Lovely, spacious, "Altbau" apartment for 1-2 year rental in Berlin, Germany

Beautiful apartment ready to rent, for a minimum of 1 and maximum of 2 years, in Berlin’s Friedenau/Schoeneberg district. The apartment is 140m2 (1500 square feet) and has 5.5 rooms, including 3-4 bedrooms, a large living room, spacious open kitchen, 2 bathrooms (one with shower, one with shower/tub), two balconies and a pantry.

Three rooms face a side street and two have windows to the courtyard. One advantage of the flat is that the largest bedroom and an adjacent bathroom are together at the back of the flat, creating a suite.

The apartment is Altbau (the house dates to about 1905) but was fully renovated in 2005 and has been kept in very good condition. All the windows to the street side are original double box windows with brass hardware. There is lovely ceiling stucco in most of the rooms, and all but one room have original wooden floorboards, including parquet in the three largest rooms. The kitchen is stylish with white cabinets and granite counter tops. This is just the kind of “old style” charming, high-ceiling (more than 3m) apartment Berlin is known for, but it is modern and comfortable at the same time.

The apartment is ideal for families or for a couple that need home offices/expect lots of guests! It is in a quiet residential neighborhood with friendly neighbors. The apartment is on the first floor, half a landing up, Hochparterre. It gets good light, in part due to the fact that there is a playground just across the street. A variety of supermarkets, drugstores, other shopping and restaurants are a ten-minute walk or short bike ride away (Schlossstr. In Steglitz or Akazieniez in Schoeneberg). The underground U9 and S-Bahn/Ringbahn are within 5 minutes’ walk. There are also buses that connect all over the city.

The location works well for workplaces or schools in the city or outside, as the Stadtautobahn is just minutes away. It is 10-15 minutes from the Free University and Technical University and about 25 minutes from the Humboldt University. The location is also suitable for the Nelson Mandela School, Berlin International School and John F. Kennedy School.

The apartment can be rented as is, with minimal furniture (it has a built-in kitchen, with granite counters and barstools, plus basic lighting, some shelving, mirrors and medicine cabinets, a highbed, and a large clothes cupboard) at a cost of EU 1575 per month (plus heating, water and electricity, about EU 400 per month depending on your usage), or it can be more fully furnished and rented at a higher price.
