Attic Apartment in Berlin by Donatella Mustavic
The corner of Pariser Straße / Sächsische Straße, where this apartment building is located, directly borders the beautiful square ‘Ludwigkirchplatz’ – one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Berlin Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf. This popular meeting place for local residents, children and those enjoying a stroll, boasts numerous cafes, restaurants and exclusive shopping opportunities.
The square was originally called Straßburger Platz and was renamed in 1895, just a few months after the foundations of Saint Ludwig’s Catholic church were laid. From here, it’s just a short walk to Kurfürstendamm, with its many famous flagship stores such as, for instance, Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Apple, etc. and Olivaer Platz with its countless restaurants. The city expressway A100, which provides quick access to both Tegel airport and the new BER airport, is a mere 4km away. The subway stations Uhlandstraße and Spichernstraße are also close by.
This penthouse apartment, with an area of approx. 223m² (2400 ft²) and located within a lovingly renovated period apartment building at the corner of Pariser Straße / Sächsische Straße is something really special. The elevator provides direct access to the 6th floor, which has only two apartments. A foyer with access to a guest bathroom leads into the breathtaking and spacious living area, with an almost loft-style character, which is approx. 85m² (914 ft²) in size and features a modern, open-plan kitchen. The living area has a fireplace, ceiling heights of approximately 4 meters and direct access to a sheltered, west-facing balcony.
From the living area, a long hallway with skylights – the perfect space to hang your art – leads to the three bedrooms and the staircase leading up to the sunny rooftop terrace. The master bedroom boasts a small balcony area, as well as a walk-in closet and fully-fitted luxury bathroom with bath and shower. The two bedrooms to the rear of the apartment have access to a unique second bathroom. A utility room is located at the end of the long hallway.
The rooftop terrace, which is approx. 20m² (215 ft²) in size, provides fantastic 360° panorama views over the neighborhood surrounding Ludwigkirchplatz.
