This perfectly renovated, spacious old-style apartment with a Scandinavian touch has a very well-structured floor plan with a centrally located, wide corridor, from which all rooms are branching off.
The dining room and the living room are facing towards Novalisstrasse and thanks to the high location in the front building and the west exposure both rooms get lots of sun and light throughout the day. The two rooms are connected by a double-wing door. The dining room also has a balcony and the living room has a great bay window, which opens up an exciting view of Novalisstrasse all the way to Torstrasse.
All essential elements that make old buildings so popular have been skillfully preserved and lovingly restored. Ceiling heights of 3.20 m, stucco, original single and double wing wooden doors with matching historic brass handles, white oiled wooden floorboards and herringbone parquet are some of the highlights.
Towards the open-designed courtyard and garden area the timeless, minimalist living-kitchen is situated. It offers a striking contrast to the otherwise bright interior thanks to its black and white play of colors. It is very well equipped and has a dishwasher as well as a gas hob.
Even the designer bathroom, which as well as the kitchen is kept entirely in black and white, contrasts beautifully with the old building details of the apartment. Minimalism in function and form enter into a convincing symbiosis here. Faucets by Hans Grohe and ceramics from Kaldewei underline the high-quality character.
In this old apartment you can impressively experience the interplay of old and new. It offers the outstanding ambience for sophisticated, modern design and thus valuable pieces such as the Wire Chair by Charles & Ray Eames (Vitra), a cantilever chair by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (Thonet), String shelves and the sofa Freeform with ottoman of the designer Isamu Noguchi (Vitra) can be purchased optionally. A complete inventory list is available on request.
Thus, you get the chance to experience the charm of an old building and simultaneously timelessly elegant design, in which you will immediately feel at home.
In addition, there is a basement storage where you can put additional things. Also, the apartment is heated by a gas heating.
The apartment is located on the 3rd floor of the front building, which was entirely renovated in 2003 and 2018. The renovation is characterized by a minimalist design concept, which is based on black and white and muted blue-gray tones, which were retained all the way into the interior of the apartment.
Thus, a tasteful, perfectly crafted property has been created, which also technically meets the latest standards. As soon as you enter the house you will experience cultivated elegance. The feel-good feeling is not only limited to your own home, but extends to the whole building, as well as the well-kept courtyard. It is both openly planned and bright and aligned to the southeast, as well as nicely laid out. Even the garbage cans are discreetly located in a small garden shed.
The apartment is located on Novalisstrasse and is therefore centrally located, but absolutely quiet. In just a few minutes you are in the middle of the Friedrichstrasse, the Museum Island, the government district or the lively Scheunenviertel. Culinary Torstrasse is the restaurant mile of Berlin. 3 Minutes sur Mer, DUDU, To The Bone or the world famous Soho House are all within walking distance. Culturally, Torstrasse and its parallel and side streets have everything you expect from a metropolis. Auguststrasse offers (almost) all galleries in Berlin gathering on one street, Linienstrasse mixes fashion (including Kaviar Gauche) with furniture (10119 DESIGN) and other highlights such as the Japanese bakery kame.
If you are in the mood for some greenery, just take a right when you leave the front door and you will reach a little park with a paddling pool or if you take some more steps you will reach the sophisticated, landscaped park at the Berlin Wall Memorial.
Also in terms of transport one is optimally connected on Novalisstrasse. Subway, tram and bus all depart from Oranienburger Tor (a 2 minute walk) and the S-Bahn Friedrichstrasse can be reached within 6 minutes. You can reach Tegel airport in approximately 25 minutes and the city highway can be reached within 15 car minutes.
