About our home

Our beloved farmhouse is situated next to a forest with the very best view to the valley and to our city called Lorch (11000 inhabitants). It offers the charm of former good times as we have removed nearly all the walls to show the timber-frame and to enjoy big rooms and atmosphare. The garden is 1400 sqaremetres alltogether,a bit of mowing will be required (from Mai till September).The appartment has around 120 sqaremetres, a open living-dinig-kitchen-room with everything you need including LCD-tv, highspeed internet, wood-heater. It offers a bathroom with extreme big bathtub (for 2) , an extra toilett and 2 kids rooms. Than one level higher a sleeping room plus 40 sqare metres of living room/office/atelier.
Adjacted to the farmhouse are 3 horsestables with paddock, but don`t be afraid, we will put the horses to a friends horse agistment while we are in Australia.
You will definately love the views the house has to offer and the silence (there are only 10 houses on the hill) whilst living near all amenities, too.


More about us

  1. We are a family of 4 people and (normally) 2 horses under one roof.
    Joerg and I are both self employed industrial designers, our boys are 7 and 9 years old.
    We plan to migrate to Australia as we have a skilled provisional visa. For the first 6-12 month house sharing would be perfect as we will come without container to see if the boys are as happy down under as we used to be. We will take our labtops with us and some paperwork, that`s all we need to work from Australia or whereever for our customers. After 2 years we are able to apply for permanent residency, than we will decide if we sell the house or rent it our again.
    We bought the farmhouse 13 years ago and renovated it with lots of love and much handwork by ourselves. Hope you will be as happy here as we used to be.
