Re: moving to zurich

Depends what your budget is, what your boys are used to (can they sleep in the same room or need to be separated).

Size of flat is given in sq metres and the number of rooms (a three-bed flat is a 4 or 4.5 room flat, for example).

Cheaper places are to be found on the outskirts of the city towards the north.

Check out websites such are Homegate, Immoscout, etc. for a feel of what's available.

Hi Lucky 911,
When are you moving to Zurich?

We are looking for someone to take over our 4.5 room apartment from Dec 1st 2013 on. It is in Zollikon and costs in total CHF 4,780 (incl. garage and utilities).

Let me know if you are interested. My cell phone: +41 77 457 22 98

Thank you,
Anela

In terms of area I can recommend Uster to the east of Zurich. We have lived there for the last 3 years with our two daughters (aged below 4). It's on a lake (Greifensee), and feels quite rural in places (there are cows on our doorstep). However it's only a 10 minute S-Bahn ride into the center of Zurich (Stadelhofen). It's cheaper than what you will find in Zurich and around Lake Zurich.

Re: moving to zurich

Cannot comment on the local Swiss schools, as my girls are too young to attend. However there is the English-speaking Learning Tree Cooperative School run by the WAC (Women's Activity Club) in Uster, and my eldest has been attending their preschool classes for over a year now, and she loves them. Their school is a supplement to the local Swiss system. They offer morning pre-school classes for the youngest, afternoon "Explorers" classes for kids attending Swiss kindergarten, and English reading & writing classes for those in local Swiss schools. I know quite a few mums who send their kids there, and have only heard good things. Plus the WAC is a good place to meet other English-speaking mums in the area.

Re: moving to zurich

Hi Lucky911,

My friend has a 4.5 apartment, which he will be advertising on Homegate shortly. It has just been emptied and is available immediately but later dates can be arranged.

The flat has a huge living room, 2 balconies (one very large), Large basement storage, Large shared garden, 2 big bedrooms, 1 small bedroom (as a nursery, study or guest room), Kitchen (incl Dishwasher), Working Fireplace, Bathroom and Separate WC.

The flat itself is located in the sought after area of Zurich Enge, which is a great location as it's only a 2 min walk from Sihl City (Co-Op, Gym, Cinema, Shops, Restaurants, Library, schools, dry cleaners, Tailors, Doctors etc). Migro Braunau Park less than 10 mins walk and Migrolino 2 min walk. 5 min walk to Enge and Saalesporthalle Rail Stations.

Small pets are allowed.

The flat is in a quiet road with no noise issues. The Flat is perfect for a family, couples or house share.

Here are some photos..

Rent is only CHF 2944 p/m.

You can P.M. for more details.

Cheers,

Sgt. Bilko
