CH-8197 Rafz, Zurich

Price upon request


The property «Götzen» is idyllically situated in the middle of the municipality of Rafz. This offering is located on the top two floors of the building and comprises approximately 176m². It has a large terrace with beautiful granite slabs, a brass handrail (pulverized), a historic "Zurich lantern" and French sandstone balustrades.

A dry room as well as a bicycle room (communal) and four outdoor parking spaces complete this offer.

Currently, the object is being used as a company headquarters but can be converted into a roof maisonette apartment fairly easily. The two variants can be ideally combined to suit living and working under one roof and would work perfectly as an office or as a doctor's practice.

Under the roof

The property «Götzen» is idyllically situated in the middle of the municipality of Rafz. This offering is located on the top two floors of the building and comprises approximately 176m². It has a large terrace with beautiful granite slabs, a brass handrail (pulverized), a historic "Zurich lantern" and French sandstone balustrades.

After entering the Anteroom you will find a spacious area, usable as a cloakroom and a guest toilet with wonderful marble cladding from Carrara. The characteristic lime green staircase of "Verde-Spluga" is rounded off with Florentine edges has a carved walnut and has been treated with shellac. This beautiful staircase leads you to the upper floor where a ceiling height of over 4 meters and a stylish floor in the style of a Venetian palazzo impresses to say the least. The color of the floor is subtly absorbed into the beams and provides perfect harmony for the space. The color concept continues in the living room, which is a tasteful salmon color. In the middle of the living room is a chandelier, which was specially made by the french creator "Lucien Gau" and is from Paris. All of the wall lights were exclusively matched so that a coherent lighting concept was created. The modern kitchen in a chic country house style has granite tops from "Verde-Spluga". The second toilet in the attic is also lovingly decorated with Carrara marble.

The attic has four underfloor heating plates, which can be individually controlled. There are floor ducts for the wiring, so that the lightness of the room feeling is not impaired.

A dry room and a bicycle room (communal) as well as four outdoor parking spaces complete this offering.

Outside conveniences

The stately home with great attention to detail blends in ideally with the charming village center. During the planning, much attention was paid to every little detail, which makes the property a real showpiece. For example, the windows have sprouts and traditional shutters in blue-green, which give a nice contrast to the bright white facade. The dark blue, electric awnings and the carefully selected plain tile round off the harmonious exterior. The outer surfaces were also lovingly designed, with a variety of bushes, trees and flowers. The fountain, made from Rorschacher sandstone, receives its water from the property's own underground water source. Here, too, you will find the very tasteful historic «Zurich lanterns».
