4 striking Berlin properties for sale right now

From warehouse conversions to water towers

Berlin has been a playground for some of the world’s most prominent architects, from Karl Friedrich Schinkel to Walter Gropius. And though much of the city was destroyed during World War II, it retains this pioneering spirit through its adoption of adaptive reuse in the 21st century, which sees many of its industrial relics being put to new use.

Primarily a renter’s city, there are some gems to be had on the Berlin property market. Here are some of our favourites for sale right now.

Four-metre-high ceilings and polished concrete floors are offset by soft stucco finishes and an earthy colour palette, while the kitchen is a monolithic concrete slab.

Wasserturm for sale in Berlin
Via Engel & Völkers

€1.995m via Engel Voelkers
Raw industrial bones are on show inside this former water tower, which sits in the middle of a cattle farm in Prenzlauer Berg. Dating back to 1909, the structure – which also served as a radio tower in its previous life – is heritage listed and has undergone some restoration work in recent years, including the shoring up of its roof and exterior. It’s now offered for sale, with the prospect of being turned into a unique 320 sqm home, or a mixed-use live/workspace. Its ground floor has previously been a cafe, and there’s the option to expand across the 727 sqm plot at the base of the water tower.
