About our home

Our home was built in 2004 on the south shore of Reykjavik, in a quiet residential area. The house is architecturally unique and has a stunning view to the ocean and it's large windows catch the warmth of the sun and tiled floors store and redistribute that warmth. Below the floors thermal water from hot springs is piped keeping the house warm on cloudy days. An open plan living room and dining room have south facing windows and adjoining kitchen windows face north. A large sundeck is south of the house with two sunbeds, a Weber coal barbecue, log table and benches and a hot tub where you can soak in thermal water. The house has two double bedrooms facing north . First bathroom has WC, sink carved from a single opal and natural stones in shower bottom with glass door, second bathroom has WC, sink and tiled shower with glass wall and door. Laundry room with washer and dryer has door to the east facing part of the garden. There are two offices facing south that are our private area. There is WiFi and TV flat screen with both local and some international stations. Kitchen has cherry-wood cabinets, a gas stove, electric oven, fridge and dishwasher. Parking for two - three cars in front. Only 4 houses on our street. There is a small restaurant in our neighborhood that also rents scooters, the BikeCave. The bus to city center is 300 m walk away and the bus-ride takes 15 min. Walk to city center takes 25-30 min. Please note that we have a dog, in case of allergies.
