About our home

Our lovely home was built in 1992 and we have lived here since 1997. It is located in a suburban named Grafarvogur in about 20 minute distance by bus from down town Reykjavík. Our children are 15, 17 and 21 years old so our home is not very suitable for young children.

On the ground floor we have a nice kitchen with table for five, lavatory and a living room where we also have a dinner table for six. From our living room you can walk out to a spacious sun deck equipped with barbecue and table and chairs. On the second floor we have four bedrooms, master bedroom with a king size master bed and three bedrooms with beds in sizes 110*200, 115*200 and 120*200, bathroom, laundry room and television room. From our master bedroom you can walk out on a spacious balcony.
Our neighborhood is a quiet one. In about a 3-5 minute walking distance is a small supermarket and pizzeria and in about a 10-15 minute walking distance is a shopping center with two supermarkets and several fast-food restaurants like Dominos, Subway etc. In about 5-10 minute walking distance is a very nice swimming pool with water slide, three hot tubs and sauna, here you have a link for homepage of our suburban, untortunately only in Icelandic, but if you click on "myndir" you can see pictures from our neighbourhood:
