The house was designed and built in 1968 on top of Renner hill (Renner bühel) and we acquired the property from children of the owners who were eventually using it as a holiday home for their respective families.
As soon as we saw it we fell in love with its location and character.
The house required substantial renovation work to modernize and improve its facilities but we still wanted to try and keep its unusual and traditional aspects.
We will be looking to develop the house further as time goes on with various projects such as:
Opening up the sauna area on the ground floor for guests as well as having an additional shower/bath wet room fitted next door
Converting the large workshop area on the ground floor to a lounge /games room which has fantastic views of the Gosaukamm
Updating and making safe the cable car so that it can be used by guests to bring luggage and provisions up to the house.
Continue to modernise the garage so that it can be both a secure heated storage area for ski equipment in the winter as well as a cycle and water sports equipment storage facility in the summer.
Landscaping the gardens around the house to include a decking area in the rear garden with barbeque facility.

We spent our skiing holidays in this really nice house. We especially appreciated the large living room with the cosy sitting landscape and the warmth of the original kachelofen. The kitchen is large, modern and very well equipped even with a radio - a feature I missed in almost every other holiday appartement. Generally there are a lot of nice little details which make you feel at home immediatly. The house ist perfectly suited for 5-6 Persons who are a little bit sporty because the house sits on a small hill which guarantees free view to the beautiful mountains.
