I am looking for a flat to buy in Berlin around the end of this year, beginning of Protected content . I need three bedrooms (alternatively two bedrooms plus an entrance room which is big enough to be used as an office). I am still confused as to which area I would like to be in, but easy access to public transport is essential. Preferably a south-facing balcony (I like to grow chilies) and I prefer something new-ish. And this brings me to what seems to be the biggest problem in Berlin: a) I like to cook, and b) I like a living-/diningroom that looks nice, so I need a real kitchen, as in a separate room and not just a sorry excuse for a kitchen along one of the walls in the living-/dining room. If you hear of anything, please let me know. I will be in Berlin 30 April to 16 or 17 May. Many thanks in advance.
