Tallarövägen – Vaxholm

Stockholm, Sweden, Sold, £610,000


This sea view villa, set among the trees, is ideal for the outdoor enthusiast. The property is located high up in the woodland overlooking Vaxholm’s water. Just a short walk from the house, the property’s boathouse sits in the popular Eriksö outdoor recreation area.

With many of its 1970’s features still intact the villa has plenty of potential to be made your own. The property is split across several levels, owing to its hillside location which creates several inviting spaces and access to different outdoor terraces. The lower floor, once used as an artist’s studio, has large windows, letting in lots of natural light. The middle floor has an open living space featuring the stunning spiral staircase and would make an excellent open plan kitchen. Upstairs there are three spacious bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The most outstanding features of this property are its two original fireplaces. The first, a homely bare brick chimney, whilst the other is more prominently finished in white ceramic tiles, adding incredible character to the living space. It might need a keen eye for design and a bit of a facelift, but this property has so much potential it can’t be missed.
