Apartments in Berlin Wilmersdorf
Badensche Str. 32 / Gerdauer Str. 9
At the centre of opportunity
The classical modern property stands on historic ground: in the middle of the old town centre of the former rural community of Wilmersdorf – at the crossroads of West Berlin’s residential culture. In the style of the 1950s, it speaks the language of Bauhaus, of universal aesthetics, of greatness in smallness. Stretched-out floor plans. South-facing balconies. Straightforward maintenance.
Detached from the intersection, 18 very practically organised apartments with efficiently usable sizes between 40 and 80 square meters are spread over six floors. Surrounding them: all of life’s offerings.
Living diversity times two
With its two staircases, the building opens passages to different subjects: the fancy and the simple. The ambience of Badensche Str. 32 is clear and simple, that of Gerdauer Str. 1, with its stucco elements and art nouveau doors, more charismatic and arabesque. Apartment sizes from 37 to 111 square meters reveal what is possible: everything – from a single flat focused on the essentials to a prestigious four-room showcase residence.
The majority of the 27 residential units have a loggia or balcony. On the ground floor, there is also a very pleasant commercial unit directly on the corner. The partially landscaped inner courtyard flanks the quiet and particularly bright south side. But there is also plenty of light coming in from the east and north through generous window fronts.
Since 2017, comprehensive maintenance measures have been carried out within the building – visually and technically, but above all in terms of its energy efficiency. Facades, floor, and basement ceilings now have contemporary thermal insulation. In addition to the partial renewal of the roof, many technical components were also replaced: windows, locking systems, meters, heating pump and components of the water supply and drainage system. Together with its existing connection to the energy-flexible district heating system, the building is thus not only future-proof, but also progress-friendly.
It is here where the next chapter of this metropolis begins – on a solid historical basis.
Mixed City Life
Neither über-chic nor super-quiet. More open than bourgeois. On the move, but stout-hearted. In the midst of life and with space for everything it requires. Wilmersdorf is established; not gentrified, but accessible. It celebrates its greatness in detail. Because if you are so centrally located, you have nothing to prove.
Accordingly, the cultural spectrum is broad: the district is home to five embassies, two large parks, the largest art academy (UDK), the oldest existing mosque in Germany, but also a growing Jewish community, top-class restaurants, and research institutions such as the Max Planck Institute.
Formerly the artists’ haven of avant-gardists like Bertold Brecht and Erich Maria Remarque, cosmopolitans of all cultures have found their place here. Friendly. Cordial. Free of attitude. But with an understanding of social modernism.
“Wilmersdorf is when the simple, refined charm of a typical West German town gradually and seamlessly transitions into the vast Berlin with its thousand facets.”
360 degrees of urban culture
The where-is determines the where-to: With about a minute’s walk to the U-Bahn station, the infrastructural connection of the property can hardly be bettered. Five minutes to the south – and you are already in the extensive Volkspark Wilmersdorf. Even the famous Kurfürstendamm with its countless shopping spots can be reached by bike in less than a quarter of an hour. And since Wilmersdorf was made car-friendly in the 1960s, the vastness of Brandenburg is almost on your doorstep.
All essentials are in the immediate vicinity: supermarkets, schools, health facilities. To the north is the Güntzelkiez with restaurants and delicatessen stores. A little further in the same direction: the Haus der Berliner Festspiele and the Bar Jeder Vernunft. East of Bundesallee: the Bavarian Quarter with its many cafés. And on the west side, the multicultural Uhlandstraße.
It’s not a world trip either to Schöneberg’s gay neighbourhood or to Fehrbelliner Platz with its Preußenpark. Because Wilmersdorf encapsulates a world that holds the whole of Berlin together.
