This classic luxury property is currently separated into two apartments in the 5th and 6th floor (penthouse) of a new building (2003) in the popular Mendelssohnstrasse - thus located directly in one of the best Westend locations. Currently, these are still two separate flats with an identical floor plan, but by a simple construction effort (spiral staircase for example) it can ideally converted into a duplex penthouse. The corresponding planning and concept already exists and is just waiting to be implemented individually.
The south-east-west orientation floods the entire property all day and year with plenty of sunlight, creating a particularly bright and transparent living. On the French balconies (both floors) you will find high-quality Ipe (Brazilian walnut) wooden floorboards. A special highlight is the spacious, approximately 70 m² large roof terrace (also made of Ipe wood flooring), which can be used from spring till autumn as a second living area. It offers many chill-out and reading corners, a large dining area, a sound system and an extendable awning for the whole area. The unobstructed skyline view of the Main metropolis creates an enormous expanse, urbanity and a feeling of "little Manhattan“. From here you can enjoy the sunset and the great views over the rooftops of Frankfurt along with an iced drink. There is another, very large balcony for even more "on top of the world“ feeling on the 6th floor. Olive trees and numerous other plants and trees in huge grey planters frame the outer areas of both floors and thus create a special privacy without obscuring the imposing view.
All rooms are modern and high quality equipped. The walls were elaborately finely trowelled (Q4 quality) and decorated in a homogeneous color mixture reaching from soft gray and sand tones to off-white. All floor coverings are made of fine sand-colored natural Jura stone as well as hand-oiled parquet. Everywhere large-scale, floor-to-ceiling wooden windows with double glazing have been installed, which have electric shutters throughout. Both day-to-day baths and guest toilets have also been classically decorated in white and oiled oak wood and, facing the east side and offering a unique view of the Opera Tower. The fitted kitchens in the two floors are puristic and have been modernized in 2019. On the fifth floor, a new Gaggenau steam oven, a fully integrated Gaggenau dishwasher, AEG refrigerator (second refrigerator), AEG induction cooker, Novy cooker hood, Quooker cooking faucet, Dornbracht kitchen shower faucet were installed. On the sixth floor, a Miele steam oven has additionally been integrated.
The entire property is equipped with underfloor heating and is complemented by a spacious, ventilated basement, video intercom with internet interface and a three car underground parking spaces. The staircase is designed with Portuguese marble and has a glass elevator. In addition, the housing unit has a high maintenance reserve.
The high-quality furnishing of the entire property is as new and can be taken over if needed.
The elegant residential building with stone facade and a discreet, timeless architecture was built in 2003 and consists of six floors and only ten units. It has a full basement and shares a spacious underground car park with the neighboring house. Generous window fronts as well as sweeping balconies and terraces give the object its special appealing look.
