Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am an actress, voice coach and tour-guide. A typical Icelander that does has many various jobs. In the summer I enjoy looking at my beautiful country through the eyes of the visitor enjoying the possibility to see it over and over again with fresh look. In the winter time the arts take over my time. I work in the theatre or training people's skill. Both public speaking, the voice and theatre. I love personal development, theatre, yoga, traveling and swimming in the sea. I have just started re-training sea swimming. If you like that the perfect place to go is Nautholsvik, a free venue in the summer with yellow sandy beach, hot jacuzzy, sauna and good access to the sea. Partly a lagoon heated with geo-thermal water.

Why the Owner Chose Norðurmýri, Reykjavík, Iceland:
This apartment is so unique I fell in love with it since it has such a big character. Many different rooms reminded me of my years in London living in a typical British semi-detached house except this one is on the 2nd floor. A wonderful family house with a story. The last land-post had in Iceland had his farm here and his widow built the house after he died. Very near the city center, the street looking at the behind of Hallgrimskirkja church a lovely angle, making the street very grand. I live here with my 14 year old son and in the winter I have University students as tenants. When I am on the road taking tourists around Iceland in the summer I rent the apartment to tourists.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
What is so great about this location is that is only 10-20 min walk away from the City Center but on the quiet side. There is a swimming pool just around the corner, my sons school just opposite that and all transportation are easy from here. Easy bus connection in all direction. I chose to live here since from here I don't need to depend on the car to get around. I can walk, bike or take the bus wherever I need to. And I have private parking place for my car when I don't need it. That in this area is a luxury. There are several food shops n walking distance as well as café's and restaurants.
