Lovely, quiet 2 room flat, great light, excellent location near Volkspark Friedrichshain

2 room apartment for rent on the boundary between Friedrichshain and Prenzlauerberg for a minimum of 10 months available from 17 Aug 2019, with flexible start dates up to and including early September 2019. We are looking for someone for as much as possible of the 2019-20 academic year. Suitable for a non-smoking single person or couple. No pets please. Ideal for an academic/s on sabbatical, or a post-doc.
The apartment is an altbau with high ceilings, large windows and shiny wooden floors (67m^2 in total). Our family has used it for extended periods while I am researching. It is on the 3rd floor, without a lift.
The flat is brilliantly located: 6 min walk from a major tram intersection, and 6 min walk in a different direction from Landsberger Allee S-Bahn Station on the Ringbahn, and with a direct train connection to Schönefeld airport. Tram M5 or M6 will get you to Alexanderplatz in 8 min, with excellent access to the Humboldt, Staatsbibliothek Ost etc. 8 min on the tram M10 and you are in the heart of Prenzlauerberg.
The flat is in a pleasant, well-maintained back building overlooking trees. There is excellent shopping 10 min walk away near Storkowerstrasse S-Bahn (wonderful supermarket, DIY stores, the largest bicycle shop in Berlin…). Ikea is a 15 min tram ride away. The fabulous Olympic swimming pool Europasportpark is just 5min walk; there are other sporting facilities by Volkspark Friedrichshain (5 min in the other direction). The Volkspark itself is large and beautiful, and there are many other green spaces near the flat. There is a bakery, bioladen, with cafes, restaurants, post office, pharmacy and other facilities within a minute’s walk. The flat is within easy walking distance of a major hospital and health centre, and there is a dentist in the next-door building.
The large and bright living room has a dining table with 2 benches that seats 8 people. There is a sitting area, with large and comfortable sofa, armchair, coffee table. We have wifi but no TV.
The small kitchen is light and well equipped with dishwasher, breakfast table for two, and freestanding worktop/ dresser in addition to fridge, hob, oven, fitted cupboards etc.
The large bedroom has a double bed, a single trundle bed with a pull out bed underneath. All the mattresses are excellent quality orthopaedic grade. You can store bedding, sheets, towels etc in the capacious drawers under the double bed. There is also a large, freestanding chest of drawers and a small desk in the bedroom, with a massive wardrobe in the spacious hallway.
The bathroom is small and serviceable, with a toilet, bathtub, basin and washing machine. There is no shower.
