Prager Strasse 11-19

Houses in Prague (Bonn 2020-2022)

A successful extension of the residential development in Bonn-Auerberg is the "Prague Houses" (built in 2021) on Prager Strasse to Auerberger Mitte, a row of five single-family houses with a high quality standard, a small garden, and no basement. The five rows of houses each consist of 2 full floors (ground floor + 1st floor) and a staggered floor, on the 2nd floor with alternating large roof terraces. The ground floor is divided into a large eat-in kitchen, a living room and a guest toilet. On the 1st floor there are two large rooms that can be divided into 2 to 4 separate individual rooms, plus a bathroom. On the 2nd floor there is another living room and a bathroom. From there you can reach the roof terrace, protected from direct views, which is equipped with a pergola made of larch wood, which is planted and vines accordingly and offers natural shading and cooling of the roof and outer wall surfaces in summer. Three of the five roof terraces face south-east towards Prager Straße, two roof terraces of the middle houses face north-west towards the green space of “Auerberger Mitte”. The "Prague houses" offer a living space of approx. 142-144 m² each. Each house has a carport with a small shed. Each of these houses has wooden windows with larch shutters. The covered entrance doors, the interior doors and the interior staircase are also made of wood. Underfloor heating has been laid on all floors, linoleum and stoneware tiles were used as floor coverings. An energy-efficient heat supply for the "Prague Houses" is provided by air-water heat pumps. The "Prague houses" with the extensive roof greening of the flat roofs and the planting with surrounding hedges made of hornbeam fit perfectly into the design of the outdoor area of the neighboring courtyard buildings.

Auerberg has good shopping facilities, secondary schools and the North Sports Park with a swimming pool and is characterized by good local transport connections and level cycle paths, which can be used to reach Bonn city center in just 15 minutes. At the same time, nearby motorway connections offer good and fast connections in all directions, especially to Cologne and to Konrad-Adenauer-Flughafen Cologne/Bonn (motorway connection A 565).
