It is a gem dating back to Imperial Germany, and an asset to Berlin as architectural landmark: Riehmers Hofgarten. At the time, Wilhelm Riehmer let his courage and visionary zeal as builder inspire him to bypass urban planning standards in favour of upscale liveability. Instead of a dense development of tenements grouped around tiny courtyards, he created a magnificent complex on a plot he owned in 1891/1892. With attention to detail and the diligence of a heritage curator, the splendid heritage site has now been largely restored. It positively beams with its regained historic glamour. The patrician façades shine with bright structures while the staircases are dominated by warm earthy colours. The entrance doors to houses and flats, windows and stair railings were overhauled true to their original design. Partially uncovered frescoes on the mezzanine levels illustrate the artful aesthetics of a bygone era. To meet sophisticated expectations, modern-day quality was seamlessly integrated. The lighting system as well as the bell and video intercom system complete the authentic design by adding upscale state-of-the-art technology. Water supply lines and waste water pipes were replaced, while heating and electrical installations were upgraded or replaced. The eleven entranceways are named after scions of the Hohenzollern dynasty. The entranceway with the stairway up to this first-floor tenant-occupied flat at Grossbeerenstrasse 56 F is called Friedrich. Extending over 79 square metres, this flat will enchant anyone who appreciates upgraded period buildings. Residents of this housing complex have the communal use of the lush courtyard garden whose groomed trails, picnic lawns, boule court and playground offer various options for hanging out and comparing notes. Other amenities include the roofed-over buggy and bicycle park, and access to the underground car park via the courtyard garden.
In global city rankings, Berlin has been among the top ten for years. Complex cultural events, an engaging way of life, and a unique history have earned the metropolis its global renown. It motivates millions of visitors every year to come to Berlin to see for themselves. Over the past decade, about 400,000 of them were so captivated by the city that they decided to stay for good. To be sure, a high level of liveability makes it easy to fall in love with Berlin. But the city has so much more to offer. As a science hub, Berlin offers skills and knowledge in just about any scientific field you can think of. Moreover, Germany’s capital of start-up businesses has developed an economic dynamic that attracts companies from inside and outside the country. Its location in the European heartland recommends it as place of business every bit as much as its ability to provide high-skilled graduates and its proximity to the start-up scene with its innovative potential for prospering businesses of tomorrow. In Kreuzberg, the impulsive energy of young generations is keenly felt and reflected in up-and-coming trends. Aside from this district’s centrality and legendary hipness, life here is defined by a highly productive cultural scene and by creative diversity. Especially the Bergmannstrasse has enormous appeal. Every store here is one of a kind—whether it sells wine, pastry or coffee, antique junk, designer artefacts or vintage goods by the pound, gourmet dog food, vegan takeaway food or famous sausages—while the space in between is dotted with cinemas, theatres and churches that occasionally double as concert halls. All of this embedded in a historic setting of streets that are testimony to the cultural heritage of the city. Viktoriapark, Gleisdreieck Park or the vast grasslands of the former Tempelhof airport grounds provide plenty of outdoor space for local recreation and leisure activities.
The building’s extensive redevelopment took account of heritage conservation and modern standards, restoring the complex to new splendour. Depending on your needs, you may refurbish your new home any way you want to, adding your personal style to these charming period rooms. The 2-bedroom flat welcomes you with the generous proportions that Berlin’s stately front buildings are famous for. This one lets you spread out over 79 square metres. Its two bedrooms and a bathroom branch off from the entryway. Large double doors on the left take you from the entryway into the spacious master bedroom of 28 square metres, which faces south. It is connected with the eat-in kitchen and overlooks the pretty courtyard garden. The loggia shares the same view, making it the perfect spot for having some quiet hours to yourself. The flat features all the elements that typify period buildings, like board floors, historic plaster mouldings on high ceilings, wooden doors and double-cased windows which were overhauled on the outside. Visitors are admitted via a modern bell and intercom system. The mail box system was also replaced in the course of the refurbishment. Moreover, a basement storage locker and an underground parking spot are assigned to the unit. This is a great opportunity to invest in a spacious, tenant-occupied flat, and to benefit long-term from the capital appreciation of the refurbished complex.
