Cozy modern penthouse with panorama views of Vienna near Neubau district

Cozy modern penthouse with panorama views of Vienna

Our home is a quiet one bedroom rooftop penthouse flat that is the perfect oasis in the middle of the city.

The flat has two floors, with the entrance on the bottom floor (the top floor is only accessible via stairs so the flat is not wheelchair accessible).

On the bottom floor is the large bedroom with double bed, plenty of storage, a small sitting area, and a south-west facing balcony with trees, herbs, and veggies. The bathroom with shower is on the bottom floor along with a storage closet with washing machine and cleaning supply storage.

On the top floor is the very large kitchen-living room-workspace. The room has vaulted ceilings and large balconies on both sides (north-west and south-east), so it feels even bigger than it is. There is a full kitchen with fridge, oven, electric stove, dishwasher, and separate fridge for drinks. We are passionate cooks so we have plenty of high-quality cookware, and a proper espresso machine :) The dining table seats 6. The couch area has a large tv with a comfortable sound system and record turntable. The room also has two work niches for two people to work from home. The south balcony has a lounge for 2-3 people and the north balcony has a gas grill and a dining table for two. Trees and plants on all the balconies give everything a very green, calming feel even though it is located in the middle of the city.

The flat is dog friendly since we have two dogs. Usually we take them with us or give them to a dogsitter, but if you are open to dogsitting please let us know! They are two whippets, one born 2020 and one born 2015, and are very friendly and relaxed, great companions for city life, and top class cuddlers.

About the location

It`s just a stone`s throw from Vienna`s hip 7th district Neubau where all the best cafes, restaurants, bars, and shopping are, and a 15 minute ride on the bike or public transit from the 1st district (historic city center). Here are some tips on the area: https://viennawurstelstand.com/guide/guide-to-the-7th-district-neubau/
Gyms, yoga studios, rock climbing/bouldering, and more are also close by. A number of theaters and the Museumsquartier with many great museums and cultural offers are a 15 minute public transit or bike ride. The streets in the area are very bike friendly!

The flat is located in a side street and is very quiet. Everything you need for daily needs (supermarket, pharmacy, drugstore, etc.) is just a 4 minute walk away. Bus, u-bahn, and tram are a 4-8 minute walk.

It's also a 10-15 minute walk to the Brunnenmarkt turkish market and Yppenplatz with several cute restaurants, and a 2 minute walk from a nice little park with exercise machines and a dog park, where in the summer there are local events and outdoor music.

From us it's easy to get to the Viennese suburbs with gorgeous vineyards, hiking paths, and traditional Austrian restaurants (20 minute car ride/30-45 min public transit or bike). Within 30-60 minutes on the train you can be in the mountains for proper hiking, rock climbing/bouldering, mountain biking, skiing, and more.
