A one room apartment (with own entry), used solely by you. The spacious room is equipped with a double bed, a desk, shelf space, TV, a window front with direct access to your private terrace. Bathroom renovated with shower and bathtub; Kitchen (separate room) fully equipped for cooking with space to sit and eat with window to the garden. Hallway has plenty of closet space. Free parking space outdoors. You can rent one additional room (smaller) at price tbd. (to "act" as a bedroom).

The space
Due to COVID-19 we will fully disinfect before new guests come and leave it one day at least empty! The spacious room is equipped with a double bed, or if you come alone one bed can be put underneath the other bed, leaving you more room. A desk with an ergonomic good chair and desk light, lets you do your work. But for leisure a big -Smart TV screen is there for entertainment. The Internet is very strong, since we both need this in the house for our work too. Lots of shelf space and a large window front (reaching from floor to ceiling) provides you light and access directly to the garden terrace. The beautiful garden terrace has a table and two chairs for you to enjoy. The neighborhood is very quiet and our large garden provides lots of green and flowers. The bathroom is newly renovated with shower and bathtub. The kitchen is fully equipped with sink, stove, oven, fridge, microwave, kettle and two options for coffee (see below). The kitchen is retro style (of age), eg. the stove are the traditional black round heating plates and fan is simple fan on wall. But all works perfectly. A large new window in the kitchen provides light (view to the garden) and lets you enjoy your meals at the kitchen table with two chairs. In the wardrobe/entry and hallway is a shoe shelf and plenty of closed space for you.
We have a parking space in front of the house outdoor for your availability.
If you would like to have more space, such as a living room, then you can rent additionally the second smaller room, It it has also a double bed and can function as bedroom and the bigger room can be your living room (beds to be stuck underneath)
The vicinity of Forch is very green with lots of places to enjoy hiking, jogging, swimming etc. (see pictures). Let me know your interest and I can provide you with the price.

You are fast in Zurich downtown (13km) by car; there is very punctual and regular (every 15 min.) public transportation to downtown Zurich. Count 20-25min. ride plus a commute by foot to the station of 7-10min.

My husband and I live in the adjoining house above and are available (by WhatsApp) in case you need anything.

Please strictly do not smoke in the apartment, we have an ashtray and you are welcome to smoke outside.
If you need to do your laundry, please ask us, so we can give you access to the washing machine if we are around. (Washer (incl detergent), dryer, iron can be used for a fee covering the costs.)
Coffee machine: we have two options: filter coffee machine (gold filter-no need for paper filters) or Espresso capsule machine brand Delizio (available at Migros only)

My husband and I are living in the main house in Forch and we love to rent out the separate apartment adjoining the house. We love to meet the people from all over the world, but we leave your privacy of course. Our kids both moved out and thus we have some space available.
