lovely 5 bedroom family home, Berlin Zehlendorf, close to JFK School, Free University

This is a beautifully renovated, spacious, pre-war, semi attached family house on 4 levels (incl. cellar and converted roof) with a large garden (including play area with a swing & climbing frame).

The house is in South West Berlin (Zehlendorf), literally around the corner from JFK School. It's a quiet, residential neighbourhood with lots of trees and parks (Laehrpark is at the end of our street). The house features 2 connecting living rooms, 1 kitchen, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a large cellar.

The house was built in the 1920s (fully renovated in 2006 & 2018) and has many original architectural features.

Ground floor: entrance (with door to cellar), wardrobe area with staircase, doors to kitchen, guest toilet (with shower), dining room and living room.

First floor: one large double bedroom with large sunny balcony facing the garden, a second smaller double bedroom (currently with a single bed), and a small single bedroom, plus a bathroom (with modern shower).

Second (top) floor: a very large Loft room which can be used as a large bedroom or play/studyroom and which also includes an attic. There is also a small room (used as another study) and a bathroom (with bathtub).

The entire house has been painted in 2018 with ecological (allergy friendly) paint and only contains wooden floors and original tiles and terrazzo. The mattresses are eco-friendly latex. We are non smokers and look for tenants who are non-smokers.

Garden: large terrace, large mature garden with old trees, strawberries, apple tree and with a play area in the back (swing and climbing frame).

Location: It's virtually around the corner from the US/German J.F.K. school (one of the top Engl/German schools in town). It's also close to various private English/international schools (BBIS, BIS/Kant, Phorms). The house is also very close to Free University (5 min by car, 15 min by bike or bus). Other universities such as Humboldt, TU, WZB or Univ Potsdam are not far by public transport (S-Bahn Zehlendorf) and there is a bus stop at the corner from the house which brings you to the S Bahn and downtown to Kurfürsten Damm (X10 and 285).

Excellent daily shopping facilities in Zehlendorf village (walking/biking distance) and Steglitz. Zehlendorf is a prime location in the south west part of Berlin, in particular for families and for people enjoying the proximity to parks, lakes and forests (e.g. Schlachtensee - which you can reach easily by bike or S Bahn).
