Sweden is the birthplace of many beautiful things (Alexander Skarsgård, anyone?) and people flock to the Scandinavian country to check out all the rich culture it has to offer. If you want to take a step further and buy property there, we have just the home for you. Located in Kullavik, this 3,681-square-foot home is a cozy thatched cottage that gives off the feel of an era past.
Listed by Sotheby's, this charming home is surrounded by a wall that encases a professionally-designed garden, walkways, and oak trees. One will also find a large pool, outdoor spa, a two-door garage, and a storage shed to hold all kinds of gardening tools. When a property includes lush gardens, they usually overshadow the home's interior but not in this case. While the yard is nice, the design within matches it in charm and features surprising bits of luxury one wouldn't guess from the thatched home.
With five bedrooms and three bathrooms, the Kullavik cottage is listed at $2.01 million and has a practical layout that makes housing large families easier. This is a house that will inspire you to socialize in the wonderful family areas with their cozy fireplaces, tiled stove and lovely view of the lush garden," says Sotheby's. The bedrooms are set away from the living areas to maintain much-needed peace and quiet, while the master bedroom is found on the second floor. This large bedroom includes a reading corner, built-in bookcases, a large dressing room with a lot of storage space, and a bathroom with a whirlpool tub.
The wine cellar will definitely be a favorite, especially with the way the shelves line the wall much in the same way a bookcase does, putting the bottles on display in a more open manner. Considering temperatures can drop in Sweden, the home wouldn't be complete without fireplaces (of which it has over three).
