About our home

Our home is a three storey townhouse from 1887. It is part of a very charming area in Vesterbro, Copenhagen called Humleby. Humleby is a small city within the city, a neighborhood originally built for employees of the B&W shipping company and Carlsberg brewery by architect Frederick Bøttger in year 1884-95 ("Humle" is Danish for hops, the scent of which could be felt weekly in the streets of Humleby until Carslberg relocated its production of beer just a few years ago). At the time of construction, the architecture was intended to suit the needs of the working family and the houses were shared by two to three families.

When we bought the house in 2011, it underwent extensive interior renovation (the exterior of the house may not be altered in order to maintain the original appearance of Humleby). The layout of the house is:

Ground floor: Kitchen and combined dining area/living room.

First floor: Two children's rooms and toilette

Second floor: Master bedroom and bathroom, with floor heating

Outdoors in front of house: Small (app. 15m2) patio with sun hours from around noon until seven o'clok in the summer.


More about us

We hope that from the description of our house and its surroundings, you can see that we love our home, Humleby and Vesterbro! And we sincerely hope that you will see the same charm that we do! In our spare time, we enjoy travelling and most things food-related.
