Not too far our of Gothenburg is this rather stylish 1960s architect-designed modernist property in Trollasen, Sweden. It is on the market too.
The house dates from 1961 and has obviously benefited from very sympathetic owners over the subsequent 50+ years. All the details ate still in place, with a splash of modern-day style adding something to the pot too.
It is a two-storey property that looks to have been built into a hill, with the main entrance and the garage accessed from the upper level, while the main living accommodation looks out onto the garden. A good view too with all the extensive glazing too. You can also see the sea, which is in walking distance of the house if you want more.
Inside is a midcentury Scandinavian dream. Bright, open plan and with all that original details either intact or in keeping.. Wood ceilings (and some walls), vintage-style kitchen (mixing original units with modern tweaks), Scandi light fittings and spiral staircase. The coolest office you will see this week too.
But not a museum. There are a lot of modern touches and finishes too, adding some contemporary Scandinavian flair to the original 1960s pieces. If you can’t afford to buy it, you can use it as inspiration for your own place.
In terms of the living space, a tile hall takes you into heart of the house, where you will find the open plan kitchen and living room which also offers access to the patio. There is a further living room on the ground floor and a terrace, which is where you’ll find those sea views. Upstairs from there are two bedrooms and a bathroom.
There’s also a lower floor, which is accessed via the spiral staircase. That’s currently laid out with a living room and a large office that should make your time at a computer screen a joy. Also here are ‘two possible’ bedrooms, one of which accesses the garden. A laundry room and bathroom finishes things off.
It’s our idea of a dream house and if it is yours, the price is 4,800,000KR, which is around £372,000.
