Küsnacht is a municipality in the Swiss canton of Zurich. It is located on the so-called Gold Coast on the lower right shore of Lake Zurich in the district of Meilen and is not to be confused with the Schwyz community Küssnacht at the foot of the Rigi. In 2006 Küsnacht was classified in a city rating of the journal Bilanz as the "most liveable city in Switzerland". To Küsnacht belong next to the village center Küsnachter located on Lake Zurich districts Goldbach in the north and Heslibach in the south. Zumikon is bordered by the higher district of Itschnach. At the upper reaches of Küsnachter Dorfbach are the Küsnachter hamlets and farms: Küsnachter Berg, Schmalzgrueb, Limberg, Wiserholz, Hohrüti, Wangen, Chaltenstein (Kaltenstein) and the settlement of Forch. Neighboring communities next to Zumikon are Zollikon in the north, Erlenbach and Herrliberg in the south and Maur in the east.


At the staircase to the generous garden floor, a glass cabinet lets in additional daylight. In the west wing is the wellness oasis with an indoor pool, a Finnish sauna, a jacuzzi and a terrace, which is protected from strange views and offers complete privacy. The glass front to the garden can be completely opened thanks to the sliding function, so that you can enjoy an "outdoor pool" in summer. In the south wing of the garden level there is a 3-room apartment with approx. 59 m² and a separate entrance. A wine cellar invites you to cozy tastings. A boiler room and a laundry room complete the floor.

Ground floor

The reception courtyard with its overgrown, wrought-iron magnificent portal forms the dignified prelude to the fascinating inner life of the Landhausvilla through the picturesque front garden. Through the concave main entrance of the villa you enter the spacious hall, which extends as a viewing and development axis to the garden-side Entrée in the light-filled entrance area. There you will reach a wonderfully curved staircase, decorated with a wrought-iron railing in the upper two floors of the villa. The south side of the ground floor is staged by the spacious living room with numerous windows and a bay window with a picturesque view of the garden and over Lake Zurich. A fireplace offers atmosphere for cold, cozy winter evenings. In the adjoining salon is the dining room with direct access to the kitchen. Here you can gather with family and friends at a delicious feast. The kitchen has space for another dining table and features state-of-the-art appliances such as a steamer, a teppanyaki, a wok and an induction hob, as well as an oven and a two-door refrigerator with Ice Crusher - all V-Zug appliances. A glazed corridor connects the south wing with the west wing, in which another highlight of the villa is located: the pretty Stübli with fireplace, historical details such as decorated beams, tiles, a copper sink and direct access to the garden.

1st floor

At the staircase to the upper floor, a window lets in additional daylight and highlights valuable art objects as well as the generous library, which connects the west wing with the south wing. The upper floor has a sequence of rooms dedicated to sleeping and living. The office has a balcony, where you can enjoy the morning in the fresh air and from where you can enjoy the New Year's Eve fireworks perfectly. Through the forecourt you get into the spacious bathroom with shower and bath. In the west wing is the bike room and the garage, which offers space for two cars and direct access to the villa. A spacious balcony, from which you can enjoy a magnificent view, enchants the outdoor area. Four bedrooms, which can be individually adapted to your needs, another bathroom with shower and bathtub and a closet complete the floor. All rooms can also be designed as a nursery or home office.

Under the roof

Another staircase leads to the attic, where the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom is located. Via the forecourt you reach the generous roof space, which can be set up as a playroom for the children or as a media room. Here there is potential for expansion, because the roof space could be redesigned into living space.

Outside conveniences

The picturesque garden in harmony with the song of the birds and the rustling of the treetops in the wind invites you to play and relax. The flowers of wisteria on azaleas to magnolia trees and edelrosen and bluebells under the birches wings the eye and lets the garden appear monthly in a new splendor. The property is a unique hideaway to retire from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Happy are those who have the privilege of being able to call their villa villa their own.
