About the property

Here you can enjoy a holiday in absolute peace and quiet!

400 year old farmhouse in a natural setting, with large outdoor area and a barn with billiards and table tennis

First Where is the house.

This idyllic cottage is deposited at 850 meters above sea level, surrounded by meadows and forests, amidst the hiking paradise Ötscherland (Most district). The nearest town (Scheibbs) is located about 5 km away. The house was built in 1600 and renovated in 1965 and serves it to the owners as a holiday home. So here you will find no anonymous House, but a cozy house with a lot of flair. The equipment with toys, children's books, games, sports equipment etc. is therefore complete. The decor is a bit shabby, but stylish. Heated it with oil central heating and optionally with wood stoves.

. 2 Distribution of the object

On the ground floor (approx 90sqm) there is a large living room with comfortable seating, bed days, etc., in which a large fireplace (closed hearth) for cozy warmth and coziness makes. Furthermore, on the ground floor, a cozy living room with two peasant dining tables, electric stove, wood stove, where it cooks very well and bake (if you can) and dishwasher. Furthermore, a hall, toilet and pantry. Vault, low ceilings and exposed beams give the rooms on the ground floor is a cozy and quaint atmosphere.

The first floor (approx 90sqm) consists of four bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with shower). Two bedrooms have double beds (180 x 200cm), in the other two bedrooms have single beds put together. The single beds are slightly undersized (80x190) and therefore for tall people too small. In the bathrooms, there are respectively a sink and a bathtub with shower. In the bathroom there is a washing machine.

. 3 Outdoor

Connected to the residential house there is a barn (200 sqm), where there is next to garden tools and firewood children bikes, a ping pong table and a pool table. The use of vorgandenen Sportgräte is at a risk. The owner does not accept any liability for their reliability. Front of the house there are two dining tables, one east, one west facing. The accessible for the tenant free area around the house (patios, paths, meadows) is approx 800sqm in size.

The house is at the end of a 4 km long, steep road leading. If a lot of snow, 4WD and / or chains are required. The area is characterized typical of the region Mostviertel of small-scale agriculture textured - meadows and forests. There are wonderful walks away from the house. Milk pick the neighboring farmers (7 min walk) is one of the classic evening rituals with young children.

400 year old cozy farmhouse in the hiking paradise Ötscherland!
average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews

idyllisch ruhige Lage - geräumiges Haus

  • 5 of 5

Wir, eine Berliner Familie mit 3 jugendlichen Kindern, haben die 2 Wochen im Sommer 2015, in denen wir hier zu Gast waren, sehr genossen. Das Haus liegt in einer vollkommen ruhigen Umgebung und war daher der ideale Kontrast zu unserem Großstadtleben. Es bot reichlich Platz für uns und war gut ausgestattet. Die Beschreibung und die Bilder im Inserat sind zutreffend und aktuell. Die Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter verlief optimal. Wir würden das Haus jederzeit weiterempfehlen!
