An artificially created island in the heart of Berlin – that is Moabit. This traditional Berlin district is surrounded by canals and the River Spree, close to the famous zoo and the main station and only a stone’s throw from the Charlottenburg Palace. The particularly friendly atmosphere of the neighbourhood, together with its green spaces large and small and its outstanding central location make Moabit a very special place. Just round the corner is the Turmstraße with its colourful mixture of speciality eating places, bars and shops. The Ringbahn at the Westhafen is within easy reach, as is the public transport hub of the Turmstraße, served by several bus routes and the U9.
This ornate period house was built at the beginning of the 19th century and boasts many decorative features typical of the era. For example, there is some particularly magnificent stucco work in the entrance hall. The wreaths of flowers, blossoms, bows and curlicues never cease to amaze visitors and residents alike. Even the stairwell is a wonder to behold: the light floods in through big multi-pane windows with a segmental arch at the top. The red-and-beige patterned sisal runner with blue edging picks up the colours of the decorative work around the windows. The spindles of the dark wood banister rail are ornately turned with square sections and rosettes. The 2- to 5-bedroomed apartments on sale here are located in the main building and the side wings, with two units on each storey. The apartments vary in size between 63 m² and 200 m². The front doors to the apartments are the wood-panelled doors so often found in historic buildings, with an antique brass letter-box and spy hole. The interior doors are also panelled, with brass fittings and, in some cases, glazed panels. The high ceilings and large windows make the apartments very light. The timber-framed windows have been refurbished on the side facing the courtyard. All the apartments are heated by a district heating system.
