Living in Potsdam on the River Havel means to live an urban life in a green setting. A well-developed infrastructure and the proximity of Berlin make the charming and cultivated state capital of Brandenburg attractive not just for locals. Many people wish to move here and are looking for flats in one of the most coveted cities of the Berlin-Brandenburg metro region. Rich in cultural heritage and surrounded by an enchanted aquatic landscape, the former capital city of Prussia in direct proximity to Berlin offers a high level of liveability. Potsdam is renowned for its parklands, for Sanssouci Palace or the Babelsberg Palace with its grounds and the outdoor swimming pool next to the Havel.
Buyers interested in a condominium in Potsdam may find what they are looking for in the northern part of Potsdam’s inner city. Right in the heart of the city and within easy walking distance of its historic centre and the lakefront of Heiliger See lies the listed residential building at Hans-Thoma-Strasse 5-6. The two exceptional Belle Époque buildings, raised in 1909 and 1910, will instantly captivate you with their portals, the preserved original façade ornaments and their tower structures. The two houses with their bright flats therefore have their place in Potsdam’s inner city as a worthy addition to its harmonious streetscape.
Refurbished Classy Condominiums in the Inner City of Potsdam
In 2018, the two multi-unit dwellings were renovated in compliance with the listed building consent and with a lavish attention to detail. Most of the flats were modernised extensively to satisfy a high standard. With their two side buildings and back building, both houses are grouped around a shared inner courtyard and harmoniously blend into the classy blocks of the Nördliche Innenstadt sub-district as a standalone complex. Condominiums in the historic centre of Potsdam are coveted because of their location within easy reach of well-known parks, of the River Havel and of districts such as Babelsberg with its film studios.
Potsdam radiates elegance and a languid ambience both downtown and in its surrounding areas. The same kind of elegance plus the charm of an Art Nouveau edifice define the stylish apartments. Many elements typical of the time when the buildings were raised have been preserved, including wooden floors, doors and double-cased windows as well as the ceiling plasterwork. The flats, which range from 1 to 4 bedrooms and from roughly 58 to 123 square metres and which feature either balconies or loggias, are spread across three floors. The attic level divides into four extraordinary flats of 3 to 5 bedrooms. With their bespoke floor plans and generous dimensions of 113 to 236 square metres, these flats create a special quality of living. The roof terraces offer a breath-taking view across the historic town centre of Potsdam.
In addition to the sheer appeal of the city, more and more people are attracted by Potsdam’s economic strength. At present, however, the housing supply falls short of the rising demand for residential accommodation. According to the latest residential property market report, the housing shortage in the Brandenburg state capital amounts to 10,000 flats. If you, too, are looking for a condominium in Potsdam, these generously proportioned flats in the inner city will certainly be worth checking out.
