6230 Sykkylven, Norway

Property Description


How would you like to change the story?
The community story of a precious property, the Norwegian story of how to
reuse a former school, and first; the story of your life, when creating a new
beginning in this beautiful location.
Have you ever seen a place where you find so many opportunities? This is not
for dreamers only, this is even for doers!

Do you have a dream of waking up every morning in a beautiful landscape, where you can breathe fresh air from the mountains? A dream that you can go to bed and it’s quiet around you, and your evening meal was a fish that
you’ve caught yourself the very same day. And the dream best of all dreams:
Knowing that the next day, you will wake up to the same again!

Norway has for a long time been at the top when prosperity and happiness is measured against other nations. How norwegians are feeling safe in times of pandemic has reinforced this.

So the interest of traveling and living in this vast country has never been higher.

In one of the most beautiful places you can imagine, there is now an opportunity for you to create your own paradise. Close to Ålesund there is a green and lush valley called Ramstaddal. From a cozy quay, where you
can find the local grocery store framed by traditional Norwegian houses, the road winds its way up along a river where you can fish your own mountain trout or small salmon.

After driving about two minutes by car, you reach a great property, which some time ago was the local elementary school. A building listed in 1954, using that time very best building materials, and which since has been generously guarded and extended. Until recently it got changed status to private residence, so the story of this unique house will continue.

In this small valley is where your opportunity for a new life begins, where you can change your own legacy. The property is ideally located for mountain hikes in the near by terrain for easy exercisers, as even for top trained
athletes. The location is as well perfect as a starting point for daily trips to the most exotic destinations this part of the world can offer.

We also see a growing desire to travel and take part in unique nature experiences. Norway stands out with pure nature, fjords and mountains that we are almost alone in the world to have. The trend of being able to move
more freely and more spontaneously with a motorhome is increasing. The location of Svindsetveien 117 is outstanding as a starting point.

I am one of those who showed up at Ramstaddal School as a 7-year-old. Full of anticipation, ready to begin the first independent era of life. My heart was beating extra at the thoughts of what was going to happen when I met all the big kids. For many years, this was the safest and most tangible I had to relate to.

As you can understand, it was with a touch of nostalgia that I received the keys in 2016. I had bought the old school without spending a thought about what was going to be the purpose!

Immediately the plans began to grow. The property is perfectly located as a base for local and peripheral excursions. Parts of the outdoor area can easily be made into a parking space for caravans. Other areas can elegantly be used for children’s play, recreation or as a gathering place around a barbecue.

The key was if I could change the status from school to private residence. Then I just had to furnish the new ward for housing for my family and me.

But then my family situation changed, and now I want to give this opportunity to someone who can see the beauty and wants to develop and use this gem for their new life.

In the primary residence you will find 3 bedrooms, neat and ready with furniture. Two are directly connected to their own bathroom, which give you a sense of exclusivity.

In the older part one of the large room can easily be remade for two bedrooms.

The kitchen in the primary residence was new in 2021 and is fully equipped with refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, microwave, induction hob and extractor fan. Plenty of drawers and a large sink. The design is two-tone mat green
and glossy white. A large and eye-catching nature photo dominates the impression and gives the kitchen an exclusive look.

Light and open space is what comes to mind when entering the livingroom. And because the kitchen is open together with livingroom, the outdoor light is coming from both sides and give you the feeling of direct connection to nature.

Floors have brand new laminate flooring.

It all used to be a huge playground for kids. Some of the play equipment is still present, and the sound of children playing is never far away.

The plot is flat and has all kinds of possibilities, even high power electric power can be provided, due to the original use of the property.

The river, where you can fish your own mountain trout or small wild salmon, is only a 50 meter walk down.

The west coast of Norway is one of the very few places in the world where the fjords to the mountains make this spectacular revelation. Within just a few hours drive from home, regardless of direction, you can experience the
most incredible scenery.

And of course, you don’t have to go anywhere. There is plenty to find, right on the door step of Svindsetvegen 117.

A fully equipped kitchen can provide all the hospitality you wish for, and the XL-sized rooms can be rebuilt for what you ever can imagine.

Today some are used for home cinema and meeting room, but feel free to create what ever you need.

After removing the huge and uneconomic ventilation system, the room in the loft was huge.

A total of 72 m2, just to develop for your own purpose.

And the electric power capacity is suddenly more than adequate to use for campers and other outdoor needs, like swimming pool etc.

From January 2021 optical fiber provides high speed internet throughout the building.
