About our home

Full of historic charm, our amazing 212m2 (2281 sq. ft.) home has stood in the heart of Roskilde since 1916 ~ just over 100 years!

The first thing you’ll notice about our beautiful home is our huge, welcoming yard that’s full of endless outdoor opportunities for all ages to enjoy.

Sip your morning coffee or tea on the expansive patio or in the gorgeous sunroom, enjoy a picnic lunch under the apple, pear, and cherry trees in our quaint and cozy 1200m2 (12916 sq. ft.!) garden, or simply sit back and soak up the sunshine and fresh air while the children run and play to their hearts’ content. Your little ones will find hours of adventure and fun under the sun in the large treehouse with attached tree swing and on the nearby backyard trampoline.

When it’s time to head inside, you’ll be welcomed into your new home the spacious, open layout with large, picture windows that let in plenty of sunlight and fresh air. From the stunning hardwood floors to the tall ceilings, you’ll be impressed from head to toe.

It’s easy to stay tidy and organized with the adjourning mudroom that offers plenty of storage space for coats, hats, gloves, boots, and umbrellas.

The generously sized kitchen is fully furnished with a flattop stove, modern oven, plentiful counter and cabinet space, and all the kitchen tools and accessories you need to prepare all of your favorite dishes, while the open dining area is perfect for large family feasts or intimate dinners for 2.

Cozy up by the fire with King Loui, our resident cat, your favorite book , or your favorite person before retreating upstairs to your private bedroom.

Children will be delighted to have their pick of rooms –with a Princess Room, Lego Room, Soccer Room and Teen Room to choose from, each filled with a selection of toys, games, and books they’re sure to love, while you’ll appreciate your own cozy and comfortable bedroom that comes with plenty of closet space and a large, inviting bed.


More about us

  1. We’re a family of six with a cat :-) — Mom and Dad, and four kids ages 6 to 15 years.

  2. Mom is a creative designer and tailor & Dad is an experienced entrepreneur, and own several businesses. Time never stands still in our home as we’re always into finding a new adventure.

    We've just recently returned to our homeland of Denmark after spending 2 years growing a business and enjoying the fun in sun in Florida, USA. That being said, we enjoy spending time home just as much as we love going out — us Danes even have a word for cozy, charming time spent at home called “hygge” — meaning relaxing with a cup of coffee and a novel next to the fireplace is just as important as traveling the world.

  3. We love going on trips as a family — we've gone on a 1-month, 4000 mile road trip through Europe, a 2-month, 10,000 mile road trip through the U.S., and we've even been to India twice. :-) Vietnam, Thailand, Australia, and New Zealand are all next on our list, as well as heading back to Europe to explore its hidden gems.

Shoppers will love being just a 15 minute walk away from Ro's Torv, an immense shopping mall with a movie theatre, while a variety of quaint secondhand stores and the amazing city centre that hosts a market every Wednesday and Saturday are both nearby, as well.
