Flat in Berlin, Germany

 
I am living in a 104 years old house in the 4 th floor (no lift) under the roof with high ceilings and very bright, 4 rooms on 100 m² (one room, my office, I will probably close) including painters studio (with a small balcony), sleeping room with a double bed (one matrass in the studio possible), big livingroom with kitchen and terrace of 9 m² to southwest. 1 bathroom, toilet separate.
From the very beginning under the roof artists studios were installed, including  towers to both sides and light from the top, which were destroyed during war. In the 60th there were constructed 2 flats, in the 80th together with the loft my flat. In the room, where had been the painters studio I installed mine, when my son left. So I profit of the genius loci ! (I hope)
The quarter of Friedenau is famous for the quantity of artists and other celebrities, that used to live here (E.L.Kirchner, Max Frisch, Marlene Dietrich, who is buried on the cimetary of Schöneberg, not far away, etc). Today still and again there are many artists and musicians living here. Once a year we open our studios to the public. Then the streets are full with people, that try to see most of the about 60 adresses. And I use to have about 150 visitors in the studio and my flat.
ce una fotografie del studio in occasione dei studii d'artisti aperti nel quartiere novembre 2011. La donna nel foto del studio sono io.
There is a foto of an open painter studios day in my quarter. The woman on the studio foto that's me.
The house is situated in the center of the Berlin in a quiet and pleasant quarter, S-Bahn (city railway) and U-Bahn (underground) at the corner, one small and one very large parc nearby (jogging, playground,sunbathing). Several nice restaurants (italian, greec) and caffés on too small squares around, and  an old funny cinema. My street is small and short, no cars going through, only parking, Ideal place to be quiet, but heaving all you need around you and being near to all important things to visit, to enjoy and easy to go to our lakes and forests.
We have some nice little shops in the street and a charming concerthall for musica antiqua just opposite of my house.
A supermarket 200 m, a fruitshop, 24 hours open, at 100 m, biological food 10 min by feet, big shopping centers 15 to 20 min.
8 min. by underground to the old center of West-Berlin, the Kurfürstendamm with all kind of fashion shops and in the streets besides many interesting restaurants and caffés.15 or 20 min.to Mitte (new and old center) with Brandenburger Tor, Reichstag, the operas and the big museums. You can go there by bicycle by the large parc, Tiergarten. I have one bike here and 120 m far there is a bike rent.
I am a painter and a psychotherapist (Gestalt), 71 years old and fit enough to go up the stairs. Former I have been a teacher of fine arts in highschool, and I still give lessons of drawing in the Vokshochschule for adults.
Often I travel to see exhibitions or museums, for example last year I have been in Firenze, Paris 2x, Bilbao, San Sebastian, Düsseldorf, Cologne, Bonn, Emden.
I like music, before all Bach and jazz. I used to play the saxofon in a bigband and a salsaband, now I try to learn accordeon. But I too love literature, cinema and theater.
I have a son, Jan, 29 years old, who does his Phd (thesis) in international law. He is living with his girlfriend in Berlin too.
