Zurich-Affoltern

Soon, I’ll be moving back to Zurich, this time for a longer period of time, and with a spouse. We’ll also be moving from the suburb Oerlikon, to Affoltern! Michael was successful with his flat application–he has the gift. Let me share some photos with you. Please excuse the quality though.

 

Screenshot from Google Maps. Our place is the ground floor apartment, with four windows facing the street. A pedestrian crossing is just outside the apartment, which is always convenient.

Living room. We’ll need good curtains. I’m excited about this place because it’s so much bigger than Michael’s current flat, and it has several advantages too! Like no balconies. I don’t spend time on them, so why have wasted space?

This would be another one of those advantages, my own washing machine and dryer!! This is the absolute holy grail of apartments, to me, that is. I disliked sharing washing machines and sticking to a schedule. I had to run up and down like a maniac to get all our week’s washing done. No more, no more… :)

Doppellavabo. Sweet. No fighting for space. I get the sink in the corner, so I can take my time! I dare say this will be our apartment for several years to come.

The only room that has windows that face the backyard. It’s on the small side, but we’ll use this as our bedroom. I can’t stand noises such as speech and music while I’m trying to sleep, so this room should be ok.

Backyard, and view of the building with other apartments. I shall never step into the yard, because of all the prying eyes.

This supermarket is just 3 minutes away, by foot. The bus stop is 2 minutes away, and train station 5 minutes. It’s a really great location, since we won’t have a car.

Well, thanks for joining me on this tour. When I finally get there, in January, I shall have some photos to share, and even more of my sacred crafting and hobby space. Yay!
