60s Forester's Villa: Lapland Serenity With Easy European Access

Fredrika, Sweden

Property Description

The old forester's villa in Fredrika is now for sale. The property is located near the lake with view of the lake and within walking distance to the school, shop, and the local beach. The plot is elevated and consists of mature trees, cultivable land, paved walkways, and resting places.

The house was built in brick in the 1960s and has many clever and well-constructed details. So, even if some of the rooms have worn surfaces, they retain their charming character. The house is partially a split-level with a garage and office on the lower floor. The main entrance floor has three bedrooms, a kitchen, hall, bathroom, and terrace, as well as a spacious living room with a "double-sided" fireplace, where one can light a fire both from the living room and/or the terrace.

The basement also offers a boiler room, heated garage, laundry room, pantry, storage with an extra freezer, toilet, and two bedrooms - one of which has been used as an office. The house can be sold partially furnished if desired. The boiler room has a combination boiler for heating. There's an electric heating element that heats accumulator tanks storing hot water, as well as a wood-fired boiler and a wood stove that shares a chimney with the wood boiler. A good option when electricity prices rise.

In the village of Fredrika, there's a grocery store, restaurant, church, hotel, and camping with a bathing area ranked as number two in Sweden, attracting tourists from all over Europe. The village also has a Buddhist temple situated on a mountain top, offering a fantastic view of the surrounding Swedish nature. The area is popular for hunting and fishing. In winter, locals engage in ice fishing, skating, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing on and around the lake. On clear nights, one can also catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
The forester's villa can be reached by plane and bus from all over Europe - which is unusual for properties in northern Sweden. It's just a little over an hour's bus ride from Umeå. From Umeå, trains and flights depart to other parts of Sweden and abroad.
