Palais Varnhagen - the Bohème returns to Mitte. No other building like this wonderful, designed by the British architect David Chipperfield city palace in a prime location of Berlin Mitte, just a few meters from the Gendarmenmarkt, leaves the typical Berlin salon culture again.
Salon living developed in many European cities at the beginning of the 19th century. In the stately premises of many bourgeois dwellings, intellectuals, artists and industrialists met to exchange views. One of the most dazzling figures in Berlin at that time was the eponym of the Palais Varnhagen - Rahel Varnhagen. She invited to her "Literary Salon" in the French street 20 until about 1927 and was host to many famous personalities such as Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia, Heinrich Heine, the family Mendelssohn, Wilhelm von Humboldt and August Wilhelm Schlegel. More than 90 years later, the Palais Varnhagen in this historic location with its generous salon apartments offers the perfect stage to return to the salon life of the past.
The approximately 177sqm large apartment is located on the 5th floor of the rear building in the Palais Varnhagen. The recessed location overlooking the landscaped courtyard and the high garden in the 1st floor of the front building and the south / south-west orientation allow the premises to benefit from the best sunshine. The very generously dimensioned glass sliding windows can be operated very comfortably and offer the best daylight conditions as well as direct access to the small loggia.
The approximately 80sqm large living room with an open kitchen is the heart of the apartment. The fitted kitchen offers plenty of space and is fully equipped. The master bedroom with a bath en-suite and a walk-in dressing room is located in the back of the apartment. A large window gives the view to a small, quiet courtyard. This backward location provides peace and privacy. The second bedroom is right next to the living area and has a fully fitted shower room and walk-in dressing room. From the ground floor or the underground car park you can access the apartment directly via the lift. A parking space in the underground car park belongs to the apartment.
The choice of materials in the apartment can be described with high-quality, elegant and timeless. Classic panel parquet with border friezes and bright travertine Natural stone, combined with color-coordinated mosaic tiles, characterize the materiality of the apartment. Underfloor heating, solar control glazing, video intercom and a concierge service complete the high quality amenities.
