Condominiums with Great Floor Plans in the Trendy District of Neukölln
This apartment building on the corner of Silbersteinstrasse and Hertastrasse was built in 1930 and most recently refurbished in 2014 – with windows overhauled and the façade repainted. Today, the building's bright colours radiate a warm atmosphere. The welcoming touch continues indoors. Spread across five storeys, the flats have great floor-plans, and range from one to four bedrooms. Their pragmatic layout ensures optimal use of the residential floor area, which is anywhere between 49 and 87 square metres. Moreover, each flat has its own basement storage cubicle to keep the clutter out of the apartments.
Most units come with a balcony, which is particularly nice to have in the summertime. The balconies face either a quiet section of street or the lushly landscaped courtyard. The yard with its trees is a great place for residents to spend their spare time, chat with the neighbours and let their children play in a protected environment. In the wintertime, home amenities include a gas-fired heating unit in each flat for cosy, affordable warmth. Most of the handsome bathrooms are equipped with tubs and have a pragmatic layout.
The neighbourhood infrastructure is superb. You will find convenience stores right outside the door, while doctors' offices and pharmacies are in the immediate vicinity, and all sorts of bars, cafés and restaurant just one block down the street. Silbersteinstrasse is located in the trendy district of Neukölln. This is a bohemian part of Berlin with a rich cultural life, from theatre to dance, and from readings to art shows, and all of it somewhere near you.
Just as close are green areas for outdoor fun. Tempelhofer Feld, probably the largest green area you will ever see inside a major city, lies within walking distance. Other leafy sanctuaries in the area include the green riverbank, Treptower Park and Plänterwald, and the parklands of Volkspark Hasenheide farther north.
If you tire of it all or need to leave your district for some other reason, public transport links will swiftly take you anywhere in the city via the nearby “Hermannstrasse” rapid transit and underground station. It is served by the circle line and other rapid transit lines, including those to Schönefeld Airport. It is also the terminal of the U8 underground line with service to the “Alexanderplatz” regional and long-distance railway station, and “Gesundbrunnen” regional railway station beyond. Several bus stops in the neighbourhood provide additional public transport links in all directions.
In short, Silbersteinstrasse is a great place to live – in the heart of the metropolis, but with greenery close at hand, and all the amenities of urban living. Buying a condominium in Neukölln is therefore a sound buy-to-let investment, not least because the borough is so popular that you will always find a tenant. It is better yet for owner-occupiers who love the area – and the steady appreciation that comes with the rising demand for housing.
