees also contribute to this feeling of comfort. An oasis in the middle of Friedrichshain.
Boxhagener Strasse and the lovingly nicknamed ‘Boxi’ are among the most famous streets and squares in Berlin. On the weekend you can not only find small, beautiful bargains and treasures here at the flea market, but also eat, go for a walk, shop or go out during the week. You will find the presumably most delicious poached eggs at Silo. The ones who like it more classic can go to Neumanns for a farmer's breakfast. Over the past years F'hain has blossomed into a vegan’s paradise, so that you will find restaurants around Boxi such as 1990 Vegan Living or Ramen x Ramen.
When strolling through the streets, you can experience how culturally diverse the neighbourhood is. This is where the Spanish neighbor meets the Swedish café owner, colorful posters and graffiti decorate the houses where families, original Berliners, punks and hippies live peacefully amongst each other.
If you decide to leave the neighbourhood, just take the tram from Grünberger Strasse / Warschauer Strasse (4 minutes walk) or the subway from Frankfurter Tor (also 4 minutes walk).
