Acerca de nuestra casa

We fell in love with the area and looked for a small house that we can use as a second home. The neighborhood has a lot of character and we totally gutted and modernized this 1930's town house to American standards. As we love to entertain we focused on a working kitchen with a large dining room (by Austrian standards) and a sitting area with large windows which feels summer and winter alike like a conservatory. The attached deck is a great transition to the fenced garden. When you look out the panorama doors you can not see another house, just trees and gardens. The heart of the house is the original 1930 staircase which leads up to the 2 bedrooms. The master has a queen size bed the second bedroom 2 full size beds. There is a large bathroom with walk-in shower, corner bath tub and 2 sinks as well as a separate toilet room upstairs. You will also find an office nook. The basement has a laundry room and storage for bikes and skis. Parking is free and easily available right out front. We love spending time in our home and having friends over, it is warm and inviting. As it is a second home we have spent many Christmas holidays here and summer vacations and you feel the happy memories when walking in the house.

Más sobre nosotros

  1. We are an international, well traveled family. Spencer is American, Christine is Austrian - married for 25 years. We met in Thailand and still are very fond of Asia. Our two boys are 23 and 11 years old. They have grown up in Florida during the school year and in Graz, Austria during summer and Christmas Holidays with many other travels in between. While our house is a second home we have never rented it and furnished and equipped it like a main home. At the same time we have made sure it's easy maintenance. We are planning to take a gap year, home schooling our younger son for the 2017/2018 school year and are looking for three 1-month exchanges during spring 2018 to live and truly learn about the country/continent we can experience.

Austria’s second-largest city is probably its most relaxed. After Vienna, it is also the country’s liveliest for after-hours pursuits. It’s an attractive place with bristling green parkland, red rooftops and a small, fast-flowing river gushing through its centre. Architecturally, Graz has Renaissance courtyards and provincial baroque palaces complemented by innovative modern designs. Styria’s capital also has a very beautiful bluff connected to the centre by steps, a funicular and a glass lift. Last but not least, a large student population (some 50,000 in four universities) helps propel the nightlife and vibrant arts scene, creating a pleasant, active and liveable city.
Graz is the second largest town in Austria and the capital of Styria, with a population of about 300,000 inhabitants. This middle-sized European city is an influential industrial, cultural and university center. Its specific geopolitical location within Europe and its mixed ethnic population have influenced the formation of Graz as a city of rich cultural exchange. Its historical center, located at the foot of the Schlossberg castle, became a UNESCO world cultural heritage site in 1999 and is one of the best preserved historical downtowns worldwide. The cultural revival in the second half of the 20th century brought innovative architecture and urban modernization to Graz, and it later gained a wider international reputation as the European Cultural Capital in 2003. For this occasion two important modern city landmarks were built: the new contemporary museum, Kunsthaus, built along the river Mur bank and a multi-purpose object, the Murinsel, located directly in the Mur River. The City of Graz has also been a member of the UNESCO Creative Cities network as a City of Design since 2011. Modern development and the preservation of tradition are both equally present here.

Our home is in a desirable area of Graz-Eggenberg: 2 blocks from the foot of a mountain range that is perfect for hiking and mountain biking and one block from Eggenberg Palace and Gardens which is our jogging ground. It only takes 12 minutes by bike (on bike path) to the city center. You can also take the streetcar (tram #7) which runs frequently for 10 stops to the Main Square. The stop is 2 minutes walking distance. The main train station is a tram stop halfway towards the city. It''s a very quiet neighborhood with great infrastructure. Super market, farmer's market (twice a week), bakery, pharmacy, post office and the state's most modern indoor/outdoor pool ("The Oyster") are a 5 minute walk. It's easy to live here without a car if you stay long term. There are excellent speed trains to major cities such as Vienna, Salzburg/Munich etc. Should you rent a car occassionally you can be in Venice in 4 hours, Trieste 3 hours or Ljubljana 2 hours. These are destinations that we ourselves visit regularly and Graz is the perfect home base for them. One of Austria's most beautiful lakes is a 90 minute drive south (Lake Woerth/Klagenfurt).
