Bright roof top apt with huge balcony in the heart of Prenzlauer Berg

UPDATE September 2019: I am leaving this up for a bit longer just in case something changes but as of right now the apartment will likely not be available this year. I will update the listing if it changes. Thanks! --

This is a beautiful, fully furnished, sun-filled roof apartment with high ceilings and over 700sqf of indoor living space that works best for a single person or a couple.

There is a bright, huge, well equipped live-in kitchen with a huge dining table and eight chairs and lots of open space. It has new floors. Giant glass doors lead to the big south facing balcony with a perfect, unobstructed view of the Alexander tower from the comfy L-shaped couch.

The double bed in the back comfortably sleeps two people.

The small chamber that lies behind the bed makes for a perfect toddler/kid's room (we've rented to a couple with a preschooler for two years before). It is currently being used as a walk-in closet, although the space itself actually also has windows to the main room and a built-in closet (consisting of the entire space under the loft staircase) to store away all your clothes and clutter. (The picture below shows it furnished with an IKEA Lyksele futon and a colorful blanket.)

In addition, there is a nice-sized, fully secured sleep loft with another double mattress above the bathroom area. Alternatively, this area could easily be converted into a work space/office loft.

The bathroom is a full bathroom that includes a full-sized bathtub as well as a washer and dryer.

The apartment is located in the very heart of the highly desirable Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood on Marienburger Str., 5 minutes from Kollwitzplatz, 8 minutes from Volkspark Friedrichshain, and 10 minutes to Alexanderplatz by tram. Humboldt University is only a 10-15 min bike ride away, the TU Berlin about 30 min. The Strandbad at lake Weissensee is reachable by tram in 10 minutes. The local playgrounds and parks are great, as is the shopping and dining, the local schools are all very good, and several bilingual preschools and schools are within easy walking or biking distance.

Please note that this space used to rent for quite a bit more money but that I reduced the price a bit because the place now has some delayed maintenance issues that the previous renters indicated and that we will address more comprehensively when we return to Berlin this summer. We are talking about cosmetics, though: the countertop and the at least one of the vinyl fronts of the kitchen cabinets need replacing as do some of the inserts in the fridge. If you don't mind these minor blemishes then you will just be happy to get one of the best deals in town. And all that light flooding in will really help you survive those dreary winter months in Berlin!

Deike and her two wonderful children stayed at my house for a week in the summer. They were a dream to have in the house. I have been really lucky with the people from Sabbatical Homes I've had to stay, Deike and her family were exceptional. They were so respectful in every way and they left the house so beautiful upon leaving. I could not recommend them highly enough. Excellent S O' Connell 12/1/2013 5:17:00 AM
