About our home

We offer a factory loft with a large roof terrace in the very center of Berlin or a lakeside estate close to Berlin - or the two of them.

The BERLIN LOFT on the first floor of a former factory has 170 square meters, and two rooms. 3.5m high brick walls, open bath, completely renovated. It accommodates 4 up to 6 persons. It is part of an officially protected monument. Everything is extremely open. The sleeping area is separated - but has no door. Only the children's room and the toilet can be closed by a door. In the children's room there is a high sleeper with a 140x200 cm mattress for two children or also an adult couple. Moreover we have a sofa bed which can be put below the high sleeper. The loft is ideal for a family with two children. Of course there is enough place in order to accomodate additional people - for instant on one of the sofa beds in the living area.

The BERLIN LOFT has only one bath: shower, bathtub, basin, toilet. The kitchen is fully equipped, including a professional juice extractor. In the living area you will find a highend music system (Burmester, Lua, Audiophysic). You will have free Wifi access. You can watch films on bluray or DVD with a performant projector in a kind of home cinema, but we have no TV set in Berlin.

We have a second loft on top of this one. We use it as Sandra's artists' studio and in order to accomodate friends visiting us from time to time. It has a 75 sqm roof terrace with barbecue which you can also use if you stay in the lower loft. You can acceed the terrace directly via the stairs from the lower loft. The upper loft itself has 105 sqm, a small fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom with a shower and an additional toilet. There are two sofa beds to sleep on but no curtains. If you need a second loft, we can talk about this one as well. It is a bit like camping, on a high level. The respective fotos in the gallery are entiteled "Upper loft".

The LAKESIDE HOUSE has 220 square meters and accommodates up to 8 persons. It is a former farm, fully renovated. It is our second home and we use it for weekend stays. You find it on our homepage. It`s pure nature, surrounded by 6000 square meter grounds with a 45 meter lakeside front. You can go for a swim, get out on the lake for fishing by boat, do some biking - or just relax.

The LAKESIDE HOUSE has two floors, 5 rooms, 2 bathrooms. Everything is very bright and open. You can stay there with one or two families (if you are good friends). It is fully equiped with everything you need: kitchen, washing machine, tumble dryer, music system, TV set. Internet access is via LTE (4G) with Wifi - and it works.

The whole LAKESIDE ESTATE has two further buildings: fully renovated and partially rebuild former barns. There you find the boats, table tennis, table football, three bikes and one tandem bycicle, the garden furniture and many other things to entertain you or to do some exercises.

Where is it?


The BERLIN LOFT is located in a former factory in Kastanienallee in Prenzlauer Berg. The former factory is partially used for commercial issues and for living. On the right side of the building there is Berlin's largest public beer garden, on the left side there are typically Berlin apartment buildings. You need ten minutes by bike to the Brandenburg Gate. Kastanienallee is a hot spot of Berlin with stylish stores and cafes. Berlin people call it "Casting Allee". The former factory is located in the second backyard. Behind it there is a big garden used by some of the residents of our building. Again behind the garden there is a public children's playground which has to be acceeded via Oderberger Strasse around the corner. Usually it is absolutely quiet and you won't belive that you are in the very center of Berlin. On warm summer nights it may happen that some of our neighbours party open air in the garden..

The LAKESIDE HOUSE is located in a small 450 inhabitant village in the countryside close to Berlin. You reach the Brandenburg Gate in the middle of Berlin in 45 minutes by car. The estate is in a short impasse which leads directly to the river of Dahme. In the direct neighbourhood there are family houses and a farm. Our left side neighbour offers boats for hire and entertains a small marina on a professional basis. There is no commercial infrastructure in the village. A bakery and some stores are at 2 kilometers in a neighouring village. You can use our bikes and boats.
