Quiet Flat in Zurich 8008

Hello ladies and gents,

I'm in the process of leaving Zurich behind. I had initially thought that my rent contract ends on the 31st of Dec but due to my incorrect interpretation of the rent contract, my cancellation only comes into effect in 3 months. I have spoken to the "verwaltungsfirma"and they are happy for me to either sublet it till expiry or to renew the contract indefinitely with a nachmieter.

Location: Burgwies
Rooms: 2.5
Size: 80sqm
Price: 2473 CHF including Nebenkosten.

More in detail description below:

The flat itself is located just off Forchstrasse next to the tram museum by Burgwies on Russenweg. Both the Burgwies and Balgrist stations are equidistant - less than 5 minutes walking distance and serviced by the 11 tram. The tram to stadelhofen takes 12 minutes. There is a path through a small forest which leads down towards the Seefeld area and can be walked in about 20 minutes.

There is a Denner and Migro which are next to the Burgwies tram stop (so also very close to the flat). For wine drinkers there is also an independent wine store next to the Migro. On the other hand, by Blagrist you have a hair-dresser, pharmacy and a cafe.

The flat itself is roughly 80sqm and 2.5 rooms. The bedroom has a spacious balcony, the living room has a smaller one and the kitchen has another small one. The dining room also has a door to the outside for light - but I wouldn't call that a balcony.

The living room / dining area are not separated by a door but slightly walled off hence the 2.5. It is located on the top floor (3rd) and has no elevator access, stairs only I'm afraid. Due to the many balconies and glass doors to the outside it is wonderfully well lit throughout the day. However, for the nocturnally inclined all doors to the outside have rollers to block the light.

As it is located on a side street it is very quiet. The kitchen is modern with built in white goods including a dishwasher. There is also a small pantry room which has a washing machine and separate dryer in it.

There is parking in front of the building but it doesn't belong to said building. There is also an allocated cellar area and a communal attic.

I loved the flat to bits and its probably what I'll miss most. All of my furniture has been taken to storage while I find my new flat abroad so I would assume that a sublet doesn't make any sense.

Total rent including Nebenkosten is 2473.

If it sounds like you might like it, please come and have a look . I'd happily answer any questions you may have.

Flat ads are a bit like partnership websites: No pics no chance.

Its my first time ever posting an apartment - but that seems to make a lot of sense. I am back in Zurich on the 4th and will update this post with pictures taken after the endreingung! I perhaps wrongly assumed that a viewing was more important than pictures.

Right. So there was still some cleaning to do - they had moved some rubbish onto the balconies and hadn't disposed of it yet. As of today everything is completely done. I took some pictures this morning before the balconies were pressure washed.

I can only upload 5 pics apparently - I'd happily send out the others via pm.

Have a great start to the week!
