House in Obsteig, Austria

 
Our house is a spacious old farmhouse (16th century) in a little village in the mountains of Tyrol. We have an open garage, a front garden where we grow vegetables and flowers and we have a possibility to make fire and barbacue on a lava-stone-plate. And we have a back garden with apple trees, a green playground and a heap of fine sand for the children.
We restored the house in the years between 1989 and 1996, but there are still little things to do. We mainly used natural materials especially a lot of wood inside. In winter the house is heated by stoves with wood.
 
At the ground floor there are thick stone walls and vaulted rooms on the right side: one is the large kitchen with an electric cooker, with normal cooking equipement, with a sitting place and with space to play on the floor or to dance; behind the kitchen is a pantry and Maria´s writing and working room. The bathroom down stairs encloses shower, washing machine, toilet and a wooden bathtube. On the left side downstairs is the music room with one half in old wood panels, with a stove and a place to settle back and nestle, with piano, double bass, drums and several other instruments and many music CD´s.
Upstairs are the sleeping rooms: two with a double bed and two with single beds. And upstairs is another bathroom with toilet, shower and a smaler but modern bathtube, a place with a computer you can use, a large sized bookshelf and a workshop.

Our Neighbourhood

 
These nature fotos are all taken in our area. On the panorama you have a view over the Inn Valley to the Sonnenplateau, it´s really very sunny here – our home is in the left back side in front of the mountains.
 
Our area is in one of the most impressive landscapes of Austria in the heart of the Alps.
It is very silent here, except on some days when the farmers are in a hurry to bring in the harvest.
Around our house you can make many beautiful tours by foot or bike. It’s easily to hike onto the mountains near the house. We have hiking sticks and the via ferrata gear for four persons.
Nearby are possibilities to climb, to swim and to ride horses.  http://www.mieminger-plateau.at
In the surroundings are cultural events, sight seeing, museums and many outdoor activities.
By car it takes 40 minutes to Innsbruck, our capital town – there are many objects of interest.
