About our home

The original timber frame of the house is 250 years old. We moved the house from the mountains and set it up anew. So it´s both old and new, technically speaking. The house has approx 300 m2, pluss and old timber barn. It´s located on ca 10 000m2 of land in the woods (there are neighbours, so it´s not isolated). Oslo is approx 30 minutes by car or train (station ca 10 min walk), the Oslo fjord about 5 minutes by car, some smaller centers for shopping within 5-10 minutes by car. The interior reflects our love for traveling and is an international mix of Norwegian, French, Californian. The house has been featured in about 30 magazine articles, both in Scandinavia and Europe and a few books on Norwegian Interiors, and is regularly used as a location for fashion and advertising shoots. Both grown ups work with interior & garden design and psychology. In the summer it is possible to pick your own organic vegetable and salad from the garden. Our guest may feel free to do the same, of course ! We do also have a sweet, gentle, longhaired Norwegian Skogskatt ("wood-cat") as co-inhabitant.

In our experience we have the best of all (or most !) possible worlds: we get to live in nature (the woods), we have relatively quick access to urban live (Oslo, 30 minutes by car or train) and it´s quick to get to the sea (5 min by car).
Our neighborhood consists of abut 50 house, most one family or timberhouses, so there is no sense of isolation.
