About our home

Centrally located house, with a magnificent view over Oslo, and a secluded private garden.

Situated on the calm and leafy Ekeberg hill, a 15 minute walk from the Bjørvika neighbourhood on the waterfront, and a 20 minute walk from the Opera House. By tram or bus, Oslo city centre is 7-8 min away.

The house is listed as a protected building under the Norwegian Cultural Heritage Act, as are the neighbouring wooden houses and a park immediately next our garden. It is a rare example of the sort of cottage, low-rise neighbourhoods common in Oslo in older times.

The house is about 150 sq. meters (1600 sq. feet) in area. It has a very spacious living room with a mezzanine and splendid views over Oslo city centre and the surrounding hills; dining room and kitchen opening on to a large porch catching the morning sun; two upstairs bedrooms, one of which opens on to a balcony catching the evening sun (sunset about 9 or 10 pm, in summer), with views over Bjørvika, the Royal Palace, etc.; a large downstairs bedroom; a bathroom with bathtub and separate shower; a separate WC on the top floor.

The house has a private, secluded garden, with a trampoline, and magnificent views over Oslo.

Private parking space for two cars.

Several bicycles are available for your use.

The new bathing spot Munch Brygge and the popular city beach, Sørenga Seawater Beach, is within 15 minutes walk or less than 10 min by bicycle. The point of embarkation for the network of Oslo fjord ferries is less than 30 minutes away by public transport or walk 35 minutes along the fjord. Using these ferries, several small islands can conveniently and cheaply be reached, many of which have beaches. The water temperature in the Oslo fjord often reaches a respectable 20C or more in the summer.

Where is it?


Charming neighbourhood of small wooden houses and low appartment buildings.

Immediately above our house, less than hundred meters walking, you can enter the Ekeberg woods, with the newly opened Sculpture park (http://ekebergparken.com/en ). The Ekeberg woods also offers great walking paths, panorama views over the Oslo fjord, a nice restaurant and several cafes, an open farm with several kinds of animals and horseback riding for children.

Just below the house, the historic Old Oslo neighbourhood has a mix of restaurants and cafes, the Medieval Ruin Park.

The Old Oslo neighbourhood faces the Oslo fjord, with the new Opera house, and exciting new developments such as "Barcode" and Sørenga. At Sørenga you find the new Seawater Beach: http://www.visitoslo.com/en/product/?TLp=1113304.
