Property overview

The apartments in House Hirsch, a three-part structure inspired by the "Stalden", the typical building shape from the neighbouring Gomsertal valley, are located at the north-west end of Andermatt Swiss Alps.

There are currently 1, 2 and 4 bedroom options available with areas ranging between 91 sqm and 226 sqm.

A solid natural stone plinth thereby forms the base on which the main body, made from larch wood, sits, separated by a glazed joint section.  Inside the building, the central core stairway connects to three apartments in each case, whose living and dining areas are oriented towards the west, in the direction of the Reuss, or to the east, towards the street. Interesting views of either the wide valley or the village centre are thereby ensured for all the apartments. The living rooms are fronted by spacious balconies, which extend the living and dining room into the external area on sunny days.

The materials used in the interiors are based on the chalet style traditionally found in the area. The materials - such as a soapstone fireplace, oak parquet and wooden wall and ceiling coverings - are finely and precisely worked in order to create a discreet, modern basis for the fittings. It goes without saying that all the interiors of the living units are built to a high standard and include comfort ventilation.

For the calculation of the area of the premises, the net living space is calculated, i.e. the measurements of the interior walls, but without the external and apartment partition walls and without the technical services zones (rising zones), as well as the areas in the attic floor up to a jamb wall height of 1.20 m, and including half the balcony area or one quarter of the covered sitting area.

Andermatt's postcard panorama is full with flowering meadows in the summer and snow-covered mountains in the winter, this place incorporates the soul of Switzerland in an incomparable manner.

Embedded in the Urserntal valley, Andermatt is surrounded by an unspoilt Alpine landscape. The high valley at the foot of the Gotthard Massif offers distance and space, and pampers you with one of the best water qualities in the world: a gift of nature that has been appreciated for generations.

Water plays a very central role here. Because two of the most important rivers in Europe, the Rhine and the Rhone, have their sources in the Gotthard region.

Andermatt is remarkably accessible. Thanks to its central location and its vicinity to the major transit routes (North-South and East-West), Andermatt has excellent connections to the transport network.

Regional info

Andermatt. A Home in Uri Canton.
In a wide, high valley close to the source of both the Rhine and Rhone rivers and below the vital Gotthard Pass, Andermatt lies at the very centre of Switzerland. Its strategic history includes time as an important trading town and a buzzy staging post for Alpine travellers.
 
German poet Goethe described Andermatt in 1770 as “the most interesting and beautiful place” and that description certainly holds true today. After many years of operating below most skiers’ radar, Andermatt recently unveiled one of the most exciting and ambitious projects in the Alps. New hotels, modern chalet-style apartment buildings and extensive facilities from a Gary Player-designed golf course to an indoor sports centre are making Andermatt the place to watch.
 
The golf course and several new properties are complete. The first new hotel, the wonderfully opulent yet always intimate five-star Chedi Hotel opened in 2013 and immediately secured a place on Conde Nast Traveller’s Best Hotels List. Apartments and penthouses in The Chedi and other new-build homes in the resort have brought a new fan base to this long-established town.
 
Andermatt Overview:
 
Best for: Serious off-piste skiers, golfers and active families looking for a comfortable, year-round Swiss home free of all restrictions on foreign ownership.
 
Property: Contemporary and fully serviced apartments and penthouses at various price points in a charmingly authentic and historic Swiss town.
 
Who Owns There: Buyers from across Europe and the Middle East come for the Swiss quality of life, the world-class Chedi Hotel, bracing off-piste skiing, a PGA golf course and the potential of a year-round resort that is undergoing significant and exciting development.
 
Access: Andermatt is well connected by road and rail, around 90 minutes from Zurich airport and within two hours of Milan.
