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 the urban planning standards of his day in favour of upscale liveability. Rather than sticking with the dense development of tenements grouped around tiny courtyards, the master builder in 1891/1892 used a plot he owned to create a magnificent ensemble elegantly embedded in a park-style garden. With close attention to detail and the diligence of a heritage curator, large parts of the splendid vintage building were restored. It positively beams now with its regained historic glamour. The patrician façades present themselves with bright structures whereas the staircases inside are dominated by warm earthy colours. The entrance doors to houses and flats, the windows and stair railings were overhauled in line with their original historic design. Partially uncovered frescoes on the mezzanine levels illustrate the artful aesthetics of the era when the house was built. 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 technology. Water supply lines and waste water pipes were replaced, while heating and electrical installations were either upgraded or replaced. A total of eleven entranceways named after scions of the Hohenzollern dynasty provide access to the various buildings of the baroque-revival complex. Thus, the entranceway at Grossbeerenstrasse 56 F, whose stairway will take you up to this tenant-occupied flat on the fourth floor, is called Friedrich. Consisting of three bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom and balcony on a footprint of 129 square metres, it is a charming buy-to-let investment that will benefit from the high value of the refurbished heritage building.
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.
This tenant-occupied 3-bedroom flat, which is located in the house at Grossbeerenstrasse 56 F, presents a lucrative buy-to-let investment opportunity at the refurbished Riehmers Hofgarten residential complex. A staircase takes you up to the fourth floor. The entryway provides access to the master bedroom, the living room as well as to the kitchen and bathroom. The spacious master bedroom of 31 square metres is located right behind the front door. The living room next to it, accessible either through a double door from the entryway or from the bedroom, arguably representing the centrepiece of the flat with its footprint of 40 square metres. The living room in turn opens onto a third bedroom of 24 square metres that comes with a balcony overlooking the courtyard. In the western part of the flat, you will find the kitchen of 13 square metres and a tub-equipped bathroom of 6 square metres bright with daylight from a window. The flat also comes with a basement storage locker. The flat features all the elements that typify period buildings, such as wooden board floors and historic plaster ornaments on high ceilings, as well as wooden doors and double-cased windows which were overhauled on the outside. A basement store room is also assigned to the unit. Visitors are admitted via a modern bell and intercom system. The mail box system was also replaced in the course of the refurbishment. Beneath the courtyard lies an underground car park. Roofed-over parking spaces for buggies and bicycles are available as well. This is a great opportunity to invest in a generously proportioned flat, and to benefit long-term from the capital appreciation of the refurbished complex.
