Since I just recently got the house back I am doing a lot of fixes inside and out, and gathering my furniture, so the pictures at the moment are not the best and not sufficient, but more are coming and better photos will be put up soon.
I also recommend watch the video I uploaded.
The house is by the lake Elliðarvatn, It is in Kopavogur which is like a suburbs of Reykjavik. There is a lot of nature here and one gets the feel of being out in the country, while only a 15-20 minutes to the center and just 8-10 min to the nearest mall (Smáralindin).
The house is not rented with the garage, that is rented separately as a studio apartment.
The house is pretty good for a large group or a big family.
There are 4 bedrooms, the main bedroom with a 180*200 bed, and in all the childrens room there is a bedplace for 2 people, 2* 80-200 beds, there is also a sleeping couch for two in the living room and a travelling bed, should that be needed.
There are 2 bathrooms, one with both a shower and the other with both a shower and a bathtub.
There are a lot of people with horses around here and one of the Icelandic horse communities is very close, so there are quite often some horses passing by.
The nature here is vast and there are many hiking trails here if one enjoys doing that. The lake (Elliðarvatn, is about 8 km circumference) which is about a good hour and 30min walk in a very beautiful scenario. A lot of the nature here is a conservation area called Heiðmörk and Rauðhólar (red hills) is an hour walk from the house.
There is a bit of constructions in the area as this is a newish housing area, however there are little or no noises from the houses under construction around us.
