Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Sam and I have a special love for Jerusalem. We lived in the German Colony prior moving to London. Our dream was to own a home in Jerusalem, so our children can experience our ancient Homeland. When we saw this special apartment in the German Colony, we knew instantly, that it was the perfect Holiday-Vacation home. We look forward to our visits, knowing we are coming to our beautiful Jerusalem home. It was designed with much love and attention to detail. We hope you will enjoy your stay as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Abu Tor, Jerusalem:
We chose this property in the German Colony, because it is a unique and beautiful building.Though Anglo's live in the neighborhood, it is also populated with many Israelis. The flavor of the neighborhood is diverse and entertaining. Emek Refaim Street is an upscale area filled with great KOSHER restaurants, chic shops, cafe's, artisan boutiques, a large pool, day-spa, gym, live theater, Indie cinema, parks/playground and many Synagogues. The locals are friendly and welcome tourists. We feel blessed to own this beautiful Holiday-Vacation property...our home away from home.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Fully equipped KOSHER KITCHEN! The apartment is a a few minutes walk to Emek Refaim Street and The First Station. We can walk to the Old City/ Kotel in 25 minutes. Everything one needs while on vacation or holiday is close at hand. The apartment is spacious and full of light. All the amenities are of the highest standard and the apt. is fully equipped. The outside patio/courtyard is wonderful for relaxing, reading and watching the sunset. We are a few minutes walk to restaurants, outdoor cafe's, shops, Synagogues, food markets, cinema, historic sites, parks, etc...And, it is a very quiet neighborhood.
