Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We offer a beautiful former workshop house, the living room and kitchen are on the ground floor, a 4 meters high loft space of 90m2 with an open fireplace. The old steel windows open on three sides to the urban garden with a cosy sitting area with barbecue and table tennis. The first floor is for the parents and has a large sleeping room with a quite terrace with view, a generous bath with shower and tub and two office rooms that can accomodate two additionnal people.
The children’s floor on top is currently occupied by our son and his flatmates; it is not available in our exchange offer.
We bought the house two years ago and renovated it last year. Being architects, we not only planed the renovation and supervised the building works, but did also a lot ourselves.

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

The house is located in the centre of Dubendorf, a small town at the border of the city of Zurich. In walking distance of 5 minutes you find everything you need for everyday life, from supermarkets, to gym and drugstores. There is a good public infrastructure with library, public bath, tennis club, ice-skating hall, a studio cinema and a cultural centre. On the other side we have just four km away the beautiful lake of Greifensee with view on the Alps, a real alternative to the busy lake of Zurich. The surroundings of the lake are a natural reserve situated in the rural area of Zurich Oberland. With public transportation or by car, you reach the centre of Zurich within 20 minutes. Zurich is a small big city, the main attractions are in walking or cycling distance, which leaves you plenty of time to discover the lively and fast developing city. From the main train station you have trains to all parts of Switzerland, every place of the country is reachable for a day excursion.
