About our home

We live in Appelviken (Bay of apples) in Bromma, which is one of the most preferred living areas in Stockholm. Probably because we live close to Stockholm city and have nature and lakes right next door. Its a very safe, upscale, relaxed area. You can bike and walk anywhere, there is hardly no traffic at all. Within walking distance, 15 min, we have a nice public beach with snackbar and facilities. There are also supermarkets, chemist, cafes, library etc just as close. When you want to go in to Stockholm city, there is our excelllent public transport which will take you 30 minutes to the city.

Our house was built 1923, its a wooden villa in typical Swedish style for that period. We have carefully restored it in light colours with wooden floors. Its beautiful and comfortable furnished with both new and antique furtnitures. Our pride is our Italian kitchen, which we have bought in Firenze, Italy. Since we work with food (husband is a chef) and own restaurants, we want a special kitchen. Our Italian kitchen was actually published in a Scandinavian Interior Magazine a year ago. You can see some of the Pictures in the end of the photos.

All rooms have charming caracter. We have free wi-fi connection in the house.

Entrance floor: Our beautiful Italian kitchen, wonderful dining room with an antique crystal glass chandelier. Living room with open fire place, 2 comfortable sofas. Nice Indoor porch/veranda surronded by windows, lots of plants. A lovely room to relax.
Upstairs we have 3 big bedrooms, 1 bathroom with bath tub and washing machine, dryer. In the lower floor we have a guest room with 2 beds, a bathroom with shower and a sauna.

The outside terrace has a walled barbeque, a wonderful place for long breakfasts and dinners during summer time. We have an old garden with flowers and a waterpond with a small waterfall. There is also plenty of space to play in the garden. Lots of green grass. Its a very nice peacefull house with a lovely garden. But the best is the location, Close both to city and nature.

We are interested in a home exchange during summer 2020.
