Located in the trendy university district of Bern, this house offers a prime location for all your needs. Whether you travel by public transport, car, or bicycle, this location offers a quiet refuge for families while being close to a large forest, downtown (main train station) and the beautiful old town. The autobahn exit is around the corner, as are bus stations and bicycle sharing stations.

Deemed a heritage site, this house was built in 1892 for factory workers of the famous Toblerone chocolate. The street located behind the house is a semi-private street offering a safe place for children to meet and play. The neighbours are friendly and are often found having a BBQ in their gardens, getting together for a glass of wine or playing ping pong on the street.

The house has three floors plus a basement. Each floor has a toilet, while the first and second floor have a shower as well. The second floor is divided into 2 separate rooms with a landing and bathroom. The first floor has an office with a sofa (with a built in bed) and the master bedroom with its own balcony. A newly renovated bathroom and shower with adjacent closet. The ground floor has the kitchen, dining room and living room with a fireplace. The dining room leads out to the backyard. The basement has lots of storage space, complete with laundry which also leads out to the backyard via small staircase.
