15 Key Facts about your new Home:
Location: Close to "Höchi, Hirzel". Inspections only upon prior appointment please.
Farmhouse built ca. 1750. Freshly & extensively renovated in 2016-19. Land size ca. 4500m2, with neighbouring farming fields and proximity to the forest. Located on 750m on the hill, in winter often above the sea of clouds, enjoying many more sunny days. Heavenly and completely unobstructed and distant views from your lounge window over the lake of Zug to the Rigi, Pilatus and the always snowy Eiger, Mönch and Junfrau Peaks
The proud rental price is not just justified by the exquisite quality and craftsmanship of the interior finish, or by all of the house' infrastructure and space, but even more so by the absolute new and unique life you can live up there. You piss in your garden and nobody cares, light a bonfire at midnight because you can, and invite all your friends to a party whenever you feel like - pure freedom and wilderness, and still in 10min in Zug and 20min in Zurich City. Paw!
