The second of the Brickworks twins in Downtown Kitchener sits only steps from the the Centre in the Square on what used to be Kaiser Street. The First World War made its mark and the name of the street was changed to Mansion, but the resilient people who built up our community remained. Hard work still pays off in this Golden Triangle of diversified economic activity. Kitchener residents know how to both do our best and be happy in this German town, as anything less than 10 out of 10 is a “nein”. That’s the spirit that got us here - it's good to see it come back to Berlin. 101 Mansion is built of European brick to proudly stand the test of time. So huff and puff away, and you’ll see that Old Berlin Brick works. Safely inside, you’ll feel the spirit close at hand, whether it be from heavenly beams of light from the two and a half story cathedral ceilings that span from the loft, to the family room, and down to greet guests in the elevated front foyer. Or step down to relax in your large but cozy 21st Century Shenke-style gathering space, with quality in evidence through and through as you raise a toast - or as you toast your feet by the fire. Down the upstairs hall and past the delightful vaulted family room, is the master retreat with its spa-like ensuite to warm up your spirits in the morning. Later on, you can walk straight on through the closet access for some schnapps and reflection in the evenings. Past the convenient laundry are two equal-sized bedrooms separated by a wall, and sharing the sleek main bath. The French doored loft can be used as another massive bedroom, or perhaps as a studio or and office (or all of the above) with direct access to its own stunning bath and remarkable views. Efficient and smart, this is a great alternative to a penthouse with no exorbitant fees and little maintenance. Instantly irreplaceable, this is Real Estate crafted to an old world standard, yet taking into account modern day expectations. Lifestyle handled, now click to take the virtual course on Mansion 101 and, if you didn’t have a chance to consider what Downtown Kitchener had to offer last time round, I invite you back to experience this Kaiser of a Mansion in old Berlin.
