Property DetailsThe penthouse occupies approximately 220 m² of the top floor of this seven-storey apartment building on Frankfurter Allee. The existing loft space has been remodelled and expanded, creating a unique living space above the rooftops of Berlin. The facade's original features, together with the existing roof structure, have been skilfully integrated into the newly formed living space, lending this penthouse a matchless charm.The 56 m² living room and open-plan kitchen form the centerpiece of the penthouse's living area. Expansive windows ensure an abundance of natural light and, in combination with the three-meter high ceilings, accentuate the open and spacious character of the apartment. Throughout the penthouse, a wealth of detailed touches echo this lavish building's architectural details, creating a peerless level of home comfort. Combining the two original roof structures means that the apartment now boasts two separate entrances, both equipped with comfortable new lifts.In addition to the generously proportioned living quarters and their adjoining study, this exciting penthouse also features a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, and two additional bedrooms with a separate bathroom. The absolute highlight of this penthouse are its two spectacular terraces, directly accessible from almost every room. The near 107 m² south-facing terrace offers an irresistible invitation to wile away the hours relaxing outdoors and provides fantastic views of iconic Berlin landmarks, including the TV Tower at Alexanderplatz and Frankfurter Tor.The two magnificent towers at Frankfurter Tor are visible from far and wide and have become true landmarks of Berlin's urban skyline. This is Frankfurter Allee, once East Germany's grand boulevard and the backdrop to communist parades, the Allee stretches out to the west of Frankfurter Tor and is the impressive setting for this exclusive penthouse. This is an historic address, shortlisted as a potential UNESCO world cultural heritage site: Frankfurter Allee. Like Karl-Marx-Allee, this noble boulevard is lined with what are affectionately known as “gingerbread buildings”. Built in the 1950s, these apartment complexes emerged from the architectural traditions of socialist classicism and have since been granted heritage protection status. “Block G”, known among locals as one of “Stalin's buildings”, was originally designed by the architect Hanns Hopp, who adopted elements of the Berliner Classicism typified by Karl-Friedrich Schinkel. Irrespective of these earlier influences, the politics of the age dictated that the architecture conforms with Stalinist monumentalism, as was true for all of the buildings along what was once called “Stalinallee”. This prestigious boulevard was ultimately designed by six different architects: Prof. Hermann Henselmann, Egon Hartmann, Richard Paulick, Kurt W. Leucht, Hanns Hopp and Karl Souradny. Friedrichshain is one of Berlin's most vibrant quarters. Its “gingerbread buildings” are popular among the creative class and are home to a number of major international artists and the showrooms of influential photography galleries. Friedrichshain gains much of its charm from being a well-established and authentic district. Boxhagener Platz typifies this, offering a wide range of restaurants and cafés, along with organic supermarkets, post offices, flower shops, bakeries, antique stores, a weekly farmers' market, small cobblers, dry-cleaning, and toy stores – authentic neighbourhood life and everything today's lifestyles demand. The district also has a number of large shopping centers, and Alexanderplatz is no more than a few minutes away. The penthouse on Frankfurter Tor is ideally situated to provide ready access to Berlin's public transportation system, with nearby stations for the U5 subway line and M10
