This 155-sqm, 4-room apartment is a true rarity, accommodated in the exquisitely converted loft space of a period building on Banschstrasse in the heart of Berlin's trendy Samariter neighborhood. Mature, tall trees line the street, while the central promenade and views of the gothic Samariter Church create the ambience of a magnificent boulevard in the heart of this tranquil and family-friendly neighborhood in vibrant Friedrichshain.
The building's wonderful design features begin in the main entrance hall, which boasts elaborately decorated tiles, an exclusive mural and stunning Art Nouveau ornamentation, all of which combine to create a sense of home in comfortable surroundings. The penthouse unit is quickly and easily reached via the glass elevator, which leads to a world of exposed brickwork, abundant windows and the type of open-plan interior design that typifies loft-style living. The fitted SieMatic kitchen, two sun-kissed balconies, and oiled oak floor boards are emblematic of this sublime apartment. You'll simply love the unit's two bathrooms, both of which are equipped with high-end ceramics from Catalano and floor-level showers. Then there's the master bathroom's stunning, free-standing bathtub from Badeloft, which is perfect for unwinding, relaxing and catching some magical me-time.

Young and hip with a touch of eastern charm for many years, these were among the words most frequently used to describe the district of Berlin-Friedrichshain. Over the last decade or so, Friedrichshain has enjoyed a major revamp and many of the charming, mid-nineteenth century buildings have been exquisitely restored. The district is now not only famous for its trend-setting night clubs, it is also home to a host of cutting-edge restaurants and boutiques. The Samariter neighborhood, also known locally as Nordkiez, is now a well-established and extremely attractive residential area. Formerly a designated redevelopment area (from 1993 to 2008), the neighborhood is the proud winner of the Federal Ministry of Transport's National Prize for Integrated Urban Development and Building Culture.
The area around the 19th-century Samariter Church, built in the typical brick gothic style of the region, is characterized by well-maintained and expertly restored apartment buildings, small shops, independent cafes and restaurants. Above all, families have flocked to this gorgeous neighborhood, which is a mere 3.5 kilometers from Berlin's iconic Alexanderplatz. There are a host of playgrounds in the immediate area, the most popular of which include Drachenland and the adventure playground at Forckenbeckplatz. Banschstrasse, which leads directly to Samariter Church, is the Samariter neighborhood's most beautiful promenade, lined with tall trees and stunning apartment buildings with Art Nouveau facades. There is also a wide central promenade that provides the perfect backdrop for a relaxing stroll as you savor the tranquility and alternative flair that can only be found in Friedrichshain.
