About our home

Our living quarters consists of the top two floors of a classic (‘Jugendstill’) 5 story building built in 1910.

Facing the south side, and located high up, we receive lots of sunshine, and the three balconies on the ground floor, and roof terrace, are designed to capture the sun as it moves from sunrise to sunset. The quarters provide the feel of a ‘bird’s nest’ given its height and access to open spaces.

There are two separate livable floors, each with its own bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen and living room are located on the bottom floor. There is in addition a guest bathroom, a laundry room with washer and dryer, a cellar for storage and a private garage for one car.

Furnishings (see photos)

The kitchen contains a microwave, refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and is fully outfitted with high quality cooking utensils. There is an outdoor BBQ grill on the roof terrace, which overlooks the lake and city of Zurich.
