Buying a Classy Condominium in Period Building in Kreuzberg
Welcome to Monumentenstrasse 19! The area between Viktoriapark and Gleisdreieck Park is one of the leafiest parts of Kreuzberg district. A one-minute walk from Monumentenstrasse will take you to the meadows and meandering trails of Viktoriapark. In the summertime, the murmur of the waterfall will inspire a holiday feeling. If you prefer a more vibrant environment, you should head for the charming Bergmannkiez neighbourhood nearby with its many cafés and varied stores.
Among the most compelling features of this classic stucco period building from 1910 are its intricate façade with its reliefs, orioles and wooden double-cased windows featuring transom and mullion grids. Another striking detail is the semi-circular window in the central pediment.
Entering the multi-unit dwelling, which typifies the period buildings Berlin is known for, you will be further impressed by the splendid stucco ornaments in the staircase. An arch with richly detailed plasterwork bridges the passage leading to the flight of stairs like a portal. Stunning coffered and painted ceilings and stylish ceiling lamps dominate the entire entrance area. The charm is enhanced by the stained-glass windows in the hallways, which capture the style of the originals.
Condominium with Vintage Charm in Kreuzberg
The five-storey building, which combines commercial and residential units, divides into a front, side and back building, grouped around an inner courtyard with old-growth trees that is split in two by the back building. The flats inside the apartment building have generously proportioned floor plans and range from 1 to 4 bedrooms and from around 43 to 127 square metres of residential floor area. The flats feature either tub- or shower-equipped bathrooms. Some of the flats are fitted both with tub and shower for extra comfort whereas others include an additional guest WC.
A number of flats also feature one or more balconies that are the perfect place for taking it easy during the warm summer months. Redevelopment and refurbishment works in 2019 will include the installation of additional balconies, which will be attached to the back building and side building. The ground-floor flats facing the quiet inner courtyards will get a small patio each. Most of the period flats still include original Belle Époque elements, which have been carefully preserved and restored. Eye-catching stucco ornaments grace the tall ceilings, large wooden double-cased windows admit plenty of light into the interior, and high-end parquetry or board flooring creates a warm and cosy ambience.
The house at Monumentenstrasse 19 is synonymous with living in a typical Berlin period building in the heart of the city while surrounded by green spaces and a vibrant neighbourhood.
