Property description

Villa Drottningholm is a beautiful old house from the 17th century, stunningly located close to a horsefarm and the forest right outside with a perfect recreation area. The house is fully modern, carefully restored in a light, country, scandinavian style. It has it´s nice private ground, a newly renovated guesthouse with 2 single beds and a terrace. The property offers complete privacy. The bottomfloor consists of a livingroom with a fireplace, a large kitchen with complete equipment and a fireplace, and a laundryroom. The second floor has a TV-room, three bedrooms one with a kingsize bed, the others with a singlebed in each. A balcony with view over the horse meadow. There is also a nice bathroom with a yaccutzi. Outside in the garden there is a sauna which you heat with firewood. There is a smaller house fulltime rented on the property. They have their own garden and are very quiet, you will hardly take any notice of them.
Communications: Lovö church is 10 min. walk from Villa Drottningholm, from where the buses take you to Brommaplan (Metrostation) Driving a car will take 20 min,unless you choose the busy early morning traffic, between 7-8 am. A more beautiful way to go to the city is taking the classical steamboat leaving from the royal castle of Drottningholm. Takes 45 min. The castle where the royal family lives, is a must to visit itself. The fantastic garden is a popular target for picnics during the summer. Lovö/Drottningholm is an island sorounded by lake Mälaren. You can rent a boat, but it´s best to be arranged in advance.
Weather: Sweden has far lot better weather than it´s rumor. May, June, July and August hare the most stabil months to enjoy the country. The evenings are light, the sun rices extremely early and sets very late. Temp, around 20-25 C. Atumn is during sep-nov with clear skyes and beatiful colours. Dec-feb we will hopefully have snow, since we love celebrating a white Christmas. It is very cosy, especially in our oldfashioned house. We go countryskiing a lot, just outside the door. When spring comes we sit outside as much as we can, enjoying the light and the sun, the barbeque-season starts and is one of the most popular way of socializing in Sweden.

Car: Recommended

The property is located in a wonderful countryside area, where you can combine the quietness and farmers neighbourhoods with a city vacation in beautiful Stockholm. The royal castle where the royal family lives is close, a must to make a visit, both in the castle and in the popular picnic-park. Ferrys will take you in to the city, a beautiful trip on a steamboat. Our house is old, from the 1700 th century but completely renovated and modern in an old style. Outside the garden of the property you will find ancient monuments, the area leaves historic tracks of heritage, if you will examine even more, go to Birka, the heritage from 700th century, the centre of the Vikings in Scandianvia. Located on small island in lake Mälaren, called Björkö. You will reach it by boat. Right outside the house there is a beautiful forest for hiking or to make a walk to the lake Mälaren, easy to find your private place to swim from. It is walkingdistance to the golf course, renting a boat is a good idea. But last, the city of Stockholm is close.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1993

About: We are a couple with two grown-up children, we run our own business and love to travel, enjoy the nature of our country are interested especially in boats and lake/sea activities. Our main concern is the family and our cat 'Morrgan Stanley'.

Why Stockholm:
We couldn´t beleive our eyes when seeing this ad, the old tired beautiful house at Drottningholm. There are no houses for sale in this area, very raredom. This one must have been a kind of a workes house close to the farm, and it had nothing of modernity we were used to. We spent the winter in the north of Sweden at the time, and my husband Mats took the train to Stockholm, 15 hours, to participate in the auction. We lost, another couple made a higher bid, you can tell we where very disappointed. However a week later the realty agent called, the winner did´nt get the loan he needed. Our bid was now accepted. I hadn´t even seen the place but I new my husband, and could´nt wait until we got the keys. After loads of work, restoring the house over and over, we still love it and people often wonder how we made it, how did we manage buying it? The house is comfortable, cosy and very welcoming. It is clean and very well cared for./Britt

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The unique benefit of this property is the close distance to the city of Stockholm, and still this is a country area. Our neighboors are farmers. Less than 30 minutues we will reach Stockholm, less than 15 min. walk we will find a private place to swim from, or pick mushrooms or blueberrys. And you can walk to the golfcourse.
