Welcome to LeNeuf, a classy Belle Époque building on Torstrasse! Dating back to 1900, the building complex is centrally located in Mitte, a popular and trendy borough of Berlin.
The historic façade with its preserved original period elements and with its restored arched window casings and wooden double-cased windows is quite the eye catcher. The complex consists of a front building with five commercial units, two side buildings and two back buildings, accessed via six separate entranceways and two inner courtyards. Extending over five storeys, the buildings divide into flats of 1 to 3 bedrooms.
In conjunction with the extensive refurbishment works, the residential building is being expanded by nine magnificent new-build attic apartments. Lifts yet to be installed will let you take up your shopping bags with ease.
This new-build 3-bedroom flat with its comfortable size of around 137 square metres will be decorated in an elegant and timeless design. It includes, for instance, a comfortable parquet floor with impact noise insulation and underfloor heating, and downlights in the suspended ceilings of hallway and bathroom. A particular highlight is the roof terrace with its marvellous view of the sky above Berlin and across Torstrasse and the immediate vicinity. The bright and generously proportioned eat-in kitchen is perfect for having a good time with family and friends. The shower-and-tub-equipped bathrooms will have exclusive fit-outs, including fully-glazed walk-in showers, and meet every expectation in a high-end residential ambience.

ACCENTRO App: for iOS and for AndroidIt’s all in the name: "Mitte" being the German word for "centre" and the borough of Mitte covering the historic centre of Berlin. Mitte is composed of a large number of vibrant neighbourhoods, each with its own character. Torstrasse is located in one of the city’s most charming quarters—the Scheunenviertel neighbourhood in the Spandauer Vorstadt sub-district—and an area with a rich cultural history.
Having your residence and home turf on Torstrasse puts all the urban amenities of life in Germany’s first city right at your fingertips. Everywhere you turn, you are surrounded by culinary and cultural diversity. Going south, you will hit Friedrichstrasse, a bustling high street lined with renowned theatres, including Deutsches Theater, Berliner Ensemble and Friedrichstadt Palast. At the bridge where it crosses the Spree River, pleasure boats dock to take you on sight-seeing tours.
Roughly one kilometre upstream lies Museum Island, one of the cultural highlights of the city and a World Heritage Site that is equally popular among locals and visitors. During the summer months, people love to hang out in the parklands of Monbijoupark on the riverbank across from the island. A beach bar with real sand sets up on the riverbank in summer and offers tango dancing beneath the night sky, and there are plenty of things to do for the little ones, including a fairy tale cottage and a child-size pool.
Art and design lovers can browse to their heart’s content in the historically grown area between Linienstrasse, Weinmeisterstrasse and around Hackescher Markt. Galleries and exclusive boutique stores are a particularly rewarding destination for flaneurs. While bustling with life in the daytime, the neighbourhood is every bit as vibrant after dark. Cafés, bars and restaurants of every kind attract Berliners and tourists both, and the nightlife ambience here is symptomatic of the entire city’s joie de vivre.
