Sunny and spacious 3 bedroom penthouse in south Berlin with 2 roof terraces and balcony

Our family home is a modern, bright and spacious maisonette apartment with 3 bedrooms and a spacious office at the top of a typical Berliner "Gartenhaus" (a detached apartment house set back from the street behind another house). An elevator takes you to a separate entrance. All bedrooms have floor-to-ceiling windows looking east onto walnut and birch trees. On the lower level, there is a large, glazed open-plan kitchen and living area with a cosy dining corner and a balcony where we grow herbs and flowers. Two very quiet bedrooms (one double, one children’s bedroom with two beds, one of which can be made into a cot) have ceiling lights that so you can lie in bed and look into the sky. In autumn, we see a red squirrel racing across the roof to get to the walnut tree, and in the summer, we can see the birds sitting in the trees from our beds. There is a bathroom with daylight, a big corner bathtub and a powerful thermostat shower. The apartment has underfloor heating throughout, assisted by solar panels on the roof. An oak spiral staircase leads past a small conservatory ideal for enjoying a cup of coffee, to the upper floor with a very light open-plan study looking out onto the large (25 square meters) terrace, a double bedroom/guest room and a second bathroom with daylight. The big room has a sofa and windows all around. Two doors lead onto the sheltered and private terrace which offers both sun and shade during the Berlin summer. A second deck with views across the whole of Berlin can be accessed from here.
The Campus of the Freie Universität is a 15 minute bicycle ride away, or a short journey by bus. It is a 7 minute walk to one of two nearby train stations with trains taking 15 minutes to Potsdamer Platz and the centre. The closest underground station is a 10 minute walk; several busses leave around the corner. Nearby Schloßstraße has a lot of shops, restaurants, cafés and several malls. There are at least 4 supermarkets within easy walking distance, and several children’s playgrounds around the corner. Nearby parks include the “Insulaner” (with open air swimming pool in summer) and the Botanical gardens.

About Me
I love art and church architecture and have always travelled a lot in order to visit galleries and churches, mainly in Europe. During my studies, I lived and worked in Britain and Italy. Berlin, my current home, is one of my favourite cities - especially in the summer! With its four universities, it also offers plenty to do academically.
