A unique and peaceful family home with a large beautiful garden centrally located in Jerusalem's German Colony. Our house was built in the early 20th century...
Where is it?
In the exclusive Arnona neighborhood, we are half a block from the US Consulate in the midst of an ethnically diverse environment with old pine tree-lined streets, parks & walkways. There is a small commercial center one block away with a grocery, cafe and post office. Down the street are banks, restaurants, burger places, bakeries, cafes, pizzerias, small groceries and supermarkets, and two very good ice cream parlors. Other facilities such as laundry and dry cleaning, hair stylists and even a pool and spa are in the neighborhood. An urgent care facility is down the street about 6 blocks away. There are plenty of synagogues of all different types within a few blocks -Traditional (Shay Agnon, Bet Boyer), Carlebach (Mizmor L'David), Egalitarian (Maayanot, Moreshet Avraham), Sephardi (HaHorsha) and more. Nobel Prize winning author S.Y. Agnon's house (now a museum) is right around the corner.
The building has its own parking lot and there is a bus to the center of the city right on the corner. The bus ride to downtown is about 10 minutes. Major shopping, entertainment and restaurant areas are all within walking distance - The industrial area of Talpiot (a 10 minute walk) has everything you need - four malls, supermarkets, banks, movies and more. Also within walking distance is the Tayelet (Promenade) with an overlook of the Old City. Just outside our neighborhood (a 5-minute bus ride, 15 minute walk) is the bustling regenerated Train Station (First Station), now alive with free events, restaurants and shops. This is also where the bike path starts and our bikes (and helmets) are available for your use. The new Yes Planet cinema with the latest movies and theaters with 4D is right down our street. Derech Bet Lechem with its cafes and shops (including Bagels, the popular Grand Cafe, and local hang-out Kalo) is 10 minute walk and Emek Refaim, referred to as Jerusalem's Columbus Avenue is a 20 minute walk.
Other things to note
This is not your typical Israeli city apartment. We created, crafted and designed it to have an open inviting sense of space and many conveniences for your (and our) comfort. From the wood and stone interiors to the babbling serene sounds of the waterfall we offer you a solid foothold in our Holy City. Every bedroom has its own remote-controlled air conditioner with an inverter for heat plus there is central climate control in the main living areas. The gas fireplace warms the whole second floor (and creates a great atmosphere). The downstairs bedroom area has its own water cooler (with instant hot water) so our guests can have cold filtered water, a cup of tea or their morning coffee without going up to the kitchen. There is ample sitting space throughout the apartment. The dining room table fits 12 comfortably and we have fit 25 people for sit-down meals using an extra table and chairs (all available to you). There is a breakfast bar and an area in the kitchen designed for kids to hang out (maybe they'll even help out!).
