About our home

Our home is nestled in the Zurich hinterland with sweeping panoramic views of the Swiss countryside and mountains. Located between Zurich & Luzern the property offers easy access to either city - whilst allowing full enjoyment of all the countryside and nature has to offer. A selection of hiking, walking & natural swimming options can be found either on our doorstep or close by.

The house is split over three levels. The upper floor is occupied by an open plan kitchen & lounge plus a spacious balcony offering commanding views of this beautiful land locked nation. Floor to ceiling south facing windows provide plenty of natural light and on a clear day it's possible to see the North face of the Eiger plus many other snow capped peaks.

The ground floor provides one spacious Master bedroom with king size bed & en suite offering a bath and walk in shower. We have a study with a computer offering internet access if required. A further large bedroom again with a king size bed can be found in the cellar. There is a separate toilet and walk in shower located off the hallway on the ground floor. A circular staircase offers access from the balcony to the garden where a small lawn with shrubs and wide variety of herbs and seasonal vegetables can be found. The garden can also accessed directly from the Master bedroom & Study.

The property is in excellent condition with Farrow & Ball colours throughout. Our home is built to the highest Swiss and renewable energy standards and is heated/cooled via a thermal heat pump. No need to adjust any temperature controls and there is always plenty of hot water.

We are both non smoking and have a small, adopted elderly dog who we share our home with. The house also offers 2 x secure and undercover parking spaces a short distance from the property.

More about us

  1. We're a British/French couple with an adopted dog from Croatia living in the heart of Europe.

  2. Martin is ex-tech industry - now focused on social impact projects and Delphine has worked in the financial services industry for many years.

  3. We love good food & drink, our friends and travel. Our home is our sanctuary. We travel virtually everywhere with our furry friend. She loves a road trip - hence our desire for house swaps only in Europe for the foreseeable future.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

There is a selection of local grocery stores a short drive away. Additionally it is possible to purchase eggs from our local farmer a 5 minute walk away plus fresh seasonal fruit & veg plus apple juice and cider from the local farms dispersed around the local region.

There is a small selection of restaurants for eat in / take away - our favourite place to go for cordon bleu is a leisurely 30 minute walk through the local hamlet and woods. Other options are a short drive away.

Retail therapy
The district of Nierderdorf in Zürich offers wonderful sights, culinary delights and shopping in Zurich's old town.
Spot of exercise
There are plenty of walking opportunities on our doorstep. One adventurous option would be the 5 hour return trip to the observation tower on Albishöhe - see photos.
Day tripping
Zurich, Luzern and Rapperswil are within a one hour drive. In addition many mountain peaks accessible on foot or cable car are easily accessible for a memorable day trip.
