That house looks overpriced to me. Interior looks nice but too many houses near you. I have seen better for CHF250,000 with green space all around and much better views

Edit- Ok it is the whole building so maybe not overpriced but location I don't like. The building looks solid though.


Edit-2
Lot cheaper-

Priced to sell though with no parking but you can rent a place down the road - two minutes walk (half an hour in a blizzard when you've done your two weekly shop before you get snowed in!)

Well I am not buying it, that was just an example. I am not the one who has reserved that house My current 3.5 room flat is 65m2.
Maybe the person buying it will open it up a bit?

If I was free and single, I'd be up for the crazy scheme you have in mind. Why not? As long as you survive the winter...

Must be the ones up in the attic? For 1 or 2 people the house is plenty. You disagree?
I might need to get a dog though.

66m2 is fine for 1-2 people.

Get a dog who lives outside.

And some goats or sheep to trim the lawn.

Careful with the dimensions, ours is 55m2 outside, 40m2 inside (walls are 50cm), so 5x11 outside, 4x10 inside.

That would be cruel, dog would freeze to death?

Bloody hell you want me to turn into a farmer. Next you will tell me to marry a sheep, wouldn't a cow be better?

Sometimes there's rooms that don't count because the ceiling is too low or the heating doesn't work on the top floor (would need a space heater, etc...)

I want a summer home now. I don't really care all that much about the house, it's the garden I want.

Re: Maintaining small house & living in the lower mountains questions

House sizes, at least for insurance, are based on m3 and not m2.

Which is why our insured value is about 2x purchase price.

Just saying.
