Great location, great architecture. This 1960s three-storey modernist townhouse in Stockholm, Sweden is now on the market.
This was the show home for a block of similar modernist units dating back to 1965 and is on the market for the very first time. According to the agent, these places rarely come up for sale and coupled with the location, it means this will be a sought after property.
But it isn’t quite the time capsule you might expect of a single owner house. Architecturally little has changed. All of the houses in the block maintain the same uniform appearance, with this one also boasting what looks like the original parquet flooring, the extensive glazing, the staircase and wood clad ceilings.
But beyond that, the owners have moved on a little, with a kitchen area and bathroom looking more 21st century than 20th century and the whole house looking light, bright and fresh. This is a well maintained house that still acknowledges its past.
As for space, there are four bedrooms here, a wet room, kitchen and two extensive reception rooms, one of which looks out over the wonderful surroundings via a rather cool balcony area. A built-in garage, drive and patio / garden finish things off.
The location is something special too. Look out from your balcony and you can see Lake Malaren and the boat club, with a short walk taking you to the beach if you fancy a dip. You can see why people rarely move from here.
More images on the listing and if you speak Swedish, more details about the place too. Like most capitals, property prices are always on the high side and it’s no exception here. The converted price is £1,057,075 or 10,900,000kr if you want the Swedish price.
