Classic Buildings: The Altbau

Historic charm meets unparalleled comfort

Beautifully appointed, built to the highest standards, and with unique characteristics that constantly draw people to their charm. An apartment in these elegant, classic buildings is an exceptional new chance to own a historic piece of the city.

Timeless allure

Dating from the mid-19th C. through to 1949, these elegant Altbau buildings are steeped in history and superbly built, down to the smallest detail. Thanks to their mix of class, comfort and quality, they are hugely in demand throughout many of Germany's city centres, particularly those dating from the “Gründerzeit” of c.1870-1920.

With high ceilings, bay windows, stucco features and hardwood floors, it’s easy to see why Altbau buildings are so sought-after. Remnants of more glamorous days, the light, airy apartments and their sophisticated yet understated style have been eagerly adopted by the city’s more recent residents. The fact that so many are standing strong today is a testament to the sheer quality of their build.

A rare piece

Altbau apartments are a defining feature of the most popular neighbourhoods in many cities. Yet with high occupancy rates and steadily increasing population, these apartments are in great demand, and this is only set to rise further. The government-protected status of many of these apartment buildings, as well as certain building legislations aimed at regulating urban development, have further shortened the supply of these apartments in many property markets.

A solid investment

It is not only their aesthetic desirability which make them an attractive purchase; there are many financial advantages to a classic Altbau apartment. Comparatively, they have a lower cost/sqm than new apartments, meaning an attractive low entry level price. Additionally, despite these being older apartments, there are no hidden costs associated with renovation; the properties offered by EverEstate have been refurbished to a suitable modern standard.
