Berlin-Neukölln Apartment on Böhmischer Platz: June 15 (one-year rental)

The fully-furnished 96-square-meter apartment is a 19th century 3-room “Altbau” with high ceilings, wood floors and balcony overlooking Böhmischer (“Bohemian”) Platz.

It's unique feature is the location: directly overlooking a sunny, car-free square in the heart of old Rixdorf, a community founded in 1737 by Bohemian refugees, and which remains in tact with tiny cobbled lanes and half-timbered barns.

The apartment is available for one year (and perhaps longer). Excellent for singles or couples.

The apartment was renovated 5 years ago and is furnished with a mix of contemporary design and several antique pieces.

The large kitchen is equipped with dishwasher, 4-person breakfast table, a 2-person sitting bench, full-size fridge and pantry, 5-burner stove top, oven and a washing machine.

The spacious bedroom has a queen-size bed and balcony. Bedding, sheets and towels are all provided.

The living room has a dining table that seats 8 people. There is a sitting area with a large L-shaped couch, armchair, coffee table. We have a Sonos-connected stereo with speakers in all rooms, plus WiFi but no TV.

In the study there is a couch (with pull-out bed) and table for work.

The bathroom's main feature is an oversized floor-level shower with fixed rainwater shower head and hand-spray attachment. The sink and wall-hung toilet are new, as is the heated towel rack.

One block over is the larger Richard Platz along with multiple restaurants and stores on Karl Marx Strasse and Sonnenalle. Both metro (S41 / U7) and bus (M41) service are within 5 minutes walking distance and offer quick access to the adjacent Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg neighborhoods, as well as a direct train connection to Schönefeld airport.

Personal belongings have been moved into basement storage and into a separate closet space.

The €1400 rent includes utilities (water, heat, electricity, housing allowance charges and internet). The rental price reflects current rental caps mandated by Covid regulation.

We request one month's rent €1400 as a refundable security deposit.

We also insist on a twice monthly cleaning service (€80 / month).

Apartment measurements: living-room (31m), bedroom (19m), study (15m), kitchen (18m), bathroom (10m), balcony (3m).

About Me
I'm a freelance journalist, Columbia Journalism School graduate ('03) and recently coming off a Robert Bosch Stiftung cross-border reporting grant. I'm living in Berlin since 2007 and the owner of an apartment in the Neukölln neighborhood since 2014. I'm originally from the New York City area, while my wife, Agata, grew up in Poland. I'm now considering a move towards a masters or PhD in sustainability studies. I'm in transition, having ended a one-year contract and returned to full-time freelancing on topics of climate, sustainable production and green energy.
