Property description

This new, modern, 55 square meter (550 square ft.) penthouse loft with 2 outdoor terraces, built on top of a late 19th century apartment building in Vienna’s 15th, or “Fünfhaus” District, is owned and designed by an American, Harvard-educated architect.

Located on a quiet street in Vienna’s most multicultural district, the apartment is perfect for those looking for a unique place to stay in an interesting, diverse, up-and-coming neighborhood, removed from the typical downtown tourist areas.

Not to suggest that the apartment is in the middle of nowhere: it is only a 20-minute walk to the Schönbrunn Palace; a 3-Minute walk to the underground U3 subway station, bus, tram & taxi stand; a 10-15-Minute Subway ride to all major attractions and historical sites in the heart of the city, as well as in the thriving, fashionable 7th district (St. Stephan’s Cathedral, Vienna State Opera House, Ringstrasse, Mariahilferstrasse, Spittelberg, Museumsquartier); and a 5-Minute subway ride to the Westbahnof train station with regional / international train and airport bus connections.

This sleek, state-of-the-art loft faces a quiet courtyard and includes a large, beautifully designed bathroom with a toilet and shower, spacious living room with a fully-equipped kitchen and HDTV, and a cozy bedroom separated from the living room with sliding doors.

And to “top” it off: both living room and bedroom have direct access through large glass doors to a secluded apartment-level terrace, which is connected to another upper roof terrace with lounge chairs for relaxing in the sun and enjoying the beautiful view of Vienna!

The apartment is ideal for romantic getaways for couples, vacations for small families, as well as business trips for executives.

Car: Not Necessary

Enjoy the bustling market hall around the corner (“Meislmarkt”), selling fresh foods, fruits and vegetables from all over Europe, as well as the myriad of ethnic restaurants nearby with an eastern European and Turkish flair.

Stroll over to the “Schmelz” Park and visit the old-fashioned beer garden (Schutzhaus) where the locals go in the summer for a Schnitzel and a pint-sized “Krügel”. Walk 20 minutes down to the Schönbrunn Palace where the Habsburgs maintained their summer residence, and visit the great zoo with the kids while you’re there.

Walk 2 minutes to the subway or jump on the tram and take a 10-minute ride into the thriving, fashionable 7th district with its galleries, quirky shops and bohemian restaurants and bars.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: I (the owner) am an American-born, Harvard-educated architect. I grew up in New York City, and have been living and working in Vienna for over 20 years. My firm, which I founded with 2 Austrian partners, specializes in building luxury penthouse apartments in Vienna.

Why Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus, Vienna, Austria:
As an architect and part-time developer, I fell in love with Vienna because of its fantastic architecture, culture, and urban amenities. I personally and specifically hand-picked this property (at that time, an empty attic space) in Vienna’s 15th district, which is Vienna's most multicultural neighborhood, and reminds me of the diverse ethnic areas of New York City where I grew up during my youth. The area is quickly being developed, but at the same time maintains an authentic feel not found in other touristic parts of the city. The street is very safe, and the neighbors are friendly. Also, the excellent public transportation connections (subway, tram), which are just a 2-minute walk away, make it an ideal place to reside.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
My tenant, the beautiful and friendly Monika, rents, manages and administrates the apartment and lives next door on the same level with her young son, Adrian, in the adjacent penthouse loft. She is a native of Vienna, and will take great care of you. And I'm quite sure you'll enjoy relaxing on the spacious outdoor terrace spaces after a long day exploring this beautiful city!
